He hit headlines around the world after hosting an out-of-control party at his parents' house in Melbourne in January 2008.
And while Corey Worthington parlayed his instant fame into a stint on Big Brother, he's been out of the public eye for much of the past decade.
No, however, the 26-year-old is set to make a career comeback as a VERY unlikely star on a reality show few would have anticipated seeing him in.
He's set to star in WHAT?! Notorious party animal Corey Worthington is set to return to small screens as the surprise star in a VERY popular reality program
According to The Herald Sun, Corey will be returning to screens on Channel Nine's top-rating reality franchise, Australian Ninja Warrior.
While Nine have not officially confirmed any contestants for its upcoming series, set to air early next year, the publication claims a workmate of the party boy let word slip on Facebook.

'Corey Worthington …. He was on and in December he will be on Ninja Warrior. good luck mate, have fun, u got this mate,' Corey's colleague reportedly wrote on the social media site.
Many may have doubted that the pimple faced party animal would go on to become a super-strong athlete.
But Corey has been honing his physique in the gym in recent years, showing off the results on his Instagram page.

Talk of Corey's appearance on Ninja Warrior comes just months after rumours there would be a reunion party to mark ten years since his out-of-control bash.
A Facebook event page sets the date as January 8, 2018, and plans to rage on until 3am in the same southeast Melbourne suburb of Narre Warren.

'As I'm sure you're well aware, we're approaching 10 years since that rager at Corey's place. Thought we could all reunite for a little catch up,' it read.
'Would love to see how we all are, so feel free to bring your partner and/or kids along. It'll be BYO again and if you could each bring a plate of something as well that would be fantastic.'
The event appeared to have the blessing of the now-26-year-old Mr Worthington, who shared the event on his own profile, adding: 'Who is ready to party?!'
