Dr Frankenstein is back and he's blowing things up again


12 days ago

After a successful first season of the #MicrowaveOlympics, 947 renewed the show and kicked off the second season on 4 March 2019.

The popular show sees the return of Dr Frankenstein, the face of the popular show.

The #MicrowaveOlympics sees various items being heated up in a microwave, asking Joburgers to guess the time it takes for the item to explode.

Last year saw a massive amount of interest across the city. If you missed it, here's what happened.

If you successfully guess the time it takes for the item to explode you could win yourself four tickets to Huawei Joburg Day in the Park.

So, all we have is some really hot grape juice. No explosions for Monday, but maybe on Tuesday? You'll need to tune in and watch the live stream on our Facebook page.

TUESDAY

Tuesday saw the good Doc trying to blow up a tube of toothpaste. How long would it take this time? Would we get an explosion?

Unfortunately, the toothpaste didn't explode. At least we know that our mouths are safer than we thought. We were really hoping for an explosion but there's still time.

Tune in on Wednesday morning to find out what the team will be blowing up next!

WEDNESDAY

Wednesday, we decided to light things up and put a light bulb in the microwave.

The doctor's tools

It was quite a spectacle, so watch the video below and enjoy!

The aftermath

It didn't explode, but it definitely melted. Will we have more success in blowing something up tomorrow?

We'll have to tune in to find out.

THURSDAY

Thursday brought about a whole new can of challenges...

What happens when you put a closed can of baked beans in the microwave? We don't know, which is why the 947 Breakfast Club tried it out.

Here's what happened...

Why? Why won't anything blow up?! Even Frankie was frustrated and threw the tin on the ground...

We have one day left, so let's hope that Friday will be our lucky day!

FRIDAY

This one definitely made up for the whole week! What happens when you put a can of deodorant in the microwave?

We anticipated that things could get a bit intense, so we called in our friends at Liquid Bullet to provide us with some serious protective gear! Thank you so much, team! Find out more about their incredible products and services.

Please, please do not try this at home!

Liquid Bullet hooked us up!

We called in some assistance. Thanks, Zweli.

Now, this is a massive way to wrap up the #947MicrowaveOlympics!

We even had parents bring their kids through to watch...
Zweli, from the 947 Night Show, came through to provide Dr Frankenstein some assistance.

The aftermath

We'll see you again next time for the third season of the #947MicrowaveOlympics!

They’re full of laughs, loud and impossible not to love. In fact, you’re going to be obsessed with them.
