Aussie reality TV stars reveal the ‘nightmare’ contractual detail that is halting their careers as influencers

Australian reality TV stars have revealed the ‘nightmare’ contractual detail that will end their budding careers as influencers.

For the stars of hit shows like Married At First Sight and The Bachelor, becoming an influencer seems like the next logical step after rising to reality TV fame.

However, contestants have indicated that the shows’ strict social media rules are hindering them from launching successful careers on the platforms.

Contestants on most Australian reality TV shows are required to give up their social media accounts while the show is airing, with stars expressing frustration.

An anonymous MAFS star told Yahoo! Lifestyle they would ‘never’ have signed up for the series if they knew how strict the contracts were for the Channel Nine show.

Meanwhile, a contestant on the 2024 Seven Farmer Wants A Wife series told the publication that it was “too late” for her to pursue a career as an influencer when she finally regained control of their social media.

‘When I had access to my Instagram account, I would get tons of collaboration and sponsorship messages in my inbox, but once I took control, those opportunities dried up,’ they explain.

A former contestant on The Block added: ‘It’s a nightmare and the access you’re giving to a complete stranger feels like a huge invasion of their privacy.’
