Former Miss Universe Australia, Jesinta Campbell joined Triple M's Grill Team, having returned from Movie World and Wet'n'Wild on the Gold Coast, filming the latest episode of Getaway, which she does on Channel Nine.
Swans player Buddy Franklin is her boyfriend, who is one of the biggest AFL stars in the game but also has a reputation for being a bit of a player.
So we couldn't help but ask what's he's like? Is he different when he's at home?
"I think the way the media portrays him is a bit unfair at times and I think people like to glamourise things and make things bigger than what they are," said Jesinta.
"He's just a normal, everyday guy. He just loves playing footy."
How does Jesinta deal with the media scrutiny that comes with dating one of the biggest footy players in Australia?
"Obviously it's hard when you're reading things in the paper and you actually know the real story and they [the media] make it out to be something completely different so… I'm not going to stand here and say 'it's easy'," she said
"It's the industry we're in so you just got to take it in your stride.
"Me and him and his family and my family know the situation and I think it's just unfortunate the paper likes to blow these things out of proportion."
Getaway is on Saturday 5.30pm on Channel Nine.
