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 McIntosh, Felix 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 Felix’s heart on The Bachelors Australia this year is 24-year-old Naomi, from NSW.
A few things about Naomi: She’s hyper-focused, ambitious and adventurous. It’s these qualities that make her the perfect candidate for The Bachelors Australia, because she’s on the hunt for her Mr Right, and if she finds him, she’s ready to go after him.
In fact, she’s not just on the hunt for her Mr Right, she’s on the hunt for her Mr Big.
Asked to compare her love life up until now to a romantic comedy, Naomi said that she relates to Sex and the City, in that she is an “ambitious woman who is looking for her ‘BIG'”.
Naomi went on to say that her version of Mr Big would be “a man [who] is bold in his actions and confident in himself”.
She continued: “A ‘yes’ man who is always willing to try new things, he must be adventurous, career driven is a must. Tall, dark and handsome.”
A classic extrovert, Naomi is a social butterfly from a big family who loves socialising, travelling and going out to dinner, and she’s looking for someone to match her energy. When she’s not appearing on The Bachelors Australia, the ocean is her happy place. She heads to the beach every day, and is all about a nice long coastal walk, a dip in the ocean, and playing water sports.
As for her relationship deal breakers, Naomi won’t tolerate “low drive and ambitions” or “a negative outlook on life”, and she isn’t attracted to people with “low confidence” or anyone who doesn’t value quality time in a relationship.
Will Felix be the Mr Big of Naomi’s dreams? Only time will tell. Until then…
The Bachelors premieres on January 9, only on 10 and 10 Play on Demand.
