The Bachelor Australia is returning to our screens very soon, and it turns out that we already know our newest Bachelor very well!

Network Ten has revealed that 30-year-old industrial rope technician from Western Australia, Richie Strahan, will be on the hunt for ‘the one’ this season!

Australia, meet your new Bachelor. Richie Strahan, 30 from Western Australia! #TheBachelorAU 🌹

Richie won over hearts around Australia during season one of The Bachelorette Australia when he was chosen by Bachelorette Sam Frost to go on a “growing old date”. We then saw them play bingo and dance the afternoon away. He was a fan favourite to win Sam’s heart.

However, it was not enough and Richie failed to receive a rose in the final episodes. Now, he has a second chance at finding love!

He said, “I am feeling excited, nervous but mostly thrilled about potentially meeting the woman of my dreams.”

Richie describes himself as a good Aussie bloke and is looking for an easy-going, down-to-earth woman who loves life, is comfortable in her own skin and has a great sense of humour.

“I am hoping that through this experience I will meet someone who shares my passion for life, someone that I can wake up to every morning and know I have found that special person that I can spend the rest of my life with.”

Osher Günsberg, host of The Bachelor Australia, says he couldn’t think of anybody better. He revealed, “I know that I share the sentiment of anyone that watched The Bachelorette Australia when I say, all I want is for him to find the right person.”

We can’t wait to meet the Bachelorettes!
