It’s back. The Bachelor is back.
And it’s already given us some pretty spesh moments.
In last night’s premiere episode we met the ladies, and as usual, they largely fell into two categories: lovely, and a little bit loopy. The perfect mix of girls who will win the roses, and girls we will love to watch stir the pot.
But it was Bachelor Sam Wood himself who really won the night – he’s already turned out to be pretty damn loveable, from doing yoga in the garden with one gorgeous girl (that’s right – they Downward Dogged on the first date) to letting his butt be selfied by another.
Each fortnight, I’ll be bringing you my round-up of The Bachelor’s top Diamond Grade Moments – or, in other words, the most charming, cringe-worthy, cunning and cute interactions between Bachelor Sam Wood and his nineteen favourite girlfriends.
Here’s my pick from episode one:
The ‘Charming’ award has to go to Sam. He works with KIDS, ladies. By CHOICE. Excuse me while my ovaries dance with joy. Tasmanian-born Sam lives in Melbourne, he is the founding managing director of a company that runs sports and fitness programs for primary school kids (breathe, girls), and he can’t wait to start a family.
His dad is his best friend, he’s close to his family – basically, his level of charming is Eric from The Little Mermaid + Prince William + SNAG (Sensitive New Age Guy, of course).
Good news: He’s single. Bad news: He’s about to get 19 girlfriends.
Anal glands. Yes, anal glands. Lovely lady Laura is a vet, which means she deals with a lot of animal-y science-y things… including anal glands. And boy, did she mention it. It was one of those ‘I’m really nervous so I’m just going to keep talking’ conversations, which snowballed into an ‘I have verbal diarrhea and did I just say anal glands six times in a row on a first date on national television?’ kind of chats.
Ah, well. She DEFINITELY made an impression.
