Jennifer Hawkins will happily freelance in television when her contract with Seven expires at the end of the month.
The former Great Outdoors host is said to be disillusioned with Seven after it halved her salary in 2008 and left her with little opportunities in recent times.
Her last ongoing hosting gig was Make me a Supermodel in 2008.
Seven executives were said to be in a state of turmoil as they tried to find a project that might keep her.
Meanwhile, a Nine network insider said there was no plan yet to offer Hawkins a contract, but that she would be involved in a number of projects.
Her manager, Sean Anderson, confirmed that in 2011 she was looking to work in TV on a freelance basis, subject to her schedule.
