Beau Ryan quits I’m a Celebrity
"My kids need their dad," says 10 host as he becomes the 4th ever to quit gruelling reality series.
Last night Beau Ryan quit I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, citing the emotion of missing family as too much to bear any longer.
The Amazing Race Australia host is the fourth person to quit the 10 series following Bernard Tomic, Anthony Mundine and Mel Buttle in previous seasons.
“I travel a lot and I work a lot. I remember growing up, there’s a guy that lived two houses down for me and his dad was always away for work and I don’t want to be that Dad. My kids need their dad. My wife needs a husband. And I need to find myself back, at the moment,” he told his camp mates.
“I got voices in my head saying, ‘Don’t be a pussy. Don’t give up. ‘ All these things I’ve been taught since I’ve been young,” he continued.
“I come in here to prove something to myself. I can’t gain anything else from this show. So call it what you like, but my journey is over. I love you guys.
“And I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here…..”
There were reports Ryan was not happy about being paid less than ex-AFL coach Nathan Buckley, which he later denied. It isn’t clear if his appearance fee was part of a 10 network deal, after no season of Amazing Race could be filmed last year.
But his departure kicks off an exit every episode now with 6 cast to be left when the series wraps on air on Sunday January 30.
