The Bachelorette 2018: Meet Country Boy Dan

With 'The Bachelorette' just around the corner, let us introduce you to one of Ali's potential suitors, Bachelor Dan.

Meet Dan who has a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb... Literally!

In the latest promo for The Bachelorette, which begins NEXT WEEK (can you believe?!), we see Dan step out of the limo holding a lil' lamb.

"What is this?" Ali says in the promo, kind of shook.

Dan's a 32-year-old sports reporter who grew up on a sheep farm in Western Australia and describes himself as a "country boy at heart".

To make an impression on Ali, Dan brings his lamb Bing along, because nothing says cute like baby animals, tbh!

Needless to say, Ali is impressed -- they even start chatting about future plans and family, and they JUST MET! -- but whether Dan will come out victorious over a literal knight in shining armour remains to be seen.

Dan's pretty positive about the whole thing, though, telling Bing that they're off to "a pretty good start" and calling Ali beautiful.

"She’s very beautiful, she’s like you,” Dan tells Bing.

Romance is in the air!

The Bachelorette Australia premieres at 7.30pm on Wednesday 10 October, only on TEN and WIN Network.
