“If we’ve evolved from monkeys, then why haven’t those ones evolved?” Warne asks in a clip from tonight’s episode, prompting a half-hearted “Yeah …” from fellow contestant Bonnie Lythgoe. “Cos I’m saying: Aliens. We started from aliens,” Warne continues. “Look at those pyramids, Bonnie. You couldn’t do ‘em. You couldn’t pull those huge bits of brick and make it perfectly symmetrical … couldn’t do it.
So who did it?” “Has to be from another world, has to be,” says Lythgoe, apparently warming to the idea that Warne is the Fox Mulder of the cricketing world. “Whatever planet they’re on out there, they decided that they were gonna start some more life here on earth and study us,” Warne states, as if this were a proven fact ( via news.com.au ).
“Scientifically, we have so many similarities to monkeys, so I don’t know … yeah,” Lythgoe offers, leading Warne to deliver his piece de resistance: “Maybe they turned a few monkeys into humans and said ‘Yeah, it works’.”
