There’s something not quite right about Bachelorette contestant Rhys’ recent Instagram snaps.

It turns out former Bachelorette contestant Rhys Chilton has a little more in common with another of the show’s cast offs than perhaps we first realised.

Like the first season’s Michael Turnbull, Chilton is from Brisbane.

*cough*

Okay, THERE’S MORE. It appears he’s also adopted his fellow Brisbanian’s penchant for lying tweaking his Instagram photos with Photoshop — and not in a tabloid-esque ‘how dare she put a filter on her bikini photo’ way.

In a ‘he actually photoshopped puppies onto a shirtless photo of himself’ way.

Yes, he did. He also did this kitten:

There are two possible courses of action for an ex-reality TV star caught out in photo-faking scandal during the infancy of their celebrity.

There’s the well-worn Turnbull route of: Deny, deny, deny. (A tactic he employed with some efficacy when he was caught out stealing photos of fancy champagne from Google images, wearing a fake Rolex, not attending the Logies, backing  a pyramid scheme…)

OR, there’s the newly forged Chilton path of totally owning it and, look, posting a pretty A+ follow up.

Not only did Rhys admit his fault via a series of well placed tearfully laughing emojis in the comments section of the puppy post, he also shared this:

“Just love spending time with my cub,” he captioned the dodgy photo of himself snuggled in the sheets with a baby tiger. “Can’t believe how fast he is growing!”

It’s such a solid gag, we’re not even mad.
