Finally we can all let out that breath we have been holding in ; no more sleepless nights or nail biting in anticipation , as Channel Ten have just announced who the next bachelor is for 2016 : Richie Strahan !  For those of you that were not fortunate enough to watch the ever entertaining Bachelorette series featuring Sam Frost , Richie was the second runner up who stole her heart and the hearts of viewers around the country. With his down to earth attitude , geeky catch phrases and a body that makes you want to make wearing t-shirts illegal , Australia is more than excited to see him come back and represent .

The Bachelor Australia (based on the American show) has fast become one of the most popular reality TV shows to hit our screens since Big Brother.  The concept , whilst completely far fetched from reality , is all about 25 women living in a mansion , battling it out to win the prized heart of one man . Think of it as a dating version of The Hunger Games , only trade the blood and gore in for tantrums and tears and throw in copious amounts of candles and rose petals . Each week the “chosen” women are given a rose which indicates their right to continue fighting for the main man , so needless to say no rose=no stay. It’s a cruel reality for each of these girls every week , but it sure does make for great entertainment ! It’s hard not to become addicted to these weekly episodes as each one is jam packed with drama, romantic dates that only exist in dreams, oversharing of emotions and of course the underlying sense of competition that smolders in among the female rivals. In short there is never a dull moment , and whilst some may argue that the show is completely chauvinistic and unrealistic , the rest of us are too busy preparing the popcorn for a night in to watch it all unfold gloriously!

Now the nest question is : When is it airing ?! To make sure you don’t miss a thing follow Ten Play
