20 to One (known as 20 to 1 before 2016) is an Australian television series on the Nine Network from 2005 to 2011, hosted by Bert Newton that counts down an undefined "top 20" of elements or events of popular culture, such as films, songs, sporting scandals. Previously the show was hosted by Bud Tingwell and narrated by David Reyne; the format mixes archival footage of the listed events with comments from various Australian celebrities.

The series was rebooted by the Nine Network, which returned with its eleventh season on 31 May 2016 with new hosts, Australian radio hosts Fitzy & Wippa.[1][2][3] In 2017, the show was hosted by Erin Molan and Dave Thornton;[4][5] the twelfth season began airing on 6 June 2017.

In 2019, the show will return for its thirteenth season and be hosted by Erin Molan and Nick Cody.

Format[edit]

Each episode counts down the "top twenty" events following a particular theme, from position 20 down to number 1. Media clips depicting the event are played as the host provides background information of the entry; this is followed by clips of Australian based "celebrities" providing judgment on the clip or event.

Controversy[edit]

During the segment aired on 19 June 2019, co-host Erin Molan stated that the South Korean boy band BTS was "so popular it could heal the rift between North and South Korea."[6] She also mentioned the band's success in the United States, even though "only one band member actually speaks English."[6] Comedian Jimmy Carr jokingly compared the band's international success to the explosion of a nuclear bomb, saying: "When I first heard something Korean had exploded in America, I got worried. So I guess, it could've been worse – but not much worse."[7] Subsequently, the hashtags #channel9apologize and #channel9racist started trending as fans of the band demanded an apology from Carr and Channel 9;[8] the official BTS Australia Twitter account wrote: "This is unfair and presenting inaccurate information. You disregarded their achievements, and instead let your xenophobic, racist mindsets be biased instead. We want an apology."[8] On 20 June 2019, Channel 9 issued an apology, writing: "We apologize to any who may have been offended by last night's episode."[9]
