And on Monday’s Have You Been Paying Attention? panellist Sam Pang noted guest Sophie Monk, 37, and host Tom Gleisner, 55, standing next to each other had provided the show’s ‘most Edelsten moment ever.’

The awkward comment was in relation to 74-year-old millionaire Geoffrey Edelsten’s fondness for younger women, having dated blonde beauties including Brynne Edelsten, 34.

Geoffrey famously dated and married socialite Brynne Edelsten, 34, and porn star Gabi Grecko, 28.

And the awkward comments didn’t stop there, with Sam mocking Tom’s line of sight, thanks to Sophie’s plunging neckline of her red frock.

‘We’re under a lot of pressure – almost as much as Tom while he’s trying to maintain eye contact (with Sophie),’ Sam joked. 

Sophie, a model, singer and actress, appeared on the popular game show Have You Been Paying Attention? to promote her stint on current series, The Bachelorette Australia.

The statuesque blonde revealed that she’s found the ‘perfect man’ from the show.

‘When I was young all I wanted to be was like my Mum and have kids,’ Sophie said.

‘But I understand that my lifestyle meant I couldn’t have a relationship like my Mum and Dad. But, the man I have now found is the perfect man for me,’ she continued.

The Bachelorette Australia airs on Network Ten at 7.30pm Wednesdays and Thursdays.
