After months of speculation, Network 10 has this morning revealed its 2019 Bachelor.
Dispensing with celebrity, this time its playing brains over brawn, announcing 31-year-old astrophysicist Matt Agnew will be wooing ladies’ hearts when the popular dating show returns later this year and again hosted by Osher Günsberg.
According to 10’s release, Agnew was “raised in Adelaide and Perth, it’s not surprising that Matt’s a fan of AFL and also enjoys getting outside for a hike and hitting the gym. This gregarious 31-year-old is also a secret weapon in the kitchen and even dabbles in a bit of yoga.”
Commenting on his newfound Bachelor status, Agnew said: “I’ve got a real ‘do it once, do it right’ mentality so I’ll be making sure I throw myself into it, be vulnerable and enjoy what comes from that.
“It may be an unorthodox way to meet someone, but I think it’ll be a sensational experience and make for a cracking ‘how we met’ story!”
Network 10 executive producer of The Bachelor Australia, Hilary Innes, said: “Matt brings spades of old school romance back to The Bachelor. He’s a bachelor with natural charm and intelligence but with a definite twinkle in his eye.
“Matt will be a breath of fresh air to be around. He comes from such an interesting and different world but is still a humble and down to earth Aussie man who really just wants to find the love of his life.”
The seventh season of The Bachelor Australia will follow Agnew as he endeavours to find his star-crossed lover among an outstanding group of hopeful Bachelorettes. With all the romance, fireworks and cheese platters you’ve come to expect and a brand new brainy Bachelor on board.
