The countdown continues for Ja’mie King: Private School Girl, which premieres on ABC1 on Wednesday October 23, 9pm. Chris Lilley’s hyped new show picks up on J’amie King’s life where Summer Heights High left off; after a traumatic gap year spent in a public school, she’s been returned to her spiritual home — Hilford Girls Grammar School — to complete year 12.
The full trailer dropped at the end of last week. It looks superb.
What we know so far is that Ja’mie has a new crush (a younger man), a new chant (“Tits. Out. For-the-boys/Tits-out-for-the-boys“), and — as highlighted in a page of the audition script that was leaked on Instagram — a new word: “quiche”.
Over the weekend, the Sunday Telegraph‘s style lift-out, Sunday Style, ran a full-page profile on Ja’mie King. The interview isn’t available online unless you get the iPad app, but here are some of the best bits.
On Being In Year 12:
“I’ve made a lot of changes around the school: the coffee machine for prefects only, no phones during school hours (except prefects) and no Asians allowed on the oval at lunch.”
On Social Media:
“Every now and then I post a tit photo on my Facebook and leave it up for 24 hours to create a buzz.”
On Sponsoring Sudanese Children:
“I’ve totes got over that. I’m more into raising money for homeless people these days. There’s SO many really hot young homeless guys in Sydney.”
“Everyone’s going on about twerking, but I actually invented it about two years ago. Seriously, ask anyone at my school. I did it in an assembly presentation during NAIDOC Week and it spread from there.”
“I’ve been modelling since I was two, so I”ve always got a LOT of male attention. I hooked up with another kid when I was four when I did this Osh Kosh B’Gosh catalogue shoot. We just macked on between shots.”
“When I get into clubs (’cause I’ve got a fake ID and I look older), I usually rock a bandage dress. Like a really tight, expensive designer one. One that you have to pull down all the time so that it draws attention to your arse.”
“There’s this app called Asian Persuasian that turns you into an Asian person. I look like a REALLY hot Asian when you do me.”
