Hold onto your hair extensions, MTV has just confirmed a new local production where Aussies are the stars! Geordie Shore and Ex on the Beach stud Ricci Guarnaccio, who has recently made the move down-under, made an announcement live this morning on KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show that he will be joined by vocal powerhouse and former Pussycat Dolls star, Melody Thornton, on the search for -Australia's Ultimate Worldie'.
The phrase -Worldie' was made famous by MTV's hit show Geordie Shore and can be defined as the below:
An individual who possesses all round -out of this world' awesomeness which includes the following qualities; hotness, great sense of humour, fit body, charismatic nature and a positive lust for life.
Together Ricci and Melody will visit 20 cities, travelling coastlines and crossing deserts on a plight to find a male or female who they will crown -Australia's Ultimate Worldie'.
'I absolutely love Australia and I can't wait to showcase every part of it. I'm on the hunt for worldies and what better place to find them!" said Ricci Guarnaccio. 'For me the winner needs to be more than a straight ten, someone who has the banter and the personality to back it up. They have to be an overall epic human and I can't wait to join MTV on an adventure to find the ULTIMATE WORLDIE!"
'I've had a lot of experience when it comes to girls, rivalries and competitions, but I can't wait to see what Australia has to offer! I'll be looking for Aussie guys and girls who are beautiful on the inside and out!" said Melody Thornton
The local production, which is set to film throughout June, will premiere on MTV in Australia mid-2016. -Worldie' fans will be able to follow the journey live as it unfolds throughout June on www.mtv.com.au as well as MTV Australia's socials media accounts. Further details on tour schedules, how to enter, and prizes will be announced by MTV online shortly.
