Australia, meet your new Bachelor Jimmy Nicholson

Channel 10 has announced their new Bachelor. And it’s refreshing to see a departure from famous faces.

Australia, meet your new Bachelor: Jimmy Nicholson.

The 31-year-old is a refreshing departure from the slew of recognisable faces from the past couple of seasons, the ninth of which began filming this week.

Nicholson, who is of Fijian and New Zealand heritage, describes himself as a “romantic” and an “intelligent and passionate go-getter” who is ready to settle down.

As a pilot hit hard by the pandemic, Nicholson said he decided to apply when he found himself with more free time on his hands.

“I am a big believer in embracing any opportunity that presents itself, especially if it has the potential to change your life for the better,” Nicholson said, reports.

“The journey ahead will be one of the most challenging experiences that I have ever undertaken, however I am very excited to meet someone that I could potentially spend the rest of my life with.”

We’re also informed it will be a completely new mansion, and the ninth season of The Bachelor will air in the coming months.
