TV3 unaware of "Tahitian prince" connection on The GC

TV3 have said they were unaware that the “Tahitian prince” mentioned on The GC this week was accused of defrauding $16m from Queensland Health.

Earlier this week it was reported that Joel Morehu-Barlow would be mentioned on the reality show as a potential blind date for Alby Waititi.

He broadcaster has since said they didn’t know the man was accused of fraud as at the time of filming the allegations were unknown.

TV3 spokesperson Rachel Lorimer said that Barlow’s “appearance” was not organised by the producers of the show but that he was a “friend of a friend” of one of the characters.
