Forget Meghan and Harry, thanks to Pete and Fiona, the TV wedding of the Year occurred in the Jungle when pseudo celebrities Ron and Brenda, renewed their vows on camera in front of thousands of bugs, worms spiders, snakes and some celebrities. All were invited back for the wedding feast…some as food others as guests! For thousands of Australians the banter between Fiona and Pete’s alter egos Ron and Brenda was the highlight of the series and social media went nuts demanding the two do their own show…so what Twitter wants…Twitter gets!
