Ten's big ratings banker The Bachelor is coming soon to free-to-air and to get viewers pumped up ahead of show, Ten has showcased the bevy of beauties that are there for the picking.
The Bachelor has been a runaway hit for Network Ten, with the final episode picking up 1.48 million viewers. Similarly, The Bachelorette’s finale picked up 1.52 million viewers last year.
After months of “frenzied media speculation”, Network Ten has today revealed the identities of the 22 bachelorettes who are ready to find love in the new season of The Bachelor Australia.
Aged from 23-34 years old, this year’s bachelorettes are said to be a diverse group of characters from all over the country, with one thing in common - their passion to find “the one” by pulling rope technician Richie's heart strings.
Bachelor Richie Strahan, who was rejected by last season's bachelorette Sam Frost, will open the doors of the bachelor mansion to welcome the women.
Six ladies hail from Victoria - business development manager Aimee, venue manager Alex, artist Georgia, project manager Laura, executive assistant Sasha and personal trainer Tolyna.
Event coordinator Eliza, account manager Keira, personal assistant Kiki, yoga instructor Marja, former professional athlete Mia and make-up artist Olena are the six bachelorettes from NSW.
Four are from Queensland: hairdresser Faith, children’s entertainer Janey, swimwear designer Noni and massage therapist Vintaea.
Customer support manager Sophie is South Australia’s bachelorette. There are five bachelorettes representing Richie’s home state of Western Australia: health promotions officer Megan, communications officer Natalie, support worker Rachael, training administrator Tiffany and real estate agent Nikki.
After much speculation, in March, Ten revealed that Strahan would be Australia’s next bachelor. The rope technician from Western Australia won over the audience as a contestant on last year’s first season of The Bachelorette.
Earlier this month, Network Ten revealed who will be the next Bachelorette, 27-year-old Victorian journalist at WIN, Georgia Love, as the next lady to search for love on national television.
Love is a nightly news presenter in Hobart and follows in Sam Frost's footsteps, making her just Australia's second Bachelorette. The TV series was a hit last year for Channel Ten, with the finale drawing 1.52 million people, despite the Daily Mail trying to ruin everyone's fun.
