“I hope to find a woman with whom I share a sense of fun, an undeniable chemistry and a mutual respect. Ultimately I’m searching for the love of my life. I’m going to throw myself into the adventure and I’m prepared to have the absolute time of my life.”

The Bachelor Australia host Osher Gunsberg has weighed in on this year’s pick, saying Wood is very, very down-to-earth.

Here is another photo of his face with a milk moustache. He looks like a really great guy. Image via Facebook.

“His down-to-earth approach to life and charming smile conceal a driven businessman, someone who has worked hard to build a great life for himself,” he said.

“Now he’s looking for someone to share that life with, and I couldn’t be happier to play a part in helping this wonderful man find someone to love.”

Get excited, you guys. It’s almost here.
