Michael Turnbull seems determined to remain in the limelight as the former “Bachelorette” Australia contestant’s recent social media post certainly had people talking about it.

Michael Turnbull allegedly made a sex tape that his ex-girlfriend threatened to release to the public, Mail Online reported. The “Bachelorette” runner-up wanted to save face and man up to the situation by posting about it before it came up.

“I made a sex tape with an ex and its going to be sent to the media by her.
I thought I could trust her no matter what, guess I was wrong 😕
Anyway I thought it would just be easier if I own up to it, save myself any further embarassment by posting it myself. So I posted the sex tape here in the comments below.
Please keep any nasty words to yourself this is hard enough to deal with as it is! 😢”

However, the post turned out to be one of Turnbull’s “social media antics,” as revealed by his next post that showed what he literally meant by “sex tape.” He uploaded a picture of a roll of tape with the word “sex” written on it, the publication revealed. Despite his trickery, Turnbull managed to elicit a few laughs from his fans, Kiis1065 wrote. One fan asked if his ex-girlfriend used the tape to bind him while some thought the article referred to the Prime Minister of Australia.

Michael Turnbull denied earlier rumors that he would replace Richie Strahan on “The Bachelor” Australia 2016. However, will fans see him on “The Bachelorette” Australia this year? Recent photos published online showed his connection to Georgia Love, Mail Online revealed in a separate post. The pictures revealed their “flirty display” at last year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival, the publication noted. Hence, the publication speculated if they were “more than just friends.”
