About The Show
We are always on the look out for contestants who have an interesting story. Our latest contestant Jamie has an amazing and inspirational story and really got into the Splat! Show spirit.
Jamie is a semi-professional footballer who was on the edge of football greatness before he suffered a life changing injury towards the end of 2017. The injury put an end to his dreams and Jamie went into a deep depression as he started his recovery. Being told your dream is over is never easy to take and it hit Jamie hard. Jamie was told by his Doctors that he might never walk again but to the surprise of his medical team he started to respond very well to treatment. He made a miracle recovery and was able to walk again but Jamie was still very depressed and down. Thankfully Jamie pulled himself together and started to look the future and decided to give modeling a go. We approached Jamie to see if he would be interested in coming on the show and he said yes and we are so happy he did.
This is a fantastic show that not only features our world famous Gunge Tank and Gungings but is also a show that showcases Jamie, a guy who did not give up. Jamie came for some Gunge Therapy and we couldn’t be happier to feature him. Enjoy the show!
This Show Features…
The Splat! Interview
In the Splat! interview we dig deep into Jamie’s story and why he decided to come on the show. We always make a point of getting to know our guests and more than most, this interview shows that no matter what happens in life, you have to keep going. Jamie could of just given up but he wouldn’t be on the show if he did and we are glad he didn’t give up because he is one of the strongest new guests this season. Of course the interview ends with Jamie’s first tanking! Splat! Fan Club members can watch this interview as part of their monthly subscription on the Splat! Fan club and also get a discount on this show.
DIY Foam Me Up
Jamie, fresh from his first shower takes on his first game. Foam me up with a DIY twist. For each incorrect answer that Jamie gives us, he will be handed a plate of foam which he has to cover his body with. The same Foam Me Up rules apply, once his is “Foamed Up” it’s game over and his second taking awaits.
Be Wetter The Better Or Slimed and Stupid
Jamie joined us on a day where we had a brand new game to play and we think it’s a new classic. In Wetter The Better Or Slime and Stupid, Jamie has to try and avoid the slime and instead get wet. Three massive water balloons hang above Jamie’s head and these are his targets. For each correct answer one of the balloons is popped over Jamie’s head. Jamie has to get through the maths based quiz and pop all three of his water balloons before the quiz ends. If any of the Balloons remain then he has failed. Jamie must get three questions right to remain Wetter and Better otherwise he will be branded Slimed and Stupid and a taking awaits. And yes, Jamie did bring a set of his own clothes to play in for this round.
Splat! Carnival Collection
It’s time for our round of Physical Games as Jamie plays Balls To That and Splat! Ring Toss. Jamie has to get 50 balls into his singlet within 60 seconds to avoid getting pied ten times and has to complete the ring toss to avoid a tanking. Will this athlete rise to the challenge or will he fail?
Custard has been in short supply this season. We correct that with Jamie’s Custard Caper. A crazy pie throwing game that sees Jamie absolutely covered in custard and cream. After Jamie’s success in the last round it’s back to reality for Jamie has he fails to stop the pies coming his way and fails stops the tank from adding to his messy torment.
The Splat! Debrief
After a longer than usual Splat! Show (we had to re-shoot one game after it didn’t record) Jamie is ready for his Splat! Debrief interview and his final Gunging of the Show. It was a great pleasure to work with Jamie and see this young man overcome his recent troubles. We hope to see him back on the show very soon!

ou might have noticed that I haven’t done a blog for a while. Cards on the table, my health hasn’t been good and I really wasn’t in a fit state to help with Roan’s show (apparently you all really REALLY like Roan) and personal issues kept me away from the Kyle shoot as well (I was absolutely gutted to miss that one because Kyle was damn good fun to work with at Easter… though given that HQ STILL has the whiff of gravy maybe I got away lightly). Last week we took the decision to postpone a shoot due to the heatwave so today was the first opportunity to make a much needed trip back to HQ.
