I thought “the bachelor” was meant to be someone you could take home to your parents and I am not sure John Ibrahim would fit that bill. Sure he is good looking, smart and rich but he has been a character in an Underbelly series. How do you explain that to your parents.
In fact even one of his mates Kyle Sandilands would be more appropriate to be star in the Network Ten’s version of The Bachelor.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting nightclub owner John Ibrahim is now single as he has broken up with his fiancee Chelsea.
TEN told the paper:
“Of course we would be more than happy to receive an application from John, or indeed anyone who has found themselves recently single,” a spokeswoman said. “Long-term singletons are more than welcome too at ten.com.au/bachelor.”
A number of bachelors have already been approached, some as young as 25, although we hear the ideal candidate would be in his 30s.
One person not in the running will be Todd Carney whose on/off girlfriend Lauren Eagle who was on Celebrity Apprentice was arrested on Saturday night after not leaving a Cronulla Hotel after being asked to go. (Source: Daily Telegraph)
It will be interesting to see who The Bachelor is going to be and this is a show that should have everyone talking about it.
The Bachelor on Network Ten later this year.

I have been gibbering for years to anyone who would listen (aka no one) that one of the Network’s should have a crack at The Bachelor.
Network TEN has decided to make the iconic TV show with the overseas version currently seen on GO.
The reality show where many bachelorettes fight it out for an eligble bachelor is huge in the USA. It is in its 17th season and 10 million viewers watched this year’s finale. Also there should be no shortages of companies willing to sponsor the show. Roses Only would be a perfect fit as would any of the online dating sites.
The show is so hyped up in the US that when it is on it gets a huge amount of main stream media coverage and the gossip magazines love it.
Throughout the series, the bachelor follows a gradual process of elimination, presenting his favourite bachelorettes with single red roses until he finds the one woman with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life.
People on this show have gone onto other media careers but also there have been Bachelor marriages and babies.
They are still casting for “The Bachelor” as seen by the call out for single men earlier this week. So all you wealthy miners out there start applying.
There have also been some memorable proposals that have been turned down. For that iconic Bachelor moment see below.
TEN need a hit series with an reality TV format as once Masterchef is off our screens later this year there is not a lot on their schedule. Another show they should consider bringing back is So You Think You Can Dance. Yes I know they were permanently scarred by their Everybody Dance Now experience but it was not the dancing that was the issue with that show. Also if anyone can find the mega bucks needed to make it another Australian version of Survivor would be great as well.
The show will be produced by SHINE and will screen on TEN later this year. It will be interesting to see how they Australianise it.

Hey thanks Andrea for sending your thoughts on The Bachelor finale that just finished up on GO.
The Bachelor is huge in the US with it getting mainstream media coverage daily when it is screening and the people that star on the show get more than their 15 minutes of fame.
Here it is:
Well the most controversial finale in The Bachelor history has just wrapped up on the Go channel this week.
Set in Switzerland, Ben had a difficult decision to make poor thing, as he was in love with two incredible women, Courtney and Linzi.
His mother and sister arrived to help him decide and straight away warned him against Courtney as she couldn’t get on with the rest of the women in the house. However on meeting her, they changed their minds and gave both girls a stamp of approval, saying that they considered them both a perfect match for Ben.
On Linzi’s final date with Ben, she tells him that she has never felt this way before and can see a life with him, Courtney says the same thing and that she’s head over heels in love with him and doesn’t want to lose him! What is poor Ben to do?
He says he’s confused, but later admits to camera that he knows who he wants to spend the rest of his life with, chooses an expensive ring ( I wonder if he has to pay for it ) and prepares to propose.
Linzi arrives first by helicopter over stunning views of snow capped mountains. Shes been feeling confident but Ben soon shoots that down in flames by saying sorry, but he’s fallen in love with Courtney. She doesn’t seem overly upset and tells him as he’s walking her out to call her if things don’t work out with Courtney.
When Courtney arrived he tells her that the whole journey and experience has been worth it, he’s madly in love with her, gets down on one knee and proposes. They promise that they will love each other forever as the camera pans out to more stunning views of Switzerland.
After this episode, we go straight to ” Bachelor After the Final Rose – Wrap Up” where Ben and Courtney come on separately and explain that due to all the negativity and hostile media reaction that they have been on a break. Courtney is no longer wearing her engagement ring and they are both very emotional and teary. When the episodes went to air, Ben realized how mean and nasty Courtney had been to the other women, and instead of standing by her, decided to break up with her.
Courtney felt Ben had abandoned her in her hour of need and left her to deal with the media herself. Ben said that he is in a better place and apologised to her and told her he still loves her.After watching footage of the proposal, they started to cry and said they want to try again. The host quickly whips out the engagement ring that he has been minding for them and Ben slips it back on Courtney’s finger.
It would be nice to say that they are still living happily ever after but if the rumours are true reading on line, they are still together, but things are looking a bit shaky. Apparently success stories from any of The Bachelor series are far and few between.
