Sophie Monk is one of the most recognised faces in the Australian entertainment industry.
And last month, the Love Island Australia host revealed her favourite slang term from Down Under ahead of the show’s premiere in the UK.
In an interview with ITV2, the 40-year-old beauty said: ‘My favourite Australian slang word would have to be bogan.’

She continued: ‘And if you don’t know what that is Google it because it’s pretty much me. I’m a bogan.’
Bogan describes an ‘unsophisticated person regarded as being of low social status,’ according to the Oxford Dictionary.
Sophie, who has hosted season one and two of the show, also revealed what makes her version different to Love Island UK and Love Island USA.
‘I’d have to say it’s the down-to-earth, self-deprecating humour,’ she explained.

Love Island Australia premiered in the UK last month to fill a void for devastated fans after the British series was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Following the Australian version of the summer smash hit’s premiere, baffled British fans expressed their shock over the ‘raunchier’ antics and called for subtitles due to their inability to understand ‘bogan’ slang.
Their familiarity with the format couldn’t prepare them for the first season of Love Island Australia, which premiered Down Under back in 2018 and has been airing in the UK since June 15.

‘Hideaway in the first week? Yo. Australia is different,’ one fan tweeted, while another exclaimed: ‘Wait! Eden and Erin had sex?! #LoveIslandAUS.’
A third fan joked: ‘God I need to go on love island just to fall in love after 2 minutes #LoveIslandAU.’
‘I thought Aussie English was like British I thought wrong #LoveIslandAu,’ one viewer admitted on Twitter.
