& # 39; The profile on Grindr is not mine! & # 39; My Kitchen Rules star Romel Kouyan denies using the gay hook-up app because he is the target of a fake profile in Sydney
My Kitchen Rules finalist Romel Kouyan has claimed to have turned to the gay hook-up app Grindr in an attempt to find love with & # 39; non scene, laid back guys & # 39 ;.
After NW magazine published screenshots of a profile on the app with the face of Romel, the 42-year-old refused to use the platform.
& # 39; It's so stupid – the profile on Grindr isn't mine, & # 39; he said to Daily Mail Australia on Monday.

Romel continued: & # 39; I have known the profile for a few weeks.
& # 39; A friend had seen it and made a screenshot and sent it to me – he reported the profile and they deleted (my) photo. & # 39;
The star, who appeared on the Seven show with friend Ibby Moubadder earlier this year, revealed the only reason why the profile could not be his.

If he turned to Grindr for online dating, Romel said he & # 39; would not be stupid enough to use a real photo of himself & # 39 ;.
He added that he & # 39; would have a blank profile to remain anonymous and choose whom he would choose to chat with & # 39; – instead of having a picture of his face that everyone can see.
The star added that it is no shame to use online dating apps and insist: “I know that time-poor professionals find dating apps easier & # 39 ;.

Romel and friend Ibby just missed the win of this year's series My Kitchen Rules for champions Matt and Luke in April.
When they later spoke with Daily Mail Australia, the couple revealed that they had inflated no less than $ 30,000 of their own money while filming the show.
After spending all of the budget Seven had received for their extravagant Instant Restaurants, they put their hands in their pockets to move forward.
