The top 10 awkward moments on TV

Something with great actors delivering sharp lines in good sets… what could be better? The opposite of course! The only thing more watchable than a great moment in TV is a terrible one, when things go gloriously wrong. Here’s 10 moments those involved wish they could have avoided.

1. It’s often the duty of a sports presenter to introduce famous people who have shown up to witness whatever event they’re hosting. And so it fell to Sandy Roberts to present Miss Australia Lorraine Dick to his audience at the Mount Gambier Cup in 1982. To the amusement of the viewers, however, he announced her as “Leanne Cock”.

2. It was supposed to be a show-stopper moment, Hugh Jackman was to ride a zipline from the top of the Sydney Opera House to the stage where Oprah Winfrey was waiting to broadcast to the world. He overshot the stop, and smashed face first into a lighting rig.

3. Embarrassing (and seriously dangerous) because they’re supposed to be the car guys, was the Top Gear segment where host Richard Hammond was to drive a jet-powered car in 2006. But at more than 400km/h a tyre burst, the car crashed and Hammond spent two weeks in a coma.

4. Sometimes the outfit you pick in the wardrobe department looks absolutely fantastic in real life, but on camera … not so much. That’s what The Project regular Gorgi Coghlan found recently when she opted for a demure blue and tan dress that due to an unfortunate placement of seams, looked as though it was revealing more than it actually was. Social media erupted and a mortified Coghlan apologised. “I’ll be in a turtle-neck tomorrow night,” she said.

5. Perhaps more mortifying than just embarrassing was the moment Australia’s Next Top Model host Sarah Murdoch announced – live – that model Kelsey Martinovich was the series’ 2010 finale winner. Seconds later Murdoch heard the producers in her earpiece, looked aghast and announced she had it wrong. “It’s Amanda [Ware],” Murdoch said, “I’m so sorry. It was fed to me wrong. Oh God. This is what happens when you have live TV, folks. This is insane. Insane, insane, insane.”

6. It was a moment where “the spectators became more interesting than the sport”, according to one analyst, when the Abbott government delivered its 2015 budget but viewers were more concerned with the fact the ABC team covering the event looked like they were reporting from the middle of a cyclone. “They were more comfortable than it may have appeared,” an ABC spokesman later said.

7. Recently crowned as Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins was always going to pull a crowd when it was announced she’d take part in a fashion parade at a Sydney Westfield in 2004. What she didn’t know is she’d become a worldwide sensation when news cameras caught her strutting down the catwalk… and kept rolling as she lost her dress and show the world her red G-string undies. “I wish I wore better underwear,” she later joked.

8. When Taylor Swift won the MTV award for Best Female Video in 2009, all she wanted to do was thank her friends, family and fans. But Kanye West had other plans, rushing the stage to grab her microphone and tell the world that in his not-so-humble opinion, Beyonce should have won. Taylor looked devastated, Beyonce looked stunned and Kanye? Well let’s just say he looked exactly like what he is.

9. Schoolboy humour had its moment in the sun when singer Guy Sebastian was introducing an act he had mentored in an episode of The X-Factor Australia in 2010. “Well, I met these girls on a tour that I did a little while ago, and they blew me away then, and then they walked into the audition room and blew me again,” Sebastian said, before realising what he had just said. Judges Kylie Minogue, Kyle Sandilands and Ronan Keating – plus the studio audience – all cracked up. Guy however, just looked horrified.

10. And finally, it wasn’t a celebrity or a sports star, just an excited Apple iPhone buyer who created one of Australian TV’s most cringe-worthy moments. In 2014 when the world was excitedly waiting for the iPhone 6 to arrive, fans queued up for hours, or in the case of Jack Cooksey of Perth, overnight. In he went, a purchase was made and he came out to show off the new device to the news cameras. He struggled with the lid, eventually gave the box one last pull and out came the phone, landing hard on the concrete footpath. “It’s all good! It’s all good!” he said as the assembled crowd gasped in unison.
