Gus Pricasso Portrait

Gus think he's getting his portrait taken by a world renowned artist, well he is known overseas, but not for the reason you would think.

The artist's name is Pricasso and he is famous for doing portraits, with, you guessed it. His old fella! Watch the video below.

Gus got a bit of a surprise when he sat down with what he thought would be a "serious" portrait, something he could put straight in the pool room.

Within a couple of seconds, off come the pants and on goes the paint and Pricasso starts to slash and dab out Gus' likeness.

He was a good sport about it all though, sitting through the whole session and to be honest, the end result is pretty impressive!

America's biggest "Jackass", Steve-O, stuntman, daredevil and comedian met Triple M's jackarses... The Grill Team! Listen to the uncensoed interview below.

Steve-O's in Oz for the MTV 'Guilty As Charged' Tour. It's his darkest challenge and something he's been doing for the last couple of years - stand-up comedy!

"So what's the basis, when you get up and do stand-up comedy? What's the cornerstone of your stand-up routine?" asked Matty.

"It's filthy experiences that I've had. I'm more of a raunchy type comedian for example, I'm just shameless enough to tell you about the time I got my d*ck sucked by a transvestite."

He also told the guys about some of his other 'gnarly' experiences as he called them, having an intervention staged for him by his buddy Johnny Knoxville, getting arrested in Sweden and a LOT more. Listen to the full audio below.

Jesinta Campbell On The Grill Team

Miss Universe Australia 2010 had some running tips for Gus and shed some light on boyfriend Buddy Franklins struggles.

As the new face of City2Surf, Jesinta Campbell had some great running tips and encouragement for Gus for his current training for his New York Marathon.

She also shed some light on her boyfriend and Sydney Swans superstar, Buddy Franklin's hard time over the weekend playing his former club the Hawthorn Hawks.

"You see him getting heckled and you see the crowd yelling things to him and as a sportsman it's part of it and you get used to dealing with it." Jesinta said.

"He was a massive part of that club for nine years and he was playing against his best friends he's grown up with, and he still has a great admiration and respect for that football club,"

"I think it's really difficult for him when he goes [to Melbourne]."

"But I’d be lying if I said I didn't think it affected him."

"I find it a little bit disrespectful. All of a sudden the supporters have forgotten the nine years."

Supergrass: More Tigers Woes, Farah Feuds And Masterchef Final Protests

Triple M's Supergrass delivers another week of rumour including Wests Tigers, Robbie Farah and Masterchef.



Triple M's Supergrass
has delivered The Grill Team another week of rumour and innuendo including some massive news from the Wests Tigers camp.

"James Tedesco announced earlier on in the year that he would go to Canberra...Tedesco and Farah are managed by the same guy, Sam Ayoub. Robbie told his manager he would leave him unless he got Tedesco out of his Canberra contract." Supergrass told the Triple M Grill Team.

"Now a manager, as we all would, would very much panic when he hears that he is about to lose a $900,000 player so the manager then went and told James Tedesco that if he was to stay at Wests Tigers, he would make sure that Mick Potter wasn't at the club next year"  

Other stories on Supergrass include:

- More Farah news including his 'request for a release from the Tigers'

- Robbie Farah's manager's claims of players 'falling out' with Mick Potter

“Oh Jesus Christ, I’m flat out and it’s raining, I’m really scared ‘cause the car is like — oh my God, this guy’s shooting at me."

“My car’s gonna run out fuel before I get ... I really need the police otherwise I’m gonna get shot."

Gus Runs For Youngcare Photo: Triple M

Miss Universe 2010, Jesinta Campbell is the new face of the City2Surf. With the race coming up she told the boys about her running preparations.

As Matty mentioned, Gus has recently been doing his own preparations for his New York Marathon, including running a half marathon near Uluru.

Jesinta On The Grill Team


"Jesinta, a member of The Grill Team - Gus Worland just did a half marathon."

"How'd you go? I'm proud of you bro."

"Jesinta, you were telling us you were running a half marathon, with about three kilometres to go you tore your calf muscle off the bone, what time did you do in the end?"

"I did it in two hours"

"Well Gus completed a marathon in Uluru, on the complete flat in Uluru, just over three hours"

"Umm wow...people do a full marathon in three hours"

The boys calculated it and it works out to be about 7kms/hr... we reckon some people can walk quicker than that! With that info they thought they might share with Jesinta, a few things FASTER than Gus Worland.

How do you think he went?

We then had a Cessnock family reunion, Andrew Johns was in for his footy preview, so they decided to also get their dad Garry Johns on the line.

"Now it's 25 to 9, how many beers in are we Gaz?" Matty asked his Dad.

"I've had two actually, I was up early this morning" responded Gary.

Ray 'Rabs' Warren has been 'the voice' of Rugby League for over 30 years. As a good friend of the Grillers, Rabs came into the studio share some of the history of his huge career which is detailed in his new book, 'The Voice'.

"Your broadcasting career Rabs... it's not just footy mate, five decades, three Melbourne Cups, Commonwealth Games, Olympic Games, swimming... tennis and, of course, State of Origins and Grand Finals" said Gus. on Triple M's Grill Team.

"Writing this book with [journo] Andrew Webster [do you] look back and go, 'oh my god, I can't believe that I've done as much as I've done?'."

"Well, no I can't believe the whole story, this book goes why back to when I was a little kid of 6 years of age and how all this started... I got obsessed by listening to a commentator called Ken Howard and that's what I decided, at very young age, that I wanted to be a sports commentator" explained Rabs.

"I didn't care what I called, whether it was the horse racing or tennis, swimming... to look back and think that I actually got my hands on all those sports, it's mind-boggling, it's humbling and it's been a wonderful, wonderful journey - believe me."

Rabs goes on to reveal his famous 'phobias' and his "mother's remedies" for them, as well as a brilliant montage to the great man at the end.

Gus Worland: Marathon Man

Gussy's involved in a new project… and you guessed it, it's got something to do with weight loss! It's a new TV show on Foxtel called 'Gus Worland: Marathon Man'… “Did you say ‘Gus Worland: Mammoth Man?’,” joked Matty.

Inspired by his 'best mate Hugh Jackman', after a few bevvies one night, Gus decided that after five years it was finally time to do something about his weight and run the New York Marathon.

When Gus unveiled the news to the boys they weren't AS supportive as Jacko. However, Gus threw ‘em a bone saying there was a trip to NY in it for them. After that they became a bit more interested in the idea. Surprise, surprise.

They’ll be doing the show from New York! The last week of October and Gus will be running the marathon on November 2nd. The Grill Team is on Triple M 104.9FM 6-9AM Weekdays.

'Gus Worland: Marathon Man' will air on the A&E Channel on Foxtel later this year.
