Max spoke to PerthNow about the reality stars and revealed, "I've just done a few deals for Timm and Ciarran with HelloFresh."

"This COVID-19 period has been extraordinary because people aren't going out as much so the online retailers are selling more products."

He added that the reality stars he manages charge $1000 for an Instagram Story, which only last for 24 hours.

Max revealed that some of the products these stars are promoting include sex toys and home delivery services.

Of course, the amount someone can make from an Instagram post is dependent on how many followers they have and the engagement they receive on their posts.

Apparently, Timm and Ciarran were only earning $500 a week while they were on the show, so these posts have certainly helped their bank balances!

Timm has been busy promoting a number of brands, recently he posted about getting fat cavitation. He's also posted about a mattress brand, clothing brands, hotels, a dental studio and more.
