Known widely for his pranks and notorious videos on YouTube and Instagram, local YouTuber turned TV Presenter, Mark O’dea is no stranger to the Malaysian entertainment circle. Having been featured on the cover of Malaysia Men’s Health Magazine in May 2015, the 30-year-old Mark has a large Instagram following of 140k followers and he also believes in equal religious rights in Malaysia — constantly preaching about it on his social media pages and YouTube channel.
Recently, he has announced a rather shocking news on his Instagram page — causing netizens to speculate the nature of this announcement. According to his latest Instagram post, it seems as though he’s been selected to be part of Season 19 of BBC’s Dragon’s Den. His caption reads, “Wish me luck guys! Next stop BBC – Dragons Den UK!I still can’t believe they are actually letting a guy pitch an idea with a Half Boiled Egg Maker…But this is a product that everyone in the UK needs in their homes..so it’s time to make that happen.”

Before we delve further into this, let’s have a further look into this show. BBC’s “Dragon Den” is a TV program where budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are willing to invest their own cash. Sounds surreal, right?
Well, by the looks of it, this might be a prank by the famous prankster himself!
Remember the prank he pulled regarding Justin Bieber loving his parody of Yummy and flew him all the way to Los Angeles? At first, he stated that his latest video featuring popular childhood snack Mamee Monster got Justin Bieber’s attention. Well, that ended up with him saying that it was a prank all along. This was indeed frustrating! You can read the full news, here.
Nevertheless, as much as we hope that this would not be a prank, it’s really difficult to believe his words. If he did indeed end up in Dragon’s Den, well, congratulations! This is an amazing piece of news. But, let’s not put our hopes up too high, as it might be a well-devised prank too due to it’s skeptical nature.
