Party girl and life of the party, intruder Brittney left a lasting impression when she tried to conga line her way into Nick’s heart. While her advances weren’t as successful as she hoped, Brittany is single and ready to mingle with any guys that are taller than her.

Brooke
24, Nick Cummins’ Season (The Bachelor Season Six)
Brooke won Australia’s heart during Nick’s season of The Bachelor Australia, and when she chose to leave the top three before the rose ceremony we wondered if she was the one who got away. Now this pocket rocket is back and looking for someone who is ready to reciprocate the love she has to give.

Cass

Cass had her eye on the prize during Nick’s season of The Bachelor Australia feeling that fate had brought them together once again.

Now she is looking for someone who shares her love for the outdoors and is ready for romance with her.

Cat
25, Nick Cummins’ Season (The Bachelor Season Six)
Cat’s quick wit and straight-talking ways saw her ‘tell it like it is’ during Nick’s season of The Bachelor Australia.

She is out to find someone who is passionate about life, willing to support her business and lifestyle and who wants to commit to love.

Keen to avoid drama where possible, Rachael wants to suss people out early so she knows their motives.

Shannon
26, Nick Cummins’ Season (The Bachelor Season Six)
Shannon was an early favourite in Nick’s season but her lack of time with him lead to a heartfelt exit.

Looking for a man who can meet her long criteria, Tenille is hoping Paradise has a funny, humble, honest, loyal, tall, respectful and good mannered bachelor for her to fall for.

Vanessa Sunshine
27, Nick Cummins’ Season (The Bachelor Season Six)
Brutally honest and not one to mince her words, Vanessa Sunshine created a stir on her season with some of the more outspoken Bachelorettes. While she has never had a serious relationship, Vanessa Sunshine’s ideal man is both funny and genuine and not a party boy. She wants her future partner to be a man whose sincerity she doesn’t have to question and who doesn’t question hers.

Alex B
30, Rachel’s Season (The Bachelorette US Season 13)
Known for his bright coloured suits on Rachel Lindsay’s season in America, Alex is on the lookout for a relationship that has synergy. The active information systems supervisor wants the kind of relationship where they both add to each other’s lives without giving up their individuality.

Eager to meet his dance partner in life, Ivan is hoping Paradise will be the start of something great.

James
33, Sophie Monk’s Season (The Bachelorette Season Three)
This lovable financial adviser may not have won Sophie’s heart but women of Australia definitely found a soft spot for him. His passion for the outdoors sees him on constant adventures whether it be surfing, snowboarding, hiking or taking a random road trip somewhere. Time has given him the chance to evolve what he is truly looking for and if they are an older soul who doesn’t take themselves too seriously, James is interested to know more.

Nathan
23, Ali Oetjen’s Season (The Bachelorette Season Four)
The self-confessed party boy caused a lot of drama on Ali’s season of The Bachelorette Australia, clashing with his fellow bachelors and speaking out of turn.

Paddy
28, Ali Oetjen’s Season (The Bachelorette Season Four)
Outspoken and hot-headed, Paddy’s choice of words has previously landed him in hot water, but this mischievous gym manager wants people to know he is actually a respectful guy. A fun lad who stays true to himself, Paddy is looking to meet a driven, motivated family girl who is cheeky and takes care of her appearance.

Richie
33, Sam Frost’s Season (The Bachelorette Season One) and The Bachelor Season Four

    David, little typo on your home page where it says “19’s” instead of “10’s” reality dating series, in the picture thingo at the top.

    • Because I didn’t want group or episodic shots in a post to help readers work out who is who. I realise your comments are regularly cynical but would be good to vary it sometimes too?
