It’s been ten long years since legendary party boy Corey Worthington tore up the suburb of Narre Warren with a viral party that ended with him being splashed across every front page in the country. Now, he’s coming back.
News Corp is reporting that the 26-year-old is set to make his TV return on Channel 9 series Australia Ninja Warrior, which sees jacked contestants tackle a ludicrously difficult obstacle course.
Worthington’s workmate apparently let the news slip in a post on Facebook, writing: “Corey Worthington …. He was on Big Brother and in December he will be on Ninja Warrior. good luck mate, have fun, u got this mate.”
Channel 9 aren’t confirming or denying the story at the moment, telling News Corp: “At this stage, Channel 9 won’t be making any comments regarding any participants in season two of Australian Ninja Warrior.”
There’s no word yet on whether he’ll be competing in his infamous yellow sunglasses.
Worthington’s had a busy ten years since he and 500 teenagers terrorised the neighbours in Melbourne: he landed a spot on the 2008 season of Big Brother, scored a job hosting underage parties with Brisbane promoter Tim Sabre, and even released a single — a cover of the Beastie Boys’ ‘A Fight For Your Right (To Party)’. Because of course.
