The perils of live TV! Natalie Barr gasps over a VERY rude remark during Sam Mac’s weather cross as he interviews two young women at Balmoral Beach










It’s not every day you hear the word ‘cornhole’ on live television.

So it’s no wonder Sunrise host Natalie Barr was taken by surprise when the word popped up during Sam Mac’s weather cross on Tuesday.

Sam was broadcasting from Balmoral Beach in Sydney when he approached two young women who were playing a game and asked them what it was called.

The women said they were playing ‘Cornhole’, prompting Natalie to gasp and say ‘What?!’ from the studio. 

In addition to being a popular lawn game, ‘cornhole’ is also a slang term for a taboo sex act. 

It would appear Natalie thought the women were making a crude joke.

Explaining the rules of Cornhole to Sam, one beachgoer said: ‘It’s like little beanbags, and you try and under-arm it [into the hole]’. 

‘There you go, we’ve learned a new game for summer,’ Sam replied, trying his hardest not to burst into laughter. 

‘I think Cornhole is really going to catch on this summer. I can see it being exclusively on Seven. We’re going to get the rights to the Cornhole world championships!’ he added. 

What is Cornhole?  

Cornhole is a lawn game in which players toss a small bag of corn towards a slanted platform. 

The aim is to land the bag inside a hole at the centre of the platform. 

Players receive three points if they land the beanbag in the hole, while landing the beanbag on the board scores one point. 

The winner is the first person to reach or exceed the score of 21. 

Back in the studio, Natalie admitted she’d ‘never heard of Cornhole before’ and genuinely couldn’t believe it was a popular game. 

Fill-in presenter Michael Usher insisted it was very popular in his home city of Perth, explaining: ‘It’s an old WA thing.’ 

Natalie, who also grew up in Western Australia, giggled: ‘Except the other person from WA has never heard of it!’
