Rumble in the jungle! Nick Cummins ‘signs up for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to recover his reputation after The Bachelor disaster’… but will Brittany and Sophie make a surprise appearance?
It looks like Nick Cummins isn’t done with reality television.
After his appearance on The Bachelor turned into a PR disaster, the 31-year-old former Wallaby has reportedly signed up for another Network Ten show.
According to New Idea on Monday, Nick will fly to South Africa to film the new season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

An industry insider told the magazine that Nick is hoping that he can recover his damaged reputation in the jungle.
‘Nick is still under contract with the network and is keen to win back the public’s approval so it’s the perfect opportunity,’ said the source.
‘The network bosses see him as a Shane Warne-style character who will – hopefully – redeem himself in the public eye during his time [on the show].’

While Nick may be hoping to salvage his reputation, his efforts could be sabotaged by the arrival of his two exes.
New Idea further reported that Brittany Hockley and Sophie Tieman – the women he dumped in the Bachelor finale – could also ‘be appearing as jungle intruders’.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Network Ten and Nick Cummins’ manager for comment.

Nick’s public image as a likeable Aussie larrikin was shattered earlier this month after he refused to pick a winner in The Bachelor finale.
He rejected Sophie, 25, in a rambling break-up speech, before telling bookies’ favourite Brittany, 31, that he wasn’t ready for a relationship.
Fans described the whole show as a ‘waste of time’ and slammed Nick for being ‘commitment phobic’ and unfairly leading the women on.
