Network Ten have announced who the 2021 Bachelor Australia will be, and for the first time in a while, it’s someone we haven’t met before!
After months of speculation, airline pilot Jimmy Nicholson has been confirmed as the leading man for this year’s season.
“Romance is ready to make its return and Cupid’s bow is poised to strike firmly in the heart of Australia’s next Bachelor, Jimmy Nicholson,” the network said in a statement.
“With love and a fairy-tale ending set firmly in his sights, the 31-year-old airline pilot is looking to take on his greatest adventure yet.”
Channel 10 has described Jimmy as a “self-confessed romantic”, who is an “intelligent and passionate go-getter who is ready to find his happily ever after”.
“Like most singles, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jimmy had time to reflect on his life and what he hoped to achieve in the future,” the network said.
“While recognising that his career is important, love is more important. And, The Bachelor seemed the perfect way to find the one.
Jimmy says he can’t wait to begin the adventure and hopefully find the one!
“I am a big believer in embracing any opportunity that presents itself, especially if it has the potential to change your life for the better,” he said.
“The journey ahead will be one of the most challenging experiences that I have ever undertaken, however, I am very excited to meet someone that I could potentially spend the rest of my life with.”
The Bachelor Australia will once again be hosted by Osher Günsberg and is set to air on Channel 10 soon, however an exact date has not yet been confirmed.
