A man accused of fleecing more than $A16 million from Queensland Health is being promoted as a drawcard on an episode of New Zealand reality TV show The GC. Hohepa Morehu-Barlow, also known as Joel Barlow, was arrested in December and charged with defrauding the Australian government department while working there between 2007 and 2011. Before being arrested, Barlow lived an extravagant lifestyle and told people he was a wealthy Tahitian prince. A promotional video for this week's episode of The GC, a show which follows the lives of a group of Maori living in the Gold Coast - known as "Mozzies" - reveals one of the male characters is set up on a blind date with "a part-Maori Tahitian Prince".
