The Bachelor 2021: meet the cast
Here are the 23 single ladies vying for the affections of pilot Jimmy Nicholson.
The Bachelor returns to 10 tonight for Season 9 with new leading man, Jetstar pilot Jimmy Nicholson (and yes you may recognise him from The Price is Right).
Hosted once again by Osher Günsberg, it is Warner Bros. Australia.
Romance is ready to make its return and Cupid’s bow is poised to strike firmly in the heart of Australia’s next Bachelor, Jimmy Nicholson. With love and a fairy-tale ending set firmly in his sights, the 31-year-old airline pilot is looking to take on his greatest adventure yet. A self-confessed romantic, Jimmy is an intelligent and passionate go-getter who is ready to find his happily ever after, all against the magical, enchanting and captivating backdrop of the brand-new Bachelor Mansion. Like most singles, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jimmy had time to reflect on his life and what he hoped to achieve in the future. While recognising that his career is important, love is more important. And, The Bachelor seemed the perfect way to find the one. On being the next Bachelor, Jimmy said: “I am a big believer in embracing any opportunity that presents itself, especially if it has the potential to change your life for the better. The journey ahead will be one of the most challenging experiences that I have ever undertaken, however I am very excited to meet someone that I could potentially spend the rest of my life with.”
