With filming of this year’s season of The Bachelor (starring Australia’s dorky sweetheart, Richie Strahan) coming to a close, now the new question on everyone’s lips is who will be the new Bachelorette?

Well, all has been revealed as, just this morning, it was announced that 27-year-old Melbourne-born Georgia Love will be Australia’s new Bachie babe.

Currently working as a television journalist in Hobart, Georgia will join the reality series that sees prospective suitors vie for her attention (and the all-important rose). Initially, it was thought that producers would be looking for a previous Bachelor contestant to front the series, but after a nationwide search, they settled on self-described ‘hopeless romantic’ Georgia!

Georgia has described herself as your girl next door, hailing from regional Victoria, but ‘far from average’ is ‘now at the stage where she wants to put herself first and find that special person with whom to share her life’.

“My whole life, I have put my job and career first, but have always felt something has been missing. I’m now at a point where I’m happy with where I am at in my career and I’m ready to prioritise love,” Georgia says.

We can’t wait for this to start!
