Looks like the Stefanovic brothers have a relationship like any other siblings after this response from Karl Stefanovic on the Logies red carpet!
Kyle and Jackie O sent trusty Intern Pete to the annual TV Week Logies again this year (will we ever learn..?) to get all the goss from the Aussie celebs as they arrived at the awards.
One person who wasn’t particularly thrilled to see Pete was Karl Stefanovic after their previous encounter on a Logie red carpet…
In case you missed it, last year Pete was so enthusiastic about speaking with Karl that he SPAT on him! Completely accidental of course, but seriously Pete, didn’t anybody ever teach you to say it not spray it?
Karl joked about the incident as he walked up to Pete last night saying, “again!”, as he covered his eye, pretending to wipe the spit away.
“Slow it down! Just talk slowly,” Karl coached.
Now that Pete’s saliva was under control, it was time to get down to business. And by business, we of course mean asking Karl the hard hitting question, will he be heading back to the Today Show.
Many fans were completely shocked at the end of last year when the breakfast TV show culled their staff, getting rid of not only Karl, but his brother Pete and his sister-in-law Sylvia Jeffreys.
This meant that this was actually the first Logie awards in a long time where Karl didn’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn the next day to host a live TV show! (Which is particularly disappointing… we all remember THAT morning after the Logies)
Ever since, people have been hoping that they will eventually bring Karl back on board. And so Pete decided to find out if there was any possibility of that happening.
“So, tell us, the big question, you’ve said to throw it at you, are you waking up with Today next year?” Pete asked.
While Karl gave us no indication of this ever happening in the nearby future, he did seem to admit that he’s still a Today show viewer! In fact, he took a little dig at his brother Peter in the process.
“No, I’m Waking Up With Today tomorrow,” Karl answered.
“Yeah, my brother’s on another show, so I’m waking up with Channel Nine,” he joked, referring to his Peter’s new brekkie gig on Sky News.
Karl on the other hand has been very busy working on his other show on Channel Nine, This Time Next Year, telling Intern Pete that it’s all filmed and ready to go.
“It’s going to be great,” he said. “It’s all done. Good to go to air in the next month or so and it’s fabulous.”
So if you miss seeing Karl Stefanovic on your TV screens like we do, keep an eye out for that one!
