31 year old astrophysicist Matt Agnew from Melbourne has been named as The Bachelor 2019 for 10.
Raised in Adelaide and Perth, working on his PhD, he has travelled to Berlin, Sweden and Buenos Aires, is a fan of AFL and enjoys hiking, hitting the gym, yoga and home cooking (what a guy!). One of four kids, he has parents who have been happily married for over 30 years.
Agnew says he is looking for a genuine woman who enjoys having a laugh, doesn’t take herself too seriously and has a real passion for life.
“Seeing my mates finding their partners, tying the knot and buzzing with laughter and love together, I realise I want that!” he says.
“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.
“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!”
Network 10 Executive Producer Hilary Innes, said: “Matt brings spades of old school romance back to The Bachelor. He’s a bachelor with natural charm and intelligence but with a definite twinkle in his eye.
“Matt will be a breath of fresh air to be around. He comes from such an interesting and different world but is still a humble and down to earth Aussie man who really just wants to find the love of his life.”
Hosted by Osher Günsberg, the 7th season is made for Network 10 by Warner Bros. International Television Production to screen later this year.
