Channel 10 hints at bisexual Bachelor Australia for 2022


Bisexual Bachelor Australia 2022

The casting call for The Bachelor Australia has hinted that the leading man may be bisexual in the next instalment of the series.

Following Brooke Blurton as the first bisexual Bachelorette in 2021 this would be a first for The Bachelor side of the franchise in Australia.

However, Channel 10 are still remaining coy with details.

The Bachelor: “Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole is so 2020.”

Fans of the show first picked up on the hint when Channel 10 announced their casting call for The Bachelor 2022.

Accompanying a short video on Instagram the program is calling for both men and women to apply for the show.

“We’re on the hunt for single women and men looking for a shot at true love” the ad reads.

Considering the call is usually just for women when casting for the program it seems a pretty clear direction for the show.

Channel 10 was approached for comment regarding the casting of The Bachelor and provided the following comment.

“Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole is so 2020. Love is love and we look forward to casting our next Bachelor, whoever they may be.”

“They really looked after me on The Bachelorette”

Earlier this year Brooke Blurton spoke to Qnews ahead of her appearance on The Bachelorette.

Brooke spoke about breaking the mould of The Bachelorette/The Bachelor franchise and how the program handled her casting.

It was an experience that Brooke welcomed and she spoke of how the program treated herself and her cast members.

In casting a bisexual lead for the program she was confident of the direction of the show.

“I feel like they’ve definitely taken a huge step in the right direction. They really wanted to do me some justice.”

When it came to filming there was a risk that she could be exploited for her sexuality and ratings, but she says it was much better than that.

“I felt really looked after in being the lead. I think all things and experiences in your life lead you to somewhere and in some part, I felt like this door was always going to open. It was whether I was in the right time and frame of mind to do so.”

“At first I had my doubts about whether Australia was ready but then I kind of said stuff it, I’m ready. I don’t really care.”
