Andy Lee and one hundred of his closest personal strangers are about to find out who we really are on Channel Nine’s new show, The Hundred.
How many Australians have had plastic surgery? How many of us have never seen the ocean? And why do the people in the southern states prefer a café latte while the rest of the nation goes for a flat white (except in regional Australia, where they’ll take “a cappuccino extra hot, thanks mate”)?
The Hundred is a weekly, one-hour, prime-time comedy panel show featuring 100 everyday Australians from all around the country, joining Andy and his guest panellists via a giant 27-square metre screen. Handpicked to represent the makeup of Australia, “The Hundred” are standing by to be polled live and give us the stories behind the stats.
Each week, comedians and celebrities will battle it out to prove who really knows Australia best, challenging “The Hundred” and unpacking the facts along the way. Whatever story has gripped the nation each week, we’ll be able to find out what Australia really thinks about it.
Taking the pulse of the nation and drawing on real stats, what do the numbers really say about us? Australia’s about to find out.
How many Australians have had sex in the workplace? What’s the most common day to be born? What is the most common day to die? How many of us check our partner’s phones, and how many of us don’t even own a phone?
Host Andy Lee said: “The Hundred is kind of like reverse Gogglebox. Gogglebox is everyday people sitting in their homes and picking apart TV shows, whereas The Hundred is a TV show diving into everyday people’s homes and learning more about their lives.
“It’s been over a year in the making and we’ve uncovered some amazing stats along the way as well as some really boring ones. In a bold decision, we’ve decided to leave the boring ones out of the show. In a post-truth era, The Hundred fearlessly crunches the numbers to find out who we really are, in a laugh-out-loud format.”
