Newly-single Richard Reid wants to be The Bachelor



He's the entertainment reporter who has become famous in his own right.

And on Monday, newly-single Richard Reid said he wants to be the first gay Bachelor. 

'I don't think I could do Married At First Sight. Maybe I'll do the gay Bachelor, how about that?' he told The Daily Telegraph.

He went on to say he's looking for a 'younger version' of himself and someone who 'doesn't take themselves too seriously'.

Meanwhile in July, Richard was not afraid to hit back at rival gossip guru Perez Hilton who claimed bosses wanted him for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! instead.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Richard joked: 'I guess I owe a huge debt of thanks to Perez. I'm so grateful he was too busy and Ten went with me instead.' 

Richard, who won I'm A Celebrity... in February, continued: 'Viewers really responded to how positive all the camp mates were this year and how we all got along.

Winner: The gossip guru won the fifth season of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

'It would have been a completely different show if Perez had been there instead.'

At the time, Perez told The Daily Telegraph: 'No diss to him but I am an international icon and that Richard whatever his name is, is not.'

'I was on Skype with the [I'm A Celeb] executive producer and they ended up casting a D-List version of me,' added Perez, claiming he was first approached for the show. 

Richard became a household name in Australia back in 2008 when he joined the Today show for their daily gossip segment. 

He remained there until 2015, before jumping ship to Studio 10.
