Not to torture anyone with a play by play, but I know some of our Australian friends have to wait to see the episode on Youtube, so I thought I’d do a very brief recap. Those Down Under may be familiar with the names and places.

--The episode took place on the Gold Coast. The team was invited there by naturalist and field biologist Gary Opit. He had an encounter on a nature preserve there as well as heard some recent knocks.

--Yowie researcher Pixie Burns (sp?) escorted Moneymaker around Mt Warren Park showing him what they eat.

--The team had heard reports that made the Yowie of Australia much more aggressive, a man-eater even, than that of our NA Sasquatch. They spoke to aboriginals who told them Yowie was not dangerous but one needed to respect them.

--One eyewitness showed them a tree where he believes a Yowie had hung his 8 eviscerated goats 14 feet up, all along one branch.

--Bobo tried to play a didgeridoo to attract the Yowie. Fail.

--Cliff did some clapping and they did some tree knocking. They heard some responses back.

--Moneymaker wonders if Yowie howl like Bigfoot, since no one they talked to mentioned it.

--The team GPS collared a kangaroo to follow back to its troop. They thought maybe kangaroo were food for Yowie like deer are for Bigfoot.

--Bobo heard chatter/voices/gibberish talking just like he has heard in NA from Bigfoot. He was psyched about that.

--Moneymaker, Bobo and Cliff concluded: “They are here.”
  Ranae wasn’t convinced.

HAPPY NEW YEAR UMers!!!

"What's that?........."
"Sounds like some kind of faint noise.... like voices..."
"Too bad it is too soft for the Camera to pick up...."

I hate the shows that use this technique. Stuff that "Does not show up on TV", that is evidence of whatever idea is being put forward.

"Did you see that???"
"Did you hear that????"
"Do you smell that??"

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Strange how all the really cool stuff always happens just out of frame to the camera or that noise is just too low for the microphone to pick up and then of course, "Hey! Can you smell that?". The biggest perveyor of that sort of thing was "Ghost Hunter". Looks like MM and the gang have been to school this season.

Yes I particularily loved when as they were driving to the naturalists place they kept talking about how they were in new territory and knew almost nothing about Yowies, Yet after the naturalist tells his story Bobo immediately says yup you got yowies in Australia. These folks are beyond a joke and it is almost sad to watch though like any train wreck you cant look away.

I did want to see the part where they talked to the aboriginals because I wanted to see if they were true aborignals and not someone that is like 1/16th and thinks they are true bloods. From the trailers they just looked like hippies painted up. Anyone able to clarifiy if the talked to actual aborigies?

I think the Aboriginals are a little like Native Americans, I think just about everyone has some in them now. I have it from both sides for the family.......and when we go to reunions the contrast is striking. Half the family looks like me, fair complected, blond.....very Arian. The other side is day haired, olive complected, high cheek bones and very NA looking.

What I like about the Aussie yowie is the fact the sceptics can't say its a bear with mange but I do remember reading/hearing that they have a smaller one down there about 4-5 feet that's got canines and looks like a monkey but walks mainly on two legs and has attacked people, maybe they have two different species ? down there. :unsure2:

Matt Moneymaker, and the rest of BFRO appreciate you all watching.

The ratings will surely be good enough for a contract extension, and these frauds can keep getting paid for being frauds.

I am ashamed of you all....... :blush:

Wasted 2 hours of my life last night only because I was curious about Yowies and Australia.


Gary Opit no doubt saw a man stumbling around near the trail, maybe intoxicated who knows.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Me too. Maybe I should start a Finding Bigfoot Anonymous? I can meet any night but Sunday....

My husband isn't in to this stuff at all so I thought I'd treat him to the Yowie episode.
Laughing your butt off after surgery, ain't cool :no:
He made more noises than Bobo!

the world is lucky they didn't hear a koala, otherwise we'd be bombarded with "genuine yowie vocalisations" as well.
For the peoplw who haven't heard what a koala, especially on on heat, sounds like - think psychotic hog from hell and you won't be far wrong.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I think Ranae did a pretty good rendition of it trying to call in a Yowie. It was pretty bad. And I like Ranae.

Yeah, Ranea's not bad really.

She's about the only bright spot on the show really. I have to laugh because once MM tossed out some BS for fact about Bigfoots no one else has ever heard and I swear I saw her laugh.
