This week, Channel 10 introduced us to our 2016 Bachelorette. And I’m so freakin’ happy with their choice.
Yes, partly because our new Bachelorette has the most fitting surname in Bach history (Georgia Love… I mean come on) but mostly for another reason. A bigger reason. An unusually important reason for a show where one woman dates a dozen men at once. I’m overwhelmingly proud because – for the first time in the show’s history – I’m going to know what the Bachelorette’s job is.
For those who haven’t poured over every celeb story in the last 48 hours, let me give you an overview. Georgia Love is a 27-year-old television journo with an impressive CV. An incredibly impressive CV. Born in Melbourne, our new Bachelorette has a prestigious journalism degree from RMIT University under her belt. She’s anchored for WIN News in Tasmania. She’s intelligent and gutsy and a total lady boss… which is a big first for the TV franchise. Why, you ask?
Because I know Tim Robards was a chiropractor.
I know Blake Garvey was a suit-wearing real estate agent (also a suit-wearing douchebag… but that’s irrelevant).
I know Sam Woods was successful fitness entrepreneur.
And I know Richie Strahan is a rope access technician.
But I have no freaking idea what Sam Frost’s occupation was when she was Bachelorette. Apparently, that didn’t matter, because it never got a mention.
Come to think of it... I don't know what any of the US Bachelorettes did for work, either. And who knows? Maybe they all had great CVs when they were signed up for the gig. They might be incredibly intelligent and hardworking women, but we wouldn't know. We were never told about any of that... because? "SHINY HAIR AND BROKEN HEARTS ARE ALL THAT MATTER" the Bachelorette producers have always told us - but that's complete crap.
