& # 39; Everything I have worked on has been a failure & # 39 ;: Apollo Jackson of Bachelor in Paradise says he has been unemployed for almost a year – and cannot afford to visit a dentist or his phone bill to pay
Former Bachelor In Paradise star Apollo Jackson has revealed that he has been unemployed for almost a year after work & # 39; dried up & # 39; used to be.
In a candid Instagram post describing the dark side of reality TV fame, the 26-year-old magician revealed that he had to cancel an upcoming show after selling just 11 tickets.
He also admitted that he had only booked two paid concerts so far this year and is so broke that he cannot pay his phone bill or go to the dentist.

Apollo, whose real name is Jake Spence, explained that he & # 39; s hardly able to sleep at night because of a toothache, but he can't afford a specialist.
He wrote on Sunday: & # 39; It has been a worthless few months for me, entertainment has its ups and downs. The last few months have challenged me intensely, the work has dried up.
& # 39; I only had two paying shows this year, my entertainment and work phone plans have been closed in recent months. & # 39;
Cash band: the Bachelor In Paradise star admitted that he had to cancel his magic show after selling only 11 tickets, had only two paying appearances this year and was so tied up in cash that he couldn't pay his phone bill
& # 39; For six months I have sold out my stage show on only 11 tickets, so I had to cancel it. & # 39;
The magician then took the fans he had withstood during the training for mixed martial arts.
& # 39; Training for my first MMA fight tore the ligaments in both arms and tore one of the tendons to pieces & # 39 ;, he revealed.
& # 39; I could not afford a dentist. A nerve-damaged broken tooth didn't allow me to sleep most nights while I tried my ass to develop new skills and look for work, apply for jobs that I wasn't lucky with.
& # 39; Everything I had been working on for 8+ months had been rejected, stopped or failed. & # 39;
Difficult times: the 26-year-old added that he cannot afford a dentist to fix an exposed nerve in his tooth, which means that he hardly sleeps every night because of the pain. Depicted with girlfriend, Love Island star Edyn Mackney
Jackson, however, ended his message positively, but explained that despite the difficult times, he & # 39; has built a network of friends and support & # 39; and & # 39; has built up a few epic things with some extraordinary people & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I'm excited about what's around the corner and determined as always, take a look at this space! & # 39; he concluded.
Apollo accompanied the post with a photo of the quote: & # 39; There are difficult times to put you on the right track, or to test you and build yourself up in the person you need to be to reach. & # 39;
& # 39; The work has dried up & # 39 ;: he wrote on Instagram: & # 39; Everything I've been working on for 8+ months has been rejected, shut down or failed & # 39;
The reality star shot to fame appears on Sophie Monk & # 39; s season of The Bachelorette in 2017, before looking for love again the following year on the inaugural Bachelor in Paradise.
He was in a steaming love triangle with Elora Murger and Simone Ormesher in Fiji – and ended with a short relationship with Simone, who fell apart at a great distance.
Apollo is currently dating Love Island star Edyn Mackney – with whom he spent a romance in December.
