The only person who took Jamie’s announcement with a grain of salt was Bachelor in Paradise alum Jess Brody, who wrote: ‘Omg the comments.’ 

Indeed, Jamie’s ‘announcement’ was nothing more than an April Fool’s Day prank.

A Channel Seven spokesperson confirmed to Technomiz Australia that Jamie was not involved in SAS Australia, describing his post as ‘fake news’. 

Jamie rose to fame on Angie Kent’s series of The Bachelorette in 2019, and went on to star in Bachelor in Paradise season three the following year.

In July last year, he announced he was suing production company Warner Bros. for his negative portrayal on both dating programs.

Taking action: 'Don't assume that my legal case against Channel 10 and Warner Bros. is built around an "edit". It's a lot more in-depth and there's a lot more in play here,' he said on social media in August. Pictured is Jamie on Bachelor In Paradise

In September, he officially lodged constitucional claims against Warner Bros. International, the company that produces The Bachelor for Channel 10. 

‘I feel they lacked a duty of care with a lot of things. There’s 22 different things we’re looking at,’ he told The Daily Telegraph earlier this year.

The lawsuit is only against Warner Bros. and Jamie is not suing Channel 10.
