Is Darren Lyons Going To Be Australia’s Arnie Schwarzenegger?
Normally people go from being politicians to reality TV stars not going from being a reality TV star to being a politician. But in the case of Darren Lyons he has managed to achieve this.
On the weekend Darren was voted in a Mayor of Geelong. In a large field he received nearly 30 percent of the primary vote. Darren is best known as being a celebrity photographer who has his own Paparazzi agency here and in the UK. He also was on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK as well as Celebrity Apprentice Australia. He is quite flamboyant and before his time in the Big Brother house got a six pack implanted into his abdomen. It was not a great look but was amusing.
If this is the start of his political career who can tell and maybe he will do an Arnie and become Premier of Victoria? What we do know is there will be far more coverage of Geelong local politics in the press for the next four years.
