He was left broken-hearted when Sam Frost sent him home on The Bachelorette, but 30-year-old Richie Strahan is taking another turn at love, after being announced as the new Bachelor!

And Sam, 26, is adamant that Richie ‘deserves the absolute best’ when searching for his next ladylove.

‘He is such a humble, intelligent, beautiful, gorgeous man and he deserves to shine, and he deserves to shine in front of Australia,’ gushes Sam.


‘He deserves to find a beautiful woman and I wish nothing but happiness for him, he really deserves it,’ adds the former Bachelorette.

While Richie has admitted having that his love-life play out in front of the cameras was a big decision as he’s ‘a very private person,’ the blonde hunk adds, ‘I could meet a girl who I could pretty much spend the rest of my life with’.

With Sam Frost has previously admitted, ‘I don’t know if any of my friends are good enough for [him],’ we’ll see if any of the new Bachelor contestants live up to her high expectations!
