‘I’m trying to diversify and think long-term as well,’ Jamie told Daily Mail Australia this week about his potential career move.

And fans may see more of the duo, after Channel Ten producers reportedly asked them to appear together on The Amazing Race Australia.

‘Love Island would be cool. I’ve had a few mates on there,’ he added.

On camera: 'It's funny because before I started making videos, I always had a passion for music, but didn't think I was good enough,' he told Daily Mail Australia (pictured on set of his new music video)

While Jamie has just released track Where U At?, he’s keen to keep his fans guessing as to his next career move.  

‘I want to get into different thing so my fans can stay on their toes and not know what to expect next,’ he said.

‘I don’t want to die one day and not have done what I’ve intended to do in my life,’ Jamie continued.

‘I’m someone that just shoots for what I want and you know things sort of like come out of that.’

Back in January, Jamie made headlines when he shared a video clip titled ‘How To Fly Business Class For Free’ to his 1.1million Instagram fans and almost 800,000 YouTube subscribers.

After arriving at his allocated seat on the plane, he insisted to his fellow passengers and airline staff that his Moon Boot can’t fit in the restricted leg room provided.

‘It’s not fitting,’ he said.

‘The boot doesn’t fit in here. Can I get another seat or something? I can’t fit here at all because of the boot. I’ve got a broken ankle.’

The air hostess said she had to get clearance from another staff member, but the bold ploy worked.

Jamie filmed himself enjoying the business class perks, including drinks, a fine dining menu, eye masks, extra leg room and comfy blankets and a pillow.

Jamie’s single ‘Where U at?’ is available to be streamed via Spotify now.
