Excuse us, it has just come to our attention that as the country got lost in the frenzy of The Bachelor finale last week, we missed a terribly unimportant but highly entertaining radio moment.
But don’t worry. We’re here to rectify that.
This happened on Wednesday morning, but The Edge also went onto start airing the exchange as a promotional sound bite for the show.
And, well, it’s easy to see why. Because things started out a teensy bit awkward.
“Well it’s finale week of The Bachelor where Nick finally chooses the one he wants to be with. We’ve got the host of The Bachelor, Osher Gunsberg, on the line,” Emma announced.
Only, she made a bit of a blooper. She pronounced Osher’s surname ‘Goonsberg’ instead of ‘Ginsberg’.
I KNOW. I know.
It might be an easy mistake for many Aussies to make (sorry, Osh, that’s just how we were taught to pronounce a ‘u’ in that context)… but probably not something you want to do on-air with him.
“It’s ‘Ginsberg’, Emma,” Osher replied, promptly correcting her. “And lovely to talk with you.”
“Oh, sh*t,” Emma said sheepishly, before her co-host Mike jumped in.
“I was saying to Emma it’s ‘Ginsberg’. She was saying – and this is all off air – no its ‘Goonsberg’. And I’m like, you know what, you just intro it then.”
