Let the games begin
Tvplus’s Emile Butler and his fiancé Gareth O’Brien got to experience first-hand what you’ll see on Power Couple SA.
Power Couple SA Season 1 Thursdays (from 10 September) M-Net 19:30
“I always thought that I could sing. Not that I’m SA’s next Idol, but I can carry a tune,” says tvplus staffer Emile Butler. “I love a good beat, I have rhythm, I sing in the shower and I’m a fan of karaoke. However, my perfect little musical world came crashing down when my fiancé Gareth O’Brien and I took part in the Power Couple SA (2015- current) Media Day…” 20 challenges in the show.’ There are actually 25 challenges – the extra five are back-ups in case something happens… like the fire that ravaged Table Mountain earlier this year, forcing the production team to swap out a couple of the challenges. Then comes the real eye-opener: ‘Today is a prep day. We’re physically testing all the equipment, so you’re our guinea pigs,’ Handrie says.”
