As excitement for Sophie Monk‘s season of The Bachelorette reaches a fever pitch – three days and counting, folks – Network Ten have gone ahead and revealed the traditional cast photo, showing the blokes who’ll be vying for her heart.
The likely lads include self-styled fashion designer Pete, ex-rugby player Ryan, and voice artist Sam, who says he one slipped out of his jocks and donned a Superman apron to impress his partner – he’ll have to go one up on that to snag Sophie’s interest frankly.
Financial adviser James says he can picture himself going on a ski trip with Sophie and “a few little Monks” in tow, while business culture consultant Luke describes himself as a “spiritual” type.
Also amongst the contestants are Gold Coast-based magician Apollo – who apparently smashed all of Sophie’s pre-conceived ideas about magicians – and professional polo player Bingham. These guys’ occupations are wild, and we’re completely here for it.
Some of the lads, like investor Blake, have already had lengthier intros on the official Bachelorette Instagram:
Vineyard manager Jarrod also got a look in:
Sophie confirmed that she found love this season, telling Stellar magazine: “You never know, but my gut is saying this is amazing.”
I mean, that statement could just as easily apply to Yakult, but we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s talking about a bloke and not fermented skim milk and bacteria.
You’ll get to meet the rest of the lads when The Bachelorette premieres 7.30 Wednesday. Our bodies are ready.
