The Bachelorette may be done and dusted for 2018, but Ali Oetjen and her new beau Taite Radley are determined to stay in the public eye.

Rumours are buzzing that the couple, who met on the Network Ten reality dating show, are only in it for the social media likes and that their relationship is all for show in a bid to become Insta famous.

This was only confirmed when an alleged email from Taite to a talent manager was leaked. And to make matters worse, it was riddled with spelling errors. Awkward...

The Daily Telegraph's column Confidential reported that Taite emailed the high profile talent manager about ­representation for himself and Ali saying, "Being both into Heath (sic) and fitness, we're looking at getting some good management to help strengthen our brand."

After mentioning his and Ali's recent trip to North Queensland, he went on to say, "Across both our pages combined we had close to 2milion (sic) visits over 7 days."

"We are currently getting offers but are unsure how to handel (sic) them."

Needless to say, the anonymous recipient was not impressed.

"As a manager who has been in the game a long time, I was shocked at the poorly worded inquiry, which was riddled with spelling mistakes."

While plenty of Bachie alumni have signed on for big Instagram deals, this isn't the first time Taite has been called out for his sneaky antics.

Speaking to a local publication, an unnamed Bachelorette producer has spilled some juicy gossip claiming that Taite was a "fantastic manipulator" who just wanted to leave as the runner-up.

"He only ever wanted to make it to the final two. He made it very clear from the start that while he knew winning the show is good for your public profile, becoming the heartbroken reject who gets a second chance is even better," they claimed.

Woman's Day also reported that some fans claim Ali, 32, and Taite, 28, tried to fuel engagement speculation by being spotted looking at rings at a jewellery store.

They even reportedly checked out a local wedding chapel, talk about fame hungry!

This year's Bachelorette winner has been fame-hungry for a while as well, appearing on another reality dating show First Dates. Following that, Taite struck up a brief relationship with his co-star Dee Ngyuen and in a bombshell scoop from the Daily Mail he made it clear via text messages to Dee that he wanted to get his name out there.

Taite reportedly texted, "I have been looking online I would love to apply for a new other [shows]."

Dee replied saying she was considering applying for The Bachelor, to which Taite replied, "Hahaha I want to apply for that too hahaha how funny would that be."

In 2015, the reality star showed how driven he is to find fame that he posted on Facebook, "I give Facebook permission to spread my photos across the internet and make me famous. It's better to be famous than a nobody."

And it turns out even runner-up Todd had something to say about Ali and Taite's relationship and whether it was legit or not.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't question whether everything was authentic," Todd told Yahoo after recognising Ali had her heart set on 28-year-old Taite quite early on.

"The spark, it was just stronger with them."
