WATCH: Sam Mac on Home and Away

Sam appeared on the soapie last night as himself to receive a check for mental health at a fundraiser.

Clearly proud of his work on the show, he uploaded his cameo onto his Instagram, and in the process, he couldn’t help but rib Kochie for his 2007 appearance.

He wrote, “Here it is. The deluxe collector’s edition box set of all 47 words I said on @homeandaway. Not that it’s a competition, but it’s 45 more words than Kochie’s 2007 cameo 🤷🏽‍♂️ #47Words.”

In the comment section of his post, a slew of fans praised the presenter for his work.

One fan wrote, “I hear they’re looking for a new James Bond 👀,” and another shared, “Loved seeing you on home and away!!”

Ahead of Sam’s turn on the show, a clip of Kochie at the Summer Bay surf club drinking a beer and saying the line, “yeah, sure,” resurfaced.

Poking fun at the Sunrise host’s very brief appearance, Sam said of the 65-year-old’s Summer Bay debut, “That’s it. That is literally it. All of two words.”

Dishing on some behind-the-scenes secrets, Kochie revealed that producers told him to “say watermelon, watermelon, watermelon in the background because you’re not allowed to make a noise when you’re talking.”

It seems like Sam had the best time on set, and he shared a picture of him posing with legend Ray Meagher with some of his personal merch.

However, it doesn’t seem like Ray was too impressed, not that it bothered the weatherman.

My @homeandaway episode is on TONIGHT 🏖 I’m not sure Alf is onboard with my line of commemorative “Sam Mac-chandise” 🤷🏽‍♂️ He threatened legal action 😬 #SummerBae,” he captioned the picture featuring his hilarious “Summer Bae” shirt.

Sam’s co-star for the day James Stewart rang in his appearance on Instagram.
He shared a picture from the Summer Bay beach with the weatherman and Ray, and he captioned the snap, “Tune in tonight to see the Accidental Weatherman himself @sammacinsta debut on Home and Away!!.”
