& # 39; He thought I was a cheeky dick! & # 39; Kyle Sandilands of KIIS FM reveals how the husband of Australian Survivor star Janine Allis Jeff helped him with co-host Jackie Henderson
The duo has ruled over the airwaves on Australian radio for almost two decades.
And it seems that Kyle Sandilands, 48, and Jackie Henderson, 44, owe their first pair to Jeff Allis, the husband of the Australian Survivor star and Boost Juice founder Janine.
During an interview about her Survivor ax on Wednesday, Kyle told Janine: & I told everyone before you came that your husband is the reason that Jackie and I are together. & # 39;
Janine & # 39; s husband Jeff Allis is a former programming head at Southern Cross Austereo – a collection of 78 radio stations led by Triple M and Hit Networks.
& # 39; He met me in Brisbane (in 2000) and thought: "What a cheeky pr *** this guy is", & # 39; Kyle remembered.
Kyle then said and imitated Jeff: & I am moving him to Sydney to work with Jackie! & # 39;

The radioster then examined the Boost Juice founder to see if she had anything to do with his decision making process.
Janine said her husband has always had a creepy gift because he saw raw talent and noticed it.
& # 39; Did he ever say to you: & # 39; I have met the most talented male broadcaster in the history of Australia & # 39 ;? Did he say that? & # 39; Kyle asked boldly.
Janine stroked his ego and answered: & # 39; No, what he did say is that he has found someone who could be great in the radio world. & # 39;

The jury voted: Janine left Australian Survivor this week
Nineteen years later the radio duo simply cannot be stopped and it rules the number one breakfast show in the country.
& # 39; Why are you two working? & # 39; Janine asked about the successful collaboration between Kyle and Jackie.
& # 39; Tolerance, & # 39; Kyle joked before adding: & # 39; The real answer from me is that we respect each other and I never feel like I am competing with her. & # 39;
