Rule 5 Saturday - Down Under with Lara Bingle

For this week's Rule 5 special we venture off to far Australia, where we find the lovely Lara Bingle:
Lara Worthington (née Bingle; born 22 June 1987) is an Australian fashion model and media personality. She is best known for appearing in the 2006 Tourism Australia advertising campaign So where the bloody hell are you? Her own reality television series, Being Lara Bingle, premiered on Network Ten in June 2012.
A living advertisement for Australia. I know I'd like to go back.
In May 2006, Worthington took legal action against EMAP Australia, who allegedly published photographs of the model without her permission in the 27 March 2006 issue of Australian men's magazine Zoo Weekly. Bingle claimed defamation by the manner in which the magazine published the photos.

On 2 March 2010, Worthington started proceedings to sue Brendan Fevola for breach of privacy, defamation and misuse of her image for the release of a nude photo in Woman's Day published on 1 March 2010. On 4 March 2010 it emerged that Worthington and her agent Max Markson had sold her story relating to this nude photo to the same magazine which had published the controversial photo, Woman's Day, for nearly A$200,000. This raised considerable controversy in that Bingle would discuss for large profit a matter she considered serious enough to sue over and from which she claimed to be hurt.
So we're not asking what she is, just how much she costs? Me, I don't care.
