‘The Bachelors Australia’: Will Yuri and Felix Ride the Rollercoaster of Love Together?

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 Felix’s heart on The Bachelors Australia this year is 21-year-old Yuri, from NSW.

Yuri loves getting out of her comfort zone, meeting new people, and making new memories, and what better way to do that than by going on The Bachelors Australia?

Priding herself on being loyal (and fluent in sarcasm), Yuri is all about people being unfiltered and embracing themselves as they are.

As for why she’s still single?

“It’s 100% my choice,” she said in a press statement.

With “high expectations” for anyone she’d get romantically involved with, Yuri said that in the past, she’s “always given [her] all and received little” in return. Instead of going down that path again, Yuri has been focusing her attention on her “career and friends, who are everything” to her.

In fact, one of the biggest obstacles that Yuri has had to overcome thus far is her tendency to see “the best in people”, even when they don’t deserve it.

“I used [to] always see the best in people and assume they couldn’t do any wrong, but I now realise that not everyone has pure intentions and people are in fact quite selfish and more often than not, my trust and judgement is compromised,” she said.

Now, Yuri is “a lot more wary of people”.

“Although I do still choose to see the best in people, once they show who they are I don’t backtrack and provide excuses,” she said. “I get the hell out of there.”

Still, Yuri believes in love, and believes that being in love is a great feeling, so she’s hoping to form a connection with Felix and build something special.

If he wants to really wow her, he could score extra points by taking her on a date at Movie World.

“I’m such an adrenaline junkie and I love theme parks,” she said, adding: “Or skydiving!”

Will Felix and Yuri ride the rollercoaster of love, or will it be a house of horrors? Only time will tell. Until then…

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