Bachelorette’s Timm Hanly looks unrecognisable after home haircut

Bachelorette star Timm Hanly used to be instantly recognisable on Australian TV screens because of his long, curly hair.

Now, the 28-year-old has shared a series of posts on social media sporting a very dramatic new look.

Timm, who also featured in Bachelor In Paradise last year, told his followers on Instagram that he gave himself a mullet.

“Home job,” he captioned the first photo, unveiling his shaved sides and long curls at the back.

“Lock up your daughters,” he said in the next video. “Reckon I should dye the top blonde, leave the back brown?”

He followed up the post with a poll on his Instagram story, asking if he should dye the entire thing blonde so he can look like Joe Exotic from Tiger King.


After becoming the runner-up on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019, Timm shortly made his way to Fiji and sparked up a romance with Brittany Hockley on Bachelor In Paradise.

However, the pair split shortly after they arrived back in Australia and Timm decided to reunite with his ex-girlfriend of seven years, Briana De La Motte.

Ciarran Stott's new look

Timm’s new look comes shortly after fellow Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise star Ciarran Stott debuted a significant haircut of his own.

The 27-year-old, who also had long blonde locks for his two reality TV stints, showed off his freshly shaven haircut last month.

Some of his followers praised the new look, with Bachelor icon Keira Maguire and Married At First contestant Nick Furphy commenting fire emojis.

“Just when I thought you couldn’t get any hotter,” one fan wrote.

“Wow it totally accentuates how attractive your face is,” another shared. “I usually HATE shaved heads, but this looks AMAZING on you.”

A third posted: “Omg you look sexy with or without hair.”

Other users expressed their distaste for Ciarran’s new look, with many people simply writing “why?”.

“Not a fan sorry,” one follower commented.

“Nooo, bring back the braids,” someone else pleaded, while another person replied, “please grow it long again”.
