In a nationwide survey to find Australia’s Daggiest Dad, Take 5 magazine asked its readers to name the fathers who they thought would most embarrass their kids.

Our PM was named in 31% of the 4360 votes cast, beating out David Koch from Sunrise who came in second place with 17%. And in third was Shane Warne on 15%.

Take 5 editor Paul Merrill gave his thoughts on the unsurprising result. 

“The PM hasn’t topped many polls recently, and I doubt he’ll be too pleased with being first in this one.  He may be our elected leader, but that doesn’t means he doesn’t embarrass himself with all his gaffes, not to mention the budgie smugglers and lycra cycling pants.”

Here are Australia’s top 10 daggiest dads:

1. Tony Abbott (31%)

2. David Koch (17%)

3. Shane Warne (15%)

4. Kevin Rudd (9%)

5. Eddie McGuire (7.5%)

6. Karl Stefanovic (7%)

7. Scott Cam (6%)

8. Gary Mehigan (4%)

9. Matty Johns (2%)

10. Bert Newton (1.5%)

Full details of the survey are in this week’s Take 5 magazine, out today.
