Bachelorette star Jarrod Woodgate has revealed he is becoming a wedding celebrant so he can officially help couples tie the knot on his family’s winery in Gippsland, Victoria.
“Business has picked up dramatically after the show with the combination of weddings to the point where I want to get a celebrant’s licence so I can marry people on the winery,” the 31-year-old told The Daily Telegraph.
Woodgate - who just returned from Fiji after filming Bachelor in Paradise - says the world wide web has been kind to him following his stint on The Bachelorette.
“People’s perception of me has definitely changed which is such a good thing,” he said. “They say I’m a lot taller and a lot better looking in person and that TV does not do me any justice,” he said.
“Having your followers jump up by 17,000 overnight after one episode, you know you’re doing something right and people are finally understanding what you’re about.”
Woodgate also revealed that he’s still in contact with Sophie Monk.
“It’s her birthday next week so I will probably give her a call and wish her happy birthday. We haven’t chatted for about five or six weeks, she’s going through her own times, if she wants to reach out I’m sure she will.”
