EARLIER: Bundaberg woman Jacinta Robinson will showcase her skill and finesse on the mini-golf course when she competes in Channel 7's Holey Moley Australia on Monday.
The extreme mini golf competition combines comedy and sport as competitors battle for supremacy on insane, supersized mini-golf holes.
The ultimate winner of each episode is then booked for a spot in the grand final where they compete for the chance to win $100,000.
Jacinta said the opportunity to take part in the competition had been a dream come true.
“I first heard about Holey Moley through Instagram and thought it would be a fantastic thing to get involved in,” she said.
“I am in the fitness industry and wanted to participate in the competition not only for my clients, but also to show Australia that if you believe in yourself and have a good mindset, you can overcome the challenges that lay ahead of you.”
While Jacinta said she wasn't the most professional of golfers, she had always loved to dabble in a game or two of mini golf with her partner Alyse Ortt.
“Mini golf is definitely something fun that Alyse and I like to do together,” she said.
“This competition just takes the game to a whole other level, it is pretty epic.”
Jacinta shows talent in Holey Moley
While currently living in Brisbane and working on her dream career in fitness, Jacinta said she also had strong ties to Bundaberg.
Born and raised in the region, Jacinta went to Shalom College and worked as a hairdresser for Mode while her parents still own and operate Gainsite Plumbing and Gas.
She said she had plenty of support from her loved ones during the filming of Holey Moley Australia and felt proud to showcase her strength, ability and her journey into health and fitness on the show.
“I used to be overweight and when I lost that weight, I really learnt some great lessons that I now try to teach other people,” she said.
“It's all about being in a good mindset, eating great, wholesome foods and being fearless.”
Jacinta said she wanted to use her platform on the program to show others how to eliminate the fear of failure and destroy self-doubt, something she also emulates through her fitness business.
“I love to push the mindset of being fearless, of going forward to live the best life possible,” she said.
“I am a strong woman and I am also a vegan.
“I think there is a preconception out there that vegans are not strong but that is definitely not the case and I am looking forward to showing that.”
Airing on Monday night, Jacinta said her episode would be full of fun and plenty of laughs but whether she gets all the way to the end, she said viewers will have to watch to find out!
“This is the most fun challenge I have ever been part of,” she said.
“All I can say is getting ready for a good time!”
