Jake Ellis just exposed the very unglamorous reality of how Megan Marx takes her photos.


There are few things more crucial to a banging selfie than good lighting.

And, naturally, anyone who has ever taken a selfie knows that good lighting happens in the most inconvenient of places.

Like, uh, bathrooms. Mainly bathrooms.

So, when Jake Ellis, 31, posted a ‘behind the scenes’ look at how girlfriend Megan Marx, 29, takes her selfies, we felt it deep in our soul.

Jake’s Instagram video shows Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise star Megan sitting on the floor a bathroom, practically hugging the toilet in order to take advantage of the natural light coming through the bathroom window.

It's a quick reminder that behind their Insta feed, an 'influencers' life is not as glam as it looks.


But when Megan posted her (#spon) selfie on the gram, it was very clear why she'd go to such uncomfortable lengths for a selfie.

Because that lighting is SO GOOD.

Megan and Jake, who met on Bachelor in Paradise and split back in August, shared with fans they were happily back together in an Instagram post on Megan’s account (where else?) last month.

The 29-year-old explained that she was the one who ultimately ended things, but after two months, she returned home to Jake, who wanted to patch things up.
