Dr Mumbo

Vote for Karl 2016

Will Karl Stefanovic run for parliament next year?

You can bet on almost anything these days, and bookmaker Sportsbet isn’t one to let an opportunity slip past.

It’s produced a list of odds for what will be 2015’s best and worst shows, with Nine’s new show Rennovation Rumble featuring stars of The Block and Seven’s House Rules, to get the highest ratings for a new show, although its flop last year Big Brother is favourite to be axed first.

Dr Mumbo particularly likes the look of the futures market on Nine’s Today Show and serial suit monogamist host Karl Stefanovic, and may put a few bucks on his predicted parliamentary campaign in 2016 above a fist fight with Sunrise rival David Koch.

Of course the problem with taking these punts now is we have to wait a year to see what comes true.
