Will ‘Blow Up’ Blow You Away? Meet the Cast

Blow Up: The name of a new Australian reality series, and not the name of a terrorist threat. Rather, the Blow Up Australia 2023 cast will introduce us to 10 Australian balloon artists.

The aim? A battle for superiority in a gauntlet of stupefying tests. Will they create balloon bikes you can ride? Will they create balloon dogs the size of a house? Well, there’s only one way to get the deets.

What’s more, the Blow Up Australia 2023 cast is competing for a whopping $100,000 prize. Just imagine how many balloons you could buy. You’d never need to go to Spotlight again.

However, Blow Up Australia doesn’t just star an A+ cast, they have a wonderful pair of judges. The Castle’s very own Stephen Curry is one. Meanwhile, the most talented comic in Australia, Becky Lucas, is the other. And no, we’re not being hyperbolic. Becky Lucas is the GOAT, and in a press statement, Lucas said she was “genuinely surprised” by what the Blow Up Australia cast brought to the competition.

“I thought I was walking in prepared, but I was shocked every time I saw them use a new technique to create something,” she said.

“I was also surprised by how established the scene is in Australia and how supportive they are of each other. If someone learns a new technique that helps create a better balloon creation, they share it with their friends as soon as they can.”

But, let’s quit with the preamble, here’s the whole cast of Blow Up.
