To celebrate the completion of Ollie and Johnny’s Dive Master training, X-Factor came to Koh Tao, Sairee Beach. The contestants were ‘Tinkerbel’ (Johnny) and ‘Ollie the Spaniard’ (Ollie). They were each asked to ‘dress up’ for the occasion which they somehow mistook for wear a dress…yeah right guys!
The contest began with a duet and our lovely ‘ladies’ performed a version of ‘Year 3000’ by Busted which had the audience wincing to the beat. This was followed by a classic solo and dance performance from the Spaniard crooning ‘Don’t cha’ by the Pussy Cat Dolls. Ollie’s performance was not bad but not quite good enough to knockout Johnny’s alternative rendition of Five’s ‘Everybody Get Up’! The X-Factor panel of judges consisted of our very own Simon Cowell (Neil, DJL DM), Lou (Alex, DJL mentor & Instructor) and Madonna (Rachel one of our own former DMTs). Neil was so disappointed with all the performances he had to leave the building! Either way we thought they were both stars and give them our very special thanks and congratulations on completing their Dive Master course. They both worked really hard over the past 3-6 months are going to be great dive masters and will be missed by us all here.
Back at DJL Diving…we say ‘bring on the next snorkel test’!
