Bachelorette Australia: Bachie Adam Todd leaves no stone unturned in date with Elly Miles


He may be a self-confessed nerd who studies rocks for a living but The Bachelorette’s Adam Todd thinks that will set him apart from the sea of hipsters in the mansion.

“I’m a bit of an oddball, I do things a bit differently,” he told AAA.

His alternative charm has hit where it matters most and Todd, 24, who grew up in Victoria before moving to Perth scored that all important one on one time with Elly Miles.

“I’m a bit of a shy guy and to get away from the big personalities in the house, that’s my chance to get that quality time with her,” Todd said.

Shy or otherwise, in true Bachie form, it wasn’t long before he showed he takes a holistic approach to geology in the form of his rock-hard abs.

“This is a massive opportunity that I’ve been given so I’m going to use that time to show her who I am and ask her those big relationship questions,” he said.

He admits, after their hot date at the zoo, he’s falling for Miles.

“There’s definitely something building with Elly and I want to keep working on that connection,” he said.

“I came into this … to find love … I really want to give it a fair crack.”

Bradley shared the exciting news with her Instagram followers on Tuesday with behind-the-scenes video of the former rugby league bad boy being interviewed for TV.

Making Todd Mall bright again


By ERWIN CHLANDA

Up to 20 big, colourful works of street art will soon counter the Mall’s graveyard atmosphere of empty and shuttered shops, now including Inside Ormiston Gorge by Cecilia Price, adorning the facade Tourism Central Australia (pictured).

The artist, who has been a resident of Alice Springs for almost 30 years, has travelled extensively throughout remote Australia and developed her artistic skills to embrace watercolours, oils, and a wide range of other mediums, says Red Hot Arts in a media release.

Her painting joins the likes of Mervyn Rubuntja, Melanie Gunner and Alison Hittmann in brightening the streets of Alice Springs as part of the Revitalise Alice Street Art Project.

Alice Springs is already home to over 60 public artworks shown in an interactive Public Art Map plotting the locations of paintings, sculptures and installations across town.

Todd Sampson Body Hack best travel stories


When it comes to immersing himself in different cultures, Body Hack host Todd Sampson has no limits.

I got my first passport… At 17 (my Canadian one). I got my Australian passport at 30.

My first holiday memory is… When I was a kid we couldn’t afford to have holidays as Mum and Dad worked year-round. My first memory of an actual “holiday” was at university. I went to Mexico City for a week and got robbed at gunpoint just outside a bank.

I’ve been to… 39 countries. I’ve travelled to 19 in the past four years filming Body Hack.

My favourite place in Australia is… Ningaloo Reef, WA. I’ll never forget swimming with the whale sharks with my young girls.

The place I’d love to visit in Australia is… The Simpson Desert. It’s one of the harshest places on earth, with most of it uninhabited. My kids would love it.

The thing about travel I’ve missed during Covid… Seeing the girls adjusting to a foreign land.

If there was a Covid vaccine and borders lifted tomorrow, the first place I’d go is... Home to visit my dad in remote Canada. Then Africa with the family.

The place I’ve visited most often is… Africa. It’s the womb of humanity. I’m trying to get the dust of Africa in my girls’ shoes.

The place that most surprised me was... Mosul, Iraq. Completely destroyed by war, but totally alive with culture. I filmed an episode of Body Hack there during the war.

The place that didn’t live up to expectations… Hawaii. I don’t get it. It’s like an over-commercialised beach holiday and, considering we have the best beaches in the world, it makes no sense to me. That and I don’t like water.

The advice I’d give to young travellers is… Never argue with someone carrying a gun and take probiotics a week before and after every trip

My holidays are mostly devoted to… Adventure. Last year we went to Namibia and stayed in a lodge in the middle of nowhere. One night our tent was surrounded by lions. I think they’d seen my young kids earlier in the day and were coming back for dinner. It was scary exciting.

The sickest I’ve been on holiday… I’ve never been sick while travelling.

The most interesting person I’ve met on a plane is… When I flew to climb Mount Everest, I sat next to a monk who had just come out of20 years of isolation in the mountains.

Mosul

The place that most surprised Todd was Mosul in Iraq. “Completely destroyed by war, but totally alive with culture,” he says.

The souvenir I always buy… Neomie, my wife, buys local dish towels (weird, I know).

The worst thing that happened to me while travelling… I had frog poison burnt into my arm as part of a ritual deep in the Amazon for Body Hack. That little green frog nearly killed me.

The best/weirdest things I’ve eaten while travelling was… Baboon. They’re 97 per cent human, which, from a psychology point of view, made it taste weird. I also watched a cannibal eat a human skull in India (in a previous episode of Body Hack). I chose not to join in on that one.

My go-to dish for room service is… Fish and vegetables.

The best hotel I’ve stayed in… Ngorongoro Crater Lodge in Tanzania. Elephants ate from our window while a Maasai warrior stood guard.

The travel tips I’d share are… Carefully observe the locals. The answers to most questions can be found in them.

Travel has taught me… Acceptance and non-judgement of that which is foreign.

AFL trade news, Western Bulldogs rumours, whispers 2020: Todd Goldstein, Ben McEvoy, Daniel Talia


The Western Bulldogs must target a ruckman and a key defender from rival clubs to fill two crucial list chasms, according to Herald Sun reporter Jon Ralph. And three veterans could be the answer.

Minutes after his side’s thrilling elimination final loss to St Kilda on Saturday night, Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge hinted his club wouldn’t be “idle” during the trade period, suggesting his best 22 would “change significantly” come Round 1 next season.

Beveridge said too many players were below their best against the Saints – something they couldn’t afford to do considering the “vulnerabilities we have in our side”.

The coach highlighted that “our forwards didn’t get ourselves into the right spot and didn’t compete well enough in the air”, while he added ruckman Tim English was” still a few years off his absolute best” as he pondered whether the idea of acquiring a rival, ready-made ruckmen would be wise.

Paddy McCartin’s return, Todd Goldstein

The news from all around the league continues to roll in surrounding stars of the game and just where their futures may lie.

Keep up to date with all the latest news right here.

RETURNING STAR IN ‘ELITE SHAPE’

Former number one draft pick Paddy McCartin is ready to lace the boots back up and get back onto an AFL roster.

McCartin walked away from the game and has spent almost two years on the sidelines after recording 35 games over five seasons due to repeated concussions.

But after being medically cleared in late 2019, McCartin has stepped up his efforts to return to the game and Melbourne great says he looks like he could comfortably walk into a playing spot.

“Having seen him last week, he looks unbelievable,” Lyon said on SEN Breakfast.

“Paddy has always looked a bit bigger than what you’d want him to be as an AFL player and that happens when you’re a bigger lad coming in and you don’t know how to train hard and all that sort of stuff.

“He looks like an elite AFL footballer. He’s slimmed down, he looks hard, he’s really lean and he’s worked his backside off. If he gets a second chance I think he’s beautifully positioned for it.”

Essendon legend Tim Watson suggested his second chance was set to come with brother Tom at the Sydney Swans.

“Paddy McCartin, I keep hearing this, that he is going to resume his career, he’s passed all his medical testing that he needed to, and he’ll be playing at Sydney,” he said.

GOLDY TO STICK WITH NORTH

One of the best ruckman in the league over the past five seasons is keen to be known as a one-club player when it’s all said and done.

North Melbourne’s Todd Goldstein was linked with a move to Geelong at the end of last season before putting pen to paper on a three-year deal with North.

As the club goes through a major clean-out after finishing the 2020 season second last on the ladder, several big name players have been linked with departing.

Goldstein’s future came under a cloud with many believing he could land elsewhere ahead of the 2021 season, but those doubts have been cast aside.

“I can tell you that Todd Goldstein is determined to play out his career at North Melbourne and stay loyal to the Kangaroos,” Sam Edmund said on SEN Breakfast.

“Ben Brown and Shaun Higgins will be playing elsewhere next year, but the influential big man decided several weeks ago that he wanted to stay with the Roos.

“That has since been franked by club chiefs who say they have no intention of trading the 32-year-old.”

NRL 2020: New Zealand Warriors, Jazz Tevaga, Refereeing decisions, Round 19 news, Todd Payten


It was the fairytale story the entire NRL community got behind.

If they weren’t already, the Warriors became everyone’s second favourite team in 2020.

With 11 players sidelined for the rest of the season and captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck forced to watch his youngest son crawling for the first time on his phone, it’s easy to see why that was the case.

NRL 2020: North Queensland Cowboys, Michael Morgan, news, position, Todd Payten, Jake Clifford


Michael Morgan might be the 2017 Dally M halfback of the year, but NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler believes the Cowboys captain is better suited to a different position.

The halves and fullback positions have proved a sticking point for the Cowboys this season, with injuries and poor form meaning a full seven players have been rotated across that trio of positions.

And with Todd Payten coming in as North Queensland coach for 2021, Fittler claims the new mentor should shift the versatile Maroon to the centres.
