Richie Strahan has been confirmed as the new Bachelor!
Richie, who was in the running to win Sam Frost’s heart on the first season of The Bachelorette Australia, confirmed the news on Thursday morning, saying that he was shocked when he was approached to be the new Bachelor.
‘To be honest I couldn’t believe they called me up to ask,’ he told the Daily Telegraph. ‘I’m a very private person and it’s a really big decision to put yourself out in the public arena again. I found it really hard to open up on The Bachelorette last year, but the end decision was that I could meet a girl I could pretty much spend the rest of my life with.’
His last romance, with former Big Brother star Tully Smyth, came shortly after Sam Frost left him heartbroken, axing him ahead of Michael Turnbull and eventual winner Sasha Mielczarek during an emotional Bachelorette semi-final.
