As this picture reveals, model David Graham, who is the early favourite to win the sixth series of the reality show, nearly paid a fatal price for his lifestyle.

The Queensland farmer, 26, was brutally beaten by five men and left for dead in a pool of blood after leaving a popular Brisbane gay night spot in the early hours of January 22.

David was making his way to his ute parked in a side street when he was set upon by a gang of men throwing rocks and bottles.
