The Channel Ten series, which premieres on January 9, is set to feature a brand new format for its tenth season with three leading men taking on the title role.
Chatting with Yahoo Lifestyle, Osher says he’s “extraordinarily excited” about The Bachelor returning in 2023.
“We have absolutely and utterly remixed it, because we started this show 10 years ago and it had been running for about 10 years before that overseas,” he says.
“So in 10 years, you're gonna want to kind of change the flavours, you’re gonna want to shift the menu around a little bit to keep your restaurant open. But because it's quite a package and there's a distinct format that is The Bachelor format, we were given permission, which is very rare, to remix it.”
The 48-year-old went on to share that in addition to a change of format, the way viewers consume television has also evolved since season one in 2013.
“10 years ago there were no streaming services, and even if there were, not everyone had the kind of internet that you could stream on,” he details.
“But now a show like The Bachelor, you watch it on Paramount+, which is on your Prime Video app, and then it's where all your other shows are and you watch it when you want to watch it.
“People watch more than they ever did, but where they watch it is different. I can't wait for people to see it, and because it is now so streamable, you can watch Prime Video on your laptop, you can watch it on your phone, you can watch it on the way to work, you watch it on the beach!”
Prime Video Buff
Osher is currently working alongside Prime Video as they search for their ‘Prime Video Buff’ - someone “truly film and TV-obsessed” that will be paid $40,000 to watch and recommend the streaming platform’s best content to Australia.
The three-month job comes with a whole host of additional perks, including red carpet access, working from home, and the opportunity to stream the biggest Australian and international shows before they hit the platform.
“If you're the person that enjoys not only digesting vast amounts of TV and movies, but you also really love sharing how much you enjoyed it and what you got out of those shows with other people, then this is the job for you,” Osher says.
“And if you work with that person where you’ll show up to work and in the Monday meeting they say, ‘Oh man I just saw this amazing film or incredible TV show’, tell them, ‘Hey, did you know there’s this job, it's $40k and you just do what you're already doing but you get paid for that’. That’s who it's absolutely perfect for.”
‘This is the job I dreamed of having’
Recent research from Prime Video reveals that 64% of Australians rely on word-of-mouth or expert recommendations to pick movies and TV shows, and 78% of Australians would choose to get paid to watch movies and TV shows full-time if they had the option.
“This is the job I dreamed of having,” Osher admits. “It’s perfect for somebody like me, because I love telling people about shows I'm passionate about, but I also really enjoy stretching myself and going, ‘Well, I haven't really checked out too much Scandinavian crime noir, but let's give it a shot’.
“So if you're the person that enjoys not only digesting vast amounts of TV and movies but also really loves sharing how much you enjoyed it and what you got out of those shows with other people, then this is the job for you.”
