The Bachelor will return to Network 10 in 2021, with a fresh batch of participants hoping to meet their perfect match on national television.
The popular reality franchise has a fairly decent success rate so far, with Tim and Anna, Sam and Snezana, Georgia and Lee, Matty J and Laura, and Locky and Irena all still going strong — and producing some pretty cute kids too.
This year our Bachelor is Jimmy Nicholson, so let’s unpack what we know about this young lad on the hunt for love.
Who is Jimmy Nicholson?
Nicholson is a 31-year-old Sydneysider who is also a self-confessed romantic. Nicholson an intelligent and passionate go-getter who is ready to find his happily ever after.
What Does He Do When Not Handing Out Roses?
Nicholson is an airline pilot so whoever he ends up choosing can presumably look forward to some fun vacations, when COVID mandates allow.
As it turns out, Jimmy has actually graced our TV screens in the past — as a model on the short lived The Price is Right back in 2012.
Where Can I Find Him on Social Media?
Funny you should ask that, you can find him right here.
Why Is He Participating in ‘The Bachelor’?
Like most singles, when the pandemic hit, Jimmy had time to reflect on his life and what he hoped to achieve in the future. He came to the realisation that while his career is important, love is more important and he is ready to meet his match.
On being the next Bachelor, Jimmy said: “I am a big believer in embracing any opportunity that presents itself, especially if it has the potential to change your life for the better.
“The journey ahead will be one of the most challenging experiences that I have ever undertaken, however, I am very excited to meet someone that I could potentially spend the rest of my life with.”
When Can We Watch the New Season?
We don’t have the exact airdate, but Network 10 promises it will be soon. In the meantime, the network has released a sweet new trailer to help you get to know Jimmy a little better.
In the trailer, he confesses to being quite methodical and loving a good checklist when it comes to work (which is a relief to hear seeing as he’s a pilot!) but, as he says, “when it comes to love — there’s no manual.”
Through the trailer, we also learn that Jimmy comes from a very tight-knit family and that his parents are still madly in love, which is exactly what he is looking for.
