They’ve found it! The Bachelor is set to make its way into the hearts of all Australians this year with the announcement that rugby superstar, Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins, is set to be the 2018 Bachelor.
Physically striking, successful and smart, the sporting talent of this wild-haired winger, Nick’s wicked sense of humour and his distinctive, witty one-liners have made him a hero, both on and off the field.
One of Australian rugby’s most-loved characters, Nick’s career saw him celebrate a 15 Test match career with the Australian Wallabies, play a season with the Australian Sevens, earn a Commonwealth Games silver medal, and play with the Western Force and overseas in Japan. Earning the moniker “Honey Badger” because of his strength, ferocity and toughness, Nick displayed a flamboyant, never-say-die approach on the field, which captivated crowds.
Born in Port Macquarie NSW, Nick grew up in Queensland with his father and siblings. Family is everything to Nick and in the past, he has sacrificed career success to support his family. Currently taking a break from the game, Nick has the world at his feet.
He has written two books about his life (a third book is in the works), travels extensively and has appeared in advertising campaigns for several high-profile brands.
Nick has family, friends and an enviable career, but the one thing missing from his life is the perfect woman. The Bachelor Australia will follow Nick as he embarks on a new adventure: meeting some of the country’s most eligible bachelorettes and experiencing the romantic dates, extravagant cocktail parties and emotional rose ceremonies that characterise the Bachelor journey.
Nick has expressed his eagerness to get around some love and good times on the 2018 season, and having seen his tenaciousness on the field, we’re pretty keen – is there still time to sign up?!
