Justin Lacko has tried love island without any luck but maybe a different reality dating show will help him find the one?

It’s been a rumour circling for a while that the reality TV star would become the next Australian Bachelor and he recently admitted while competing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! that he’d applied for the program.

And so the first thing Kyle and Jackie O wanted to find out after being eliminated from the jungle was whether he’d actually been chosen to star in the Bachie franchise.

Speaking to us live from South Africa this morning, Justin told us that he hadn’t heard any news about his application yet, but he was feeling very hopeful.

“What about you being the new Bachelor? Any truth to that? Would you do it?” Jackie asked.


“I hope so,” Justin responded.

“Has anyone from Channel Ten, have you talked about it?” asked Kyle.

“I’ve literally just gotten out of the Jungle and I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to look at my emails or turn on my phone,” he continued. “I’m still yet to find out any news.”

So there’s definitely a chance that Justin could have been chosen and he just doesn’t know it yet!


After all, a Channel Ten representative confirmed to The Sunday Telegraph earlier that the I’m A Celeb star was definitely a “contender” to be the next Bachelor.

Either way, Justin certainly is looking for love and isn’t giving up on his search to find the one.

“I’m still looking for love and I really do want to find someone,” Justin told us.

Stay tuned until we find out more! Justin promised we’d be the first to know if he lands the role!
