1. Erm. The Bachelor’s Matt Agnew has just set the record straight about his day job.
Can you think of anything worse than thinking you’ve met an astrophysicist, but it turns out they’re actually a banker?
*(We obviously can).
Fans of the reality show were shook when The Sydney Morning Herald reported that 31-year-old Agnew was ~secretly~ working at the country's biggest bank, NAB.
“He’s been working as an analyst on secondment,” a source revealed to gaping mouths across the nation.

So this morning, Agnew spoke to Kyle and Jackie O to set the record straight about it all. He owes it to the nation, after all.
Calling it a “ludicrous” speculation, he said: “Before I went in filming, I was working as an astrophysicist.”
“I was still employed as an astrophysicist during filming,” he continued.
But then, as he explains, he had a slight career shift and how dare he not tell us.
“I basically pivoted and moved into a position as a data scientist,” he said. “I started working with a data science consultancy called Quantium.
“In the two months that I’ve worked for them, I think I’ve had two, maybe three meetings at one of the NAB offices and that was sufficient to create the story that apparently I’m a banker.”
NOBODY PANIC. He's still a scientist.
Phew. That was a close one.
2. “I don’t know what we were thinking.” Jackie O on the time she was almost arrested.
Having Jane Seymour chase you out of her LA home threatening to call the police would be a strange turn of events while on holiday.
