I’ve been hearing a lot of talk (on other boards) about how the whole of Australia will carry to Toby to the top three ala MiG. Based on the numbers, I can’t see how this is the case.
-We only have a population of 20 million
-They don’t broadcast the show on free-to-air television, and only a small percentage have access to pay-tv
-500,000 watched last year’s finale, which is peanuts compared to 8 million viewers in the US.
-The voting window is an hour less
Even though I’m also a Melbournian, I threw some votes towards some of the girls like Storm instead, with Tobes is one of my least favourite contestants.
