The 25-year-old was the first guest of the year on TV personality Andy Lee’s famous ‘Guess Whom?’ miniseries, where Andy and tennis stars competing in the Australian Open play their own celebrity-heads-style game.
Andy had to guess the celebrity on Nick’s card, which was Donald Trump. Once they began the game, a series of questions got the pair talking about the prospects of being in an elevator with the former US president.
“Would I hate to be stuck in an elevator with that person?” Andy asked, to which Nick replied, “No”.
“OK, so I’d like to be in an elevator with that person,” the TV presenter thought out loud.
Nick then clarified, “Oh, I don’t know if you’d like to be. It would be one of your favourite experiences of your life”.
It looks like the sports star misjudged Andy’s taste in elevator companions, because he immediately crossed out Trump as a guess, saying, “Umm, well, I wouldn’t want to be in there with Donald Trump”.
When Nick eventually revealed Trump’s face was on his card, Andy giggled in disbelief.
“You want to be stuck in an elevator with Donald Trump?” he asked.
“I said it would be a crazy experience,” Nick said with a laugh.
Nick made headlines in 2017 when he wore a “Fuck Donald Trump” T-shirt at a press conference in Sydney.
The T-shirt featured Trump’s face with devil horns added. When asked about the clothing, Nick told media at the time, “It’s pretty explanatory”.
The tennis star will compete against France’s Ugo Umbert for a Round 2 match on Wednesday night at the Australian Open.
