This week all of our television viewing dreams come true. Sophie Monk debuts as The Bachelorette and we can’t wait. Before the season kicks off on Wednesday though, we thought we’d introduce you to the men that will be vying for Sophie’s heart – including Harry who we know better as our local bar manager at Malobo in Henley Square!
Based on what we know of Harry, and a few of the other guys in the ‘line up’, it seems Sophie has a soft spot for beachy guys – and men in velvet for that matter. Unusual names are also abundant. We wonder what else will be revealed as the season rolls out.
Harry, 24, Restaurant Manager, South Australia
Free-spirited larrikin Harry is always up for an adventure. The restaurant manager is passionate about the environment, enjoys surfing and everything about the outdoors. Falling in love is an indescribable feeling for Harry and he is looking for a passionate and adventurous woman to love.
Apollo, 24, Magician, Queensland.
Romantic and entertaining, Apollo loves to lift people’s spirits. The magician enjoys making the most out of life, creating memories and making people smile. An old soul, he is looking for a woman who can share his passion for philanthropy, knows what she wants and is vocal about what she expects in a relationship.
Bingham, 25, Polo Player, Queensland.
Competitive and cocky, Bingham believes his best features are his height and physique. The polo player’s ideal woman will understand his passion for sport, love horses and pull him up when he is wrong, but most of all, she will be his best friend. Bingham’s ideal date would be a helicopter ride to a yacht, where he and a lucky lady can sample a large selection of whisky and wine

Chad, 37, Contact Services Manager, Victoria.
Honest and confident, Chad is respectful but will always speak his mind. He has only been in love once but is at a point in his life where he has everything he needs except that special someone with whom to share it. His dream date would be spent doing something fun outdoors before a romantic dinner and drinks overlooking the beach while the sun sets.
