CNBC anchor Oriel Morrison has swallowed her national pride, donning an All Blacks rugby union kit and clutching an inflatable Kiwi on air after losing a highly-public bet with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key.
And Key enjoyed his victory, after the All Blacks thrashed Australia's Wallabies 41-13 on Saturday night in Auckland to retain the coveted Bledisloe Cup for the 13th straight year.
Speaking to Morrison on CNBC on Monday, Key joked: "There was a bit of light relief when I was there watching the boys thump Australia. It was a thumping, eh?"
Admitting defeat, Morrison, a Singapore-based Aussie, conceded: "It was a thumping, I do have to agree with you. I was watching that game very closely."
The bet began on August 7 when, during an interview, Morrison challenged Key to wear an Australian rugby jersey if the Wallabies beat NZ in a Bledisoloe cup game in Sydney on August 8. The Aussies won and Key complied with a photograph of himself in a Wallabies jersey, albeit with the top largely hidden by a Singapore scarf in honor of the city-state's 50th birthday.
He then chose to double down, committing to wear not only an Australian jersey but also a hat and scarf if the All Blacks did not redeem themselves as expected at Eden Park, NZ's rugby union HQ, on Saturday.
Key did improve his own odds, however, with a mid-week text to All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, reminding McCaw that his PM looked a whole lot better in black.
As for Morrison, she said she still thought Key looked "particularly good in green and gold."
