‘The Bachelors Australia’: Jenae Is Ready to Meet Her “Forever Person”

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 29-year-old Jenae, from Victoria.

Passionate about empowering women and promoting the ideals of a healthy self image, Jenae is all about good food, good times and having a good laugh — even if she’s laughing at herself.

A beauty entrepreneur who built her business from scratch, Jenae knows how to handle pressure — her small business survived “60 weeks of lockdowns and closures” through COVID.

“Work is my happiness and having it forcefully taken away without any alternatives for the beauty industry was horrible for my heart and financially,” she said. “I’m so proud my small business survived.”

This resilience is sure to come in handy while she’s looking for love on The Bachelors Australia, but when she’s not at work, Jenae prides herself on being fun-loving, independent and spontaneous.

Describing herself as “a relationship person”, Jenae has been in two six-year relationships previously, and has learnt what she does and doesn’t want in a partner.

“Since being single I have rediscovered who I am, what I want and what I don’t want,” she said in a press statement. “I don’t want to waste time in the wrong relationships again.”

Now, Jenae is confident in herself, and while she’s hopeful that her time on The Bachelors Australia will bring her a long lasting love, she also knows that she’ll be fine if it doesn’t work out in the end.

“I now know my worth and [I’m] completely secure to be on my own,” she said. “I don’t need a partner to complete me, but I would love someone to complement and add to my life. So, I am happy to do me and wait for my equal.”

With that being said, if Jenae feels that there’s a romantic spark, you can be sure Thomas will know about it — she joked that she’s “as subtle as a brick to the face” when she’s interested in someone.

Will Thomas soon be feeling the brick of romantic attraction? Only time will tell. Until then…

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