Producers of Channel Seven’s new reality series Made In Bondi are honing in on a group of very glamorous new cast members, reports claim.
Based on the wildly popular reality series Made in Chelsea, Made in Bondi will follow the lives and loves of Sydney’s party set who call the seaside city home.
According to The Daily Telegraph, producers are hoping to secure the likes of model Montanna Cox and Aidan Walsh – the suitcase entrepreneur ex of Jodi Anasta – for season one.
Also reportedly on producers’ wish lists are Sir. the label fashion designer Sophie Coote, Body by Berner pilates founder Bernadette Fahey, and Bondi socialite couple Andy El-Bayeh and Harriet Williams.
Unfortunately, an insider claims producers may have difficulty wooing potential cast members.

‘Most of these people don’t really see the benefit of starring on the show,’ they told The Daily Telegraph.
‘They already have money and notoriety, and they saw what a flop (Netflix series) Byron Baes was, so are hesitant.
Byron Baes followed a group of Byron Bay-based artists, influencers and entrepreneurs as they navigate life in the trendy coastal town.

The series attracted plenty of controversy, with furious locals last protesting the production of the show.
Netflix was even forced to hold ‘crisis talks with stakeholders’ amid growing backlash.
The show itself received poor reviews, earning an audience score of just 33% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Seven has joined with Channel 4 to commission Made in Bondi.
‘Set against the backdrop of some of Australia’s most affluent and beautiful suburbs – and with an amazing cast of Sydney locals – Made in Bondi will be an addictive, glamorous and wild ride that will have viewers hooked from the first minute,’ Seven programming executive Angus Ross said.
