The flirty captions shared alongside the snaps include ‘It’s Friday – let’s play’, ‘time to get wild’, and ‘meet you at the bar’.
The MAFS bride, who is married to personal trainer Shannon Adams on the hit Channel Nine show, first appeared in a post on the club’s page in September 2021.
It showed her leaning against a stripper pole as she posed on the stage alongside 10 other scantily-clad women.

The last featured photo was uploaded in July last year – just weeks before filming began for the series’ 10th season.
‘Caitlin has always been self-conscious and really struggled with self image,’ a friend told Daily Mail Australia.
‘She decided she wanted to push herself out of her comfort zone to grow and put herself out there in a way she never thought she would. Putting her insecurities on display challenged those negative thoughts about her.
‘There was nothing really to it. It was just a job – she drove in, did her job, drove home and once she felt she pushed herself out of her comfort zone enough, she quit.’
Showgirls is a strip club in Brisbane. Located in Queens Mall, the venue offers private laps dances, VIP party and Bucks party packages and onstage shows.
Caitlin’s stripper past comes as her disastrous marriage to Shannon, 30, plays out on TV.
Last Thursday’s episode saw the Brisbane native tie the knot with the personal trainer.
The groom quickly caused a stir with his less-than-romantic remarks about his new bride.

At the ceremony, the fitness fanatic called his bride ‘a piece’.
‘First impressions, she is a cracker. She’s good on me eye,’ he told cameras.
‘[She’s got] really big, nice eyes. I liked her eyes without sounding too sleazy, but she’s got a bit of a rig on her too, she’s a piece.’
Caitlin’s impressive ink collection, which includes several butterflies on her hands, caught his eye as the couple exchanged vows.
‘Cheeky tatts on ya,’ Adams remarked as he grabbed her hand.
‘Nice eyes on you,’ Caitlin snapped back, prompting Shannon to turn around to his family and say, ‘She’s alright. She’s cheeky’.

But it hasn’t taken long for their marriage to fall apart, with Shannon admitting to his bride he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend on Tuesday’s episode of the show.
Caitlin busted Shannon taking a sneaky call in the apartment, and when she confronted him, found out he was talking to his ex.
An emotional Shannon then admitted he still had feelings for her, and that he didn’t want to lead either of them on.

‘You were on the phone to your ex, so I just want to check where your head is at and where we are at moving forward,’ she asked him.
‘I honestly don’t know,’ a confused Shannon replied.
Caitlin then admitted she had plenty of concerns about their future together, including not knowing how Shannon felt about her after the photo ranking challenge when he placed her third after contestants Melinda Wills and Claire Nomarhas.
‘I hate the fact that I say this but I still love her,’ he added.
‘I’ve got so much respect for you, but I can’t lie, you’re an absolute saint… I just feel like I’m leading two people on.’
