Channel 9 are fielding fresh claims this morning that Troy is a paid actor!
It certainly makes sense for some of his strange antics.
The claim comes from Ashley herself who said on a recent Virgin flight 'Troy didn't apply for the show but was selected via an agency'.
Ashley supposedly said to a fan of the show producers made the couple stay together because Troy was so entertaining on TV, despite the fact they were obviously mismatched. 'Ashley said they weren't going to get rid of a main "character" early, so she had to play the game.'
Channel 9 is dismissing the claim, stating everyone on the show applied to be there.
