Generous Kiwis band together to raise money for Rodney’s new teeth
A 9 in 10 contestant is getting a second chance at buying some new teeth after missing out on the win this morning.
Rodney Winitana played 9 in 10 on The AM Show this morning, but failed to win the $10,000 Farmers shopping spree prize.
As he said goodbye, he mentioned he would have liked a new set of teeth.
Listeners and viewers immediately began asking where they could donate to help, so The AM Show has set up a Givealittle page to help him get his denture work.
Mr Winitana is one of the AM Show's biggest fans, he's turned up to try and play 9 in 10 in Levin, Foxton, and Palmerston North.
He finally got his chance in Feilding on Thursday morning.
"It's good to be on here Duncan I'm a big fan, love you guys. Hey Mark you're a legend, and Amanda you're a rose between two thorns," he said to the AM Show hosts.
After he failed to name nine fizzy drinks in ten seconds, he looked disappointed but remained positive.
"I've had my chance, I've followed you guys all around the motu and I've really enjoyed it," he said.
"I would have swapped the ten grand for some teeth."
