Australia is gearing up and preparing for the big AFL Grand Final clash tonight between the Melbourne Demons and the Western Bulldogs at Optus Stadium.

And the country’s biggest media stars are no exception to the excitement, elation and eagerness as they prepare for the game.

Former Home and Away star Pia Whitesell, a proud Melbourne supporter, asked her followers on Instagram if there was anywhere in New York City screening the game. 

From Pia Whitesell watching the game in New York to Hamish Blake and his family having their own lucky cup for their team: How the stars are prepping for the AFL Grand Final

‘Does anyone know if anyone anywhere is showing the AFL Grand Final?’ the 37-year-old actress wrote, accompanying the post with the Demons logo. 

Four hours later, Pia seemingly found a sport and shared a selfie with the words: ‘Thank you!! You guys are the best! Go Dee’s.’

Nova radio host and former AFL player Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald posted a Heinz ketchup advertisement that he did with his co-host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli.

The boys are seen putting the sauce on their meat pies as they watch a footy match.

‘Happy Grand Final day ya characters,’ Fitzy captioned the clip. ‘Chuck on some @heinz_au ketchup on your pies today.’ 

Comedian Hamish Blake opted for the family photo in anticipation for the derby and revealed one sacred ritual he practiced every time the Demons have played a final.

The 39-year-old, his wife and two children are all seen holding a Melbourne Demons keepcup – which he says is the key ingredient to their ritual.

‘Every game of the AFL finals series, one member of the family has drunk from the sacred @melbournefc #positivelingers keepcup,’ he wrote. ‘The Dees have won every game we’ve done this.’

‘I’m not saying dominating stoppages won’t be important today, but I feel secure in the knowledge we’ve completed our ritual sip, and have done all we can. I know a lot of fans have a lot of rituals, as well as winning the contested ball today I feel if we can win the Omens, we’ve got this.’    

Hamish jokingly added that he ‘generally panicked’ when he couldn’t find the keepcup this morning.

Singer Anthony Callea appears to be preparing for a big night after he posted to Instagram boxes of food he recently had delivered to his house for the game.

The boxes included sandwiches and the conventional party pies and sausage rolls.

‘AFL Grand Final catering sorted,’ the ARIA award winner said before hilariously acknowledging his lack of knowledge of the game. ‘I better google what teams are actually playing.’

The comedian and radio host filmed a video inside her home of her kitchen table filled to the brim with an assortment of food and drinks including fruit, vegetables, eggs, bread, coca cola and soda water.

Kate at one point zooms in on a copy of the AFL footy record, a bowl with leftover cake mix and a cake that is baking inside her oven. 

‘Busy busy Bulldogs house,’ she captioned her post.

The AFL Grand Final begins tonight at 5:15pm (Western Australian time).

It will broadcast live on Channel Seven at 7:15pm.
