It’s that time of year again where our social lives take a back seat in favour of investing all our time into the love lives of complete randoms on Channel 10’s The Bachelor Australia - and to be honest, we can’t wait.
Premiering on July 31st at 7:30pm, Matt Agnew’s season of the hotly anticipated reality show looks set to be bigger and better than ever, with promo clips showing the astrophysicist in a number of awkward scenarios.
That includes an unknown contestant arriving to meet the possible love of her life dressed in a wedding dress, another who gets him to ask her to marry her in Persian, and one rose hopeful (who is now known as Gemini) who thinks an astrophysicist is a star sign.
To keep up on all the action on season seven of the show, we’ve rounded up all The Bachelor Australia 2019 contestants’ Instagram handles for all you Bachie-obsessed social media users out there:
The Bachelor, Matt Agnew
First off, you need to follow the Bachelor himself, Matt Agnew. Matt is a 31-year-old Melbourne-based astrophysicist, who’s looking for The One to settle down with.
After seeing all his friends start to shack up, get married and have babies, Matt is looking for his own happy ending with one of the contestants on this year’s show.
Vakoo Kauapirura, NSW
If there’s one thing 23-year-old Sydney model Vakoo Kauapirura knows, it’s how to pick an awesome date, as she’s previously told 10 Daily her perfect scenario would be to visit a ‘ball pit that's full of puppies and then go somewhere to eat. Sounds like a girl after our own hearts.
Abbie Chatfield, QLD
If there’s one contestant who made sure she’ll be remembered for a long time to come, it’s 23-year-old Queenslander, Abbie Chatfield. Abbie went viral after a promo was released f the moment she met Bachelor Matt Agnew for the first time.
In the now famous clip, Matt can be heard telling Abbie he’s an astrophysicist, to which she replied: “I’m a Gemini”. We can’t wait to hear more of the gems this contestant comes out with.
