The mesh in Logies means that Karl Stefanovic can attend the ceremony (even if Channel Nine did not want him there) and that he may even bring his wife Jasmine Yarbrough
Karl Stefanovic is not on the Channel Nine RSVP list for the Guest, but he will nevertheless attend the ceremony on the Gold Coast this Sunday – with a guest in tow.
The reason for this unusual setup is that of Nine no need invite Karl, because he already has an & # 39; invitation for life & # 39; received as a former Gold Logie recipient.
The & # 39; loophole & # 39; van Logies has been known in the industry for years, but is not generally known to the public.
No wonder he laughs! Karl Stefanovic is not on the RSVP list of Channel Nine for the Guest, but he will nevertheless attend the ceremony on the Gold Coast this Sunday, with a guest in tow
The & # 39; lifetime Logies invite & # 39; was explained earlier this week by former Studio 10 boss Rob McKnight at the TV Blackbox podcast.
He said: & # 39; Karl is going to the Logies. Every previous Gold Logie winner can go to the Logies and bring a date … they are all invited to go by default. & # 39;
In 2011, Karl won the Golden Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian television.

McKnight further explained that when he was the executive producer of Studio 10, he didn't need & # 39; Denise (Drysdale) as a guest & # 39; because they & # 39; automatically & # 39; was invited after he had won the Gold Logie twice.
& # 39; That's a tradition the Logies have observed (without exception), he added. & # 39; If you have won a Golden Log, you can go until the day you die. & # 39;
McKnight added that there is one catch: Gold Logie cardholders still have to pay for their own accommodation and flights to the ceremony.
Karl & # 39; s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn confirmed McKnight & # 39; s account on Thursday and told The Daily Telegraph that the former host of Today & # 39; two tickets for life & # 39; has.
This lifelong invitation allows Karl to bring a plus-one to the Logies this year, but it is believed that his new wife Jasmine Yarbrough will not be present.
She is currently in Paris with her business partner Tamara Ingham, where they present their Mara & Mine shoe range to fashion buyers.
For a while it was unclear whether Karl would attend the Logies after being released from the Today show on December 19 due to sharply falling ratings.
However, Channel Nine boss Hugh Marks has since confirmed that he will be there.
