Joel is briefly mentioned in this article:


FOR all of the flack it cops, reality television is one of the few places where you can see a truly broad spectrum of Australians, small screen legend Tony Ayres says.

Whether a talent show or a cooking competition, these formats routinely feature people from all walks of life, backgrounds and sexualities.

Programs like The Block, which featured a gay couple in its debut series, and Australian Idol, which made drag queen Courtney Act a household name, set the benchmark for bold, brave casting more than a decade ago.

“They just show you the world,” Ayres says. “It’s a sample of the community, what you might see walking down the street. I think the rest of TV could do that.”
I agree with that part about reality TV being a leader. That was one of the things I liked about Big Brother in its early days, that it had a refreshing progressiveness on LGBTI issues, at a time when the rest of the community hadn't fully caught up.

'Laurina is fake and she's on the dole': Former pal of I'm A Celebrity star Laurina Fleure claims her 'high end' image is all an act

>In an explosive interview with this week's New Idea, Andrew Taza claims the former Bachelor beauty has received Centrelink benefits and sells cheap clothes from China in her online boutique.

>'Her real name is Laurina Fitzgerald and she buys the clothes from China, sewing her own labels into them,' he told the publication.

Take that.

I have kind of been out in the loop in regards to the ratings for this season. Can anyone fill me in on whether the show has been a success or failure in that department and whether or not it is likely that the show makes a return next year?

That's a heavy story @pecan
Very sad if what it says about the lion cubs is true.

BUT... I do think it's ungrateful to reject a donation from a celebrity and show who had good intentions.
By all means educate people, but don't condemn them for not knowing things they couldn't possibly know.
