Australia’s Next Bachelor Has Been Announced

After a tumultuous season last year with the Honey Badger, followed by an underwhelming viewing of we’ve-seen-her-try-and-do-this-193873-times-before Ali Oetjen, the big people over at channel 10 have heard our prayers and answered them generously.

That’s right, Fairies, your next Bachelor has just been announced, and he’s a whole lot different to what we’ve seen before, and honestly, it’s a breath of fresh air.

Taking to Instagram earlier this morning, The Bachelor page revealed our mystery man to be a certain Matt Agnew, who thankfully doesn’t tick any of the famous boxes, both in the television and sporting world. In fact, he’s more or less a complete unknown, and we are so here for it.

You may not know him now, but soon you will ❤️ @MrMattAgnew is looking for a love that is out of this world 😍🌏 #TheBachelorAU, launching soon.

The 31-year-old is an astrophysicist, and a quick google search has revealed that he’s currently working at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, and is in the process of completing his PhD on the search for “dynamically stable planet candidates in the habitable zones of all known multiple planet systems.”

Ugh, we love an intellect.


So if you’re like us, and the thought of an intelligent man in a pair of geeky glasses is doing absolutely everything for you, then maybe this is the year you finally complete your casting application and put yourself in the run to win this man’s heart.

Keep an eye out for more to come!
