ABC announce premiere date for seventh season of You Can’t Ask That – with more awkward questions for porn stars, bogans, gay men and more

Popular ABC series You Can’t Ask That will return for season seven on May 25.

Famously provocative, the unique reality show features participants answering very personal questions about their lives submitted anonymously by viewers.

The new trailer offers a teaser for the upcoming season and features self-proclaimed bogans, porn stars, models and more.

Episode one will feature Dylan Voller, reports Variety Australia. 

Voller, now an adult, was involved in juvenile dentition at age 11 and in 2016 footage of him tied to a chair appeared in ABC’s Four Corners program.

The program created controversy and a Royal Commission was formed under the Turnbull government in order to investigate conditions in child protection and detention centres in the Northern Territory.

You Can’t Ask That has been an award-winning success for the ABC and producers.

In 2017 it won three United Nations Media Awards including one for the Promotion of Empowerment of Older People and another for Promotion of Disability rights.

A US version of the format is on its way, after rights were sold in 2020, and Variety reports there will be both English and Spanish language versions produced.

Meanwhile, there are versions of the show in Israel, Belgium, the Netherlands and Canada.

More than 10,000 questions were submitted for the past six seasons of You Can’t Ask That, and 427 Australians have ‘bravely taken a seat to answer those questions, helping us understand their lives’, said an ABC spokesperson. 

The show’s director, Kirk Docker, added: ‘People often ask if we make the questions up ourselves, but honestly we could never be that clever. The input from the public is what makes this show.

‘The blunter and more offensive the question, the more fun people have answering them. Because they’ve generally heard them all before, but it’s rare they get to answer them on their own terms.’

All episodes of You Can’t Ask That will appear on streaming platform iView from May 25 and screen weekly Wednesday’s at 9pm on ABC free-to-air.
