Man O Man was an Australian television game show that was broadcast of the Seven Network in 1994. Hosted by stage actor Rob Guest and Jason Body, the program was based on the original German version of the same name.

Program synopsis[edit]

The program was presented loosely in the format of a male beauty pageant whereby an all-female audience voted for the winner via a series of elimination rounds. Notably, losing contestants would be pushed into a swimming pool.

The final episode of Man O Man, which aired on 25 November 1994, was a Footballers Challenge special that featured players from Australian rules football, rugby league and Soccer.

The episode was more risqué than usual, with some footballers performing a striptease for the talent act round.

Man O Man returned briefly to the Seven Network on 26 January 1997 when the first episode was repeated as part of the network's Coca-Cola Interactive Summer Night promotion...however, the show has not been repeated since.

Man O Man was filmed at the Seven Network Melbourne studios located in South Melbourne. The studio which was used for the show is currently utilised as the Dancing with the Stars dance floor set.
