Bachy’s Jimmy & Holly Have Dragged Reality Stars Who Join OnlyFans
The winning couple from the 2021 season of The Bachelor, Jimmy Nicholson and Holly Kingston, have taken to social media to add their two cents on the growing popularity of OnlyFans among reality stars. Alrighty then!
The couple’s statements follow Married at First Sight couple Olivia Frazer and Jackson Lonie joining the subscription platform in recent weeks. Holly and Jimmy posted on Holly’s Instagram Stories last night to address when the couple will join OnlyFans, a question they claim has plagued them. “We get this question a lot and we figured now is a good time to just answer it once and for all,” Holly said.
(Sidenote: who the hell is asking them to join OnlyFans?! Not me. Is this the new “everyone is asking me about my skincare routine” that influencers often peddle out? I hope not.)
Anyways, I digress. Holly continued, “No judgement to anyone who does have OnlyFans, but I think there has been a little bit of a trend in people coming off reality shows and leveraging that degree of fame to then sell nudes online.”
That sounds an awful lot like judgement to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

But if you thought Holly’s stance was a bit harsh, please lower your expectations for ol’ mate, Jimmy. “My problem with it is people saying they’re doing it because it’s female empowerment or male empowerment, I think that’s a load of sh*t personally,” Jimmy began.
“I think you need to be a role model to future generations… if you want to celebrate male or female empowerment, start a charity, donate to breast cancer awareness, prostate cancer awareness, do these things.”
This statement is baffling on multiple levels. Firstly, it assumes that reality stars have the financial means to just start a charity. What, like it’s hard? Secondly, it’s counterintuitive to suggest that these stars donate to charities WITHOUT also having a means to make money. OnlyFans can offer a fast income for reality contestants who often struggle to go back to regular jobs.
Finally, it’s pretty narrow-minded to suggest that people on OnlyFans also can’t pursue charitable endeavours simultaneously. But apparently in Jimmy’s world, OnlyFans creators never also give their time and money to charity.
Holly doubled down on Jimmy’s statement by captioning their response: “Our view: normalising selling naked photos on the internet doesn’t equal male/female empowerment.”
I reckon normalising being a smug couple casting judgements on other’s people’s personal choices ain’t particularly empowering either.
