As we wait
impatiently for the upcoming season of The Bachelor Australia we are looking around to get our Bachie fix wherever we can, that includes heading overseas.
The last season of the Bachelor US starred 28-year-old handsome outdoors-man Ben Higgins, and a bevvy of beautiful women vying for his attention. One star you may have missed however, was 37-year-old ‘retired actress’ Molly.
That’s because (unfortunately) Molly wasn’t actually on the show.
Molly Hawkey is an actress, improviser and video editing extraordinaire from Los Angeles who has flawlessly edited herself into the Bachelor and become the greatest contestant ever in the process.
Molly’s glossy intro package shows her adventurous side, as the plays tennis, goes jogging and does sunset yoga on a mountain top. If Molly had to describe herself in one word, it would be “fun”:
She’s the oldest contestant in Bachelor history and has a propensity for over sharing that is equally endearing and cringly. Molly is bubbly and willing to give everything a go, but sometimes… misses the mark, and gets left out by her fellow contestants.
Molly Hawkey’s work is brilliantly funny, well thought out and for Bachelor devotees like us, it’s a hilariously accurate interpretation of the DRAMA that we love so much.
Despite her obvious comedic talent, landing acting jobs hasn’t always been easy for Molly Hawkey. So she took matters into her own hands.
We asked Molly what the inspiration was for Molly From The Bachelor, and her answer was simple -“Laughter!”
“I’ve cut myself into things before (like this Hollywood Reporter Oscar Roundtable) so I’m primed to notice any opportunity where “Molly” might fit in,” she told us.
