Tully Smyth: [00:00:00] Hello, what am I going to episode 18 of too much Tali on today's episode, we have a very special and long awaited guest on the show. Anthony drew. Yes, the guy that got me in a lot of hot water back in the day. The guy, I risked it all for my relationship, my friends, my home and Sydney and my public reputation.
I just throw it all away for love, but wasn't worth it. What went wrong? And what has he been up to since we lost? So he's long luscious locks and baby blue eyes on our TV screens. Back in 2013, we recap on our time on big brother, our demise and how we've somehow remained friends, despite everything. Jess, let's jump straight in.
Suggest today's a big day for me for obvious reasons, but it's also a very big day for you. You yourself have admitted to being a big brother fan and in fact, watched our season. Do you wanna tell us a little bit about your own love affair with my ex-boyfriend and her
Jess Lucas: [00:01:02] I'm a bit scared to
Tully Smyth: [00:01:05] today because
Jess Lucas: [00:01:06] ex-boyfriends are always off limits, but it's a different scenario when you were on TV.
I'd already seen him. I already know who you are or knew who you were before this. And I had a crush on him, so. So
Tully Smyth: [00:01:18] he's like what help, like fought up because he was on TV
Jess Lucas: [00:01:20] potentially.
Tully Smyth: [00:01:21] And now we've become friends. I know. Are you see the thing is drew my darling boyfriend drew, he loves this kind of thing.
He loves a bit of attention and he's very well aware that you have a crush. He does listen to the show and there has been more than a couple of times
Jess Lucas: [00:01:35] that I've mentioned it.
Tully Smyth: [00:01:37] Um, and I think he's a little, I think he's just as excited to meet you as you automate him. Okay, great.
Jess Lucas: [00:01:42] I'm glad you mentioned he's baby blue eyes in the intro because.
Tully Smyth: [00:01:45] There's baby blurs. They going to be
Jess Lucas: [00:01:47] fire and real,
Tully Smyth: [00:01:48] they actually had their own Facebook fan page. So, yeah. So when we came out of the house, we were all forced to make our own kind of like official fan page. So we all had our official fan pages, but obviously other fans and people that watch the show credit their own pages.
And there was like, I think it was like Drew's eyes. And I actually think at one point it had more fans than he's official actual Facebook page, but yes, he does have really pretty blue eyes
Jess Lucas: [00:02:11] and he used to have a really nice man bond.
Tully Smyth: [00:02:14] He did, he still has long hair. I mean, I didn't know what to be wearing up or down today.
He did just get a haircut. Um, he needed one, you know, it's, you know, we've been locked down and it was quite scraggly looking. I haven't seen him. Uh, semi-recently um, so it has it a haircut, but I wonder whether it would be up or down. These are the last important questions
Jess Lucas: [00:02:31] opens up just for my old time sake.
Tully Smyth: [00:02:32] I have a top two. I'd be fair it up. Yeah.
Jess Lucas: [00:02:35] Sorry, tell me you nervous. What's the garden.
Tully Smyth: [00:02:37] Ex-boyfriend yeah, I'm really shitting myself. I'm like I'm wearing a silk dress. I don't know why. I, my ears are burning hot. I'm sweating. I haven't eaten. I don't know why, because we know we talk quite regularly and, um, you know, I I've seen him recently and we're on good terms.
And I don't know. I think it's because, and I was saying this before to you of air, we've actually never discussed this. This is like a, this isn't just like an Australian. This is a world exclusive. Wow. Him and I have never discussed our relationship. We've never discussed what happened on the show with us or off the show.
Um, this is the first time we're doing that. We're doing it. Face-to-face also in front of you and it's being recorded for the podcast. Like that, that's a lot.
Jess Lucas: [00:03:22] So knowing that I, um, am pawning for your ex-boyfriend
Tully Smyth: [00:03:25] that actually to me makes me feel a bit better because I feel like you would throw somebody's attention onto you and we can like, maybe like throw you under the bus a bit.
Jess Lucas: [00:03:34] that's funny. Okay. So you once said, and I I've done a bit of writing and researching and YouTube thing
Tully Smyth: [00:03:39] for this show. Okay.
Jess Lucas: [00:03:40] Uh, so you want said, I often said that out of everyone I've dated, drew knows me the best. He knows me down to my core. He seen me at my worst and at my best, he's been to all the deep dark corners of my brain.
I loved me because, and despite of it all, that's pretty rare to find and something I've worked hard to preserve. How does this rate still resonate?
Tully Smyth: [00:04:00] Yeah. I mean, I wish I could say that, you know, I've met amazing people since then, and I'm like, that's yeah, that's still kind of how I feel about him. I just feel like we met in such an odd circumstance in such a, in a, such an alien environment.
And I, we went out, so we met these two little leaders. We both felt like we'd been miscast. That was one of our first conversations. We felt like there was so many big personalities in that house who were like constantly, you know, putting on a show and like creating games and wearing costumes and like, you know, team who ended up winning the show.
He would, he had a fake birthday party and, and we just felt like we couldn't live up to that hype. And we, I remember sitting in a corner of the house as the human eye and being like, Feeling this pressure to like, we will worry, the producers were watching being like, what are these two doing? Like, why do we put them in there?
Jess Lucas: [00:04:48] It really fucked off here.
Tully Smyth: [00:04:50] And that's kind of how we originally bonded because we both kind of felt a little bit too. We were overwhelmed and we were like, are we supposed to be here? Are we doing enough? I think if I'm being completely honest now and he'll agree with me, I think he also felt a little bit too cool for it all.
Like we kind of thought like, Some of the challenges were a bit naff. We had to wear silly costumes and, you know, really put yourself out there and that didn't come naturally to either of us. I think we thought we had like, you know, too cool for school. That's how it kind of bonded. But I mean, during the show, obviously I went through a lot in terms of, you know, having a partner at the time, then the backlash and the aftermath.
And yet we've, we've, he's seen me at my very lowest, um, and also at my very best. And he never. He never wavered. He's loved for me to ever waive, but I never felt like I was going to push him away. Like nothing was too much for him, ironically. Um, speaking of which he's calling me right now. Um, so yeah, I still stand by that.
I haven't yet to find someone who I feel has saved me completely. Seen me wholeheartedly and not only said, yep. I accept you for your flaws and as you are, but I love you for your floors.
Jess Lucas: [00:05:57] Wow. Do you know what watching those YouTube videos the other day, it brought back memories and I'm so excited to see you very together.
Tully Smyth: [00:06:03] yeah, let's, I'm going to add this Frankel and let's, I'm think he's downstairs. Let's bring him
Anthony Drew: [00:06:07] up.
Tully Smyth: [00:06:10] Okay, so I've gone downstairs and I've grabbed him. He's here. Anthony drew himself. Hello, my love he's. Hey, is it Apple down, Jess?
Jess Lucas: [00:06:19] It's down.
Tully Smyth: [00:06:20] Are you disappointed? Really
Jess Lucas: [00:06:21] sad. I wanted them to
Tully Smyth: [00:06:22] put it up. I can put it up.
Jess Lucas: [00:06:25] Maybe halfway through you can Chuck it in the,
Tully Smyth: [00:06:27] just
Anthony Drew: [00:06:27] kidding.
Tully Smyth: [00:06:29] First of all, happy birthday. It was your birthday yesterday. I stupidly planned this. I call you agree to it. Knowing like you and Katie
Anthony Drew: [00:06:40] went to bed at about five,
Tully Smyth: [00:06:42] right? When you look, you look damn good for that. Um, I did bring some little cupcakes for you.
Um, please acknowledge there is a Jalong cat. Sign on the cupcakes, which is actually, uh,
Anthony Drew: [00:06:55] thanks for bringing that up.
Tully Smyth: [00:06:56] You're so sorry. You still burning from their loss. Um, thank you so much for agreeing to be on the show. I know that it did take me a lot of convincing publicly. A couple of years, I feel like I've been dangling this in front of you and like seeing how it sort of fed and you were like, absolutely not.
One of Drew's famous sayings is every man has his price basically implying unless I paid him a gazillion dollars, it would never in a million years
Anthony Drew: [00:07:19] happen.
Tully Smyth: [00:07:21] Oh, Wow, Holy shit. Early in the pace guys, I'm done shot. So he's actually an amazing art mixologist and he's made us some delicious cocktails, which we are enjoying.
Jess Lucas: [00:07:34] And, uh, I think it's gone straight to our heads and, um, unfortunately I had something else to break the ice, but Drew's already done it. So that's great. I'm going to show you anyway. So this is something that our editors have pulled together for the show.
Tully Smyth: [00:07:46] I didn't know anything about this by the way.
Jess Lucas: [00:07:49] Yeah.
Another surprise fatale. I love. Love these times
Tully Smyth: [00:07:52] sweating. What is this? Is this shut up for me or someone else?
Jess Lucas: [00:07:56] A bit of
Tully Smyth: [00:07:57] both. You know what? We'll just
Jess Lucas: [00:07:57] let us
Tully Smyth: [00:07:58] play. Roll the tape.
Go ahead. All 50. Never said it too much. Telly. I think there's only been maybe two where I haven't brought him up in some capacity. It's going to sound like I'm still in love with the guy. It was tough because they didn't really want to hear about jurors Ru. Oh, I saw. Drew actually, when I broke up. So I'm going to, I'm going to shoot Richie.
I'm going to shack here and I'm gonna marry drew, drew, drew. Look, my last official boyfriend was drew. She wants her, which drew drew. And I have actually been speaking about Jess drew, drew, Joe, and I are having an argument. And then like an hour later through just be careful with drew drew. Yeah. That was drew.
Jess Lucas: [00:08:39] jerking, you know, I'm drinking,
Tully Smyth: [00:08:40] but yeah. Guys were joking. Like what? Neither of us are obsessed with you.
Jess Lucas: [00:08:44] I bet if he
Tully Smyth: [00:08:45] made a move, look, if he really called me one night after a couple of drinks and I was, you know, also out, do you need my bar
Jess Lucas: [00:08:56] exclusive? Right? Can you guys.
Tully Smyth: [00:09:03] I have I
Jess Lucas: [00:09:04] broken the ice and you guys frozen now because there's
Tully Smyth: [00:09:07] not many wordings, right? It's gonna be really awkward if I'm not talking to you yet. What the hell kind of blossoming is that I'm looking now, everyone in this bloody room, I'm funny editor.
Jess Lucas: [00:09:21] Jerry. You've been brought up a few times.
Everyone's very familiar with you.
Was that a bit much? Do you feel uncomfortable now?
Tully Smyth: [00:09:31] I feel uncomfortable. I bought his clench, my toes. Like I am I, that is, so me. This is my podcast. I regret it immensely.
Jess Lucas: [00:09:46] I totally speechless.
Tully Smyth: [00:09:47] So
Jess Lucas: [00:09:48] I've got the first question anyway. And what I want to know is what is your name? Is it Anthony or is it drew?
What happened there? What was the story behind that?
Anthony Drew: [00:09:58] When I was younger, I grew up in country Victoria and, um,
Tully Smyth: [00:10:02] I use voices like, like soul train vacations
Jess Lucas: [00:10:06] and those eyes as well in real life, ladies, much
Anthony Drew: [00:10:09] better. Paige got axed
Tully Smyth: [00:10:13] before you got here. I was got it. Did it not have more followers at one point than your actual page?
Anthony Drew: [00:10:18] No, I hadn't been half.
Tully Smyth: [00:10:20] But it
Anthony Drew: [00:10:21] had, it had, you know, tens of thousands of followers and then they turned it into other, I think they turned it into like a
Tully Smyth: [00:10:27] big, that even existed back to your name though.
Anthony Drew: [00:10:30] Um, yeah, it was called or or whatever country, nickname that you can spell. Yeah.
Tully Smyth: [00:10:40] Big do boy, you right.
She's had one drink guys, and she's throwing shockers. She's throwing shockers at a country, boy that wasn't even the right fucking
shock that you not even a rock on she's now, I guess is payback justice. Now she's crying with laughter what I love, I don't make sound. I just cry and go
Jess Lucas: [00:11:08] Yeah,
Tully Smyth: [00:11:09] I'm actually hot.
It's still on. It's not hot. It's
Jess Lucas: [00:11:16] fucking hot right now. I've had a shot
Tully Smyth: [00:11:19] guys mop on Alfre for Jess and Tali. No, sorry. Continue what you were saying.
Anthony Drew: [00:11:25] You got nervous. We're getting serious. Uh, I chose, I chose to put drew in the nickname because.
Tully Smyth: [00:11:37] Collect yourself
select to yourself. Oh my God. There he is. More
Jess Lucas: [00:11:47] familiar. Yeah, that does look a bit at the back of her.
Tully Smyth: [00:11:58] Oh shit. What did I tell you? I said, do not flip my producer
Anthony Drew: [00:12:04] anyway,
Tully Smyth: [00:12:04] so Hey, call drew back where he's from and sale. So why it just
Anthony Drew: [00:12:08] stuck with you? what I was always called. That's what it was always called. Um, and then I had the option of a nickname and I figured that one syllable would be easier. On big brother
Tully Smyth: [00:12:22] and how it's actually a really funny story, how I actually learnt his real name, because I had no idea that his name wasn't drew and then in the big brother house, it just so happened to fall in the election.
And so we had to vote for a new prime minister in the house, which in itself was a really weird, we had these like hyperreal from Kevin and Tony Abbott. Which were again, so bizarre because Kevin Rogers really serious talking about the issues he cares about. And then Tony Abbott had his two
Anthony Drew: [00:12:50] daughters
Tully Smyth: [00:12:52] basically were just like, Hey
Anthony Drew: [00:12:54] guys,
Jess Lucas: [00:12:56] I'm a family man.
Tully Smyth: [00:12:58] Anyway, so we had to do an absentee vote, right? So we're sitting down and we were not supposed to have pens or paper in the house because it's communicating secretly, blah, blah, blah. Although we. You got different ones here. And, um, and then so sitting down side by side and I'm next to drew obviously, cause like I'm stuck to him like white on rice and he fills out the form and um, cause we didn't, it was kind of like a glimpse into real life with these people that we'd sort of just met in his weed situation.
And he starts running his first name. And I'm like,
Anthony Drew: [00:13:29] I don't remember that.
Tully Smyth: [00:13:30] I remember so clearly my mind was blown. You'd never once said your name. Wasn't actually Drury food was
Anthony Drew: [00:13:35] really
Tully Smyth: [00:13:36] never. And I'm literally watching you right out. I'm like, and there was like, who do I even know you? Like you strange human beings.
Yeah. So yeah, everyone, everyone, everyone is family. Everyone calls him joke.
Anthony Drew: [00:13:48] There's one clip of me from that. Election. And it's just me. I think, I think I've got a shirt on and I'd just in the, in the diary room. I was, I was a bit more, I was more simple back then. I was writing over all the parties and they'd just one clip of me going hi, big Bravo.
What's the pirate party. And I just place, it just plays on repeat.
Tully Smyth: [00:14:07] I remember that. But you were just, you knew you were just trying to be funny.
Jess Lucas: [00:14:12] Anyway, Jerry, what have you been up to since big brother? I've stalked your socials. You're pretty quiet. Very quiet. You're not an influence. A lights. Holly, what direction have you taken?
Anthony Drew: [00:14:21] Um, I did, I did a lot after, after it, I tried the influencer thing, but it was a lot of work. Like I'm not giving it. I'm not saying it's a,
Tully Smyth: [00:14:36] he always pays me out for what I do.
Anthony Drew: [00:14:39] It's like, just because somebody takes a lot of work doesn't mean it's, you know, Worth doing.
Tully Smyth: [00:14:43] Yep. Fair enough.
Anthony Drew: [00:14:45] It's quite taxing. Um, couldn't be bothered with that. I should throw my hat in the ring with acting that was, that went,
Tully Smyth: [00:14:51] hang on because you were the minute he was out of that house.
He had agents, um, like talent management. He had shows reached out, like everyone had a piece of him. They were like, you come across so well on camera. I would love to have you on like neighbor's home and away. He had this like top,
Anthony Drew: [00:15:08] you did
Tully Smyth: [00:15:10] like the, one of the best, um, talent management companies in Sydney, in Australia.
Wait chatting. We're like, we love you. We want your sign with us. If you're interested. And drew was like, Oh, okay. Um, and they like immediately sent him to like star Wars auditions and like huge deductions. No, but like, they throw you in the deep end, like they're like, Oh cool. He's one of the biggest film know ever.
How's your American accent. He's like, Oh, I'm from style.
Anthony Drew: [00:15:37] And it was what's the, what's the guy from girls.
Tully Smyth: [00:15:40] I had the biggest crush on Adam driver. He's like my number one, like
Anthony Drew: [00:15:43] celebrity. He just paid me. I was so close. That's so
Jess Lucas: [00:15:45] upsetting. So what role were you going for? What's that
Tully Smyth: [00:15:48] hairy one. What is it?
Are you right
Jess Lucas: [00:15:53] now?
Tully Smyth: [00:15:56] What was Adam driver's cap? What was his. Character. He also went for this like, um, romcom. What was it? The last, Oh, you got to pull her up. Paul Walker. A young Paul Walker in that movie
Anthony Drew: [00:16:09] before he died, I suppose. Wow.
Tully Smyth: [00:16:13] That's a real dark
Jess Lucas: [00:16:14] place
Tully Smyth: [00:16:14] for dogs. I really on. Um, all right. People keep going.
Anthony Drew: [00:16:19] I think that th that didn't go well, I did, I did a six still with my first directing role. One of two was a sex scene.
Jess Lucas: [00:16:25] How awkward, surely that
Anthony Drew: [00:16:27] super strange, because
Tully Smyth: [00:16:29] that went
Jess Lucas: [00:16:29] really
Anthony Drew: [00:16:31] well. They, they were really nice to me and they, I had lunch with the. The other actor, um, yeah, before, and she was really chill.
She was like, I've done heaps of these. It wasn't a porn movie by the way, just a normal, normal movie. Um, pretty much like I just wished me in there. And, um, I said to the guy I can remember at name. I was like, what, what, how do I, am I not. Hit you
Tully Smyth: [00:17:01] with what you did with
Anthony Drew: [00:17:03] me. Yeah. Thanks.
Jess Lucas: [00:17:04] Are you suggesting how to, like, how do I suppress the burner?
Anthony Drew: [00:17:08] No, it was more like her. She was sitting, she was supposed to be sitting up on like
Tully Smyth: [00:17:13] crates. Don't think so. Did you purposely not tell him about this?
Anthony Drew: [00:17:18] Told anyone about this that was after. Let me give you a quick rundown of that guy's
Tully Smyth: [00:17:23] timeline there.
Anthony Drew: [00:17:24] She's sitting on crate, so I'm standing up. So just by.
Tully Smyth: [00:17:28] tell you where like a soccer,
Anthony Drew: [00:17:29] soccer ad or something? It's like, how do I know she, she was wearing underwear, but they had to have my ass out. So cute off. So how am I not going to hit you with my, with my.
Tully Smyth: [00:17:44] He does. He has a really pretty Dick fuck up. Literally I haven't finished the one drink,
Anthony Drew: [00:17:50] so I say, how do I not? And she's like, you're not wearing a modesty patch. I said, what the fuck? Someone will give me one?
Tully Smyth: [00:17:57] Where is it?
Anthony Drew: [00:17:58] Like white cart driven of a Manistee person? Like, Oh fuck
Tully Smyth: [00:18:01] BYO modesty power.
Anthony Drew: [00:18:03] If I threw me in this little tent and gave me this little tan, like the color of this box, Like a little like little coin purse sort of thing.
It was stuff, everything inside of. Oh
Jess Lucas: [00:18:13] my God.
Tully Smyth: [00:18:15] And
Jess Lucas: [00:18:15] I was thinking like a cricket thing, like one of those ones,
Tully Smyth: [00:18:17] like a box box and different angles
Jess Lucas: [00:18:21] that makes it look
Tully Smyth: [00:18:23] like it was like a Jean bag
Anthony Drew: [00:18:24] because my ass was out. So
Tully Smyth: [00:18:26] how do you just, literally, it's just a shock when you're dead
Anthony Drew: [00:18:30] shaft.
Tully Smyth: [00:18:31] And is that when you realized your acting days were over or.
Anthony Drew: [00:18:34] Well, that was just the beginning. And then I had to do this poor scene and it was like, action. And it was just like,
Tully Smyth: [00:18:41] it
Anthony Drew: [00:18:41] was just, no, I didn't, because it was tucked into a bag. She,
Tully Smyth: [00:18:45] she was, I
Anthony Drew: [00:18:47] forget she was, she played, she was in the American skins, which is not
Tully Smyth: [00:18:51] just
Anthony Drew: [00:18:52] the tall. She blocked
Tully Smyth: [00:18:55] this way.
Jess Lucas: [00:18:56] All right.
Take your time at big brother.
Tully Smyth: [00:18:58] Wait, hang on. Hang on. What's he doing now? Cause we only got to like, he's happy if he's done since then. Okay. Sorry. He already has one degrade. So when he gets into the bigger of the house, he already had it. One degree engineering degree.
Anthony Drew: [00:19:11] Yeah, I didn't use it though.
Tully Smyth: [00:19:13] It doesn't matter.
You have it. I'm pumping you up here. Come on, sell yourself
Anthony Drew: [00:19:18] on how I manage a club nightclub in print.
Tully Smyth: [00:19:22] Okay. I'm going to keep it. I'm going to chime in you. You were a model, a very different model for a long
Anthony Drew: [00:19:27] time. We're going to run out of it.
Tully Smyth: [00:19:29] Well, I'm someone who does acting for a bit. Then you went into modeling.
You are a model, you did like a Lee campaign. It was in all the windows in all the magazines and all the big, no, cause that was the hardest for me because you look,
Anthony Drew: [00:19:44] yeah, it took a lot of work though. Miserable on that
Tully Smyth: [00:19:50] grumpy. Okay. And now, since then you've been hospitality.
Anthony Drew: [00:19:54] Now I'm in hospitality. I run a late night.
Not club in imprint, one of the best, arguably the best
Tully Smyth: [00:20:03] hands down.
Anthony Drew: [00:20:04] Um, just doesn't think so. But
Jess Lucas: [00:20:06] guys, obviously blue bar is
Tully Smyth: [00:20:07] better. I like
Jess Lucas: [00:20:09] my gangster up. I'm like to get down and dirty on the dance floor. You can't do that on that disco once a
Tully Smyth: [00:20:14] time dance at one 61, then
Jess Lucas: [00:20:16] pickle.
Tully Smyth: [00:20:17] What about a lap dance full?
It doesn't very well, doesn't it? It does. Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [00:20:21] I remember that
Tully Smyth: [00:20:24] Hottie halls worries some secret bathrooms. It really has something for everybody.
Jess Lucas: [00:20:29] I can't wait to go there knowing you are working there now and looking after me and telly,
Tully Smyth: [00:20:33] he actually hates when I rock up, like you can see his eyeballs roll back.
He's like, Oh, great. Like easel head pays. Cause I'll put it the furthest away booth from me. No I'm allowed in. I'm allowed in one of the only people that are allowed on being on the list. I wasn't gonna say that you said that and now what are you doing? So you just finished your second degree,
Anthony Drew: [00:20:57] but to finish my bachelor's in accounting.
Tully Smyth: [00:20:59] Oh, amazing.
Anthony Drew: [00:21:02] Sounds dry, but no, to make accounting fun,
Tully Smyth: [00:21:06] you didn't believe that when you said that he's always in very regular with numbers and
Anthony Drew: [00:21:10] no one wants to see their accountant, but what if their accountant was like me
Tully Smyth: [00:21:14] that you bring this
Jess Lucas: [00:21:14] up? Because we have a really fucking hot accountant. And so every time we have any accountability.
Tully Smyth: [00:21:19] Yeah, right. So I, yeah, you've always been good numbers and money. I was, I've always been terrible. Um, in fact, after the show drew had to lend me money quite often, I'm like, Hey babe, can you just chat to me on Randalls? Thanks so much
Anthony Drew: [00:21:34] saving, sexy. That's
Tully Smyth: [00:21:35] saving. That is great. Saving is sexy. It's good to have money.
You finished second degree. You'll kind of doing accounting kind of nine to five, and then you doing your hospital stuff. Cause you love that. Right? Like I kind of always thought that you would. Finish your accounting degree, gray and then lay the hospital life behind. But you've really over the years you've created.
I mean, first of all, you start from the bottom and you're at the top. You were like a glassy when you started.
Anthony Drew: [00:21:57] No, they didn't let me do that.
Tully Smyth: [00:22:00] You've worked you out the ranks and you've made a lot of great friends and it is a really fun community, especially in Melbourne.
Anthony Drew: [00:22:06] It did, it's given me a lot of drab and a lot of connections and a big network and that sort of thing.
But yeah, it's fun, but it's, you know, it's, it's taken me where I want to go. So.
Tully Smyth: [00:22:16] That's just me. Not too
Jess Lucas: [00:22:17] great. Busy boy. Yup. Um, so obviously your time in the big brother house with Holly specifically was quite controversial. Um, sorry. I want to get to know about you too. A little bit more. Uh, drew, do you remember what you thought when you first saw Holly?
Anthony Drew: [00:22:35] She was loud and complained and cried.
Jess Lucas: [00:22:37] Oh, wow. So nothing's changed
Anthony Drew: [00:22:41] nothing.
Tully Smyth: [00:22:42] How much is too much?
Anthony Drew: [00:22:43] Way too much.
Tully Smyth: [00:22:47] Cool. That was a good answer. Do you wanna ask me when I remember when I first saw drew? Yeah. Tell us mantic. So drew came in a day or a couple of days later than us. So we were the original housemates, some would say the best. And drew came in with a fake wife, Jade. And they literally met five minutes prior to meeting us in the diary room.
And they were told you guys are a married couple. If you convince the housemates, you're married at the end of the week, you're safe for the first weeks of evictions. If you don't you're up. And the poor things had 3.2 seconds to
Anthony Drew: [00:23:19] yeah. Hash it out, hash out a quick story. Where are we from? Um, yeah. And she butchered it.
She won't see when she went on there. Her profession was actor. Oh, no, I was country boy
Tully Smyth: [00:23:32] worked at Oakley in Melbourne central at the time. Billabong
Anthony Drew: [00:23:36] please.
Tully Smyth: [00:23:37] Sorry,
Anthony Drew: [00:23:38] Shaka.
Yeah. And she, she just wouldn't hold my hand.
Tully Smyth: [00:23:47] You just met you guys. Okay. Also when they auditioned, they both had no idea. They had no idea that they were going to be thought they knew they got through it to the house. They didn't know that was going to be, there's gonna be a twist like that. So. Anyway. So then I appealed from the diary where, and we were all like, Oh, what the hell?
They're holding hands. They're both beautiful. I, before that point, the first night of me entering the house, I looked around and I was like, yep, I'm sweet here. Like, everyone's beautiful. Everyone's great. But I was like, there's no one here. That's going to tempt me. And then in walks, he's like six foot, two tall, darker, handsome, bright blue eyes kid.
And I, I honestly hand on heart. Tell us your song on you were trouble had just come out before we went to the house and that shit started playing in my head and I was like, I'm fucked here. Okay. I'm really fucked. But he was married. So I was like, this is great. Okay. So you're super hot, but you see what he's why.
So of course, and I, yeah, and I remember, but I remember seeing him in that song, literally, like the chorus started playing in my head and I'm like, Houston, we have a problem because the other, at that point as
Jess Lucas: [00:24:55] well, obviously you were in a really it lesbian relationship with Talia. I was, did that cross your mind at that point?
Tully Smyth: [00:25:01] Obviously it did, but again, I thought I was, I had this like safety net of like this wife that was literally with him in the experience. So I thought I could just, you know, just because you're on a diet, doesn't mean you can't look at the menu. Right. We will also follow us on the show. And I know there are a lot of you listening because my inbox blew up last night with questions for jury, but we will just separated by a perspect wall.
So if you remember that there was the haves and haves, not basically. And drew was lucky enough to be blessed with the haves. And I was still in the house in
Anthony Drew: [00:25:30] my time on the have not side,
Tully Smyth: [00:25:33] I was like, okay, cool. He's married. And there's a perspex wall, physically separating. Huh? I did. How, if you want remedies, he has a shocking memory by the way.
And I've got a really good memory. And so I can always kind of convince him and Gaslight even into like leaving my version of events. Um, I had a section about it on the show, like the first night after meeting him and I felt so guilty about that. But I was like, I'm going to just kind of, I'm going to tell Jade, cause like
Anthony Drew: [00:25:59] you didn't.
Tully Smyth: [00:26:00] I did, because if I tell her like, it's, it's a funny joke. Right? So I also, so I was like, Hey Jay, this is through the fucking wall. I'm like, Hey Jay, when you're finished in the pool that I can't access. Could you come and talk to me at the fence?
Anthony Drew: [00:26:13] And your voice doesn't carry. So,
Tully Smyth: [00:26:17] um, I need a drink. Um, um, anyway, I was like Jade, so funny, like crazy, cause I'm like gay and stuff, but, um,
Jess Lucas: [00:26:25] and you're married
Tully Smyth: [00:26:26] and you're married to the guy, but, um, I had this weed like sexy about it last night, which is just like soy because like ill boys gross.
And she was like, Oh my God, really? That's funny. Hi, drew, come over here. Tell drew. And I was like, No, no, no. I was like, no, no, no, no, no, no. It's just telling you like guilt to go, like blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. She's like, no, not telling him like tell the story. I told you. I was like, Oh, I just had a really weird dream.
Right? It's not like, that was the first time I saw you came like in that way.
Anthony Drew: [00:26:54] You
Tully Smyth: [00:26:54] are
Anthony Drew: [00:26:54] probably one of those
Tully Smyth: [00:26:56] just up a shock, the fuck up. I'm
Jess Lucas: [00:26:59] like, yes, I can't wait this Mary Sans,
Tully Smyth: [00:27:01] baby. Fuck you, Jane. Okay. So considering your loss outside, maybe a little bit concerned for this next question, but when did you realize that you had feelings for me?
It obviously wasn't instantaneous.
Anthony Drew: [00:27:12] No, it wasn't. It was. I guess because we chatted through that fence quite a long, uh, it wouldn't be, it would have been after I took the challenge seriously with Jade,
Tully Smyth: [00:27:23] he did not quit. Are you very competitive?
Anthony Drew: [00:27:26] What was I for eviction? If I didn't win
Tully Smyth: [00:27:28] the first week too, it's a scary time to be up.
Anthony Drew: [00:27:30] It was pretty scary. And I wouldn't say gone through a lot. Yeah, that was it's very pink. Uh, yeah, it would have been after, after the challenge, I suppose when we just, it was a daily check-in for me,
Tully Smyth: [00:27:41] with me. Yeah. We used to like meet up at the fence and like, Hey, how'd you like, I really like, and wait my turn.
I also have it be known that I was one of the first people to click onto there being fake.
Jess Lucas: [00:27:53] Right. That doesn't surprise me with you.
Tully Smyth: [00:27:55] Only not because of him or because of her, because her, her, her wedding ring was novelty and would just fall off her finger. And I was like, there's something, not
Anthony Drew: [00:28:05] production values
Tully Smyth: [00:28:06] had never heard her wedding, her wedding finger, her wedding ring would like be that big.
And I was like, there's something.
Anthony Drew: [00:28:11] Oh
Tully Smyth: [00:28:14] yeah. Yeah. So we called them out on it. So it was after that,
Anthony Drew: [00:28:19] you'd also sit in the gym and just watch ed workout and the.
Jess Lucas: [00:28:24] Yeah. Well, I have to admit, I was watching some YouTube videos to get some content for the show and watching YouTube interact while you were still with Jay.
And I was like, I can see it now. Yeah. And then also, yeah, you and JT really didn't get
Tully Smyth: [00:28:39] no.
Jess Lucas: [00:28:40] Who was eviction that first night that you guys, because what happened was, this is a YouTube video I watch, um, You will have to go into the diary room. Is that right? And say that they were together or they weren't.
We had to all
Tully Smyth: [00:28:51] unanimously agree. We had to, it was wonderful all for one. And so there were a few, lots that were still unsure and if we were wrong, we will all up. And they were both to a say, so it was a massive risk fast. And so we're in there. You can see us like you were one of the first cigar
Jess Lucas: [00:29:05] I'm.
Tully Smyth: [00:29:07] I mean, girls got to eight
Anthony Drew: [00:29:08] was us two and the rest, wasn't it like,
Tully Smyth: [00:29:10] no, it was either YouTube
Anthony Drew: [00:29:12] or the whole house and just asked to up for eviction.
Cause otherwise I would have gone home.
Tully Smyth: [00:29:17] That was the, that was the yes. No, because we will right. You a real couple. So we were right and you were up. Yeah, exactly. But I know where the rest came from that week
Anthony Drew: [00:29:26] sharing with that week.
Tully Smyth: [00:29:29] So you
Jess Lucas: [00:29:29] weren't out for eviction with anyone
Anthony Drew: [00:29:30] else,
Jess Lucas: [00:29:32] you and
Tully Smyth: [00:29:32] Jay there's no one else.
Those are the half halfway house. So it was in that halfway house. They were up for eviction because they'd lost that their own little mini challenge. They were automatically added to that halfway house. So it was that whole halfway house.
Jess Lucas: [00:29:44] And do you remember the, the wedding video?
Anthony Drew: [00:29:46] I'm like,
Tully Smyth: [00:29:48] Oh yes.
Jess Lucas: [00:29:48] Take wedding
Tully Smyth: [00:29:49] video where you tell us that it's not real because I know more about the bloody show.
Neither of us have watched it back.
Anthony Drew: [00:29:58] No, I have no idea
Tully Smyth: [00:29:59] what
Jess Lucas: [00:30:00] it was. Um, it was just this big montage of like fake videos of fake weddings. Yeah, I think, I don't know if you guys come to the Anaconda was skipping through.
Tully Smyth: [00:30:10] Maybe we can watch it off the top of them. Not me when we that's fine.
Jess Lucas: [00:30:13] Cause he said that they were married and then they were like, he's his wedding
Tully Smyth: [00:30:16] video?
He's there. Were you wearing it? You're wearing your plaid, a funner, the green one with the yellow. I remember what he was wearing that day. That's weird. Isn't it? Yeah.
Jess Lucas: [00:30:24] And then yeah. Yeah. Jade said something like, I'm going to go sit over here now. And you're like, all right.
Tully Smyth: [00:30:30] Wow. I think I literally jumped him when I found out he wasn't and then I was like, now I'm going really in trouble.
Jess Lucas: [00:30:36] So when did you realize you had feelings for Tali? Was it at the gate is locked in,
Tully Smyth: [00:30:43] so elaborative and like complimentary. I love it. Good question.
Jess Lucas: [00:30:48] Um, okay. So, uh, tele being in a lesbian relationship outside of the house in the house, um, you knew that she was in a relationship, is that right? Yeah. And. Did you ever discuss it?
Anthony Drew: [00:30:59] No, not, not in depth way. We taught George about our lives a lot.
Like, so we had to do pretty much all day was talk. So every detail of our lives we'd tell each other. So yeah, I'd, I'd heard all that tell his life, but you didn't really get the chance to talk
Tully Smyth: [00:31:18] Jay.
Anthony Drew: [00:31:18] Exactly. Just because we knew that everything we said, whether we're in the pool, there was cameras like around the edge of the pool there's cameras in the.
In the bed heads, there was even if you didn't have one around your neck, you were always on, on Mike. So you knew you could never say something without the potential of it going out to the, to the world, I suppose say that was, we talked about it, but we didn't talk about it.
Tully Smyth: [00:31:41] It was, that was probably the hardest thing, because we would try and like almost talking to code, like we would talk, we would pussy foot around the issue and actually ask the question.
We would like give sort of like, um, you know, what would you do kind of scenarios to try and gauge how they react with the actual, it was so tough. There were like, there were spots that were easier to talk. Um, showers, middle of the showers we would kind of eat or are you only say two or three words?
Cause you weren't, you were confident in your privacy. You'd say like, Yeah. And that was
Anthony Drew: [00:32:24] someone else's conversation in the house.
Tully Smyth: [00:32:25] Um, the pool. So the middle of the pool. So the pool was kinda like a jelly bean shape. And were, as you said, there were cameras hanging. You could find spots in the pool, maybe. Um, we also had once a day, we had a battery change. So for a split second, your batteries are out and you weren't miked.
We'd never used that time efficiently. Other people did stop when you explained the story. I want to know in saying that though drew and I actually came up with our own way of communicating, which we used. So ineffectively,
Anthony Drew: [00:32:57] very cumbersome as well.
Tully Smyth: [00:33:00] So no one knows is again, like we've never discussed our relationship.
We've never discussed the brother together ever with anyone. Um, we've been pretty deal. So you guys are getting all the gusts. So we went, we shared a bed. We somehow managed to wrangle one of his only two double beds. And we managed very early on Wrangler. I don't know how
Anthony Drew: [00:33:20] I think production would have flipped after that anyway.
Tully Smyth: [00:33:23] So we would write, you know, like he did in primary school, we would write on each other with our fingers, you know, used to like, can you sit behind your friend in school and you'd draw a picture, say, what did I just draw? But I just write. So we would do that under the cupboards. So we would write. Bunches legs or backs or torso.
We would spell words out letter by letter. Wow. But rather than being like, Hey, like tomorrow's nominations, let's gang up secretly. Cause no one can say that uncovers. Cause if we whispered they can hear everything. We also, they allowed the other housemates to sleep with their microphones. Off, but they would not ever let us do that.
The minute we try to hit them off by telling them drew, but your Mike's back on, because we would like to fucking, it was the drawing show. So we would spell words out. Right. But rather than being like, okay, we knew that tomorrow was an eviction, so let's both go Rohan, Rohan, three points. McKayla too, rather than gaining up and using our points as a collective, we just write like with sex each other, we'd be like, we'd be like, I wish we could fuck.
Right. Like, what are we doing with our time? I'd be like, I want to bang you. Like,
Jess Lucas: [00:34:31] since you brought it up, did anything ever happen in the big brother
Anthony Drew: [00:34:34] house?
Jess Lucas: [00:34:36] Yeah. Oh, well, okay. If there's other stories about it.
Tully Smyth: [00:34:40] Okay. You can answer it. Go on. We didn't have sex. No, we don't have sex in the house once. And for all guys,
Anthony Drew: [00:34:48] it's out there.
Tully Smyth: [00:34:50] Holy shit. Oh my God. Did you forget what someone
Jess Lucas: [00:34:53] else. Solar.
Tully Smyth: [00:34:57] Okay. You are selling. This is my podcast. The boys had some weed packed very early on to not masturbate until when,
Jess Lucas: [00:35:09] when did you guys, why,
Tully Smyth: [00:35:10] why as a collective, they all decided, Hey, let's see how long we can go for. And so all the boys were in school.
And a lot of the boys had girlfriends and we used to regular sex.
Anthony Drew: [00:35:18] Wait, wait a mask with, with the challenge. Just that, that we're petrified of actually doing it on camera because when Matt came back, one of the other guys was in the house, came back and said he did
Tully Smyth: [00:35:30] the best Calgary up the toilet.
Anthony Drew: [00:35:31] Yeah.
Tully Smyth: [00:35:32] With a robot.
Anthony Drew: [00:35:33] And the worst, like the toilets were like, like just like a cubicle. And then this, this camera over this one behind this up black glass. So no matter where you were. You'll be on. And when you, when, when I, when I got evicted, they gave me a tour of the, it looked like NASA.
Tully Smyth: [00:35:52] Oh, that'd be
Anthony Drew: [00:35:54] great.
Yeah. With all the screens and whatever's happening is on the big room. So if you get up at three o'clock to go feed the chucks, then you're going to be the only screen. That's that there's any action, just
Tully Smyth: [00:36:08] so bored. So tired, like overworked, like everyone.
Jess Lucas: [00:36:14] Yeah. Okay. I'm going to Siri for you. I feel like the best spot in the entire house would have been the pool.
Anthony Drew: [00:36:19] What, what are you just going to be? They're still below five minutes and all of a sudden you start to Twitch
while you're holding you a snake.
Jess Lucas: [00:36:37] I mean, I feel like he could have done that. Um, it's inconvenient for the other housemates.
Tully Smyth: [00:36:42] It's not it's like,
Jess Lucas: [00:36:46] what does he see for him? Come from?
Tully Smyth: [00:36:49] Holy shit. She has a car you've had enough to drink. I think, I think even a whole glass is enough for you. Drew is like on his, huh?
Anthony Drew: [00:36:59] Just imagining like sin killed a by when the, in those pockets where the water just doesn't move.
And it's just that, that stagnant.
Tully Smyth: [00:37:10] So in answer to your question though, we didn't have sex in the house. Um, first and foremost, first and foremost. We were Mike at all times. And as drew said, even if we took our microphones off, we still wouldn't allow us to do there were mice in our bed head. We could hear the cameraman like muffled laughter behind us.
We had the camera on the roof, constantly pointed at our bed. I also, you know, this sounds like a moot point, but I was aware that I had a partner, but dad was watching, we had team. I could touch him if I reached my arm out. Um, so yeah, we just, we just set up really like talking about Pokemon, which had annoyed everyone else.
A lot. We fought around, I went with him, we went for
Anthony Drew: [00:37:51] one round.
Jess Lucas: [00:37:54] So was there a point in the house then that Drolly was official? Cause it was official on our end.
Tully Smyth: [00:38:00] We didn't,
Anthony Drew: [00:38:01] I suppose when you came back into the house in the freeze challenge, that was,
Tully Smyth: [00:38:08] let's talk about that for a minute because that people come up to me and say that that was like, A life-changing moment in Shelley and television.
So for those that aren't aware, I was evicted Pam and chili am I say? And, um,
Anthony Drew: [00:38:21] my ratings actually went back up after you left.
Tully Smyth: [00:38:25] That is his joking. He doesn't even know that you don't know
Anthony Drew: [00:38:28] that the numbers don't lie.
Tully Smyth: [00:38:30] He's an, he's an accountant anyway. So, um, I was evicted devastated, obviously mainly has had to face the music and probably about, was it a week, two weeks.
Wasn't very long. Two a week, two weeks. I got a call from Apple juice that Alex man, for Dockers, shout out to Alex. Um, he is the best he called me and he's like, look, I've got a proposition employee. And I was like, okay, shoot. Like, what's up. Keep him on an already been wheeled back at once for an ass Holly segment because I was evicted.
They were worried about my mental state. Didn't ask me any questions about drew. Once they knew that I was caught up in what was happening at side, that what we back on again, to answer Twitter questions about him. This is my third hurrah with the show. Writing's golden egg over here whilst you're just living your life anyway.
They're like, Hey look, we have an idea. We're going to do a free challenge with the hazmat. And I was like, Oh, I'm fan of the show. I've seen it before. I was like, damn it. It's so much fun. Fuck. I missed out. You guys, do you want to get back into the house? And I was like, yes. I said, yeah. I was like, yeah.
Because you haven't even thought me doing it. I don't care if I can see drew, then I'm in, like, if I can see him, we can touch him. Then I'm in. He's like, it's going to be, you know, you're going to have to go in there, fly back up here. Did you win? Like how can I have pause? Can I get up there? Um, so I got my hair and makeup done.
But a cute dress. Um, they had to get him a cent from the group because he was hanging out with Jade and I had to had to separate from it because they asked him to do something they're like, uh, Hey, um, Mississippi brother can drew, can you go check the fridge to see if it's running? And he's made walk to this special fringe that he happens in another part of the challenge.
And then I just come on in. And I like say hi to everybody. I take my time. I say hi to my friends. Um, and yeah, and then I tell them that, um, I'm single. So you'll sign that. That was the point when you and I were official,
Anthony Drew: [00:40:19] I guess that's what Jess asked for. At what point did it
Tully Smyth: [00:40:21] become official?
Anthony Drew: [00:40:23] Cause I didn't, it was always, I was always aware of the fact that
Tully Smyth: [00:40:25] I had a partner.
Anthony Drew: [00:40:26] What was going on the outside? Yeah.
Jess Lucas: [00:40:28] What was it like for you? Let her have her kissing you at that time we left. Oh, then we're in here
Anthony Drew: [00:40:35] as I should really dumb cause was that it was, it was a weird week. The week that that happened was the house was on rations, I think for the third week in a row. And I, to, to cause unrest, the producers had made me housemate of the week for doing absolutely nothing.
And then they put it there.
It's at the hotel somewhere. The big picture of my face,
Tully Smyth: [00:40:59] we left that
Anthony Drew: [00:41:03] just a headshot of me. Like my shit.
Tully Smyth: [00:41:08] Yeah. So because
Anthony Drew: [00:41:10] they've given me this whole freezer on the, I can use and there was a padlock on it and a key
Tully Smyth: [00:41:14] and pass
Anthony Drew: [00:41:15] out of the week to cause like to try and turn people against me a little bit just, and just to cause just to get the, get the wheels, turning the challenge, I wait was the phrase chance if you filed that with their own Russians again for the next week.
So when it happened tele Mustang, I was like so excited to take Tali, but everyone's really hungry. So excuse me. I couldn't, I couldn't move my lips. So you did all the work and I was like, while you're kissing me,
Jess Lucas: [00:41:42] so you're a little bit
Tully Smyth: [00:41:42] dehydrated, maybe wait, hang on. This is the first I'm hearing.
Anthony Drew: [00:41:48] Go back
Tully Smyth: [00:41:48] and watch it all.
You weren't allowed to move, but I knew you weren't going to move you weren't allowed to because if he moved, then the whole challenge lost again. Yeah. I mean,
Jess Lucas: [00:41:58] yeah, definitely smiled. I watched
Tully Smyth: [00:42:01] his heart, he got a half-smile smile smirk. My look, I won't lie. I, I, there was a part of me that was really hope that you'd like, you'd loved me enough that you would like break free and like, just give me a big hug.
But I also understood that you, cause you're a people pleaser as well, man, and people. Stop it delicate though. Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [00:42:19] You ran nice black dress,
Tully Smyth: [00:42:22] the chat. Cause I got to go after that and go and watch his reaction, which is also amazing. So they hired me out and I got to run background to the control room and then big brother called drew in for chat.
But I was feeding him the questions, you know, this, I
Anthony Drew: [00:42:36] didn't even know if he never told me.
Tully Smyth: [00:42:37] Yeah. And so I made, I made big brother asked her if he loved me.
Anthony Drew: [00:42:41] That's the something in there. That's just like entrapment.
Jess Lucas: [00:42:47] That's exactly what it
Tully Smyth: [00:42:48] is.
Anthony Drew: [00:42:52] I had, I feel
Tully Smyth: [00:42:53] Tojo single gave you a kiss. What'd you? How'd you feel
Anthony Drew: [00:42:57] overwhelmed.
Tully Smyth: [00:42:58] Were you excited? Were you happy? Really? Like, fuck, I'm going to get the fuck out there and banger.
Anthony Drew: [00:43:04] No, I want to win so I could leave with money.
Tully Smyth: [00:43:06] Okay.
Jess Lucas: [00:43:07] That's so good answer. Cause you're still involved. You guys were just eating good.
Anthony Drew: [00:43:11] I'm not cheap to run now. I'm not cheap to run all those out there.
Jess Lucas: [00:43:15] Okay. So, uh, you both in a relationship in the house, um, there was a lot of time spent together. Just the two of you. Um, Sates gym, wherever pool, mostly. Um,
okay. Um, and true. This might be a little bit sensitive, but you were a little bit emotional in the house. Do you feel like tele brought that out in you.
Anthony Drew: [00:43:40] Um, yes and no, I'm an emotional person at times I can be a hothead. Uh what's that face for
Tully Smyth: [00:43:52] of the year. I've often said the truth is the moodiest girl I ever dated.
Anthony Drew: [00:43:56] Dude,
Tully Smyth: [00:43:57] he's moody.
Anthony Drew: [00:43:59] Yeah, I do.
Tully Smyth: [00:44:01] But you struggled, like we both struggled early on with. Feeling like maybe you didn't belong there.
Anthony Drew: [00:44:07] Yeah. I mean, it was as much as it was a comfortable experience, like, you know, every so often you'd go through moments of big, massive highs followed by massive lows. So yeah, that, um, then they don't, and they're definitely not.
Not because they're cruel. I just did it because it's good TV. They've played, played the purchasers, played with their emotions and tweak things, whether it was food or who was doing a certain challenge, putting you with someone, they just, they could, they've all got socked to grace. They can manipulate you and turn those emotions on and off.
Jess Lucas: [00:44:45] Yeah.
Tully Smyth: [00:44:46] Yeah, it was, yeah, it was hard because we weren't able to be honest, like we were so conscious. I think, I mean, I always felt that like we weren't aware of what was being showed. Right. It's people ask me, like, why don't you just open it, honest with your relationship in the house. We weren't fully aware.
And it seems so silly, but like looking back the, the, the. The degree of detail does deserve that, like that they managed to get up the two of us.
Anthony Drew: [00:45:08] Oh yeah. That's fucked.
Tully Smyth: [00:45:10] What do you mean?
Anthony Drew: [00:45:11] Just how they have these cameras on swivels and it was dead quiet. You could, you could hear, hear them like a little drawing, like, Ooh, just like falling in.
You mess around with them. You walk one in the hallway and then won't back. And walk back and just hear it watching and then you'd flip them off and then
Tully Smyth: [00:45:31] it's not like me at all. So we just didn't know, like, it sounds maybe naive, but like you just, you see a camera and you think, okay, cool. That's a camera, but you don't understand like the detail I can get.
And there were a few moments in the house where. We would give in glimpses of that because they gave us like, like, uh, we had the, the men. And are you
Anthony Drew: [00:45:50] off saying that recently? It's horrible.
Tully Smyth: [00:45:52] So we think we've got a few like hype reels and they'd use footage up from us. And it was in those times where I was like, Oh shit.
Like if they got that, then they got, if they got this, then they got that. And I think that, um, it was really frustrating to be able to have honest conversations with each other about what was happening. So frustrating and that often bubbled up and blew up and became about other things. So, you know, when people are like, Oh, you know, you injured, we're always arguing.
Or you're always angry with drew. It's like, we were so frustrated, they'll be able to have a conversation that like, we couldn't talk about the two of us and the fact that, you know, we were falling in love or I had a wife in ship or whatever. So instead I'd be like, Why didn't you make, you put Jack this morning and it looks like I'm fucking crazy, but really we, that is like the scapegoat for the actual issues that we can not talk about because we're on a fucking reality TV show we're filmed 24 seven.
That makes sense.
Jess Lucas: [00:46:47] How'd you feel when telly left?
Anthony Drew: [00:46:49] I was really upset. Do you remember that? None.
Tully Smyth: [00:46:53] Check it,
Anthony Drew: [00:46:54] I think I knew it was coming
Tully Smyth: [00:46:55] as well.
Anthony Drew: [00:46:57] Yeah, you were toast. Okay.
Tully Smyth: [00:47:02] How'd you feel the night I left you sad?
Anthony Drew: [00:47:04] Yeah. I already want to deed though. Yeah, I remember. I was, I was gutted though,
Tully Smyth: [00:47:08] when you go. Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [00:47:11] Um, yeah, because you want my best friend in there. Um,
Tully Smyth: [00:47:15] no, I was friend too,
Anthony Drew: [00:47:16] but then Tim came back to me. So that was around.
Jess Lucas: [00:47:19] I think you'd seen actually that I've watched of you and Tim and the ice cream part.
Tully Smyth: [00:47:25] You remember that with me and him or human team, UNC would always be like, get rid of your girlfriend Mae you suck now she's the worst.
Get rid of, uh,
Jess Lucas: [00:47:35] no, it was over your team. It was really cute. Cause you were talking about, um, how you're feeling about. At being a lesbian and then whether you would grow for guys, um, eventually, and that type of thing. So it's like everything that you've already spoken to us about now. You kind of felt that way back then as well.
Tully Smyth: [00:47:50] It's also really ironic considering that team also came out and, you know, he had his own struggles and confusions with his sexuality and he's actually apologized to me since being like, I, you know, I should have been more empathetic, more understanding or patient he's like, I had no idea what you were, you know, shoveling with in that house.
And now I get it and I feel so bad for the way I treated you. So that was nice. So this is your question, but I'm taking over perfect. So what happened after you were finally a victim of the house? Did we both discuss our relationship and all we a couple shed away? Like how did that all come about? So you were evicted.
I was there with your two best friends from Bali, Libyans love them. And your parents sat a bit beforehand. Um, and you were evicted. What happened after that?
Anthony Drew: [00:48:39] I got evicted and put through, I got put through a five minutes psych evaluation, where I was deemed IO. Okay. So my parents
Tully Smyth: [00:48:47] had some media obligations and we went back to Drew's hotel room, me, Libby, Sam, his parents.
We had a few drinks, um, and then his parents left and then. You mean living in Sam kind of partied a little bit.
Anthony Drew: [00:48:59] Yeah. We stayed up in the hotel room. So we had, I think we became a couple at night.
Tully Smyth: [00:49:05] We did. I'll tell you the story if you don't remember us. So
Jess Lucas: [00:49:09] let's just this, I feel like there's a lot of anticipation here for me.
Because I want to know about your first time.
Tully Smyth: [00:49:16] Yeah. I'll go into that. So it was really odd this, again, maybe it doesn't sound, maybe it's not relatable, but so his parents were there and we will look like, you know, having a few drinks, being respectable, being, you know, lovely people. I've met his parents before.
Um, and then they left and then it was mainly his two best mates and they live in Bali at the time. So he hadn't seen them, you know, it was such a beautiful reunion. Um, and then they left and I remember so much. Oh, it's so weird. I remember walking them out. I opened the door saying goodbye to them, getting them kisses and then shutting the door and turning around and looking at drew and realizing that Holy fuck, we're alone.
We'd never been alone before it was such a weed. I was like, wait. Oh, so now it's just you and me just, you're just you're me forever now. Like what? It felt so weird. I mean, for months afterwards, I would have a shower and go to grab my imaginary microphone. Like that kind of stuff. It's an institution and it takes a while to like wash that off.
You. But I turned to him and I was like, and it was all, it was almost awkward. We went awkward at all with living in Sammy's parents at the minute we were allowing like,
Anthony Drew: [00:50:22] Everything. It was just asked to everything you said was just for that person.
Tully Smyth: [00:50:26] Yeah. Yeah. There's a lot more pressure on it. It felt more real, the fun.
And then like the cameras were all gone. Like
Anthony Drew: [00:50:34] that's what the water subsides so long, he'd be in a room in a hotel room and you wouldn't believe
Tully Smyth: [00:50:41] just year,
Anthony Drew: [00:50:42] but yeah, you keep thinking that the cameras were still on.
Tully Smyth: [00:50:45] I remember, I remember watching TV. Um, so basically also before he was evicted, every time he was up for eviction, I was flown up to the gold coast in case he was to leave, which was sorry, texting on, on me in many ways.
But I have a thing in hotel room and the TV was too quiet. I could hear it. I said, big brother. I can't hear it. I was like, fuck, am I talking too loud? Because I'm used to him doing every, like we were like, can I have a shower? Your brother. Like we did have sex that night we did. And you know what? It was a really beautiful three seconds.
Anthony Drew: [00:51:19] I'm not already out of whack in the bathroom
Tully Smyth: [00:51:20] before
Jess Lucas: [00:51:22] had you actually wait, wait, you didn't tell us, did you actually hold off
Anthony Drew: [00:51:25] 101 dies.
Tully Smyth: [00:51:27] Holy shit. He also asked me to be his girlfriend that night, and I'm going to re like refresh your memory, but then let you tell the story. Cause it was all your idea and it was so sweet and so romantic the rocks,
Anthony Drew: [00:51:39] the rocks.
Tully Smyth: [00:51:40] Yeah. And that's how you asked me where you go friend. Oh. So tell that story. Cause it's, I'm not paying you a credit for that he was so cute and so romantic and I was away. I was like,
Anthony Drew: [00:51:51] Tim, Tim had this in terms of evil genius. Um, But to determine, uh, how he would vote each week. He had gone to the garden around the edge of the, of the house.
There was all these rocks in the garden and he picked a rock for, I think what 21, 22
Tully Smyth: [00:52:10] housemates. Oh, no, I was, I must have still been there even maybe eight 22 housemates. Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [00:52:15] Rock for each of them. And he kept them hidden in the garden and he remembered which rock was it? Like, that'd be a rock with a certain.
You know, quality and he was signed. That is he's crazy. So he would lay the rocks down kind of like a strategy and try and predict how the people would vote. So he'd know where to place his votes to be most effective, rather than if you know, Telly's, Rock's already got nine votes assigned to it. There's no point putting his three onto it.
Cause it's 12. That'd be a washout. Yeah. She's already out, but if there's someone might be on the line, So I might have to, and he wants to get me over the line, push three on me.
Tully Smyth: [00:52:57] Exactly. Like there's kind of, I wasn't, I don't know about you, but I was never thinking like that. I was like, Oh, you know, he's been doing this week, Jade,
Anthony Drew: [00:53:05] do the dishes,
Tully Smyth: [00:53:06] you know what Kayla, but the loss of the Vegemite and that pissed me off.
Anthony Drew: [00:53:10] Um, so I had all these rocks and it was he's little he's little like he's precious. I guess it was like that
Tully Smyth: [00:53:17] he was very precious about it. And then once we were evicted, he put a black spot in it.
Anthony Drew: [00:53:21] Yes.
Tully Smyth: [00:53:22] Did you do that without a pen?
Anthony Drew: [00:53:23] Probably blood. My God. Um, but he gave me my rock. I think when I was the only one that he did that too, but it's, it did show me where he keeps the rocks and I I'd stolen tally's rock from his, from his, from the graveyard, I suppose, with all the rocks, with the, with the black dots
Tully Smyth: [00:53:40] and said, what'd you do?
Anthony Drew: [00:53:41] I got the rocks put in a frame,
Tully Smyth: [00:53:44] but that night. If you find that out, I will
Anthony Drew: [00:53:49] print it out.
Tully Smyth: [00:53:50] So that night he, we were in bed. W we had 175 drinks age. He was exhausted as well. It's songs are watching that night. And he was like, I think I'm about to go to sleep. He was like, Hey, wait, wait, wait. He like went to his back, bringing your suitcase.
I'm like, get through all his stuff. And he got his rocking my rock and he was like, will you be my girlfriend? Cause I was like, I thought you'd never ask. I just cried that it was so, so sweet. He was like, he's like, I stole Tim's rock.
Jess Lucas: [00:54:17] You know, that's what penguins through. Right.
Anthony Drew: [00:54:18] It's. Thank you. It's still on your
Tully Smyth: [00:54:21] Instagram.
It is. And then after the fact, he, we actually wrote an event and this fan gave us another rock with a love heart paints on it. So then drew went and got his rock, the love heart rock, and then my rock brain. Come on. I'll you? What? I'll put it up on the add to my tele Instagram. You guys can see it though.
And I, I hope you still have it because it was up until recently that you've had it war dry when no one could see it, but he's still equally throw that out with you.
Anthony Drew: [00:54:50] You
Tully Smyth: [00:54:50] give it to him. It gives me if we throw it out with me, would you offer it to me? Return
Anthony Drew: [00:54:54] to my parents' house.
Jess Lucas: [00:54:56] So you guys are obviously great mates now today.
Great. Um, and you were together for about a year after the show is all right on and off on and off. Yeah. What happened there
Anthony Drew: [00:55:09] is that to me,
Tully Smyth: [00:55:10] I'm not saying there's your answer. Maybe you're interviewing other special guests.
Anthony Drew: [00:55:15] What did happen there?
Tully Smyth: [00:55:16] No one knows. I've never said I figured out that. What happened there?
Anthony Drew: [00:55:20] I don't remember.
Tully Smyth: [00:55:21] Well, first of all, I moved to Melbourne. I
Anthony Drew: [00:55:24] was going to say distance. So it's just blowing up. Isn't it?
Tully Smyth: [00:55:27] Where it was. It was a struggle. I like, I'll be honest. We were both mentally struggling. It is such a weird thing to go through. And every single person in that house, even Tim who won the show, Um, was struggling mentally.
It's a lot. Um, it was a lot to take on. It was a massive life change. Um, you know, you suddenly had anxiety that you'd never had before. Really. Like he'd be at a club and you'd be surrounded by people and you'd be like, I can't like give me that hell out of here. Just sucked a lot.
Anthony Drew: [00:55:54] Couldn't be, couldn't get a job.
Tully Smyth: [00:55:56] We could have chapel straight was impossible. We'd be stopped for photos. And we followed people. Talk about, you could keep people taking a name and your ears the whole time.
Anthony Drew: [00:56:04] If someone yells at some just yells at drew down the street or wherever in a club, like does it, no, there's a way that someone will sign it.
If they don't actually know you. As much as
Tully Smyth: [00:56:16] it's like a really high,
Anthony Drew: [00:56:18] no, that I don't know how to use that word. Like normally
Tully Smyth: [00:56:22] people call me and I'm like, no one actually knows me, calls me Tang.
Anthony Drew: [00:56:25] I just like getting used to, so, you know, at the start, like every time we turn around and then it's on,
Tully Smyth: [00:56:34] it was a struggle.
It was a lot, it was a lot to deal with. Um, We had, you know, sudden fame who were quiet, that we weren't prepared for, that no one gives you
Anthony Drew: [00:56:43] fine with no money though.
Tully Smyth: [00:56:45] That sucked. They don't give you any media training that it give you any help or support. Then we had the additional problems of me having to do with my breakfast with Talia, which really, you know, Bled into our relationship because I hadn't been able to do that yet.
So like happy you possibly start something new when you're still trying to deal with the old, that was constantly a problem. And then we had the additional issue of, um, drew suddenly being a mega hot superstar model and, uh, his head. And that was all, did its own
Anthony Drew: [00:57:17] problem.
Tully Smyth: [00:57:19] And your head just being fucking enormous.
Suddenly you went from being quite shy, like chemical engineering student to like, Oh,
Anthony Drew: [00:57:27] can we just do that one more time?
Tully Smyth: [00:57:30] So yeah, there were, anyway, I moved to Melbourne. I was a LAN. He wasn't,
Anthony Drew: [00:57:37] it was a bit of a prick,
Tully Smyth: [00:57:38] which is fine. That happens. Yeah. So moving on. Great.
Jess Lucas: [00:57:43] Let's let drew say, uh, have you guys had a big brother reunion?
Tully Smyth: [00:57:47] We haven't, they wouldn't jokes muscle going to Bali together,
Anthony Drew: [00:57:51] which is the show though.
Tully Smyth: [00:57:53] We haven't. I actually being who I am and Jess, you know who I am, who I am now. I started a Facebook like secret group, right after the show that were also a part of that. We hate
Anthony Drew: [00:58:03] not a part of that group.
Tully Smyth: [00:58:04] You are part of that group.
Why not? You are a part of that group. You think a so called? Why
Jess Lucas: [00:58:10] would you want to leave it?
Tully Smyth: [00:58:12] You're part of that group on the fucker. Jess asked her that question is no, no. Just plain there. Would you be down for
Anthony Drew: [00:58:22] anything but beyond that?
Tully Smyth: [00:58:24] Why? Okay. What's your issue there?
Anthony Drew: [00:58:28] It's uh, it's it's near tapes of him for like little reasons or be Grizzlies.
Tully Smyth: [00:58:34] Would you do an old sauce with me?
Anthony Drew: [00:58:36] No, no way. Not because no, no, I wouldn't do it again. I've always said I'd do it. If I had my life over, I would still do it, but I would never do it twice
Jess Lucas: [00:58:46] with anyone from the show. Still
Anthony Drew: [00:58:48] this one, Tim books to Han
Tully Smyth: [00:58:52] yeah.
Books loves you. Tani is pregnant. Yeah. Benny
Anthony Drew: [00:58:58] precious Ben black mates. There are some that. You know, nothing. And then there are other side weren't tolerant.
Jess Lucas: [00:59:07] Yeah. It's just crazy that you guys didn't have this experience and then you, can't not can't, but you're not friends with them anymore, or you don't hang out
Tully Smyth: [00:59:13] with friends and literally all of them by one, like I, but also our personalities are very, like, he's very much like.
It's hard for me to get him to reply to my messages. You know, like he's, whereas I'm very much about keeping up with people and like keep in contact. So I am friends with everyone, Bob Roohan, which I think was absolute waste for fucking housemate. And he should just never have been, honestly, that kid can go and dislike.
Anthony Drew: [00:59:36] You didn't make that blog dog had all the long hair,
Tully Smyth: [00:59:40] Justin, he still damns me. Mr. Smith. Yeah. And then Dror, he hasn't said it, but human, um, ed didn't get along ever. So we had out, we had our differences also the reason, um, if you guys saw the viral Tik TOK video, um, the reason we are arguing about that that night was because of something that ed said to me,
Jess Lucas: [01:00:01] fuck.
That was funny. Drew, did you love it?
Anthony Drew: [01:00:04] Which one in the pool?
Tully Smyth: [01:00:06] Plus PC with dollars. It's great. They come on. It's great.
Anthony Drew: [01:00:11] It's not my norm. My favorite scene with me in it. No, no, no, no. When, when ed gets a victim,
Tully Smyth: [01:00:20] I haven't been, I haven't, I haven't, this isn't one of my
Anthony Drew: [01:00:23] favorite gets evicted. And you know how we always, when, before, if you're out for nomination, the six of you, you know, big brother to call you in and you do your exit video, it's like, Special measures like, um, to Jess, you know, really gonna miss you.
You're my rock in the house. Tele dine Hill, that sort of thing. No one ever said that
Jess Lucas: [01:00:46] you driving a wedge between us. Stop
Anthony Drew: [01:00:50] always be my plan. No
Tully Smyth: [01:00:53] emotional, physical, like positive emotion out of here, but he's really
Anthony Drew: [01:00:58] give me a break and I'll see us though. Ed was a, that was F it was worse than that because for Jade's no, no, no, no, no, no.
Jade. Jade and him were together.
Tully Smyth: [01:01:09] I'd love to see what she says. I love you to hear. And he goes, and she follows him around. So hit back
Anthony Drew: [01:01:20] a mistake. It gets, it gets a victim, very diplomatically. It goes around to a few of his mates and it's like, yeah, you know, like I'll miss the old Tom's old boy. And then it gets to judge and be like,
See you on the outside kid, like just ruthless.
Tully Smyth: [01:01:40] Yeah. I'm being nice. And I don't want to do us to be more like heartfelt.
Anthony Drew: [01:01:45] It just cuts to me. And I was just stuck.
Tully Smyth: [01:01:47] I mean, it would be hard to put on your Twitter account where you're like,
Anthony Drew: [01:01:51] I got gift. I think
Tully Smyth: [01:01:52] you did get gifts. It was a gift might've but you wrote, like raising your eyebrows.
Jess Lucas: [01:01:57] Um, okay. So as you know, tele popped a question up on our Instagram last night. We've got some juicy questions from her audience.
Tully Smyth: [01:02:05] Sorry, advance. I have no control over these.
Jess Lucas: [01:02:08] Most of them were pretty thirsty as
Tully Smyth: [01:02:10] usual.
Jess Lucas: [01:02:13] First question off the ranks, Beth has asked. Did drew ever feel guilty about the Talia situation?
Anthony Drew: [01:02:19] Uh, yes, Beth, I did.
Jess Lucas: [01:02:20] For sure.
Tully Smyth: [01:02:23] Can I ask you a question on behalf of Italia?
Anthony Drew: [01:02:26] Yes.
Tully Smyth: [01:02:26] Carl's always thought that if she was in male. So if I had a boyfriend, you would have respected that relationship more and not done. What you did. He didn't carry the way?
Anthony Drew: [01:02:38] Uh, no, not that I didn't carry the way. It was never, I was never more after you because you're with a girl on the outside.
Tully Smyth: [01:02:47] If I had a boyfriend, would you have been less after me because I had a boyfriend and you respected the masculine energy rather than the
Anthony Drew: [01:02:54] cause I was more, I was more intimidated, more intimidated Italia than I would have been of any boyfriend
Tully Smyth: [01:02:59] that I've had.
Jess Lucas: [01:03:01] Georgia has said, would you ever get back together?
Tully Smyth: [01:03:05] He takes a big sip of his drink. That's great. Soundbite.
Anthony Drew: [01:03:14] You're not cheap to run.
Tully Smyth: [01:03:18] Is that a no answer? The question.
Jess Lucas: [01:03:22] She's a working class gal as well though. So she could play for us
Anthony Drew: [01:03:26] in your own way.
Tully Smyth: [01:03:27] Answer the question for Georgia,
Anthony Drew: [01:03:29] Georgia. I don't think. I think it would cut down Spence considerably
Tully Smyth: [01:03:37] because you kill each
Jess Lucas: [01:03:38] other or, okay. All right. Stella said, do you have any moments that you wish big brother would have shown or wouldn't have shown?
Tully Smyth: [01:03:49] He doesn't watch the show? Neither have I. So it's harshly. It's hard to know what he's. Shown complete. And we don't know, people always like, Oh, you know, we saw you guys fall in love. And we don't, we haven't really seen that.
Anthony Drew: [01:04:00] There was nothing, I never said anything. I I've never said anything or did anything that I really at the times like, said, fuck, I should have said that.
Jess Lucas: [01:04:12] Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [01:04:12] Like making jokes, like that was always, that was, was a hard thing. Not making. Yeah. Actually
Tully Smyth: [01:04:19] not knowing, not knowing who you are now, you, you way more Polish than I was like, you saw me at you. If you watch the show now, you know, I'm like the same. You were actually quite together. You kept your shit quite Polish.
Anthony Drew: [01:04:33] I was never
Tully Smyth: [01:04:35] aware of the camera was aware of the cameras. Like he, I, you know, I got to these first few weeks after leaving the show and like dating drew, I was like, who is, who is this person? Wait, you're grumpy. You would never come to me in the house. Who, what you have, what you have at temple? What, what is this?
What is this? Whereas I was always myself, 110% rightly or wrongly. And it was often wrongly. You, that's why they wanted you to be an actor. I will say that this, there was one moment. I'm not sure if they've showed it. You can, maybe you can tell me, I didn't watch the show back, but it might've been the night before, the night before I was evicted, it was someone's birthday.
Ben's birthday. And we usually, when we have birthdays for housemates, we have a party. So all day, you know, which means like access food drinks, which is, you know, after days and days and days on end at the same shit, it means a lot. So we're all waiting for the party. It was like getting laid later. There was no food.
There were no, it we're like what's going on. We didn't know he had a bigger thing planned in the days coming, but we were all kind of pissed off and we'd have a weird mood. And I kind of had this feeling that like I was up for eviction. I kind of, I knew I was going the next day. And we had an argument. I can remember, we were both wearing, we had an argument and I was shitty.
I think I was just, I was just shooting because I knew I was going and I was sad and I didn't want to go. And like, I was just upset, but I couldn't say any of that. So I would just find some other reason to like, be annoyed with you. Sorry. Um, anyway, I gone to bed and he'd set up. We will be drinking, I think maybe anyway, he came to bed later.
He had scaled the walls of the compound. He grabbed. Some flowers that were really high off you saw, Oh, now you remember it. He grabbed some flowers of his really high pot and he like got one of our players, Alec toothbrush holders that we would use to hold our toothbrushes. And he fill that with water and use as a vase and put it next to up my method table.
So when I wake up, I had some flowers and evolves. My you're pretty romantic through was that short? Not, I don't know if that was a doubt shine.
Jess Lucas: [01:06:46] I don't remember that, but
Tully Smyth: [01:06:48] I haven't like a thing, like what I'm like, what is what's going on? I was like,
Jess Lucas: [01:06:56] Carol said, do you miss tele? I mean, you live around the corner from each
Anthony Drew: [01:07:00] other.
Yeah. We've never, we've never really fallen out of.
Well, I mean, that is the burden of being my friend.
Tully Smyth: [01:07:12] Jury's had a lot of relationships since us, whereas I haven't, so I'm always open to being friends. It came with that, like the line of communications open and it's sometimes hard that's for him
Anthony Drew: [01:07:23] until he's never really read it with my ex partners.
Tully Smyth: [01:07:26] He's ex partners like me.
I don't, they don't understand. It's bizarre. No, me neither, but do you miss me
Anthony Drew: [01:07:35] too? I see you all the time. Yes.
Jess Lucas: [01:07:40] All right. Sarah said, how will Jess cope being in the same room as
Tully Smyth: [01:07:44] true? I think I've already answered that with you going
you guys bright rec, are you right now?
Jess Lucas: [01:07:59] Waiting for your answer
Tully Smyth: [01:08:02] guard. You got bright red cross. I was
Jess Lucas: [01:08:06] laughing though
Tully Smyth: [01:08:08] me. He put his hair up. You will potty in his hands.
Jess Lucas: [01:08:13] It's like,
Tully Smyth: [01:08:20] be the dad
Jess Lucas: [01:08:21] was kidding. Drum. Sorry to objectify. You. Tali knows how to do it.
Tully Smyth: [01:08:25] I wouldn't say that. I said enough of that shit. Um,
Jess Lucas: [01:08:28] grace has said, do you have any regrets about the relationship you have with tele?
Anthony Drew: [01:08:31] Um, not regrets. But it wasn't real. It was more real inside the house and then outside, because there was all these extra pressures, like always my, I wasn't myself after the 12, 24 months after the house and neither was Shea.
And I think, um, so it's hard. It wasn't given a real life.
Tully Smyth: [01:08:57] Yeah. I always struggled with that as well. I think that we've discussed multiple times the fact that it feels like, I dunno, like that house we were, we were ourselves. Like, that's why, you know, he hasn't heard this part, but like that quote that you quoted before and the intro, like, I may not, I really mean that, um, he did know like, You have no, I was so bored.
You guys think that those shows are like fun every day? They were like seven days a week doing nothing, but talk to you
Anthony Drew: [01:09:24] pretty much. The last six months of oscillation, that is pretty much what he said, but you can't leave. You can't drink.
Text me back.
Tully Smyth: [01:09:36] Um, yeah, I, we, yeah, we, we, we, we were a true, authentic Rory version of ourselves in the house and that's how he fell in love. And then we came out and we were thrust in the spotlight. We were instantly famous. People wanted a piece of us. Our heads got really big, you know, we had these vague, vague plans to go away on holiday, just the two of us and to be by ourselves.
And we didn't do that because we both got really caught up
Anthony Drew: [01:10:02] in that
Tully Smyth: [01:10:04] makes me cry. Cause like we've, we've got really caught up in the parties and the, you know, w we were being invited to everything. We had, like the priest heads gig and we went, you know, we had so much stuff happening and we both,
Anthony Drew: [01:10:16] there was a launch with the X-Box right.
Tully Smyth: [01:10:18] We had to have two butt heads gigs together. You get it right caught up in it. And before we knew it, we were we'd fallen apart. And I just, sometimes I wonder whether have we taken that time? Have you put each other first and our relationship first and taken that time to go to Bali, to go to devil's foot, even to go to fucking suck Canberra for fuck's sake and just being drew and Holly in the real world, but away from all that stuff.
Yeah, I'm always, I think, forever going to wonder whether we would have worked out. I think that will be probably one of my life regrets.
Anthony Drew: [01:10:52] Well, it's short without, without it we'd never have met each other, but. What it took to turn us into us. Not work.
Tully Smyth: [01:10:59] Yeah,
Jess Lucas: [01:11:00] not really socks. Okay. Emma has said, is it hard having a face that's been carved by angels?
Tully Smyth: [01:11:07] Do you want Moz Instagram handle
Jess Lucas: [01:11:11] back off Emma?
Tully Smyth: [01:11:13] He's beautiful there, right? Like what could he do even today? Like he's not even modeling anymore. And he just his face
Jess Lucas: [01:11:20] and he got home at 5:00 AM. Like, fuck you.
Tully Smyth: [01:11:23] He's. Yeah, Riley's hung over his birthday yesterday. Um, he came at me and some friends a couple of weeks ago for a drink.
And this random guy looked at me. He sat down, he was like, this is a straight male. Was like, you just be used. So, yeah, Emma 80 is hot. He clearly really hates it. Hates it.
Jess Lucas: [01:11:42] I mean, he's coy about it. Now you look at his body language. He's like, don't talk to me.
Tully Smyth: [01:11:47] That's in cocky mate. Like.
Jess Lucas: [01:11:49] Oh, that's flexing.
Anthony Drew: [01:11:52] No, not this one.
Jess Lucas: [01:11:53] Ah, there we go. They boating. All right. So Hannah has said, um, what do you like most about our gal tele?
Anthony Drew: [01:12:03] You're always very loyal, I suppose. I'm not. Yeah. As a, as a friend, I S I know that I've, I'm not the best. In terms of communication, getting back to you or just being moody and you have always, and I know it's not just me, it's across the board for a lot of people that you will persevere with a friendship, even though you know, you do, you do, you do a lot more of the legwork and most friends.
Jess Lucas: [01:12:26] What's your favorite thing about
Anthony Drew: [01:12:27] her then? Um,
Jess Lucas: [01:12:29] personality wise and then physically
Anthony Drew: [01:12:32] personality wise. You're smart.
Tully Smyth: [01:12:34] We have such good sense of humor like you and I, we make these jokes. I would never set it. Anybody else? Like we've got a really wicked doc doc.
Anthony Drew: [01:12:44] Yeah. You're pretty off color. We're pretty off color physically given that you're how old
Tully Smyth: [01:12:49] 33,
Anthony Drew: [01:12:50] the whole thing is pretty impressive.
Tully Smyth: [01:12:54] You can stay, you can stay well done. Well done.
Jess Lucas: [01:13:01] Okay. I've got. One final game.
Tully Smyth: [01:13:03] I know guys
Jess Lucas: [01:13:05] are going to need to fill out drinks up for this game because you're going to need to take a sip for every auntie get
Tully Smyth: [01:13:13] raw shit.
Jess Lucas: [01:13:14] And I'm really loving your odds tally because your memory
Tully Smyth: [01:13:21] always been bad. Okay. You're going to be so bad at this. So wait, what are we doing? You're going to give us, uh,
Jess Lucas: [01:13:27] yeah. So what I did is I went through old YouTube videos of YouTube in the house, which
Tully Smyth: [01:13:31] we haven't watched it. She haven't
Jess Lucas: [01:13:33] watched, you don't remember, you don't know what was add and what wasn't.
And so I have quotes from the both of you and they're all in different scenes, different scenarios. And so
Tully Smyth: [01:13:45] what,
Jess Lucas: [01:13:46] what you guys need to do is decide who said what? Alrighty, first one.
Tully Smyth: [01:13:52] Oh, no.
Jess Lucas: [01:13:53] I'm not playing it condescending game. I'm the only one who cares about you in this house.
Tully Smyth: [01:13:59] That was me. I want, truly cares about you in this house.
I remember when I said that was me. That was me. So I don't drink
Jess Lucas: [01:14:09] or you didn't have to drink.
Tully Smyth: [01:14:13] Okay. Next person cares about you. This house. Sorry.
Jess Lucas: [01:14:18] I've never really had mixed signals from someone
Anthony Drew: [01:14:21] that was me. Yeah,
Tully Smyth: [01:14:22] absolutely. It was him. Yeah. Like a hundred percent. Let's do it.
Jess Lucas: [01:14:27] I didn't know how hard or easy this is going.
Tully Smyth: [01:14:29] This is hard.
Jess Lucas: [01:14:31] This one's going to be obvious. I think some models just have the, I just bought it arm swing
Tully Smyth: [01:14:39] when I said that.
Anthony Drew: [01:14:40] you put on a whole
Tully Smyth: [01:14:42] clinic.
Jess Lucas: [01:14:43] I have another one in there. I just want to talk to you about it. You've got to like horse strong. You've got to do really diff definite footsteps
Anthony Drew: [01:14:52] showing the, you showing the, showing the blonde twins, a walk out the back and the pony stump.
Tully Smyth: [01:15:00] That is okay. Cool. We'll be
Jess Lucas: [01:15:02] the sisters 10.
Next one. I feel so safe.
Tully Smyth: [01:15:09] Was may for sure. You'd never say that we've
Anthony Drew: [01:15:14] organized that. Cause it's,
it's a card from weddings, wedding crashes.
Tully Smyth: [01:15:23] So
Jess Lucas: [01:15:23] you're walking in yourself. You're wrong.
Tully Smyth: [01:15:30] Cause you were hugging him from behind
Jess Lucas: [01:15:32] and
Tully Smyth: [01:15:40] that's so cute. It was funny because
Jess Lucas: [01:15:42] I don't know if you meant it.
Tully Smyth: [01:15:43] No, he meant it like that. Clearly look at you. I
Jess Lucas: [01:15:45] feel so safe normally like and then
Tully Smyth: [01:15:52] I like being big.
Jess Lucas: [01:15:54] The chat box. Okay. I'm not a new kid on the block. I know how to play the game.
Tully Smyth: [01:16:02] I didn't have, I wasn't playing EV ever playing a game though.
So I don't think it was you each other.
Anthony Drew: [01:16:07] I think I've never said you could make it on the,
Tully Smyth: [01:16:10] get on the block.
I wasn't playing a game. I wasn't playing a game. So that was definitely cause you were fucking playing a game. Oh, God, that was a great win for me personally, on a personal level. Thank you so much. Yes.
Anthony Drew: [01:16:31] I just didn't want that to be true about myself.
Tully Smyth: [01:16:35] Okay. You don't even care what you want.
Jess Lucas: [01:16:37] You'll take it.
Tully Smyth: [01:16:39] it's made about Jade. That's me about Jade. That's me, but Jade is that my right
Jess Lucas: [01:16:44] answer.
Anthony Drew: [01:16:46] One more time.
Jess Lucas: [01:16:46] Um, you don't even care what you want. You'll take it. It gives it. You'd give it a try.
Tully Smyth: [01:16:54] Right?
Anthony Drew: [01:16:57] I
Tully Smyth: [01:16:57] didn't like, but I didn't like J is that because the way they came in, I was constantly conscious of her. And then when I left, I was conscious of her and he likes to still, to this day, to this day for funsies, I will make you go there. He texts me and said stuff like, Oh yeah, you know what? That Tommy fuck was so great.
Jess Lucas: [01:17:20] But you fucked giant
Tully Smyth: [01:17:21] gave a fuck. He does that to me like,
Anthony Drew: [01:17:24] Oh yeah, no, I would take to that sometimes.
Tully Smyth: [01:17:29] Hey, what a fun guy.
Jess Lucas: [01:17:31] He's picking that up. Daily mail, um,
Anthony Drew: [01:17:36] was the only fans to be in
Tully Smyth: [01:17:38] you and I, right? What?
Jess Lucas: [01:17:41] Okay. Next one. I make no secret. I'm a really affectionate person and I like cuddles and hugs.
Tully Smyth: [01:17:49] That was me trying to talk my way out over the fact that I was shaking my partner with him being like, you know what, I'm just a really affectionate person.
Like, it's just like, you know, everyone gets called and hugs for me, which they did, but you got the Rusty's
Jess Lucas: [01:18:05] tent pole in the bed.
Tully Smyth: [01:18:07] Now I was, I guess it was like a spoon. Risk-taking the Palmers. Yeah, right.
Jess Lucas: [01:18:13] Okay. Next one. We found out that we're just too big nerds into tall bodies,
Tully Smyth: [01:18:21] Tim. I think it's, I think it's him.
Jess Lucas: [01:18:25] Are you looking at totally,
Anthony Drew: [01:18:26] totally.
Jess Lucas: [01:18:28] It was you,
Tully Smyth: [01:18:28] he said it was,
Jess Lucas: [01:18:30] it was a really sad moment
Tully Smyth: [01:18:32] actually.
And you miss me.
Jess Lucas: [01:18:39] Okay. Can we talk about trust for a second?
Anthony Drew: [01:18:46] I've seen that over and over
some weed Southern drawl
Tully Smyth: [01:18:53] trust for a second. And he's going, because who's got to hear the other
Jess Lucas: [01:18:58] people who live here,
Tully Smyth: [01:18:59] I'm in the poll.
Jess Lucas: [01:19:02] I'm sorry. That video kills me every
Tully Smyth: [01:19:03] time. My, you know, we can't even hate it because it's so great. And when it went viral, him and I were both like, Fair enough and many loved it.
We love Betty. We both love Benny so much and I will let you know what that does, but you guys don't see what the cut, the clip. They cut. Drew got like completely like took all his clothes off of him with Benny. Like you can be like, fuck this shit. You got completely nerd got the pool with beanie. And then you just re keep her pairing.
I mean, that's, that's the title of my favorite porno
Jess Lucas: [01:19:37] that see farm again.
Tully Smyth: [01:19:46] Okay.
Jess Lucas: [01:19:47] It was like a human game of chess and he brought out these. Emotions out in you. I love you.
Tully Smyth: [01:19:55] I'm going to say for someone saying, I love you may be also, I love you to me.
Anthony Drew: [01:20:00] You said, Hey, so it has to be you,
Jess Lucas: [01:20:04] you said it.
Anthony Drew: [01:20:05] Oh, I'd watch that.
Tully Smyth: [01:20:11] Well,
Jess Lucas: [01:20:12] um, the context was when you were in, it was after the, that whole TedTalk thing, when you were laying on the couch and you were, um, he was crying as well, but you were also crying. Yeah. Uh, and it's funny because Ben was still trying to make you happy.
Anthony Drew: [01:20:30] Well,
Jess Lucas: [01:20:30] you guys were on the couch together and then Ben was saying that telly was upset and then he was trying to be funny and like make her laugh, I think.
Tully Smyth: [01:20:39] And then you said that.
Jess Lucas: [01:20:42] Maybe we'll find a YouTube video.
Tully Smyth: [01:20:44] Can we please? Yeah.
Anthony Drew: [01:20:46] Footage of
Jess Lucas: [01:20:47] the cards I
Tully Smyth: [01:20:47] have for you. Well, I, um, as we're wrapping up, I don't really want to wrap up because we have to easily lose that one.
We always knew we're going to, we have a, I have a present for you, but. Why are you smart? So I can like that
Anthony Drew: [01:21:03] defense mechanism.
Tully Smyth: [01:21:06] Um, it was your birthday yesterday. And can we please discuss guys just so you guys know drew was actually evicted to your birthday. Seven years ago actually. Yeah. Was evicted. I was already out.
Obviously I flew up to meet him. I stayed with him for his Fremont appearances at the QT. I gave him the best practice in the world, which was at the time that the latest and greatest Cod game, cause he's been a bit of a nerd and a
Anthony Drew: [01:21:36] ticket,
Tully Smyth: [01:21:38] our nerd
Anthony Drew: [01:21:40] throwing the N word around.
Tully Smyth: [01:21:41] And then we got, um, tickets to laneway.
Cause we were both kind of, I think that kind of music. Great presence, right. That he's following girlfriend just copied the year after. Anyway, my point is, is that, um, she did a present, but I wanted to keep to you on air. So is that with the card first
Anthony Drew: [01:22:01] times?
Tully Smyth: [01:22:02] Tie-ins so, yeah, I used to call him drew, drew, Ruby, dribs, big Tony tones and, um, big Doug, which is someone else.
Jess Lucas: [01:22:17] I was like crawl warrior King
Tully Smyth: [01:22:19] he's he's the lamb is dark. So his name is Anthony Douglas drew. So why would you call this call? Is Dick Doug. I mean, is that appropriate? Sorry. You're right. Read it out. Read it actually to
Anthony Drew: [01:22:32] the verbal
Tully Smyth: [01:22:35] he's tonic
Jess Lucas: [01:22:35] fighting. Cause we're drinking now.
Anthony Drew: [01:22:39] Happy birthday Wonka. You, you
Tully Smyth: [01:22:42] owe
Anthony Drew: [01:22:42] me a date handwriting, still a lot worse.
Tully Smyth: [01:22:48] You know what? This is cute. I have no idea, no idea. Rambo. It's a audio platform. So let's describe what we're doing and where I'm not going to present any idea yet.
Jess Lucas: [01:23:04] What is it drew?
Jess Lucas: [01:23:05] a Frisbee. Why? Why is there a Frisbee and like
Anthony Drew: [01:23:10] a singular Frisbee in big brother?
Tully Smyth: [01:23:12] The same Frisbee.
Anthony Drew: [01:23:14] Is that the very same the ring. Yeah. And there wasn't much to do. And Wesley, both of us are not really sports do spirits. We don't do sports. Paul's
Tully Smyth: [01:23:27] like, yeah,
Anthony Drew: [01:23:27] we bought the, the, the outfits.
Um, but we had, we found a Frisbee and turns out we could actually use that. And we.
Yeah, I would say I would sit there for hours. We'll stand there for hours throwing a Frisbee.
Tully Smyth: [01:23:44] And you won't remember this cause your memory again is shocking. You said to me, the minute we get out of here, I want to take you to the 10 and have a Frisbee date with you. And you have yet to do that. I know we've broken up and they're both still very single, but my card says, as a reminder, Hey, birthday, one car, which is what we used to call together as it's it's a cute seat name.
You owe me a day. Correct? So we'll we, will you have me on a date at the tan, with a Frisbee?
Anthony Drew: [01:24:14] You buying the drinks.
Tully Smyth: [01:24:15] Did I always
Anthony Drew: [01:24:17] that's true.

Um, Jess, I've met your dreams come true because you have now met and fractures, trolley.
