TEN has confirmed rumours that Wallabies player Nick Cummins is the new Bachelor for 2018.
Cummins enjoyed a 15 Test match career with the Australian Wallabies, earning a Commonwealth Games silver medal, and earning the moniker “Honey Badger.”
Currently taking a break from the game, he was recently signed by Netflix to co-host season three of Ultimate Beastmaster shot in Los Angeles (to be released mid-2018), starring in upcoming National Geographics Meanwhile in Australia and was the face of Tourism Australia’s youth campaign Aussie News Today!
“I’m really looking forward to throwing everything at this opportunity to finding the one,” he said.
“The past 10 or so years has been on the road playing rugby or working on my projects, so I’m very excited to be part of a show that is centred around love and good times.”
Executive Producer Hilary Innes, said: “We are delighted that Nick has agreed to be Australia’s next Bachelor. He will bring a refreshing, honest and cheeky energy to season six. On top of all his incredible achievements, he is both loveable and surprising. I know he will be a phenomenal Bachelor.”
Again hosted by Osher Günsberg, The Bachelor returns later this year.
