Our boss agrees with you.
Wonder if Bryce is actually putting this on to a large degree.
Like, he's worked out the best way to maximise his profile is to be The Villain.
Try and leverage that into being a Controversial Radio Host, a Kmart Kyle Sandilands.
In retrospect his picking fights with Sam very early on is very contrived. And he bit off more than he can chew in that regard.
But as a strategy for maximising exposure it is pretty good.
There's a clear demand in the Australian radio sector for hateful but controversial male hosts though.As someone with little interest in social media I might be naïve about these sort of things, but I honestly wonder what currency appearing on these types of shows offers. Insta-clicks? TV, radio & modelling work? Promoting fashion labels? I know a couple of Big Brother contestants like Fitzy and Chrissie Swan have had successful careers in the media, but it must be a long shot. I think we'd all be amazed if Bryce Ruthven gets a high profile radio gig out of this.
And as a relative newcomer to this stupid show, I'd like to believe that the participants of the first few seasons of MAFS were genuine lonely hearts who were not applying for more professional/commercial reasons. Either way, the balance seems way off - too many flogs and campaigners this season.
Hey Dapper I have an editing question.Our boss agrees with you.
Not a lot, no. Early on they got minimised and played for comedy so I didn’t spend a lot of time going through his footage. He’s a classic.
