According to Nzherald, Thom shared regarding the approach:
"They rang me up, the head honcho producer rang me up, and they just wanted to know a bit more about me, my story."
He added about the offering call from the show:
"Obviously because I've got a young daughter, Nala, I'm a young dad and that bodes well for this type of program. They said, 'We can promise you if you do decide to join the show that you will get through to the semis at least."
The radio co-host Oddy adds:
"These are stunning claims, So when Kelly (Rowland) hits her buzzer or Delta (Goodrem) or whoever is on there … they would have been told by producers, 'You have to turn around for this one?"
Phillips replied Oddy saying:
"They're given a big heads up, That's what they said, 'We can guarantee you, wink, that you'll get through to the later rounds on the show.'"
However, the radio producer Thom denied the offering and later shared his experience via live podcast.
