Comedian Nikki Osborne reveals how she raised $10,000 to save the koalas on her first day on OnlyFans – but insists she won’t do ‘porn’
Comedian Nikki Osbourne has revealed she made $10,000 on her first day on adukt platform OnlyFans.
The Sunshine Coast based comedian, 40, set up a profile under her alter ego ‘Bush Barbie’, with proceeds going towards saving koalas in the Northern Rivers.
She said she decided to make the account after seeing an Instagram story of women desperately trying to relocate koalas that were being poisoned by toxic floodwater.

‘I think it’s the new form of crowd-funding,’ she told the Courier Mail.
The I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here star added that while insurance companies had people’s backs, nobody ‘seemed to piper up about the impact of wildlife’ and that she ‘wants to make sure the money goes to a hands-on company’.
‘I don’t want to waste my rig on a charity that burns the dough in administration and fancy shindigs,’ she added.

Nikki also said her goal is to raise $50,000 in the first week, with some of her requests so far being asked to take nude photos and being offer $1,000 to watch a sex act.
‘It’s all meant to be funny for a good cause. It’s not like I’ve gone on MAFS to launch a career in porn – but good on them,’ she joked. ‘What’s funny is koalas have a chlamydia problem so it’s kind of poetic to raise funds via Only Fans.’
She plans to keep the account going for a month, and will hand over a cheque to her chosen charity on July 17.
Nikki went topless in a during her Channel 10 stand-up show in October – hours after facing backlash for comparing Covid vaccine mandates to rape
The comedian is no stranger to taking her kit off and in October appeared topless on Channel 10’s stand-up comedy show Just For Laughs: Uncut.
Nikki, who hosts the late-night program, raised eyebrows as she closed the show with a ‘nude’ scene filmed in a bar – her bare breasts pixelated as she addressed the camera.
Standing with a whisky glass in one hand, the star declared: ‘Well, I promised there’d be nudity… and this is why they pay me the big bucks.’
‘We’ll see you next time on Just For Laughs: Uncut,’ she said, breaking into laughter.
Nikki faced backlash last year after she shared a tasteless meme on Instagram.

Her since-deleted post showed convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein next to actress Lindsay Lohan, alongside the caption: ‘The original no jab, no job.’
The meme was in reference to Covid-19 vaccine mandates, and compared them to Weinstein’s ‘casting couch’ crimes and the wider Hollywood practice of actresses having sex with influential producers in exchange for film roles.
The disgraced American film producer is serving a 23-year sentence after a jury found him guilty in March 2020 of rape and sexual assault.
