Stone the flamin’ crows.
On Wednesday, our new Bachelor, Honey Badger, will meet 25 hopeful bachelorettes on the steps on the bachelor mansion.
He will say things like “Are you willing to risk it for the biscuit?” and “An outside runner coming in hot at the end” and we’ll giggle and think “Haha… isn’t he funny with his mullet”.
Anywho, I had a wee chat with our new Bachelor to find out exactly what sort of Honey Badgelor goodness is coming our way over the next couple of months.
The former rugby union player (real name Nick Cummins) told Mamamia we could expect something a lil’ bit different from this season.
The most memorable Bachelor entrances…
“I don’t look like your standard bachelor,” he said. “They’ve all been pretty good looking, I hope it’s not a let down when I get in there.”
“I wouldn’t say I’m bloody shocking but with a big curly mullet and a moustache, I’m not your classic version.”
The 30-year-old said he’s never watched the show before and he initially turned down the gig.
“It was a no,” he explained. “I went out on a little mission, rolled my swag out under the stars, and had a bit of a think about it.”
“I thought well I’m in that part of my life now, the timing seems to be right, so I thought ‘yeah, let’s give it a crack’.”
I then asked him what his biggest turn off is. You know, what kind of behaviour would be an absolute deal breaker for him.
“Couch potatoes,” he quickly replied.
“I don’t like [women] who lie around watching TV all the time.”
“Because I’m a bit more outdoorsy and just like to get out and do activities rather than TV,” he added.
