The Bachelor NZ: First Look at the Bachelorettes


Yesterday I nearly dropped dead during an X Factor NZ ad break. The first real promo for The Bachelor NZ is here. No more abstracted black and white abs, no more sail boats, no more National Bank horses galloping down sandy dunes.

We have finally have real women, real candles, and real big watches:

Things We Know About The Bachelor So Far:

“I think he’s one of the most beautiful men I have ever seen in my life

He’s got a gorgeous smile

He looks pretty damn hot

Also can confirm from the promo that he has two arms and all of his teeth.



Guess we’ll find out in March.
