Get ready, Australia, because The Bachelor Australia is returning, and this time, there’s a twist.
This year, The Bachelor Australia is shaking things up, in the hopes of making things thrice as nice. That’s right. This year, there’s not just one Bachelor to swoon over. There’s not even two Bachelors whose hearts our competitors will be vying for. No. This season, there will be THREE Bachelors to choose from.
Appearing on The Project with the three Bachelors — Jed McIntosh, Felix Von Hofe, Thomas Malucelli — host Osher Günsberg shared his excitement about the upcoming season, which will premiere sometime after MasterChef Australia: Fans and Favourites wraps up.
“It’s our tenth season of The Bachelor Australia so we are so excited, we are doing a world first,” host Osher Günsberg told The Project, promising that the season will be “very different this year
“No one in the world has ever had three Bachelors,” he said, adding: “It’s already been fascinating, we’ve been going for a little while now, and it is already electrifying what we’re seeing.”
As for how the new season will be different, well, it’s not just the fact that there are three Bachies to choose from, according to Günsberg.
“Not only did we have to go to head office to say ‘can we have three Bachelors?’, that was easy!” Günsberg said. “It was ‘but we wanna do it without candles, and we wanna do it without fairy lights’, THAT was a meeting we had to get through.”
With his bleached blonde hair and rocker aesthetic, it’s likely no surprise that 25-year-old Bachelor Jed McIntosh is a musician.
The lead drummer and songwriter for band Mood Monroe, McIntosh might appear tough on the exterior, but rest assured, hiding under those tatts is a sensitive soul with a big heart.
In a statement released by Network Ten, McIntosh said that “a woman willing to find love on a public platform is the confidence I need in a partner.”
Aside from confidence, McIntosh is on the hunt for a woman who is “passionate, empathetic, and ready to commit”.
On The Project, host Waleed Aly asked McIntosh if we could expect to hear him whip out a drum solo mid-date, in an attempt to woo his dates.
“It’s one way to break the ice,” McIntosh mused, “but when you’re standing next to two of the biggest, best lookin’ blokes in Australia, I need to pull somethin’ outta me pocket, so hopefully that can be the case!”
Will two other Bachelors to compete with, will McIntosh find the love of his life on The Bachelors? Only time will tell. Watch this space…
The Bachelors premieres later this year, only on 10 and 10 Play.
