Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald co-hosted The Project Tuesday night and revealed that he had a very scary Scientology encounter.
He explained that he was holidaying in Los Angeles 12 years ago just before he was to have a knee reconstruction. He happened to be a big fan of actress Jenna Elfman who he went up and asked for a photo with.
“I went to Santa Monica Boulevard and I saw Jenna Elfman there … and I was a massive fan so I went up and asked for a photo,” he said.
Ryan said he explained to her that he was about to undergo a knee reconstruction — and she claimed she could “fix it”.
“And she goes, ‘Where are you from?’ And I said, ‘I’m from Adelaide,’ and she said, ‘I’ve got a contact for you, its called the purification process and it will fix all your problems.’”
He says they swapped details and she gave him a contact for when he returned to Adelaide.
“I thought I was going to see a doctor or a physio and I rocked up and it was the Church of Scientology,” he said.
“A guy brought me in and there were all these people there. And he said, ‘Welcome, we’ve been waiting for you’. He took me down into this dark room to watch this video of a young man who got injured and how he went to Scientology and got his way out of it. But when they stopped the video it was completely black. And I’m down in this basement and I’m just waiting for a baseball bat to hit me in the back of the head. And I was freaking out … I gave them a fake number and address and I got out of there as quick as I could.”
