It’s always the quiet ones with slightly pink faces, you know what I mean? During Thursday night’s episode, we also watch on as the battle for Sophie’s heart ramps up, with two boys engaging in a petty stoush over a simple Ugg boot. For years, the humble Ugg has caused a lot of fiery debates. But those arguments are usually over whether a hung-over college girl wearing them with pyjamas should be allowed into nice brunch spots.
In series three Channel Ten’s reality dating show, the testosterone is high, the haircuts are cheap and the masculine behaviour is aggressive and arousing. But before the chaos unfolds, we’re allowed a moment to catch our breath and get to know the real Sophie. The camera pans across the shores of Australia’s iconic Gold Coast to find the divine Sophie Monk strolling casually along the damp sand in a Camilla kaftan.
“What am I going to do? I’m going to kill my career, kill me life. I’m going to embarrass my family and ruin my life,” she told news.com.au, recalling the moments before she met the 18 eligible men. But, as the boys began to arrive, Monk’s fear of ruining her life settled. She could see some potential keepers. And she could also see some nutbags. “There were a few guys I just went, ‘Yeah, no, I’m just going to keep you in for entertainment for me’,” she laughed. “Makes it fun for me!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
