Mix 102.3′s breakfast team of Jodie & Soda today launched Grid Guys for the Clipsal 500 race.
The move is in response to SA Tourism Minister Leon Bignell calling for the end of Grid Girls following this year’s event.
Mr Bignell has made the call after he was questioned in Parliament about why Grid Girls were ‘celebrated’ at the Clipsal 500, despite it being against the fundamental aims of the government’s Body Image SA project, being led by the Women’s Information Service.
The radio breakfast duo have been searching high and low for Adelaide’s “Typical Aussie Blokes” to be Jodie and Soda’s Grid Guys, and they hit the track this morning to prove “Guys can Grid”.
Jodie: “It’s like the Berlin Wall of cleavage is finally coming tumbling down.”
Soda: “We don’t want to objectify these blokes, we don’t want to make them pieces of meat. We want to celebrate your everyday man.”
