Meanwhile, another insider told the publication that there is constant talk on-set about Gilbert's future TV career, and some even believe that he has been cast on Network 10's breakfast show Studio 10, which is currently being revamped.
“Some of the girls were saying he booked in a stack of appearances on the show once The Bachelor was over, and he was using the dating show as a jumping point to become a TV presenter,” a source revealed.
“It caused a lot of issues with the girls—they were divided, some felt it was fine and others didn’t want to become collateral damage for someone who just wanted to add to his acting reel.”
Proving their point, an insider from Network 10 even confirmed to the publication that Gilbert's future with them is looking "very bright", even saying that their widespread budget cuts were to "give rise to available and reasonably priced talent like Locky".
“He’d fit in very well—he’s charming and TV-tested, has fans and wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg like some of the presenters on there,” the source said.
Either way, we'll just have to wait and see if the rumours are true.
