Byron Bay locals are fuming after Netflix announced it had commissioned a reality TV show chronicling the lives of “hot Instagrammers” in the area.

Some locals in Byron Bay have expressed their exasperation with an upcoming reality TV series, commissioned by Netflix, that will follow the lives of influencers in the area.

According to Netflix, the reality TV show ‘Byron Baes’ will feature “a feed of hot Instagrammers living their best lives, being their best selves, creating the best content.”

High school teacher, Nick, has been living in Byron for 25 years and thinks the series is “tasteless” and has the potential to turn Byron into “Jersey Shore”.
