(6/8/2014)

Bali-based surfing instructor Todd Gisondi, who has earned his 15-minutes of fame - and then some, via his cameo appearance on the Channel Seven series "What Really Happens in Bali" where he boasts he has bedded as many as 100 women tourist during his short stay on the island.

Intended or not, he has also earned a great deal of animosity from many fellow Australian who have labeled him a “bogan” - a pejorative term that in other locales might be “hick, hillbilly” or “country bumpkin.”

A Facebook page “Todd Gisondi is a dickhead” – where an international audience launches vitriolic attacks on the dreadlocked surfer has surpassed 7,000 “likes” only a few days after its launch.

Locally, back in Bali, Gisondi is earning a fast-growing list of detractors.

According to Tribun-Bali.com, the rector of the Mahendradata University in Bali, Dr. Shri I Gusti Ngurah Wedakarna, is calling on the government to express its strong displeasure both the Channel Seven and to Todd Gisondi. Wedekarna, who is also running for the legislature, grants the Australian that sexual practices is largely a private concern but, at the same time, finds Gisondi’s public utterances and Channel Seven’s desire to broadcast them  both vulgar and detrimental to Bali’s reputation.

“As a Balinese I criticize the actions of the ‘tourist’ because his actions can damage the image of Bali and Indonesian as a whole,” said Wedekarna. He went on the say that given Bali’s record of promoting itself as a cultural and spiritual destination, Gisondi and Channel Seven must be asked their underlying motives for their actions. The educator went on to suggest that Gisondi may have been paid by Channel Seven to make his shocking pronouncements. Adding: “The government must take steps and protest to the television station that broadcasted Todd’s statement or complain directly to Todd in Bali.”

Continuing, Wedekarna said: “What he did with 100 women is a basically a private matter and within his rights. The fact that he has made these statement publicly via the mass media has made his actions a matter of public  record and public concern.”

ASITA Calls for Gisondi’s Deportation

The chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Association of Tour and Travel Agents, I Ketut Ardana, warned: “Don’t let the actions of a single individual about his experiences in Bali influence the world. I believe he (Gisondi) is mentally ill and this is a case we (in Bali) need to handle it.”

Ardana said the fact that the Australian market remains the top source of foreign visitors and the strange behavior of the sex-addicted Todd Gisondi suggest it would be best to deport the young Australian back to his home country.

Ardana said Bali is not a sex-destination and foreigners seeking to make it once would do better to holiday elsewhere.

I Made Sukadana, the chairman of the Bali Guide Association (HPI-Bali), is concerned that Gisondi may also be spreading disease and seeking sexual liaisons with local women.
