Did Karma bite Jules?

Yesterday’s Blackout Challenge with Sophie Monk ended with Jules chucking worms at Sophie.  It didn’t go down too well.

Today, she may just have had her revenge.

“This was the cruellest, most mean-spirited thing that has ever happened to me in the industry and I’ve already been given a broken foot, head lice and had my head shaved this year”, said Jules.

Today’s Challenge?  Jules could fulfil his childhood dream of cuddling lion cubs by allowing Sophie to steamroll over his laptop.  So what did he choose?  The cubs or the laptop?  It doesn’t really matter because Sophie steamrolled over it anyway before Jules had a chance to think about it.

Sophie Monk Face-to-Face with a bird, but that wasn't the worst of it

The next instalment in 2Day FM Breakfast Blackout Challenges appeared today.

While Merrick and Jules have been blind folded the last couple of times, this time it was Sophie’s turn.

Her first reaction, “Oh this is nice”.

But that soon changed when she found out she had to jump in and be face to face with the World's Deadliest Bird.  “I would rather bungy jump with no cord”, Sophie said.

The bird run was fine, it was what Jules did to her at the end that made things a whole lot worse for her.
