A slew of the Survivor star's famous friends reacted with glee to her unexpected venture.
The Project's Lisa Wilkinson commented: "Yes!!!!!!! 👏👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️," while model Steph Claire Smith wrote: "STOP IT! My dream."
AFL player Kaitlyn Ashmore also shared her support by posting: "😍😍😍."

Moana isn't the only celebrity to join the show's ranks.
Australian television staple Matty 'J' Johnson of The Bachelor fame also announced his role in Play School's line up.
The father-of-two took to Instagram earlier this month to share his excitement over landing the gig on ABC Kids.
"Today's gig might be the best one I've ever gotten.. finished product coming soon! #bucketlist" Matt captioned a photo from the Play School set.

Matt couldn't wipe the grin off his face as he posed with beloved toy Jemima behind the scenes.
He went one step further by sharing a series of videos from inside his changing room.
"This is my changeroom for this morning. I'm going to be lame, I can't tell you what I'm filming but I will say its something I've wanted to do for a very long time. It's very sick," he told the camera.
Matt then hilariously filmed himself chatting to Jemima - an iconic toy regularly featured in the series.
"I just want to say that I've worked wit a lot of professionals in the industry and I honestly thought you were one of the best. You did such a good job today," he told the rag doll.
After Moana and Matty's surprise announcements, who else will surprise us with a sneaky gig on Play School?
