Sarah Murdoch on A Current Affair Talks About Australia's Next Top Model Live Finale Disaster

Australia’s Next Top Model Finale: Sarah Murdoch Speaks Out

She held her silence for most of yesterday, but last night Sarah Murdoch—along with finalists Amanda Ware and Kelsey Martinovich—gave an exclusive interview to A Current Affair to give her side of what happened at the Australia’s Next Top Model live finale, when she mistakenly announced Kelsey as the winner before correcting herself and saying it was actually Amanda. The incident has made headlines worldwide, and while she was on live TV Sarah said the information had been “fed to me wrong.” Then Foxtel’s publicity director Jamie Campbell said it was miscommunication, a sentiment Sarah echoed on ACA.

When Karl Stefanovic asked Sarah what she heard through her earpiece, she admitted that at the time of the announcement she heard nothing, but that moments before the last thing she had heard was, “Kelsey, one, Amanda, two.” She made a judgement call and announced Kelsey as the winner, only later realising what had happened. Sarah told Karl, “We had to clear this up in that moment. We had to make it right.” So in the end it all came down to a technical glitch—something that could’ve been avoided if they gave Sarah a card with the winner’s name, though they deliberately avoided it. What does Sarah think of live TV now? She laughed, saying, “Don’t know if I love live TV so much anymore. Might go for pre-recorded.” You can watch the full interview here.
