Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

FOR­MER Big Brother host Gre­tel Killeen got a last minute call-up to MC the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Women in Con­struc­tion (NAWIC) awards last Thurs­day af­ter Jamila Rizvi was un­able to make it.

Killeen, from Syd­ney, opened the sev­enth an­nual awards by say­ing how much she loved Perth but didn’t un­der­stand our ob­ses­sion with hug­ging or our pa­tience at pedes­trian cross­ings.

“Even the woman who picked me up in the hire car hugged me,” the mother-of-two said.

“You all wait for the pedes­trian lights even when there’s no traf­fic.”

Killeen was last in Perth at Christ­mas when she drove from Perth to Broome with her daugh­ter.
