Will Connolly, better known as Egg Boy, has become an overnight sensation after cracking an egg on Senator Fraser Anning’s head. His worldwide fame prompted the bookies to offer interesting bets, including a bet on Egg Boy to be named Australian of the Year.
Online sportsbook news in New Zealand have shot Egg Boy to fame after egging Senator Fraser Anning. Connolly cracked the egg in protest to senator’s statement that blamed immigration for the Christchurch terror attack. In mere hours after the incident, support has flooded in for Connolly. Many are saying Egg Boy needs to be given an accolade for his actions. Some have even called Egg Boy to be named Australian of the Year.
Egg Boy’s face has been already printed on T-shirts. He has also been honoured with a mural in one of Melbourne’s most iconic laneways. Musicians have offered the teen free lifetime tickets. The Egg Boy has been even extended five-star treatment in Turkey and lifetime free drinks when he is old enough in Canada and Wales.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for Egg Boy’s legal fees. More than $80,000 have been raised so far, with more than 3350 people donating. The Egg Boy says he will give the money to the victims of the New Zealand mosque shooting.
People have nominated Egg Boy for Australian of the Year
More than 400,000 people are now following Connolly’s Instagram account. #Eggboy was the number one trending in Egypt on March 16 and 17. Connolly has become a social media hero and many have unofficially appointed him as the next Australian of the Year. Some have posted screenshots of nominations filled out for Connolly. Newshub contacted the organizers of Australian of the Year, but they declined to comment.
Calling Connolly to be given the accolade is just a gesture of support. However, 22BET Sportsbook decided to offer 51 odds for Egg Boy to be named Australian of the Year. The award is given annually to highly respected Australians. In 2019, Dr. Harris and Dr. Challen were named Australians of the Year for their heroic efforts in the Thai cave rescue mission.
Nobel Prize and sponsorship deal for the Egg Boy
Many people on social media called the Egg Boy to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. Of course, that will not happen, but online sportsbook sites in New Zealand are offering 501 odds. The bookies are also offering 17 odds for Egg Boy to join Home & Away and Neighbours series as a guest.
Another interesting bet available at 22BET Sportsbook is for the Egg Boy (2.5) to sign an endorsement or Sponsorship Deal with an Egg Company. In order to see all special bets on Egg Boy, just check our review about 22Bet Sportsbook.
