Kurtis and Jason: Support Updates

Since the David and Matty shoot problems we encountered at the start of season 15 we dropped the pre-shoot and pay per vote Gunge Tank vote formats. Since we made these changes we have found it harder to raise the funds to produce the shoots. With this in mind we have re-introduced the formats for our next block of shoots that we are shooting in early June. We are doing this so we can carry on bringing you the best possible shows and new models going forward.

The format worked well in the past and we only stumbled upon problems earlier this season with David and Matt. Most of the models we have worked with have turned up and made the shoots. We want to produce the best material we can and while we will continue to look at other ways to fund the shoots and make up for shortfalls we will be re-introducing this tried and tested formula.

We don't want to increase the prices of our main shows, something we have not done since we started the show over ten years ago. Our pre-shoot and Gunge Tank Votes help some shoots break even and help others that although we make a loss on minimises the damage so we can continue.


Of course there will be problems but we will work through them as we have always done. Most of the you have been understanding when we do encounter problems but we will be working hard to ensure that any problems that do arise are dealt with in the best possible manner.

We hope you can support the shoots with Kurtis and Jason with the Gunge Tank Vote, Pre-shoot and LIVE pass. All of these are now live on the site.

Thanks guys!

Season 15 - Part two!

Hey guys,

Just wanted to give you all a quick update. I have been taking a shooting break since wrapping up Adam's shoot early in April to try and prevent me getting too stressed like last year. It's done me the world of good and with May now nearly here I am about ready to get stuck into the second part of production for season 15 that will shoot over May and June before taking another break in July.

I want to take this opportunity to thank any of you who have supported the season thus far.

Also, remember that if you want to book a private session and come along and star in your very own Splat! Show private sessions are still available. It's been great meeting so many of you and I would love to meet more! Details can be found on the website.

I hope you look forward to and enjoy what we have coming!

How to download and watch on iPhone and iPad

Hey guys,

We wanted to let you know that it is possible for you to download and view the shows if you have an iPhone or iPad as your primary internet device.

Apple does not support downloading, saving and then viewing videos from the internet to your iOS devices. But thankfully there are a number of Apps on the App store that you can download to get around this.

Download the App called Media Tap here

The App has a browser built in that allows you to download the videos to your iOS devices. From there you can view the videos in the Media Tapp app or you can even export them to your camera roll on your iPad or iPhone.

If you need any help, just email us at splathq@gmail.com and we will talk you through the process.

Reader Review: Marc's Messy Fate

Here is a reader review from our latest show, Marc's Messy Fate!

Hi SplatHQ,

Just wanted to pass on my regards for a wonderful new show.
I really enjoyed Marc and his show was a whole lot of fun.
The gungings were brilliant, the quizzes were hilarious to watch and his reactions were so funny,
some of the best I've seen on Splat Show over the years.
I hope you get Marc back for more shows in the future - 
and it would be nice to have some messy feet fun with him too!

The show is going from strength to strength and I am loving the new models lately.
If you'd like any suggestions for future content or shows let me know!

Thanks again and all the best!

Aiden's Pre-shoot Text Interview

We are kicking off season 15 by shooting with many new faces, we are shooting with semi-semi-profressinal footballer and model Aiden on 10th Feb.





Here is his interview that he kindly agreed to take part in before this shoot.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself? 

I am a down to earth, energetic person that doesn’t take themselves too seriously! Although can be professional and extremely competitive when I need to be, as I am a semi-professional footballer and a full time model.



What other modelling or appearance jobs have you done? 

I have done a variety of different clothing brands but most recently doing shoots for ASOS marketplace! Along with this I have done underwear, catwalk, bridal and location shoots.



Why did you want to appear on the website and show? 

When I got approached it looked like lots of fun and something I would love to do!!



Why do you think people would like to see you on the show? 

Because I am a normal down to earth lad, that just happens to be a footballer and a model!! So they wouldn’t be getting anyone stuck up themselves, and would be getting somebody who can have a laugh and doesn’t mind being laughed at!!



There is a part in the shoot where we reveal if you have been voted into the Gunge Tank via the viewers in a vote. Why do you think people would vote you into the Gunge Tank? 

Because they would want to mess my hair up!! and maybe want to see me with my top off (I don’t know haha)



Why should we not Gunge you? 

I think you should!



Any reason why we should gunge you? 

Because I’ve always wanted to be gunged since watching get your own back from a young age!



Do you remember any messy shows from your past. Such as TV shows? 
I fondly remember Get Your Own back, Fun House and loved Noel's Gunge Tanks so cannot wait to be on the Splat! Show.




If you could see anyone in the Gunge Tank who would it be and why? 

My best mate dan!! Because it would be hilarious and he would probably end up falling over or something!! Or David Beckham as he is my hero haha



If you could pick the colour of the Gunge in a game what would it be and why? 

RED – for Manchester United

Stay tuned to Splat! HQ, our social channels and here on the blog for all the latest from season 15 and beyond.

A Rough Patch - An Update

Hey Guys,

I want to give you all an update regarding the Matt and David shoots that were due to film this past week. Both of the models pulled out of their shoots. David gave us two days notice and Matt only gave us a HOUR notice before being a no show.

After this disaster, things need to change. The pre-shoots are now dead in their current form. We cannot keep letting viewers who order the pre-shoots down. We placed too much faith and trust in the models to keep to their side of the deal. The pre-shoots are essential for us since they help us fund the shoots. So what are we going to do?

The pre-shoots will change into special videos that will be released and available for a limited time. The difference here is that they will be filmed and ready to go before any viewer places an order. They will also get the videos straight away. In many ways you could argue that this is what we should of been doing anyway. This also ensures viewers know exactly what they are buying into. The downside for us on a business side is that we will have to bear the costs of the shoots upfront but that's a price worth taking if it protects the viewers from situations like the Matt and David shoots.

The Gunge Tank votes will also change too. Here the model will change from pay to vote to free to vote. This means everyone can vote. As no money is being taken at this stage, if a model drops out we can reset the vote and add a replacement if time permits. The video of the vote result including the Gunge Tank Escape will then be available to buy on the site for a limited time. This also means that if the model you voted for does not get Gunged in the vote or the escape then you have the choice to buy or not.

We hope these changes will protect the viewers from what has happened this past week and we hope these changes work out better for us too.

I want to thank everyone who has placed a pre-shoot and Gunge Tank vote for Matt and David for being so understanding as we deal with the fallout from their lack of professionalism.

We will be contacting all pre-shoot and Gunge Tank vote viewers today.

Also we will be updating the site later tonight with the first new Gunge Tank vote!

Thank you,

Interview with Pete Prt 2

Here is the second and final part of the interview with Pete that took place towards the end of season 14 production.

So you have nearly finished the year and season 14 of the show. What are you feeling at this moment?

"I am feeling pretty happy. It's no secret that I have found this season and year tough. I have been very vocal about how I have been feeling recently on Twitter. Twitter is a great tool but sometimes I do rant on there about stuff that I should not say. Some people who are fans of the site and who are close friends sometimes message me to stop posting my thoughts on there but I just can't help it sometimes. I feel it's only right that people who follow the show understand how I am feeling sometimes. Thankfully the feedback from these messages has always been positive. But yes, I am feeling pretty happy. We have about three shoots to go before we wrap up season 14 production"

You have said you are taking a short break from filming. Why is this and how long is the break?

"Yeah, I announced that I would be taking a break from filming new material for a while because I needed a break. A break from shooting, and by the time this interview is published I am probably about to start season 15 production. I plan to take November and December off shooting new material. But we will have new releases coming out while I am on the break so there won't be a pause in new releases. But basically I just needed a break and work on other things in my life. Of course I am still working on the site and the other business side of things, that does not stop. I am just taking a break from the most intensive part. The shoots"

What do you enjoy the most about the shoots?

"It's crazy to say this, because quite frankly I am a shy guy, but I guess it's meeting a new model. When we cast a model we really don't know if they are going to be any good until they turn up at HQ and start shooting. It is a thill to meet someone who knows what they are going to be doing, turn up and then have a good time. Thankfully every model I have worked with so far has been great. I would say David Lundy from this year was a total surprise for me. His profile was very model like and I was expecting him to have this massive ego, but as it turned out, he is the nicest guy you could ever want to meet and he loved getting Gunged! So much so he is coming back in season 15 and I cannot wait!"

What do you enjoy the least about the shoots?

"I think anyone who knows me and the site already knows the answer to this, the clean ups. Enough said really"

What can we look forward to next year?

"Well I have some big plans but I don't want to reveal them yet. I am always getting told off by people for saying something and then not doing it, so I think I will just let people wait and see. It will be worth the wait and the reveals should be more exciting too!"
