28 Sunday Territorian, Sunday, April 4, 2010 www.sundayterritorian.com.au www.sundayterritorian.com.au Sunday Territorian, Sunday, April 4, 2010 29 P U B : S U N D A Y D A T E : 4 -A P R -2 0 1 0 P A G E : 2 8 C O L O R : C (2 8 ) M (2 8 ) Y (2 8 ) K (2 8 ) Yearning to be an Avatar star prole BEFORE Scott Tweedie became the host of Prank Patrol on ABC3, he was busy studying at uni and working part-time for a radio station, as well as running around streets giving out freebies and filming little projects with his mates. While his show increases its fan base every week, Scott Tweedie would be happy to trade it all and become an Avatar. Why? I think that world they live in looks amazing, their skin colour is blue how cool and they can fly, he said. Oh, and they get to walk around in boxer shorts all day, too. Theyre living the dream! FACT STUFF Name: Scotty Tweedie. Age: 22. Nicknames: Tweeds, Tweedie-bird. Famous for: Host of Prank Patrol on ABC3. Date of Birth: January 29, 1988. Star sign: Aquarius. Birthplace: Brisbane. Currently lives: Brisbane. Eye colour: Blue. Hair colour: Brown. Height: 185cm. Pets: No, but would love a dog! Used to have a ripper golden Labrador. Do you have a girlfriend? Who wants to know? Siblings: Two older sisters. Hobbies: Surfing, camping, fishing, watching TV, making videos, and trying to learn to cook! FAVOURITE STUFF Clothes: Super comfy boardies to go surfing in. Food: You cant beat a butter chicken, or even better, Thai red duck curry! Mmmm! Music: I love pretty much everything; but I can tell you what I dont like: opera! Colour: Blue, all different shades of it! Movie: Wedding Crashers, Avatar, Forest Gump, Home Alone, Role Models... and the list goes on and on. Book: Wheres Wally! Or travel books on the next destination I dream of travelling to. Holiday destination: Overseas: Spain, so many different places to visit. In Australia: North Stradbroke Island off Queensland. Go there and you will know why! Sport to watch: Cricket, Rugby League (State of Origin), and Rugby Union. Car: A Kombi Van. Dont have one, but one day! INTERESTING STUFF Whats the best thing about being famous? Its weird seeing yourself on TV and having the occasional boy or girl asking to help 'prank' a friend. I love it that, when kids have someone to prank, they want to run it by me first! And yes, they do leave with many ideas up their sleeve, so always keep an eye out for your friends! What are the highlights of being the host of Prank Patrol? Being paid to meet awesome new kids and filming at new and different locations every day. Also, getting to blow up stuff, dress up heaps and have food fights. The most priceless part of my job, though, is witnessing reactions of the pranks first-hand. Money cant buy that. What has been the most memorable prank so far? I cant give away too much, but there is a school prank involving a helicopter, the internet, a live news report and government agents. We pranked three students and they totally fell for it. Have you ever done anything embarrassing on TV? Some would say getting into a tutu, a skintight disco suit, or even riding around on a threeyear-olds tricycle in a skate park may be a tad embarrassing. Ha! ha!

A wacky, high-energy game for you TITLE: Sonic & Sega Allstars Racing PLATFORM: Nintendo DS DEVELOPER: Sumo Digital AGE: G REVIEWER: Joel Reines EVER wished you could hit the race track with some of your favourite Sega characters at the wheel? Then this is the wacky, high-energy game that you have been looking for. With more than 20 different tracks to unlock and vehicles ranging from trucks to bikes, cars to airplanes, Sonic Sega All-Stars is nothing less then a tweenies racing haven. Each of the 24 tracks is filled with tight turns, wild jumps and even a few branching paths, providing you with plenty of edge-of-your seat thrilling action. One unexpected surprise from Sega All-Stars racing is how realistic the action is as, the faster you go, the harder the car becomes to handle. For this reason, with up to four players possible, multi-player provides you with ample electrifying action. And, with everyone from Dr Egg Man to Tails to AIAI, you have all of your favourite Sonic Sega characters to choose from. However, its not a grand prix finish for Sega AllStars Racing: the game does have a few glitches. For example, I hope you dont eat dinner right before playing as the camera angles, when youre turning, are enough to make you ill. Overall, Sonic Sega All-Stars Racing is a great new racing game, with a wide range of tracks, vehicles and characters to choose from. RATING: All about inner childishness HEY kids, do you like to embrace your inner childishness? Well heres your chance to find out all there is to know about it. The Encyclopedia of Immaturity (Australian Edition) is your complete guide to never growing up. Its full of mischief, mayhem fun and games but dont tell your mum! FOR your chance to win this great prize, thanks to our friends at Angus and Robertson Darwin, cut out the cover and send it with your name, address and daytime phone number to Childrens Great Explorers , c/- Sunday Territorian, PO Box 1401, Darwin, NT 0801, by last mail Thursday.
