‘The Bachelors Australia’: Marnie Is Throwing Herself Into a New Way of Finding Love

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 twinkling 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 28-year-old Marnie from Queensland.

With no luck in the love department, either on or off the apps, Marnie applied to The Bachelors Australia as a way to try something new.

“I just wanted to throw myself into a different way of finding love,” she said in a press statement. “I’ve tried the dating apps, I’ve tried meeting people organically, and nothing seems to be working.”

Priding herself on being fit, energetic and compassionate, Marnie is a single mum of two daughters, and she’s looking for a partner who fits into the picture with ease.

“I want someone I can bring into mine and my daughters’ lives and for them to fit right in and have an amazing life together,” she said.

Dubbed the “Bogan Barbie” by her pals, Marnie is all about striving to reach her goals and be the best version of herself. What she won’t tolerate are dishonesty and arrogance — after granting toxic people too many chances in the past, she has no time for that anymore.

Marnie has been “deeply” in love before, but said that it was the “too good to be true” kind of love.

“We fell quite quickly for each other and were living with each other after two months!” she said.

Now, she’s looking for someone kind-hearted. She wants to find someone who she not only shares a romantic connection with but someone who could be her best friend and a great stepfather to her daughters, as well.

Is Thomas that man?

Well, for starters, he’ll have to be open to the fact that she has children.

Physically, Marnie’s ideal partner would be taller than her — “but that’s not hard” — as well as muscular, “or just someone who loves the gym [and] staying fit”, with a “big smile”.

As for his personality, Marnie is looking for someone “funny” who’s “always down for adventure”.

Will Thomas check all of Marnie’s boxes? Only time will tell. Until then…

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