According to The Daily Star, bosses reckon he'd prove to be entertaining in the Australian outback after he 'chickened out' of Bushtucker Trial-style challenges he was set for his new ITV2 travelogue.
During filming for Tom Daley Goes Global, he had to stay in a Thai beach hut - but soon escaped to a hotel when it was invaded by rats and spiders.
The diver - who won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics - also freaked out while eating scorpions and facing a sky dive.
"I was scared and nervous," commented Tom. "It was too much of a shock."
Since the London games, Tom has been best known for Splash!, the Saturday night ITV competition that sees celebrities learn how to dive.
Tom Daley Goes Global - which follows Tom and his best friend Sophie on a six-week backpacking tour of Australia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand and Thailand - airs on April 10th at 9.00pm on ITV2.
