SOPHIE Monk wants to be Australia’s first celebrity Bachelorette.
The Saturday Telegraph can reveal the unlucky-in-love television and radio presenter met with executives at Channel 10 on Thursday to pitch herself as the star of the third season of the popular reality dating show.
While the 37-year-old and her new manager Titus Day were not available to comment yesterday, it is understood Monk called the meeting.
The star recently revealed to The Saturday Telegraph’s BW magazine how she has struggled to find the right relationship.
“You’ve seen me in and out of love too many times,” she said. “If I wasn’t in this industry I reckon I’d be married with four kids already but it is tough.”
Monk has dated a string of high-profile men over the years, including Sam Worthington, Ryan Seacrest, Benji Madden, Jason Statham and most recently Eric Grothe Jr.
There’s been widespread speculation about the possibility of a celebrity Bachelorette this year, with beauty queen Tegan Martin telling friends she would be up for the challenge despite having a boyfriend.
There have even been suggestions Sam Frost could return in an attempt to make
it third time lucky in her search for love.
