The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - CONFIDENTIAL -

WHEN se­lect­ing a host for an event, it’s im­por­tant to choose wisely.

And choos­ing a Eu­mundi bar­rel racer to MC a Bris­bane fash­ion event prob­a­bly didn’t fol­low that rule.

For­mer Aus­tralian Sur­vivor fi­nal­ist Tara Pitt (pic­tured) was in a tad over her head when she ar­rived to MC the Apex Aus­tralia Teenage Fash­ion and Arts (AATFA) Youth Fes­ti­val at Mount Gra­vatt last week­end.

Clearly hav­ing ne­glected to read over the script, she stum­bled through a se­ries of mis­pro­nun­ci­a­tions as she strug­gled to keep up with the fash­ion lingo. It was hard not to feel for Pitt as she pro­nounced chic as “chick” and vis­cose as “vis-cos-cee” and fum­bled her way through four long fash­ion pa­rades as au­di­ence mem­bers at­tempted to muf­fle their gig­gles. The Eu­mundi mum had a laugh as she admit­ted her knowl­edge of fash­ion was lim­ited. As en­dear­ing as it was painful, it was a les­son in com­ing pre­pared.
