Married At First Sight's Amanda Starts A GoFundMe To Help Her Move To Queensland
| Last updated
It's hard being a former reality TV star in Australia - so hard, it seems, that you may have to ask your loyal followers for a bit of dosh to help you move house.
While the act of moving properties is a pain that really shouldn't be that hard, many Australians put up with it every year or two when they need a change of scenery.
But usually, we do it on our own and cop the cost of removalists or rental vans to transport all our stuff.
If you're a former Married At First Sight contestant, you can just ask people to do that for you. Amanda Micallef from the most recent season of the bizarre reality TV show has started a GoFundMe campaign to pay for the costs associated with her moving states.
She wrote on the fundraising site: "Thank you for taking the time to read this and even considering to make a generous donation. I have decided it's time to start a brand new life and move from Melbourne to the Gold Coast.
"This move won't be cheap with flights forboth [sic] myself and the cat which will need to be separated, hotel quarantine for me and pet hotel for Smokey, transporting my personal belongings along with my car across the borders and setting myself up in a new house.
"I would love your help to help me make this happen."
While people might find it baffling that anyone would want to give over their hard earned cash to someone just to move states, Amanda hasn't done too badly for herself so far. Her goal is $10,000 and at the time of writing she's already raised more than $5,000.
People have commented with messages of support after pledging some money to Amanda's cause, with one person saying: "You have helped me in so many ways. I wish you nothing but the best always."
Another added: "I hate that your [sic] leaving Melbourne but I'm HAPPY this is what you want and your [sic] going for it! Your [sic] a great soul love you."
Queensland introduced rules around crossing the border and hotel quarantine certainly is one of them. The kicker is that people have to foot the bill themselves.
But at the moment, the Sunshine State isn't allowing people from Victoria to come due to the second wave of coronavirus infections plaguing Melbourne and other areas. Maybe once the borders are relaxed Amanda will be able to head up.
