Although we’re all for another round of the ex-Wallabies’ badgerisms, there is, of course, the tiny issue of a few awkward encounters from the very women he’s already rejected – Cass Wood and Brooke Blurton have already been confirmed, with Romy Poulier and Vanessa Sunshine also reportedly on the show too.

He might also still be dating Lucy Steggles of the Steggles Chicken fame but ehhh… details.

2. Why Modern Family star Sarah Hyland is facing an avalanche of hate right now.

Small screen star Sarah Hyland, of Modern Family fame, has been forced to respond to a social media pile-on today.

And it’s all because she asked for donations via a GoFundMe campaign started to raise money for her family, in the wake of a tragic road accident.

Sarah’s cousin Tessa started the fundraising page after her 14-year-old brother Trevor was killed in an alleged drink driving accident over the weekend. The crash also left her uncle seriously injured and in need of further surgery.

The star used her Instagram and Twitter accounts to make a call-out for donations, urging fans to “Please DONATE” to funeral costs and linked them to the page.

The page had a goal of $US25,000 ($A34,000) – a goal that has already been exceeded, with more than $US30,000 ($A41,000) in funds raised in just one day.

But the posts triggered a flood of criticism, with many people questioning why a wealthy actress would be asking her fans for money, and not covering the costs of the surgery herself.

In response to the backlash, Sarah posted an emotional story to her Instagram, telling people to “keep negative thoughts about the tragedy to themselves”.

3. The hilarious moment Ellen transforms Julia Roberts into a Kardashian.

As it turns out, apart from hosting one of the world's most popular talk shows, Ellen DeGeneres also dabbles in social media consultation on the side.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her latest Amazon show, Homecoming, the 60-year-old gave the legendary actress a 101 lesson on instant Insta-fame and naturally, it involved borrowing some aesthetic techniques popularised by the Kardashian Klan.

"I am going to show you how to get more followers, because I have 60 million followers," Ellen said, before bringing out a makeover crew complete with a very 'full' Ellen bikini top with a low-cut kaftan.

Ellen's other techniques included bringing out Martha Stewart holding a pie (for the foodies), a throwback photo of Roberts' high school days (#tbt), and even a guest appearance from her My Best Friend's Wedding co-star, Dermot Mulroney (just because).

And while we can't speak for the additional 181 million people Roberts needs to surpass Kim Kardashian's follower count, she's got our vote.

On Monday, an Instagram user posted a photo of a man with very similar hair to Travis getting cosy with another woman.

Of course, the photo - which showed neither Travis or the woman's face - triggered a social media and TMZ-fuelled frenzy.

Because of course it did.

Responding to the vicious rumours on his own social media accounts, Travis (eloquently) posted: "S**t cap ass f**kkkk TMZ ain't post this s**t. Trolls working hard today."

"I don't be on balcony wit no thots. That s**t lame. Try again u trollssss. Me and my wifey sturdy. Back to celebrating!!!"

Got it. Thanks for clearing that up, Travis.
