‘Most terrifying scene in history’: Beauty and the Geek fans cringe as Mitchell Berryman horrifies host Sophie Monk with creepy ‘Tunnel of Terror’ Willy Wonka monologue










On Monday’s episode of Beauty and the Geek, Mitchell Berryman left host Sophie Monk stunned when he delivered a creepy monologue. 

The geeks and beauties mingled at a mixer where they dressed up as their favourite literary characters. 

Mitch, 28, opted for Willy Wonka, the protagonist of the 1964 novel children’s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by British author Roald Dahl.

The aspiring screenwriter from Victoria dressed up in a costume inspired by the one worn by actor Gene Wilder, who played Willy Wonka in the 1971 American musical, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. 

He even delivered the infamous ‘Tunnel of Terror’ monologue, during which visitors to the chocolate factory are trapped on a runaway boat while Willy Wonka delivers a mad rant. 

Using a terrifying voice inspired by the character, Mitch intoned in part: ‘Yes, the danger must be growing. For the rowers keep on rowing. And they’re certainly not showing. Any signs that they are slowing’.
