The Tim Tam Genie Is Back

Bachelor in Paradise contestant Apollo Jackson has been revealed as the new Tim Tam Genie in a fresh campaign that updates the classic commercials from the mid 90's.

And in what could be a sign of things to come for the likable Apollo, we're reminded that a young Cate Blanchett originally starred in a TV commercial for the biscuits when she was an aspiring star.

When she was still just 20 years old, Blanchett appeared in the biscuit ad alongside the 1990's version of the Genie.

In her version the genie offers Cate three wishes, and she famously chooses a never-ending packet of Tim Tams.

Blanchett of course has gone on to become one of the countries greatest actress' with seven Oscar nominations, and scoring two wins - Best Actress in 2012's Blue Jasmine and Best Supporting Actress in 2005's The Aviator.
