MAFS' Jessika Power to star in The Simple Life inspired travel show

After moving to the UK last year to pursue further career opportunities, Jessika Power is reportedly coming back to Australia in a couple of months to film a brand new reality TV show.

The Big Brother VIP star, who rose to fame on season six of Married At First Sight in 2018, is currently rumoured to be starring in her own travel series seemingly inspired by Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie’s iconic reality TV show, The Simple Life.

According to The Herald Sun, the “fish out of water” series will see Jessika journey across the country “exploring known and not-so-known towns, communities and coastlines from Melbourne to Brisbane”.

As for her sidekick, fellow Big Brother VIP contestant and fashion designer Imogen Anthony is tipped to be joining Jessika on the road trip.

The show’s concept is very similar to The Simple Life, which aired between 2003 and 2007 and saw wealthy socialites Paris and Nicole travel to remote parts of the US to work manual jobs and adapt to new surroundings.

The series has sparked eleven official remakes around the world and inspired a number of other similar projects, including Cardi B’s recent web series Cardi Tries.


While Jessika’s next TV gig is yet to be locked in, she also recently sparked rumours that she was going to star on Love Island UK in the near future.

When asked by MailOnline about the possibility of her appearing on the show, the 30-year-old said she was “one hundred percent” keen to give it a go.

“I'm very open to these shows being able to work for your love life and I would be very open to coming over to the UK and doing a show like that,” she said.

Following her appearance on Celebs Go Dating in the UK earlier this year, it was also speculated that Jessika could be cast on the next season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

‘Made for reality TV’

The news comes shortly after it was reported that fellow MAFS star Al Perkins, who is starring in the current season of the controversial experiment, has received plenty of attention from talent management companies and casting producers in London.

One British casting producer told Yahoo Lifestyle: “Al is made for reality TV and a natural fit for most UK shows, where there's big money to be made.

“It'd be great to try to get him some kind of cameo on Geordie Shore where he could teach the gang 'shoeys' and how Aussies party, and Celebs Go Dating bosses are also interested in potentially signing him for a future season.”

It’s also said that Al could also rake in tens of thousands of dollars through personal appearances and club tours if he does get over to the UK and capitalise on his profile as soon as the show wraps on TV.
