Sometimes I wonder how you put up with me. Then I remember I put up with you, so we’re even. ???? @cockatooisland

A post shared by Matty J (@matthewdavidjohnson) on

He started by revealing that he only got about five minutes to speak to each of the 25 women vying for his heart.

“The thing is it’s a bit like a job interview where, if you are going and applying for a job you are extremely nervous, but if you are interviewing people for a position you don’t care really, you are not that fussed,” he said.

“You normally do three girls, then you might get a bathroom break, bit of water, freshen up, grab a mint, back in for more.”

According to promos for this year’s season of The Bachelor, the first episode is already set to be a winner with a contestant arriving in a wedding dress and another confusing astrophysics for astrology.

Can it… start already?

2. “I needed to grow without her.” Kylie Jenner on her broken friendship with Jordyn Woods.

In today’s Kardashian tea, we bring you more on the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson cheating scandal… specifically the collateral damage that was Jordyn Woods’ long-running friendship with Kylie Jenner.

Now that Jordyn has been banished from the Kardashian inner circle for the rest of her days (we assume), we’re all wondering how Kylie – her former best friend – is handling it all.

As it turns out... she's basically fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

In a clip from the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which dropped on E!, Kylie is chatting with Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian.

Jordyn of course comes up in conversation, because Kris didn't work this hard to orchestrate a cheating scandal for it not to provide juicy drama for more than one season. (I mean, what?)

“So, Jordyn,” Khloe asks when Kris leaves the room.

“Do you miss her, like, want to be friends with her?”

Kylie then answers: “I think that this whole Jordyn situation needed to happen... for me, for you, for her, for everybody."

“She was my security blanket. We did everything together. It just felt like, I have Jordyn, I don’t need anything else, and I feel like there’s a part of me that needed to grow without her.”

Following her appearance at the Logies, Lisa Wilkinson woke up to rumours.

Splashed across news outlets was the story that she and Karl Stefanovic had allegedly had a fight on the red carpet.

But during a segment on The Sunday Project last night, Lisa shut down the narrative.

During a discussion about sensationalism in the media, Lisa's fellow panelist Susie Youssef joked that "In the next issue [of a sensationalist magazine] we will be revealing what Lisa said to Karl Stefanovic on the Logies red carpet and how she made co-star Hamish Macdonald cry during a Logies dress fitting."

Hamish Macdonald commented "So, what did you say to Karl on the red carpet?", to which Lisa jokingly responded, "I told him to go f**k himself."

The conversation then proceeded to take a more serious turn as The Project panelist addressed the rumours.

"I was standing at the Woolies check-out the other night and there is a couple of those magazines reporting on the Logies," she began.

"Apparently Karl and I had a fight on the red carpet, which is completely untrue," she added.

"We don’t know the truth and all the magazines and websites do is that they get bad photos of people and write a narrative around it and people click on it."

If you thought Lindsay Lohan would steer clear of Australia, prepare to be... mind blown.

According to Pedestrian TV, Lindsay Lohan is going to be a judge on The Masked Singer Australia.

Yep. She will be the host Osher Gunsberg's new television BFF.

The 33-year-old musician and actress has been signed up by Channel Ten, and will judge alongside Dannii Minogue, Jackie O, and Dave Hughes.

The show is exactly how it sounds: A celebrity gets on stage, in an identity-concealing costume and performs a song. It's up to the judge to guess who it is.

Quality. Television.

5. "It wasn’t a joke to me." Amanda Keller has spoken for the first time about Tom Gleeson's Logies speech.

Radio host and television presenter Amanda Keller has spoken for the first time about how she felt after Tom Gleeson’s controversial Gold Logie speech.

Appearing on radio show Jonesy and Amanda for the first time since the Logies, Keller said there were elements of the speech that she thought crossed the line.

Gleeson, comedian and host of Hard Quiz, ran a campaign in order to win, which took aim at his fellow nominees. Keller was one of them.

Find out how Keller reacted to the campaign and Gold Logie win in our earlier post here.
