A 36-year-old Hamilton man has been made aware today that the Real Housewives of Auckland has aired its final episode, and says he now feels comfortable reconnecting his television to the power supply.

Gareth Tremain, who disconnected his television when he first learned that RHOAKL* was “an actual thing,” has spent just over two months without moving picture entertainment, for fear of accidentally catching the show even once.

“I honestly don’t know anything about the show,” said Tremain, who, for some reason, is Irish. “I don’t even know what channel it’s on, which is one of the dangers, you see. I just remember hearing that there was a show called Real Housewives of Auckland, and I thought ‘oh no.’ I unplugged my television right then and there. I didn’t want to know anymore.”

Tremain says he didn’t even want to accidentally see an advertisement of the show, and was too afraid to look up what channel it was on, in case he saw something he didn’t want to.

“I’ve had a lot of people say to me, ‘Gareth, why don’t you just stick to another channel?’, but I don’t even know what channel it’s on. I mean, I suppose it’s not on Shine, but I’ve got young kids, and what if they change the channel while I’m not watching them?”

Tremain said he was “much more comfortable” just resolving not to have his television connected, but was “very relieved” to be able to reconnect it today.

“It’s good,” he said. “Now I’ll be able to watch something more high brow, like Jono and Ben.”
