Network Ten has announced that singer, songwriter, actress, model and radio personality Sophie Monk will star in the new season of The Bachelorette Australia later this year.
Monk came to Australia’s attention as one of the five singers who made the cut in the music reality TV series Popstars in 2000, which culminated in the all-girl group Bardot.
Since then, Monk has gone to release a solo album, has starred in roles on both the big and small screens, and broadcasts her self-deprecating humour to the nation on radio stations such as 2DAY FM and KIIS 1065.
Ten’s chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “Australia has known and loved Sophie for more than 15 years, and has followed the ups and downs of her love life.
“We are delighted she has agreed to join The Bachelorette Australia and let the nation enjoy her search to find happily ever after.”
Commenting on her new role, Monk said: “I’m in the public eye, but away from that I’m just a regular woman, and I’m open to committing fully to finding love on The Bachelorette Australia.
“After life experience with some of the wrong men, what I want to find above all else is a man who is kind and genuine.”
