He was the surprise stand-out in this year's series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and the nation was ready to fall in love with him all over again when whispers started to circulate that he'd been approached to be the The 2018 Bachelor Australia babe.
But Kris Smith has a message to send loud and clear - he's officially off the market and happy with his new girlfriend and personal trainer Sarah Boulazeris.
On Monday night, the father-of-one posted a very loved-up selfie that would give Bachie dates a run for their money.
The model uploaded a happy snap of the pair enjoying a romantic picnic at Cremorne Point in Sydney.
"She’s got the lot. #picnic #sunset," the 39-year-old penned.
Sarah also took to Instagram Stories to show off their "cute" afternoon soiree.
Shortly after sharing the sneek peek of their date, Kris' photo was inundated with sweet messages.
"Love how happy you look," Kris' former Daily Edition co-host Sally Obermeder wrote.
"What a couple," another friend commented.
However some fans were disappointed that Dannii Minogue's ex wouldn't be making a return as The Bachelor.
":( I guess this means he won't be The Bachelor next year," one upset fan said, while another simply added a sad face emoji.
WATCH: Kris and Sarah are loved up at the races. Post continues...
On Monday, NW reinvigorated a fresh wave of Bachie chatter after they reported the star had been pursued by Ten off the back of the success of Sophie Monk's series.
According to the mag, money is no issue and they have offered him a generous package.
"They've obviously spoken about it - he's already done I'm A Celebrity, he's dated one of the network's staffers and he's best mates with Sasha Mielczarek [former Bachelorette winner],' revealed their source. He's just not allowed to discuss anything publicly," a source said.
NW claim that despite his previous denial last week, Kris is playing it coy just like predecessor Matty J did!
Similarly, Matty J was said to be dating model Nathalie Darcas before reportedly breaking up with her to star on the dating show.
The couple have only just gone public, debuting their romance at Stakes Day in Melbourne over the weekend.
So for now, only time will tell where Kris' heart lies.
Here's a hot tip: We think you look pretty chuffed with Sarah and she seems like a keeper, so spare yourself the time and mental energy of dating over 20 women and hold onto her!
