EXCLUSIVE: The next Bachelor was just confirmed LIVE on-air

We can't wait to watch this!

When Channel 10 made an unconventional choice for The Bachelorette last year, it was a stunning success. 

Well, apart from the fact that Sophie Monk and Stu Laundy broke up…

So it’s hardly surprising that producers have made an offbeat choice for The Bachelor.

Rumours began swirling over the weekend that Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins would be handing out roses this year but the man himself remained tight-lipped.

But speaking to Fitzy & Wippa this morning, the Honey Badger’s roommate James confirmed the rumours.

Asked by Wippa if it was a big decision for him, James said, “Oh, massive, yeah. He’s a very private dude. Like for him to put himself out there on national TV with that kind of stuff is a big deal for him.”

While the rugby union player’s pretty far from the standard Bachelor dude, he does have one thing in common with them – a stunning set of abs.

When asked if his pal’s starting filming the series yet, James was more tightlipped, saying, “I don’t know what I can say and what I can’t!”

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…!
