Surprise new way Aussie reality stars are making millions – and it's not OnlyFans

It seems as though there's serious money to be made here.

Australia's leading reality stars have found a lucrative new way to earn themselves a fortune in a small amount of time, and it has nothing to do with OnlyFans.

As the adult website, Instagram endorsements and podcast market all become oversaturated, making it harder than ever to make big money via these platforms, many former dating show contestants are cashing in by booking national speaking tours.

Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal that Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley currently own this space and are on track to generate $1,500,000 in ticket sales on their upcoming eight-date Life Uncut Live tour across Australia and New Zealand.


The duo will be inviting celebrity friends such as Rebel Wilson to join them each night as they sit down in front of a total of 16,000 fans across all dates.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Abbie Chatfield generated approximately $1,100,000 on her sold-out six-date Trauma Dump tour – which was attended by 12,000 total fans and culminated with two nights at Sydney's iconic Enmore Theatre.

Last month, Love Island Australia's Anna McEvoy and Matthew Zukowski took their pod Where's Your Head At? to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to celebrate hitting two million downloads.

The three-date tour generated approximately $100,000 in ticket sales after being attended by 1,650 total fans.

Yahoo Lifestyle understands more and more reality stars – and broadcasters – are set to tap into the speaking tour market in the future.


Married At First Sight's Domenica Calarco and Ella Ding are said to have discussed the potential of an upcoming tour to celebrate the success of their Sit With Us podcast.

Meanwhile, radio queen Jackie 'O' Henderson will make her stage debut later this month by hosting her very own “in conversation” style event with Gwyneth Paltrow through her new business Besties.

The one-off event at Sydney's ICC Darling Harbour is estimated to generate at least $500,000 in ticket sales.
