‘The Bachelors Australia’: Extrovert CJ Is Looking For Someone to Match Her Energy

the bachelors 2023 cj

Well, folks, The Bachelors‘ summer of love is finally here, and this season, things are going to be different.

Past seasons of The Bachelor Australia have featured helicopter dates over Sydney’s picturesque harbours, where our Bachelor would woo his date for the day. Then, they’d head back to the candle-lit mansion dripping in fairy lights for an elaborate Rose Ceremony, where each week, he’d whittle down the women vying for his affection one by one.

This season, all of that is changing.

First, and perhaps most importantly, there are three Bachelors — Jed McIntoshFelix Von Hofe, and Thomas Malucelli — looking for love this year, and if the promos are anything to go by, at least one of them will pop the question by the end of the series.

Secondly, the show has relocated to Queensland’s sunny Gold Coast. The girls are residing in a waterfront mansion, but there’s not a twinkle light or candle in sight, promising a sleeker, more modern version of The Bachelors than we’ve seen in past seasons.

Finally, the promos show a more dynamic, less linear path to love, for both our Bachelors and the girls in the mansion. As we’ve seen, there are girls who reject our Bachies, and some who may be keen to switch Bachelors along the way.

All in all, it’s set to be an exciting season, and with the first promos introducing the women vying for our Bachelors’ hearts dropping, it’s time to get to know them.

One of the women vying for Thomas’ heart on The Bachelors Australia this year is 30-year-old CJ, from Western Australia.

Energetic and “a full YOLO’er”, CJ is a classic extrovert — she loves being around people, and prides herself on being loud, social and energetic. She’s an open book who’ll give it to you straight, and she’s looking for someone to match her energy.

As for why she’s still single?

“Because I have high standards and know what I want,” she said in a press statement.

Over the years, CJ has learnt that while it’s important to put work into your relationships, it’s equally important to know when to let someone go.

Prior to The Bachelors Australia, CJ has been in love “a few times”, but notes that they were all “different kinds of love”.

“A high school love, a best friend love and one I thought would last eternity but through growth and change within myself, ended,” she explained. “And that’s okay.”

Now, CJ is ready to begin a new chapter in her life, and she’s hoping that The Bachelors Australia will bring her the partner she’s looking for.

“I’m finally in a good place emotionally, mentally and confidently in my life,” she explained of her decision to apply for the show. “I’m settled, enjoying my career, my children are that bit older now; I’m ready to bring a man into mine and my children’s life who I can have a laugh and good time with, who fits into our home and chilled but busy lifestyle.”

Will Thomas be the perfect fit for CJ? Only time will tell. Until then…

The Bachelors Australia premieres on January 9, only on 10 and 10 Play on Demand.
