About Bogan Hunters
Boganologist Pauly Fenech and his team of hunters, bogan translator Shazza Jones and security leader Kev the Kiwi, are on a national quest to find Australias Greatest Bogan.
They will leave no flanno unturned as their search takes them to the most bogan suburbs of Australia where booze, boobs, buttocks, bongs, bikes, burnouts, tatts, uggs, mullets and missing teeth proudly reign supreme.
A panel of celebrity judges, including Angry Anderson, Jonesy, Miss Nude Australia, Tahir Bilgic, Jacko, Derek Boyer and Rob Shehadie, will choose the biggest bogan of the week to send through to the BOGAN HUNTERS Grand Final.
The finalists will have to prove themselves once and for all in a final bogan showdown before Australias Greatest Bogan is crowned. The winner will be awarded the Golden Thong Award and a second-hand customised Aussie flag ute, complete with kegs.
Let the bogan hunt begin!
