I'm so glad you asked this. It's been bugging me for a couple of years now.

I googled it a while back and got answers such as "It's a military term meaning in your face

It's Boo /Yeah not BooYay

It's the highest number box and they had to have a catch phrase WTF

I even asked my Aussie friends. Replies were Why do you watch that shite Who cares - AoK is a knob, Don't know, don't care and various other answers of that ilk- all really helpful girls NOT.........

So I still don't know.

Anyway my other question is how do they choose the box opener? And why do some pickers have 4 friends opening the boxes and some only 1? Why would you go on a show just to open a box with a tiny chance of getting $500 and not having a chance to pick a box the next day like they do in the UK?

I do think it's better than the UK version though (that is really utter crap).

Or consulting the wiki you get two additional spellings:

It means oh for gods sake, get a grip, turn the TV off and go and do something more interesting instead. You know how the Australians like to shorten everything
