For anyone that has even a minor addiction to the TV series Lost, you'll know that the final episode airs in Australia on Channel 7 at 8.30pm, Wednesday 26th May. It aired yesterday all over the globe but if you're a well behaved Aussie you'll wait right?
In the lead up to the final episode, Nova Top Ten's Kerley, Michelle and Smallzy have found what may be Australia's biggest Lost fan. Meet Tom Ragg. He'll appear on the Top Ten show tonight to talk all things Lost. In the meantime, here's a few of the "credentials" that make him the biggest Aussie Lost fan out there - other than looking a hell of a lot like Jeremy Davies (Daniel Faraday)... and now that you mention it, Jorge Garcia (Hurley).
So here you have it - Tom Ragg's Lost journey in a nutshell.
- In 2006, the 26-year-old from Sydney started a Lost fan blog under the name The Lost Ninja. It is now one of the most popular official Lost blogs (yep, internationally).
- Tom travelled to Hawaii twice to stalk the Lost stars (sorry, for set visits and premiere parties) and met most of the cast.
- He has swapped words during interviews with cast members such as Dominic Monaghan, Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox and knows damn near everything about them.
- The Lost Ninja and Yahoo!7 ran the alternate reality game The Lost Experience between Seasons 2 and 3. Fans were sent on scavenger hunts, with secret clues and received chocolate bars from the series. Want to bet they didn't eat them?
- Tom studied quantum physics in his spare time in a bid to better understand the Lost theories and clues, and explain them in layman's terms on his blog.
- He also deciphered the hieroglyphics on Ben's secret door in Season 4 (if you understand what that sentence means you're doing better than us).
So, is Ragg really Australia's most devoted and knowledgeable Lost fan or do you know someone with an even bigger obsession?
NovaFM's Kerley, Michelle and Smallzy will chat to him on tonight's show to test his knowledge and find out.
The final episode of Lost will hit our TV screens on Seven - Wednesday May 26 from 8.30pm
