Karl Stefanovic has become an Australian household name and is loved by many devoted viewers who tune in to hear his opinion on breakfast show TODAY, but on yesterday’s show, the star was not his happy-go-lucky self.
The 43-year-old revealed that he would boycott the TV Week Logies if they were to be held in any other state than Victoria.
“I’m telling you right now - if the Logies move from Melbourne I’m boycotting them. I will not be going to the Logies if they’re outside of Melbourne,” he told co-host Lisa Wilkinson, 50.
He went on to describe it as a “huge, huge loss” for the city and even blasted the Victorian Premier for allowing it to happen.
“This is a joke of giant proportions - Kevin Andrews has lost the plot completely,” he insisted.
“For $1 million the advertising Victoria gets is second to none. You may as well have the Ekka in Perth. You may as well have the Hamilton Island race week on Fitzroy Island.
“This is disgusting and I will be boycotting the Logies until they’re back in Melbourne at Crown Casino.”
Stefanovic's outburst comes after the Tourism and Events Minister John Eren announced that the government decided to withdraw its 2018 bid after speaking to key stakeholders and undertaking a comprehensive event analysis.
While it's not yet confirmed which state will win, we hope this is just an empty threat from Stefanovic who has been known to make the Logies a whole lot more entertaining with a drink in hand.
