Here's your first look at some of the women vying for Honey Badger's heart on The Bachelor.

 You lil’ beauty.

Nick Cummins AKA Honey Badger (and his glorious mustache) is officially The Bachelor 2018.

In case you missed it, Honey Badger Bachelor is a former rugby union player with a larrikin sense of humour.

The 30-year-old says things like “if I get a gig, I’m gonna go off like a cut snake” and “the boys were on it like seagulls at a tip” and “sweatin’ like a gypsy with a mortgage, actually”.

He’s basically the male version of Sophie Monk.

The Badger has just spent the last couple of months living in a mansion in the semi-rural NSW suburb of Glenorie, going on day trips to jump out of planes and sit on romantic-looking couches with his bachelorettes.

And thanks to some sneaky pap shots and a lil’ bit of Insta-stalking, we now know who two of the women battlin’ it out for Honey Badger’s heart are.

So, here’s your little cheat sheet to this year’s Bachelor contestants:

The Sydneysider was also a Miss World Australia NSW finalist last year and she has the occasional acting gig on Home and Away.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Honey Badger and Cassandra have already had some kind of “romantic relationship” in real life.

“They’ve definitely been more than just friends,” a source confirmed to the publication.

Alisha is a former Bill Shorten staffer who has been pegged to be the Keira or the Laurina of the 2018 series.

According to Cosmo, Alisha has a bit of controversial past working in politics and causin' trouble on the Sydney University campus.

In March this year, the Sydney Morning Herald published a story speculating that the former Canberra staffer could be this year's bachie villain.

SMH reported that Radburn faced criticism when she told people who were upset about a black face incident on Sydney Uni campus to "settle the f--- down" and added "also pretty upsetting to be accused of racism when you're a progressive women [sic]".

The former student union president allegedly also called a member of the campus's Labor Left a "c**t" during an SRC meeting.

Her Insta is currently set to private and she has 1,145 followers.

More to come.
