Surprise Surprise Gotcha is an Australian hidden camera practical joke television series. Hosted by radio personalities Matt Tilley and Jackie O, the series commenced on the Nine Network on 18 September 2007.[1]


The title incorporated "Gotcha" from Tilley's "gotcha calls" on his highly successful The Matt and Jo Show on FOX FM. The series sets up Australian celebrities to fall prey to elaborate practical jokes. Celebrity victims include Shane Crawford, Tara Moss, Dermott Brereton and Amanda Keller. The series was produced and directed by Marc Gracie.[2]

Surprise Surprise, a series with the same premise hosted by Jay Laga'aia, had previously aired on Nine in 2000.[3][4]
