Season seven’s Bachelor is Astrophysicist Matt Agnew who has travelled the world following his passion for space, working on his PhD and trying to locate Earth 2.0, reports Network 10.
While his search for other planets has taken him as far as Berlin, Sweden and Buenos Aires, Agnew’s search for true love has now brought him home to Melbourne.
Raised in Adelaide and Perth, he’s a fan of AFL and also enjoys getting outside for a hike and hitting the gym. This gregarious 31-year-old is also a secret weapon in the kitchen and even dabbles in a bit of yoga.
After suiting up to be groomsman several times, Agnew said: “Seeing my mates finding their partners, tying the knot and buzzing with laughter and love together, I realise I want that!”
On becoming the Bachelor, Agnew said: “I’ve got a real ‘do it once, do it right’ mentality so I’ll be making sure I throw myself into it, be vulnerable and enjoy what comes from that.
“It may be an unorthodox way to meet someone, but I think it’ll be a sensational experience and make for a cracking ‘how we met’ story!”
