The Bachelorette star Bill Goldsmith shows off a ‘fake vaccine passport’


A Z-list reality star seemingly claimed he’d obtained ‘fake vaccine passport’ this week – only to backtrack by saying it was all a ‘joke’.

Bill Goldsmith, who has shared countless posts questioning the Covid-19 pandemic, had boasted on Instagram earlier this month of finding ‘a doctor’ who he claimed was prepared to give him a ‘fake vaccine passport for a small fee’.

And on Monday, the 32-year-old star of The Bachelorette uploaded a screenshot of what appeared to be his immunisation history on the Medicare app stating he had received two does of the Pfizer vaccine.

This is despite the fact he’s claimed multiple times he won’t be getting the shot.

Goldsmith quickly deleted the post, and when contacted for comment by Daily Mail Australia said the forged certificate wasn’t meant to be taken seriously.  

‘I took a screenshot and changed the name on it as a joke,’ he said.

Goldsmith’s fake certificate included a number of obvious signs it wasn’t a genuine document.

Most notably, part of the watermark had been clumsily erased where Goldsmith’s name was written in the top left-hand corner. 

The font and print quality of his name was also clearly different to the text on the rest of the certificate.

Further, the government’s official Covid digital certificates feature the recipient’s name entirely in capital letters, so Goldsmith’s should read: ‘BILL M GOLDSMITH.’

But on the forgery his first name was written partially in lowercase letters (‘Bill’) – another clear indication the document was not valid. 

There were other obvious issues with the layout of the certificate, as the document number should have gaps in between every four digits.

Goldsmith’s fake contained no gaps in the document number. 

His certificate also stipulated he was born in 1985, which would make him 36, even though his official Bachelorette bio indicates he is 32

The word ‘vaccination’ rather than ‘vaccine’ should be used at the top of the document, too. This was not the case in Goldsmith’s certificate.

It comes after Goldsmith sparked controversy in June when he dangerously joked he wanted to illegally buy a ‘vaccine passport’ in order to avoid getting the Covid jab.

At the time, Goldsmith – who has no medical qualifications – suggested people might able to acquire the passport from the ‘black market’. 

He toyed with the idea flouting the proposed rules after a follower on Instagram asked: ‘What if you need the Vax to travel?’

‘I’ll buy a boat and sail to where I want to go haha,’ he responded.

‘Nah there will be a black market for false vaccine passports or whatever you want to call them.’

In July last year, he also incorrectly claimed the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine could be a cure for Covid-19 and was a ‘cheaper’ alternative to a vaccine – even though there is no scientific evidence to support this.

In the comments section beneath the post, one follower caught Goldsmith’s attention when they said they’d heard scientists ‘are going to put 5G in the vaccine’.

‘Where’d you hear that?’ Goldsmith replied, which prompted the follower to write: ‘I think someone posted it on Insta.’ 

This was clearly enough solid evidence to convince Goldsmith, who went on to ask the fan: ‘What’s your opinion on it?’

‘Not thrilled,’ the follower responded, adding: ‘It’s exactly what Bill Gates wants.’

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia at the time, Goldsmith said he wasn't 'claiming anything' but simply 'asking questions'

Goldsmith, who seemingly agreed with these concerns, replied: ‘Oh yeah it’s f**ked hey.’  

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia at the time, Goldsmith said he wasn’t anti-vaccine but was simply ‘asking questions’.

However, he did bizarrely say he was opposed to the 5G cellular network.

‘I’m not sure there is a direct link between 5G and Covid-19,’ he said.

‘All I know is that never in the history of humanity have so many people had so many rules and restrictions on how they can live.’

The notion that mobile network technology has anything to do with Covid is both preposterous and scientifically bankrupt. 

Most recently, Goldsmith uploaded an Instagram post on Tuesday offering to help ‘friends’ Victoria and NSW escape lockdown by offering them a place to live in Queensland.

‘I have a spare house as of this weekend in Burleigh Waters, any of my friends down in Vic or NSW you are still allowed to move interstate through lockdown,’ he wrote. 

Goldsmith said he was happy to help interstate travellers exploit this so-called loophole.

‘Happy to write and prove whatever is needed to get you out…’ he wrote.
