2. He’s dating 14 women but Bachelor Matty J swears
The Bachelor Matty Johnson swears he’s just your average bloke. Pictured here at the David Jones Spring Summer 2017 fashion launch on Wednesday night. After being dumped last year on The Bachelorette finale by Georgia Love, fan-favourite Johnson landed his own series, starting out with 22 eligible bachelorettes, so far ousting eight.
One of those, Natalie Holmberg, this week described living in the bachelorette house as like being in a “big, oestrogen-filled zoo” — and revealed that casual nudity among the women was commonplace.

“We got around naked in that house. It was a bit of a nudist colony,” she said. You could ask Johnson if he had the same experience, but he’s been gagged.

It’s true that with exes including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and his former wife, Jennifer Garner, Affleck’s choice of Shookus does make her look like a “hardworking normal girl” in comparison.

However, the idea of a wealthy producer of a celebrity-infested TV show (with a job so high-profile, an episode of Sex and the City was devoted to it), being referred to as “normal” is worth unpacking for a minute, especially when we consider the line that follow that quote.
