UNDER OSHER'S EYE: 5 questions we have about the new trailer for The Bachelor Australia.

Without it even having begun, we’re confident in saying this year’s season of The Bachelor Australia will be better than last year.

This is basically down to Ten’s decision not to recruit another former-professional athlete with a questionable haircut who really doesn’t want to be there, or bring back someone else from the Bachelor franchise.

For the first time in years, Australia’s Bachelor is someone we’ve never met before and we’re bloody stoked about it. In 2019, women will be hoping to find love (and up their Instagram #spon content) with astrophysicist Matt Agnew.

Here’s the trailer for The Bachelor Australia’s seventh season. Post continues below video.

On Wednesday, Ten released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming season – in which 31-year-old Matt falls from the sky like a meteor as the women – all dressed in red – look up at the sky longingly.

It’s a whole thing.

And while the trailer has absolutely left us excited for the season to come we also have a few… questions.

1. Is this a deleted scene from The Handmaid’s Tale?

A group of ladies, dressed in red, and following a man through dull streets… This is Gilead.

Blessed be the fruit, Commander Matt.

2. How did Commander Matt survive entering the earth's atmosphere on a (heart-shaped) meteorite?

We're not astrophysicists... but we have seen Armageddon and there is no way he would've landed so smoothly and um... alive, if said-meteorite had crash-landed on earth.

This seems unlikely.

Plus, he doesn't have a hair out of place.

3. Is Matt actually Clark Kent?

We present the above meteorite survival tale as evidence.

And this:


4. How did Osher get over last year's betrayal?

Osher trusted the Honey Badger. They were friends - Osher even pretended he understood what was coming out of Nick's mouth. But then Nick took their friendship, built on trust and roses, and stomped on it.

Now, here we are, less than a year later, and our favourite crazy-game-maker-upper is smiling, presenting bouquets, and riding off into the sunset with a new friend.

For everyone who has been burned by the end of a friendship (infinitely worse than the end of a romantic relationship, let's be real), we implore Osher to share his tactics for overcoming such betrayal.

5. When does this season start?
