In probably one of the most unfortunate things to watch on television on a reality TV show…Kelsey Martinovich was announced as the winner of “Australi’s Next Top Model” but apparently the real winner was Amanda Ware.

TV host Sarah Murdoch received the wrong feed during the live telecast and had to explain to the models after they had given their speech that the announcement was wrong and Amanda was the real winner.

We can see during the telecast, host Sara Murdoch receiving the news. Murdoch then said:

I don’t know what to say right now. I’m feeling a bit sick about this.

I’m so sorry, oh my God, I don’t know what to say. This is a complete accident, I’m so sorry.

It was fed to me wrong.

This is what happens when you have live TV folks, this is insane, insane, insane.

Despite the awkward situation and probably one of the worst blunders in television, you do have to give credit to Sarah Murdoch who handled the situation with honesty and the two finalists taking it in stride.
