He also looks like Patrick Dempsey in an apron. Add the fact he’s a devoted single dad who can make even mashing potatoes sexy (watch his YouTube video) and has his own two-seater plane and it’s clear Australian celebrity chef Mike Ward is something special. So why hasn’t anybody in Australia heard of this cooking superstar? Well, the boy from Sydney’s northern beaches has built his successful career thousands of miles away in Canada.
Grace Rouvray, 27, who’s been in shows like House of Hancock has launched the rather aptly named 600 Bottles of Wine about the frustrations of single life. And forget Sex and the City, this show, in commute-friendly eight minute episodes, is funny AND realistic. From her checking as to what pants she’s wearing while he goes to fetch drinks, to one of her friends saying “f*** dating someone from Mosman” it’s very true, and it’s very Sydney.
Luke McLeod, 33, from Manly, was given the flick last night by Sophie Monk, despite the pair having a successful single date and him emerging as one of the favourites to win. He said he was disappointed, and thinks he wasn’t chosen because he wasn’t as open as some of the other men. “Looking back at things now, I honestly think it just came down to the type of personality and who I am,” he said. “I’m probably more reserved and shy, and a few of the guys were a lot more open.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
