The Bachelor gets August premiere date

Ten has set a date for The Bachelor and its not to far away with our first look at some of the contestants

Beginning his journey for everlasting love is Australian international rugby star, Nick “The Honey Badger” Cummins. Known for his down-to-earth nature, Aussie larrikin one-liners, adventurous spirit, sporting prowess and large personality, Nick, 30, will dazzle his 25 beautiful and accomplished Bachelorettes as they take their first steps towards their potential future beau.

Aged between 23 and 34 and living both in Australia and abroad, these strong, confident and independent women will give Nick more than he bargained for.

Two of the glamorous Bachelorettes competing for Nick’s heart are 23-year-old Perth youth worker Brooke and former Miss World Finalist, Cass.

Fun-loving, sporty and compassionate, Brooke is a proud indigenous woman who is looking for an aspirational partner that is loyal and nurturing. Much to her embarrassment, the self-confessed rugby lover fails to recognise the Australian international rugby star on her arrival.



Much like Nick, girly tomboy Cass is passionate about rugby, animals and catching waves on her surf board. Arriving at the mansion, Cass is shell-shocked to discover that this is not the first time she has met the Bachelor.

Romance will blossom in the spectacular Bachelor mansion, as Nick and his bevy of beauties navigate their way through the highs and lows of modern dating.

Hosted by Osher Günsberg, The Bachelor Australia promises a season filled with romance, roses, tears and plenty of drama, as Australia follows one man’s journey to find true love.

The Bachelor Australia. Premieres On Wednesday, 15 August At 7.30pm on Ten
