He was nicknamed ‘Mr Perfect’ after telling Ali Oetjen about his plans to settle down and start a family as soon as possible.
But The Bachelorette’s Charlie Newling’s appears to have a wild side, with pictures emerging of him partying with male friends at a Sydney gay bar in April.
In the photos, which were taken before he began filming the Network Ten dating series, the 31-year-old poses shirtless with a tiny spoon pendant around his neck.

Another picture showed the tattooed tradesman beaming for the camera while his female companion planted a friendly kiss on his cheek.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Charlie for comment.
It comes after the reality TV star confirmed on Monday that he has an eight-year-old son from a previous relationship.
Father: Charlie has made headlines of late, after it was revealed last week that he’s fathered a son from a previous relationship. Charlie’s son was born on September 24, 2010 at 2:21pm weighing 3.13kg. Daily Mail Australia has chosen not to identify the boy or his mother
‘I chose not to speak publicly about my child as I wanted to ensure their privacy was protected,’ he told the NW magazine.
Charlie’s son was born on September 24, 2010 at 2:21pm weighing 3.13kg. Daily Mail Australia has chosen not to identify the boy or his mother.
Meanwhile, he has been making headlines lately for his relationship with former Bachelor star Dasha Gaivoronski, 32.
Addressing the news: After refusing to comment to Daily Mail Australia, Charlie eventually confirmed the news to NW magazine on Monday: ‘I chose not to speak publicly about my child as I wanted to ensure their privacy was protected’
The pair have been spotted together on three separate occasions, despite the fact Charlie is still being featured as a contestant on The Bachelorette.
A source told Daily Mail Australia on Thursday that Charlie’s behaviour has likely angered Network Ten and producers Warner Bros. Australia.
‘He’s a major part of the show and is being edited as the winner, or at least final three. It’s frankly unbelievable he’s doing this,’ said the insider.
New flame: Following on from that, Charlie has been pictured flaunting his new romance with The Bachelor’s Dasha Gaivoronski [pictured], 32, in Sydney’s Coogee
‘He’s trying to sabotage the whole show. Who knows if his relationship with Dasha is the real deal – but one thing’s for sure, we know he doesn’t win.
‘The ratings are bad enough as it is without the frontrunners giving away the ending.’
The Bachelorette continues Wednesday at 7:30pm on Network Ten
Breaking contract: A source told Daily Mail Australia that Charlie’s behaviour will likely leave Network Ten and producers Warner Bros. Australia ‘furious’ as he’s still under contract. Pictured with Ali Oetjen, 32
