smoothfm listener wins over $57,000 thanks to Aussie delicacy

Former Features Editor

smoothfm has delivered a $57,100 cheque to a local listener for guessing the correct mystery word with Matt Preston.

The competition had been running since May 1, with more than 220 listeners attempting to complete this sentence from the Masterchef judge: “One of my favourite things about Australia is how much we all love …”

Mother of three Fran from Mona Vale correctly guessed the mystery word to be “Cabanossi”, with morning announcer Ty Frost confirming the news.

“I’ve been listening all the time on the radio when I go to work, when I come home from work… I’ve got these days off and it’s just like my guardian angels are looking down on me,” Fran said.

Fran is the fifth major winner of smooth’s mystery word, a competition which has given away almost $300,000 since starting on the station.

This competition, to me, smacks of false pretences.In my opinion, most people, unless being an afficionado on small goods, would never have heard of this smallgood concoction.Therefore, it is false pretences to claim it”is” never mind what Matt Preston may, in his possible flash of unreality may think it’s connection to aUSTRALIANS’ ””LOVE” TO BE.i FOR ONE DON’T LIKE Cabanossi!! Does that make me, “UNAUSTRALIAN”?

As a vegetarian I have no interest in Cabanossi it was a really silly choice!!! Also I don’t think it’s such a big favourite with Aussies anyway from what I have seen..

That is ridiculous .. don’t speak for all Australians by saying “everybody loves cabanossi” I hate cabanossi. How was anyone meant to guess that. I say this is rigged. How did this lady even guess cabanossi. Something all Australians love is BBQ that’s it. This radio station shits me now and I won’t be listening anymore. #boycot
