Bingle (born 1987, Cronulla, New South Wales) is an
Australian model who is best known for appearing in
the controversial 2006 Tourism Australia advertising
campaign So where the bloody hell are you?, where
she delivers the final line in the television commercial.
She is currently a contestant on the Nine Network's
Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice.
May 2006, Bingle took legal action against EMAP Australia,
who allegedly published photographs of the model without
her permission in the March 27 issue of Australian
lad's mag Zoo Weekly. Bingle claims that the magazine
defamed her by implying she consented to pose for
the magazine, which used photographs that were shot
when she was an unknown model. Credit: Wikipedia
