Ryan spoke with 2DAY FM’s Hughesy, Ed & Erin and revealed the huge sum he has already made, as well as the fact that his fiancée, Olympian Emily Seebohm, encouraged him to get on OnlyFans to make "stupid money".
The reality star announced last week that he'd signed up on the platform promoting himself as “an Aussie bloke with a big willy” and charging subscribers $15 a month to access his content.
"I'm making very good money," he told the hosts, adding he didn't want to specify a number, because listeners might not like what they hear.
"We get that, but we're actually asking you, and it's actually fascinating, people love this stuff," Erin Molan told him. "I'm desperate to know, give us a ballpark of like, what you make a week doing it, and I promise you no one driving to their 9-5 miserable job now will hate you for it."
"Well, look, it's between $1 and $50,000 a month," Ryan said cheekily.
"He's making $50,000 a month!" a surprised Dave 'Hughesy' Hughes said.
While he joked that it was between the two numbers he first said, he added, "Well, I'm in the top three per cent now!"
"It's growing!" Hughesy added, still in shock.
"Yeah it is, believe it or not!" Ryan said.
When Erin questioned if Emily would ever consider setting up an OnlyFans account after seeing how much money he was making, Ryan joked, "The thing with Emily is, Emily's actually respected – I never was."
"Ryan Gallagher's getting nude on the Internet and making $50,000 a month, and it's going up, so it's probably like $100,000," Hughesy said, with Erin in shock, saying it was "unbelievable".
The reality star joked that he would have happily done radio if given the opportunity.
Ryan's nude photos leak
A number of the reality star's explicit images and videos have already leaked from behind his paywall onto a notorious online sex forum, with one industry expert predicting this will result “in tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue”.
Several images shared to the adult forum, which Yahoo Lifestyle will not name, show Ryan posing completely nude in the shower and holding his manhood - and have been viewed thousands of times.
As the majority of his first posts have now been stolen and shared online for free, there is less of an incentive for new users to subscribe.
