You won’t find Irena Srbinovska sharing any sponsored posts anytime soon, despite now boasting 109,000 loyal followers.

After Instagram started approving verified blue ticks for several of Locky Gilbert’s contestants last week, fans were stumped to discover Irena didn’t get one – despite winning the show.

And during a little chat with Daily Mail Australia on Monday, she said there’s a perfectly good reason why her profile hasn’t been verified.

Despite being famous, she’ll be returning to work as a nurse very soon

‘I haven’t even applied for it. I don’t really care about it. I’m not about being an influencer, just about being real,’ she said.

In order to get a blue tick, you must click to apply for one, upload a copy of your ID and Instagram will then judge if you’re enough of a public figure to warrant it, or reject your application.

At present, Bella Varelis, Bec Cvilikas and Laura Calleri are the only three stars from this year’s Bachelor to get the coveted blue tick.

Do you reckon Irena’s comments were a dig at former bestie Bella? Or at reality stars in general?

Despite now being famous and in the public eye, Irena recently confirmed she’ll be returning to work as a nurse once she moves to Perth.

Side note: We see nothing wrong with reality stars becoming influencers after their shows wrap, make that money while you can, guys!

Most reality shows only pay stars around $100-a-day during filming, which is barely enough to cover their expenses back home, so they gotta make costs back somehow.

If you ask me, I think Bella is still reeling from her huge disappointment of losing locky to her competition Irena..even during the bachelor she came across as jealous and insecure…who cares about a ‘tick’ when Irena gets the real deal…and what’s more. Shes saving lives, how real is that!…Irena obviously doesn’t have time to stop and think about the trivial things. She won her man, now it’s back to business.

Ridiculous…getting a blue tick just means you are a wanna be…which is what Bella n Bec are…they would not be friends obviously if either had taken Lockys heart.
Who wants to be a wanna be with a blue tick when you’re happy in love…not Irena

Hurry up Locky, propose to Irena. She can wear something blue on her wedding day. Maybe blue sapphire earrings? Or a big blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring? Who needs a blue tick. 💍👰🍹🤵

Maaaybe Irena was just there to find love and has no interest in being a wanky public figure? Those blue ticks really mean nothing if they’re giving them out to reality tv stars 🙄

Except the blue tick isn’t for “influencers”. Its to verify highly public profiles are actually belonging to those they supposedly portray, ensuring viewers know who is legit and who is a fan/imitation account.

So if Irena is about being “real”, she seems to have missed the point completely. Ironic

Lol,
YOU are missing the point. Irena says in the article, she’s keeping it real. It doesn’t matter what the ‘blue tick’ means, she’s busy working on the front line. She knows she’s legit and obviously has better things to do with her time than count her fans. More importantly, she says, she hasn’t applied for the, ‘ blue tick’.

You’ve got it wrong and you’ve obviously missed the point. Irena is about keeping it ‘real’ and hence will be going back to work as a nurse. She hasn’t applied for the blue tick and has no plans to do so. The blue tick is voluntary and optional. Given that no other contestant on these reality shows has NEVER knocked back the blue tick and are quick to apply for it, we seem to be stumped when someone doesn’t actually want it!

Amen to that! I take my hat off to Irena for keeping it real which is refreshing these days. Can’t stand these ex reality moles pimping themselves for a damn blue tick. How pathetic that this is what people have stooped to? Having all your $hit laid bare on national TV, having public scrutinise you and for what? the sake of an Insta tick? P.S Bec wearing those daisy dukes are not very flattering.

They’re pathetic right? Why would anyone want to live that life, not contributing anything of tangible worth to society?? It’s a setup for failure, when they eventually wake up one day and they’re a nobody, with no real skill set except mooching around like sloths, waiting for the next gig or sponsorship? Yeah, nah.

Its not a swipe. She’s a nurse for goodness sake. Tertiary educated professional.
