Reality TV stars are known to benefit from their overnight stardom by becoming popular online personalities.
And according to The Daily Telegraph, MAFS bride Tamara Joy has been actively looking for ways to leverage her growing social media following for free travel.
An alleged leaked email, with numerous errors, appears to show her talent agent requesting free holidays in exchange for publicity.

The email, which wasn’t denied to have been sent by SL Media Co, was riddled with errors and spelling mistakes.
The media agency was believed to be reaching out to travel companies and tour providers in Australia on behalf of Tamara and New Zealand MAFS star Samuel Levi.
In the alleged pitch, it suggests the pair would come as a joint package and promised the duo ‘can offer so much together’.

So much to offer! In the alleged pitch, it suggests the pair would come as a joint package and promised the duo ‘can offer so much together
‘Would love to know your thoughts, on getting the pair in to experience a trip together as the pair would love to visit and experience this part of Australia, and do it together,’ the published text read.
It went on to boast about their combined follower count, which was overshot by more than 25,000.
Levi’s assistant told the publication: ‘Brands have reached out to him, and we have also reached out to some that would be a great alignment, and ones more on par with his following, which is why this enquiry has maybe come around.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Tamara Joy and Samuel Levi for comment.
Tamara responded to Daily Mail Australia, saying her current holiday in Bali was funded by herself, and suggested claims she is seeking only free getaways is false.
‘Not true. I’m in Bali on a family holiday for my brother’s wedding and it’s a itch (sic) deserved holiday for me, so no biting (sic) is for free.’
Remember her? Tamara was on the recent season of MAFS, and was paired with Dan Webb
