Australia, Your 2019 Bachelor Has Been Announced
Here's everything we know about season seven's Bachelor.
Meet Matt Agnew, a dashing astrophysicist who's launching his search for love as this season's Bachie.
Inspired after seeing a lot of his mates getting hitched, Matt realised he was finally reaching the point where he wanted to find someone to start that journey.
The 31-year-old was raised in Adelaide and Perth but has made his home in Melbourne. His love for the stars has seen him travelling the world, taking him from Berlin to Buenos Aires and Sweden.
Not only is he an out-of-this-world babe, but this Bach is smart.
Like... real smart. Matt's a PhD student at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne.
We thought supercomputing was typing "Google" into Google.
Here's his PhD's goal: "To use numerical techniques to search for dynamically stable planet candidates in the habitable zones of all known multiple planet systems."
Whatever that means!!!!
When he's not starring in an IRL version of Interstellar, our future Bachie says he's ready to dive into The Bachelor experience.
"I've got a real 'do it once, do it right' mentality so I'll be making sure I throw myself into it, be vulnerable and enjoy what comes from that," Matt said.
“It may be an unorthodox way to meet someone, but I think it’ll be a sensational experience and make for a cracking ‘how we met’ story!”
For his future bachelorettes, Matt says all you need to get his attention is to be passionate and excited. "You know how sometimes after you've been talking for like 20 minutes about a topic you're really excited about, you apologise for 'being boring and waffling on'? That," Matt told 10 daily.
"I love hearing about things people genuinely love, are excited about and want to share."
Matt's idea of a perfect date is either something low-key like a cozy dinner and a few drinks or skydiving in New Zealand and staying in an ice hotel or watching the aurora in Scandinavia he told us.
Honestly, we can clear our schedule and be flown to Scandinavia, that works for us.
We can't wait to see Matt staring into a bachelorette's eyes and swooning as he tells her how signs of subsurface oceans on Pluto may mean life on planets further from stars could be more possible than we thought! (lol we Googled that, we have no idea what we're talking about obvi.)
