It’s two weeks since we reported that “A Friend in London” frontman Tim Schou and fellow singer Kat Stephie had made it to the semi-finals of the Danish celebrity diving show “Stjerner På Vippen”. The news garnered a lot of attention from readers, who were clearly thrilled with their success (I’m going to pretend that Wiwi readers aren’t so shallow as to be only interested in Tim’s body). Since then Tim and Kat reached and won the final, which took place on Monday 10 September 2013.
The pair had to work hard for the winner’s trophy. As it was the final they couldn’t merely belly-flop into the pool. No, only fancy acrobatics and somersaults would do. And for the grand finale they had to leap from a 10 metre high springboard. Just as well neither of them suffer from vertigo.
The duo proved to be popular winners, with almost 400,000 Danes tuning in to see them crowned champions. In fairness though, judging from the pictures, they didn’t face much competition from the other celebs. They look like a right motley crew. Was that guy covered in tattoos ever going to win? Still, we here at wiwibloggs like to think that we helped motivate Tim towards victory, afterall he did tweet about our last post. If you’re reading this time Tim, well done and send our congratulations to Kat.
Now that the venue has been picked for Eurovision 2014 the Danes will need to focus their attention on other aspects of the show, such as the interval act. Maybe Tim and Kat might volunteer and do an encore of their winning performance? You know, just so the rest of us could admire the … ermm … intricacies of their dives? Obviously seeing Tim’s buff body again would be purely incidental to our enjoyment.
We’ve been busted! After all the celebrations Tim managed to set some time aside to read wiwibloggs.com and he’s seen right through us! Here’s what he tweeted on 11 September.
