Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac reveals he was once the ’43rd most eligible bachelor in Adelaide’ – and uploads his early 2000s glamour shoot to prove it

Sam Mac has shared a little-known fact about his rise to fame. 

Posting to Instagram on Tuesday, the Sunrise weatherman, 38, revealed that he was once named the ’43rd most eligible bachelor in Adelaide’ by a women’s magazine in the early 2000s. 

Sam uploaded a photo of his glossy magazine spread, which included a brooding glamour shot accompanied by a short interview.

Sam, who was 23 at the time and still working as a radio host, told the publication that his favourite film was Silence Of The Lambs and that his ideal woman was Australian actress Claudia Karvan. 

Bizarrely, when asked what his ‘best’ and ‘worst’ body parts were, Sam simply replied both times with ‘tongue’. 

Sam accompanied the post with a playful caption that poked fun at his decision to wear a shell necklace for his magazine photo shoot.

‘On first glance it may appear to be a mysteriously pensive pose… but I was actually just thinking about how timeless my men’s Hawaiian shell necklace was (in Adelaide, in winter),’ he mused. 

Sam completed his post with the hashtag ‘KarvanItUp’ – a cheeky homage to his former crush Claudia.

The comedian continued to make fun of the photo in his Instagram Stories, jokingly told fans: ‘I know some of you are mocking me, [saying], ‘Oh, whats with the shell necklace? You grew up in the suburbs of Adelaide!” 

‘Surf culture’s actually always been a part of who I am, OK?’ he said in mock outrage. 

He went on to jokingly proclaim his love for ‘fangin’ it on the frothy express’ – a colloquial term used to describe surfing.

Several Channel Seven stars have since poked fun at Sam on his Instagram page, with Sunrise’s Edwina Bartholomew commenting: ‘Did naming ‘Silence of the Lambs’ as your favourite movie land you any ladies?’ 

Elsewhere, The Morning Show’s Larry Emdur mused: ‘Nothing said ‘I’m sexy and I know it’ like a puku shell necklace.’

Samantha Armytage, who recently dispelled rumours of a feud with Sam Mac, simply commented, ‘tongue’ alongside a vomiting emoji.  

Born in Adelaide, Sam worked in radio and for Channel 10’s The Project before replacing Edwina Bartholomew as Sunrise’s roving weather presenter in early 2016.
