Unemployed Centrelink contestant Trevor Milligan has successfully scraped through the first round of Newstart allowance qualifications.

Several obstacles were deliberately erected in Milligan’s path to prevent him from persisting with his challenge, but he was able to endure the difficulties through sheer determination.

“Just starting the course took a couple of hours waiting on hold,” said Milligan.

“And then it was quite intimidating going through the trial while a whole bunch of people were sitting on the sidelines waiting for me to finish.”

Centrelink says there will be more fun for the whole family with exciting new obstacles being implemented each week.

“If you have any sort of disability, then you are in for a real treat,” said government spokesman Gary Jenkins.
