Even the Americans don't have celebrities of this caliber as their leads. So to me this is solely on the Aussie network themselves and yes, totally a ratings ploy IMO and going by the comments on IG, a very controversial decision already.

OMG - ITA this season is going to be a train wreck!

She's a mess and I think the season is going to be one very sticky yucky dirty mess.

I never thought those rumours were true and I'm totally in shock. I had really hoped that they would choose Nikki and they chose someone her complete opposite. I can't even imagine the guys they'll get for her... I just can't even......

What do the Aussie posters think? She does not have a good reputation in NZ at all - anytime I read about her it's about something outrageous that's she's done.

She is 37, that's why they upped the age range in the casting call. All makes sense now.

Ps. not knocking her age just commenting in reference the the age change we were speculating on.

Holy Cow.  Did not see this one coming at all!  

Not disappointed though - I quite like Sophie. Haven't followed her radio career but I remember her from her first TV appearance on the Bardot reality show (where they put together a girl band, back in 2000-2001?) and remember being surprised at how witty and intelligent she is - definitely not the ditzy blonde bimbo one might expect if they were being judgmental based on her outward appearance.  

I think it will be a different season to previous but that's not a bad thing.  Sophie is well polished and practiced in front of the camera (not unlike Georgia in that sense) but I have a gut instinct she will be more "real" than G who I found had her "TV face" on a lot of the time which made her hard to read IMO.  I think Sophie might surprise a lot of people and I look forward to sleuthing her season.

All JMO.

I think that's what they're relying on to get higher ratings after Georgia's season tanked ratings-wise. The problem is they've gone too far the other way - from a complete unknown to a celebrity. A returning contestant like Nikki would've been a perfect medium IMO - well known enough to draw in viewers, but not a high profile celebrity who is clearly not genuine about 'finding love', and whom the contestants are clearly not interested in 'finding love' with. They'll get high ratings in episode 1 because people will tune in out of curiosity but it'll drop off very quickly after that. This is going to bite them in the azz, IMO.

Re: the bold, just wondering what this is based on?  

I just read the news.com article http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/reality-tv/sophie-monk-is-hoping-to-be-lucky-in-love-as-channel-10s-new-bachelorette/news-story/d93ff2377c62e02a47a4ea5115f3138e and everything Sophie says there makes it sound like she is genuine about finding love.  It makes perfect sense to me that she would want a different/normal guy to the celebrity type she usually goes out with, and there wouldn't be many avenues for her to meet people in her everyday life because she is so high profile.

Similarly, re: the guys, casting for the Bachette started ages ago so presumably they'd have no idea it was going to be Sophie? So who's to say they aren't interested in finding love with her? Yes they'd also be interested in small-time fame - as would any contestant on a reality show -  but Sophie would probably need to be with someone at least mildly keen on show-biz, because it's her world.  They'd be just as likely to be there for the right reasons as any other previous contestant, IMO.  I'm giving everyone the benefit of the doubt.

She is a BAD choice but in fairness I think she is a sweetheart and far from a villain. She is though, as dumb as dog poop and will be completely manipulated by the producers. She has a voice that could open a tin can but sings yup a storm. Plus she is and absolute bogan. Lock yourself in for some blokey blokes

Ratings are not based solely on number of viewers which is a good thing because viewership will decline every year given how each year fewer people watch live TV. Plus, statistically speaking, millennials who are a target audience watch in groups typically and as a demographic are the lowest demographic to watch live TV (or any TV). So while it may be a ratings ploy I don't think it will really matter, IMO, who the lead is when it comes to overall viewership for the future since I think the days of typical TV watching are on their way out.

What is included in ratings and looked upon with more weight than just viewership is social media engagement. It's for that reason I can see they'd choose a celeb such as Sophie who already has a strong SM and media presence. It will be interesting to see if TPTB's choice pans out.

great post! My knowledge of her is not good. She's made it into the NZ news when she has done something sensational like posing topless, having nude photos of her leaked and posing for playboy (gosh - she does like to get naked!).

I might be plessantly surprised - and I hope I am - but to me, she comes across as having no filter on her mouth and a massive attention seeker.

Sophie at the Logies tonight and thus her announcement timed with the event.

Here's what she wore. There's more pics of her on IG


Red is my favourite! Thank you to @galanni for the comfiest Logies dress ever! @sophiemonk
