Waddell is making headlines now for being cast on the reality show about to air, but it isn't the first time he's been in the spotlight.
In fact, the new Bachie is weirdly linked to Zac Efron. He claimed in 2021 that an eco-series starring the actor was partially stolen from a TV show concept he had pitched.
Waddell alleged that the documentary series starring Efron, Down to Earth on Netflix, was copied from a pilot episode he filmed and shopped around in the United States in 2017.
Waddell even claimed that he copyrighted the name Down to Earth in the US and showed American producers his own trailer.
