Their ratings might be sinking but Channel 10 is really one of the few FTA channel to not be afraid of giving viewers a little bit more of colours. E.g: Akuc on MasterChef; Nuala on Wake Up and now this new Bachelor. Loving it!

I agree! CH10 has done incredibly well when it comes to casting diversity, and they do it in a way that’s so effortless unlike if it were on CH7 there would be news about it.

Those few comments on the article linked are interesting.. More controversy like with last year’s bach?

Unfortunately, even though he is arguably good-looking, I don’t find him attractive. Wasn’t too fussed on last year’s bach either.

He’s very dapper, yes, but I’m guessing that with a nose like that his modeling talents are more for underwear and anything else below the neck.

His career as a real estate agent / auctioneer sounds interesting – he’d bring home some good work stories.

So some commenting on that article are saying that he’s in a relationship? Not good – why would he even contemplate doing this show then?

I know for last year’s series a modeling agency was approached and asked to send details of anyone who’d like a TV career … I don’t know if they did send anyone, but this is just like every other ‘reality’ show screening nowadays in that most of it’s made up!

Oh dear. Same old same old. This new Bachelor was also a topless model before. There must be some attractions for C10 to pick these men to be The Bachelor.
