Was the SA Idols “farting girl” a setup?
Posted by on Jul 26th, 2010

It’s Idols time in South Africa incase you didn’t know and if you’re one of the 14 people who are watching then you would have seen the woman who farted while being filmed during one of the auditions.


When i heard about it i was amped. Hey..anytime you manage to catch a woman letting one rip on video is a “thumbs up” moment..let alone a woman in front of a panel of judges on a television broadcast.

So i went to YouTube and pressed play:

Hey?? Did you catch that.

Let’s watch that again to make sure.

Huh?? What fart?

Granted there is a slight noise, but come now people that was pretty pathetic. A mouse could do better. Almost to the point where i’m thinking it was edited in there. None of the judges laughed and all Gareth Cliff says is :”we all fart when we’re nervous”.

And the comment section includes the following:

“this is the funniest shit ever!!!” and “AAH this is classic, never laughed so much!!!”

Are these people watching the same video?

UPDATE: see i told you. The “farting girl” is publically denying that she farted. “Yesterday, Tracey Lee, who did not make it to the second round, commented on the M-Net website.
“I didn’t fart,”

Tracey there? If bye any chance you stumble on this post let us know what really happened hey. Did Gareth really say those words while you were there? Sue them and lets make a stink out of this.

Ha! I would have wet myself too if i could hear the damn thing. Anyways..i’m convinced it was a setup. That girl is denying it now. You never know these days with viral marketing…and MNET needs to spice sh*t up with the Idols show…so to speak.

I am not sure if it was real or not, but if you want to watch it, find it on and search her there.. It is killing.. Even if its not true, good for a laugh!

Even Tracy Lee seemed unaware of her “so called fart” untill Gareth’s commented on it

She still is denying that she did it, but it seems she is definately not complaining about the media attention she’s getting. She’s milking that fart…wait..that doesn’t right.
