Yesterday, after months of speculation, the cast of controversial Netflix docu-soap Byron Baes leaked, revealing which unfairly pretty influencers would be taking part in the show.
Granted, this is all tea copped from gossip column, Confidential, so Christ knows how legit it is, but I reckon it’s legit enough to go ahead and chuck each of them a follow and theorise what they’ll be like on the show (if the rumours are true).
Here, I’ve ranked each (alleged) Byron Baes cast member by how likely they are to bring the drama, based purely on their Instagram photos. Hey, IG is their game, after all.
Remember, these are legit shit-talking THEORIES based on nothing but the shallowness of Instagram.
10. 9. Dave Frim and Saskia Wotton
This hot couple is reportedly set to bring us relationship envy on Byron Baes, but drama? Well, it’s hard to say considering his profile is on private and hers features your typical (but oh so gorgeous) Byron gal snaps.
Jury’s still out on this one.
8. Elias Chigros
Let’s face it, Elias Chigros is a big, quiet, beautiful man who brought us zero drama on Love Island, so it’s probs the same deal with Byron Baes.
He’ll just serve as some sweet eye candy while abject chaos is going down throughout the show.
Super keen to see what he got up to post-Love Island, though. Welcome back to telly, babes.
7. Hannah Brauer
Honestly, I’ve never heard of Hannah Brauer and Confidential’s Byron Baes report described her as the daughter of Bisque Traders in Bangalo, to which she is now co-creative director, so I’m getting heiress vibes. Australia’s Paris Hilton, perhaps?
I just had a stalk of her ‘gram and it’s filled with stunning travel shots and selfies that totally encompass the vibes of a local influencer.
If Byron Bay had a princess, Hannah would be it, I’m sure.
6. Elle Watson
Elle Watson appears to be a festival-loving free spirit, based on her gorgeous party pics, and will probs be bringing style and flair to Byron Baes.
The following quote she once posted makes it sounds like she takes no shit from anyone so she could be a definite force to reckon with:
5. 4. Jess and Lauren Bell
They’re both sisters, one’s blonde, one’s brunette, remind you of anyone?
Perhaps they’re the Kim and Kyle Richards of Byron Baes (a.k.a. the chaotic sisters on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), which has been described as Real Housewives set in Byron Bay. If history’s any guide, I’m sure there’ll be a spot of sibling rivalry here or there. It’s only natural, right?
Their ‘grams feature your classic Byron babe piccies, here’s a quick preview:
3. Alex Reid
Considering he once worked for king of chaos, Kyle Sandilands, and is a former talent manager, Alex Reid is no stranger to drama, I’m sure.
His profile is on private so I have no piccies to share, but here’s a screenie of the Byron Baes star’s profile:
2. Jade Kevin Foster
I was wondering where on earth I’d heard this name, then it hit me… Jade Kevin Foster is set to star alongside a bunch of influencers and Bachie stars Angie Kent and Romy Poulier in the forthcoming Aussie horror movie, The Possessed.
Given that, and that fact that he loves a drink, he’ll make a perfect fit for Byron Baes considering it’s a docu-soap in the vein of Real Housewives.
1. Nathan Favro
Given the amount of drama that he brought to both The Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise, I reckon Nathan Favro will be the king drama-bringer on Byron Baes.
Bachie fans will remember Nathan from Ali Oetjen’s season of The Bachelorette in 2018. He was yeeted out of the mansion after Ali accused him of spreading rumours about her dating history. He’s also been linked to The Bachelor 2020 runner-up, Bella Varelis.
So not only will he defs be causing some chaos, but he’ll probs also be giving us some sweet Bachie cameos, here’s hoping.
Bring it on, bb.
