Days before his next reality TV stint is set to be released, The Challenge Australia 2022’s Ciarran Stott has revealed his vow to join the “Sobriety Club”.

The star — who originally found fame on Angie Kent‘s season of The Bachelorette Australia in 2019 — took to Instagram on November 10 to update his fans on his journey.

“The biggest mistakes I’ve made in life come when I consume alcohol and drugs,” he admitted. “So I decided it was finally time to put a stop to it all. No more drinking! No more drugs!”

According to the 28-year-old, he turns into the “biggest muppet” and hurts “the people closest” to him “over and over again.”

“I probably should’ve realised this a few years ago, but it’s better late than never,” he said.

“It’s a long road ahead to becoming the best version of myself I can be. One for myself and two for my relationship and family. The support from my partner, family and friends is next to none, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you all.”

Ciarran Stott Reportedly Cheated on his Girlfriend with His The Challenge Australia Co-Star

Earlier this week, So Dramatic! revealed that the reality star had allegedly cheated on his girlfriend, Ruby Burciaga.

As reported in episode 228 of the So Dramatic! podcast, Ciarran hooked up with his Challenge co-star Love Island Australia’s Audrey Kanongora during filming.

According to a very well-placed Insider who is friends with one of the contestants, Ciarran was pretty remorseful after the incident.

“Apparently, he was really upset after and regretted it,” they dished. “It all plays out on the show.”

Another of Ciarran’s co-stars, Jack Vidgen, is also on a sobriety journey after a drug overdose nearly killed him.

Ciarran Stott Admitted He Should Never Have Done Bachelor In Paradise Due to Substance Abuse

Back in December 2021, Ciarran admitted he should have never gone on Bachelor In Paradise 20120 due to his toxic relationship with substances.

During an exclusive interview in episode 134 of the So Dramatic! podcast, the 27-year-old told host Megan Pustetto that “looking back on it”, he wishes he “never went on the old Paradise”.

“Everything was blowing up. I was going around Australia, I was partying, I was doing a lot of illegal substances,” he said at the time. “I was going a bit crazy, and I got caught like a deer in the headlights with all the — as such, you’d call it — fame.”

He added: “Getting flown around everywhere, partying and lots of drugs and women. I thought I was a rockstar.”

Plucked from obscurity in Darwin and into the spotlight during The Bachelorette, Ciarran became an overnight celebrity — something he did not expect nor know how to handle — admitting that he let the new lifestyle “get to his head”.

“I wasn’t treating myself with any respect, so I definitely wasn’t treating anybody else it either,” he confessed.

“So looking back on it, it was a bit stupid for what I was doing. That definitely hurt a lot of people in the making, but I’ve looked back on it.”
