Jamie Doran ‘secretly auditioned for Neighbours’ after leaving The Bachelorette – but ‘failed to impress casting agents’
According to he So Dramatic! podcast, the 40-year-old was so focussed on nabbing a role on the popular soap that he asked Channel 10 producers to ‘put in a good word for him’ prior to his audition.
Despite his striking good looks, extroverted personality and online fanbase, Jamie reportedly failed to impress Neighbours’ casting agents.

It’s likely Jamie was hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Bachelor star Tim Robards, who currently plays Pierce Greyson on Neighbours.
Former Bachelorette star Ivan Krslovic also enjoyed a fleeting appearance on Ramsay St in 2017, playing the role of a dancer.
Ivan appeared on Neighbours once again in 2019 for one episode, playing a stripper in a racy hens party scene.

Former Bachelorette star Sam Frost has also turned to soap acting, having starred as Jasmine Delaney on Home And Away since 2017.
It comes after Jamie was forced to deny rumours he was a paid actor on The Bachelorette last year.
Speaking to OK! magazine at the time, Jamie declared: ‘I’m no fake and I’m definitely not an actor.’

‘I’ve always been open and emotional in all aspects of my life. I’ve found myself in a competitive situation with a bunch of younger guys and my emotions have become amplified,’ he explained.
At the time, an insider who grew up with Jamie told NW magazine that the hunky firefighter was ‘obsessed with acting’ in high school.
‘A couple of our mutual mates bumped into him in early 2018 in Sydney and he told them he was on his way to an acting class,’ the source claimed.
