Sophie Monk has revealed the surprising way she would finish filming early on The Bachelorette Australia.
The singer, 44, appeared on the third season of the reality TV show back in 2017, where she dated a line-up of men over several weeks in a bid to find true love.
And she has given an insight into what it was like filming for the hit programme, revealing how she would sneakily get around long days of filming.
Appearing on The Hundred with Andy Lee, Sophie shared that she would kiss her potential suitors early on because the producers would then let her finish filming.
Host Andy, 42, recalled his backstage conversation with Sophie, where she had revealed her show secret, as he told the audience.
‘I was asking Soph how long the days were on The Bachelorette and she said, “They were long, but the producer would say if you kissed them, normally they finished early, because that’s all they need”.’

The Love Island Australia host then confirmed: ‘They said they’d give me an early mark if I kissed them. So, I was like, “Hey, shut up. Stop talking”.’
Sophie was also asked how many men she had kissed in one day on The Bachelorette, to which she replied: ‘No more than… quite a few to be honest.’
Her revelation came as the panelists had to guess how many Australians have had multiple partners at the same time, with the answer being 28 per cent.
Sophie finished The Bachelorette with Stu Laundy and the pair dated for six months before going their separate ways, and she has since found love with husband Joshua Gross.
Her latest TV appearance comes after it was revealed that Sophie sold her Gold Coast riverfront investment property.
While the price wasn’t disclosed, property records show that the singer purchased the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home for $1.1million in 2016.

The Helensvale property, that sits on a sprawling 4018sq block, was recently vacated by tenants who rented the home for $1,200 per week.
Built in the late 1990s, the renovated property has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a boat ramp with direct river access.
The home also features a renovated kitchen which boasts a large stone benchtop.
The kitchen overlooks an alfresco area and large swimming pool, while the master bedroom has triple wardrobes, an en-suite and a balcony.
When Sophie listed the property for lease in 2021, the leasing agent told Realestate.com.au that a home on a large block is rare to find.
‘It feels as though you are living in a peaceful country estate but it’s still really close to everything you need with shops and good schools in the area so it’s an ideal family home,’ he said.
Sophie still owns a Mermaid Beach unit that she purchased for $165,000 in 2003.
