Series 1, Episode 2 - The Gold Coast
Tina explores Brisbane, where developers have built so many skyscraper hotels that the beach is in shade for most of the day. She sings her version of Waltzing Matilda on a local breakfast TV show and parties at a redneck bar.
Tina's entourage rolls into Brisbane. Most usually called Bris-Vegas, this city is on the edge of the huge Gold Coast resort where developers have famously built so many skyscraper hotels that the beach is in shade for most of the day. Tina explores the tackiest, white-trashiest example in modern Australia. She sings her version of Waltzing Matilda - Yes why did Billy Have to Boil? - live on a local breakfast TV show. She parties at a redneck bar and sings her new single He's My Methadone (But You're My Drug).
