The Perth beauty, who was infamously matched with Harrison Boon, spoke to Yahoo Australia's Behind The Edit podcast about her time on the hit reality show and what she thinks of the new season - and also revealed how much money she's making from adult platform OnlyFans.
Last year Bronte revealed she made a staggering $100,000 after only three days on the platform, and now she's revealed OnlyFans has funded her new business.
"The money is freaking great," she said. "My first month, my account did $250,000, it was insanity and I was hardly even posting on there."
"It's the freedom I've always wanted and it's not what everyone thinks it is. I get photos of people wanting to see my belly button or my feet. You don't have to sell yourself completely to make money."
'My parents told me to do it!'
Bronte also revealed she had some surprising extra encouragement to jump onto OnlyFans — and it came from her parents.
"My parents were the ones who told me to do it!" she explained. "They're like, with the housing crisis and everything that's going on at the moment, the way to get ahead is to be doing something like this... so many reality stars do it, so many celebrities do it and they make really good money and set themselves up.
"My mum was like 'Bronte, you're not gonna have this body and you're not gonna look like this forever'. So she goes, 'If I was your age and I needed to make some money in a year I'd do it.'"
Bronte said while OnlyFans is a short-term goal, it's helped her set herself up for the future.
"It's never been something that I wanted to do full-time. It's funded my new business, so now that I've got my swimwear label with my best friend Lauren, that's something that's been a dream of mine for pretty much most of my twenties.
"If you can accept and get through the backlash of being on OnlyFans you can get through anything. It's $700 for my belly button, I'm like, that's rent paid!"
