Geordie Shore's Gaz speed dates in Auckland
It's been described as reality TV’s nadir - which is really saying something.
But despite the critics, Geordie Shore's popularity continues to soar.
So much so, one of the show’s stars, Gaz, is in New Zealand to promote the fifth season.
He claims guys want to be him and that girls want to be with him. Gaz from Geordie Shore really is living the dream.
“A person will just walk up to me and say ‘I will give you the best sex you have ever had’. And she’ll join in and she’ll join in.”
For six weeks at a time Gaz, real name Gary Beadle, is thrown into a house along with eight other 20-somethings for all the drinking, sex and mayhem they can handle - every moment caught on camera of course
“Threesomes, foursomes, orgies, banging anything in sight,” he says.
He’s gained himself a reputation as a serial shagger claiming to have slept with more than 400 women.
“And I’ve had mums, a mum and a daughter offer a threesome at a nightclub there was five girl hosts and they would literally just offer to queue out of your room and one by one you can bang them all.”
And his reputation precedes him.
Here on a publicity tour for the shows fifth season Gaz tried out speed dating where a girl asked him if he had an STI.
He admitted he does. “That's a stupid question.”
Far more shocking is Gaz's admission that he's actually getting a bit sick of all the sex.
“I said I am sick of banging birds, like. I never thought them words would ever come out my mouth, but it does it does get boring.
“You can meet the fittest girl in the world and she just comes at you like ‘oh my god I’d f*** ruin you, I’d do this, I’d do that.’ I’m like, ‘I hear that every night do, something different.'”
And he also says there’s more to him than just birds and banter.
“There’s a family side to me you would never imagine like me sitting there with my feet up having a cup of tea with my grandad watching western DVDs and world war documentaries. There’s a little geeky side that not a lot of people know about.”
Not that Gaz is planning on slowing down anytime soon.
“I’ve got the best job in the world man, I love it. I could be in a building site in England right now in minus five snowing, hands freezing but I’m going on a bungy in New Zealand, getting pissed and having sex on TV. I think my job, my life’s pretty alright at the moment.”
