1. Ash Williams was about to make a LOT of money on The Bachelor before he was dropped.
So, it looks like I'm a Celebrity's Ash Williams was set to make $180k as The Bachelor this year, but lost the opportunity after being charged with recording an intimate video of a woman without her consent.
Megan Pustetto, of So Dramatic! broke the news on her podcast this week, when one of Ash's close friends dropped the figure; adding that it was not the court case, but rather than he is currently off the market.
"Ash signed with the network for $180,000 across the two shows. Part of the $90,000 sum has already landed in his bank account off the back of I’m A Celeb, however he won’t be collecting the next cheque as he’s off the market and will no longer feature on The Bachelor," they said.
"Channel Ten has also played the safe bet by cancelling all of his media appearances in Sydney."
Megan explained that $180k was a decent pay packet for I'm a Celebrity, although Angie Kent made 200k on The Bachelorette alone.
Mamamia reached out to Network 10, who released this statement:
"Will Ash Williams alpaca his things and exit the Aussie jungle to become The Bachelor 2021? He certainly seems to have thekoalafications! While we would never confirm nor deny if his jungle cachet will see him don a tux and hit the red carpet, it is obvious to viewers that he’s caught the attention of some of the single ladies in the Aussie jungle where it could be argued he’s currently the real MEB (Most Eligible Bachelor)."
