First Contestant From The Amazing Race Australia Revealed

Nathan Jolliffe, Erin McNaught’s boyfriend has been revealed to be on the first season of The Amazing Race Australia.

The Herald Sun reveals that it was Erin who revealed it to the world on Twitter.

The story goes:

McNaught inadvertently let the cat out of the bag on Twitter yesterday when Channel Nine Weekend Today reporter Airlie Walsh claimed she saw him in an advertisement for the show.

“@Erin–McNaught I just saw an ad for The Amazing Race with your beautiful boy. Can’t wait for the season premiere! #teamnathan,” Walsh tweeted.

“@AirlieWalsh Hey babe that’s so exciting! OMG where? You actually saw Nath on it? Isn’t it still supposed to be secret? Arrrgh! So crazy!,” McNaught replied.

“@Erin–McNaught Yep! Channel 7,” Walsh confirmed.

A Seven spokeswoman said no promotions revealing future contestants were being shown on the network and would not confirm any cast. But the Twitter posts were oddly removed after our phone call to Seven.

Well younger viewers will be pleased that they have some eye candy to look at as Jolliffe is a model. No news on who is teammate is, probably a mate, but then it could be with one of his parents..

Just confirms the rumours that the contestants were selected from agencies and not from the 1000’s of “ordinary” aussie’s who sent in their applications. Pretty slack really, yes eye candy is good, but knowing that they selected “real” people would be better.

slacker- we don’t even know who has, or has not, been selected yet. Yes, we might have an idea of one contestant… but what about all the others? I think you’re jumping the gun a little bit there.

Besides, all reality shows of the like (Survivor, US TAR, etc) have included someone like the above. Whether it be a “model” (low key), or a half-bit d-grade celebrity.

It’s just a part of the show… :)
