Dr Chris Brown believes Covid-themed reality shows should be all the rage

‘Farmer Wants A Vaccinated Wife!’ Doctor Chris Brown believes Covid-themed reality shows should replace dating programs featuring ‘failed marriages and lip fillers’

Doctor Chris Brown may have starred on some irreverent reality shows himself, but the celebrity veterinarian believes it’s time for television to get serious about Covid. 

The I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia host says that the best way to get the message across about the pandemic and vaccines is to deliver it via the country’s favourite pastime – watching reality TV. 

The 42-year-old writes in his column for The Daily Telegraph: ‘If the noughties gave us TV builders and the 2010s baked us more than a dozen TV chefs, then the stars of the 2020s are surely the TV epidemiologists.

‘In fact, if I don’t see the nominations released shortly for the Best New Talented Epidemiologist for this year’s Logies, then I’m not going.’

He even had some clever suggestions for what these new shows could be called, including Farmer Wants A Vaccinated Wife, The Masked Epidemiologist and Moderna Family.

Chris goes on to say that in 2021, it’s scientists who should be famous, rather than reality starlets.

‘If you want fame and followers in 2021, forget the failed marriages and lip fillers, get yourself in front of some books. Lots of books,’ he writes. 

Dr Chris tends to keep his personal life private, and is believed to currently be dating his rarely-seen girlfriend Brooke Meredith.

Reports first surfaced Chris was in a relationship with the model in May last year.

According to Woman’s Day magazine, the couple all-but-confirmed their romance when they were busted packing on the PDA while shopping for cleaning supplies at Bunnings Warehouse in Randwick, Sydney, in April 2020.

Chris and Brooke, who reportedly met through mutual celebrity friends, stayed in his Clovelly home during Sydney’s lockdowns.

Not only is Brooke’s a successful model, she is also the creator of health and wellness magazine, A Conscious Collection.
