Bachelor starts Wednesday on Ten – will it be another dud?

The new season of The Bachelor Auatralia begins on Ten this Wednesday.

Pilot Jimmy gets to have Osher as his wingman.

Will this be a return to form for the Bachelor franchise after a few bleaugh seasons.

Thanks to social media, will we already know he has split with the “winning” girl by halfway through the season?



  1. He seems like a pleasant young man, who, from the promos, doesn’t miss a chance to make out with any and all of the women.

    Do the women always go over the top staging their entrances? I’m thinking of the one who arrives in a hot air balloon – held by a crane.

    In one of the ads, Jimmy said he thought there might be something “between her and I”. Argh.

  2. He seems kind of average, and the ads don’t make this look like anything special. Also, the last few years have really taken the gloss off the whole concept. I don’t think I’ll watch.

  3. He just doesn’t look that attractive, and I feel the over the top entrances from the girls is covering for his lack of personality.
    Not sure I will be tuning in.

  4. He gives me the impression he couldn’t attract flies to a shit fight. A less than silver tongue with partly chewed food hanging from it. These gels would have to be desperate to have their profiles raised.

    I can’t “connect” with this show a lot these days. Maybe, if it’s a plane wreck.

  5. Of course I’m tuning in. There’s nothing else on.

    Jimmy seems like a decent enough guy, if a bit boring. I like that he’s a pilot. Like, that means he’s smart and successful, and those are very attractive traits. Plus, he has a dog. That’s a huge tick. He’s hot from the neck down, but honestly, if I saw him walking down the street, I’d be more, meh.

    The most interesting part of the first episode was hearing a pilot talk about how covid has affected his world.

    I did laugh at Osher’s intro monologue.

    “Right now, there are limousines full of smart, attractive, determined women…”

    And unfortunately, none of *those* women are coming anywhere near the Bachelor mansion. Instead, we have cars full of vapid, attention-seeking, fame-starved bikini models and Instagram posers.

    Gosh, I’ve gotten cynical.

    • “Right now, there are limousines full of smart, attractive, determined women…”

      In New York.

  6. Interestingly, one of the girls (who drove her muscle car up to the mansion to meet Jimmy) said that she drove the car all the way to the Sunshine Coast.

    I wasn’t aware they’d filmed the damn show up here in Queensland, but they must’ve.

  7. Jimmy’s throwing around compliments like cheap confetti.

    I guess the one who said “Pilots are shit!” will be the one sent home. Jiving Jimmy can’t handle the truth.

    • Yeah, I gave up around the half-hour mark. I’m not invested enough in either him or the girls. I’m going to go and watch “Superman and Lois”.

      A TV show about a man who can *actually* fly, and the woman he loves.

  8. I have found it difficult to warm up to this season.
    He has a dog. That’s a tick.
    He wanted his last girlfriend to be told that he was on the show before it was screened. That’s a tick.
    He is still on good terms with her. That’s a tick.
    I’m really trying to like him. There is so little on television.
    That’s reminds me, do we ever meet the Bachelor’s family? I can’t remember. I know we meet the family of the final … three? So many seasons, so few memories.

    • We actually met his parents and two of his sisters (and one of them seemed really aggresive) in the opening segment of this season.

      I’m sure there’s usually a, “Meet the Bachelor’s family” episode towards the end, usually, and I’m betting that the two sisters pop up, at some point, to grill the bachelorettes.

  9. Next Bachelor; Farmer Rob. Something has to take eventually 🤣

    Matt was kerazy taking Tara.
    Pretty, smart Alex for next Bachelorette.

  10. Jimmy; I don’t like his eyes.
    Brooke; poomvey. I don’t like poomvey. (Put on baby voice). Noooo.
    He didn’t click with Carly. She looked too old for him.
    Jay was almost wearing a dress.
    Laura is a dag. She put something down his throat.
    Sierra’s gimmicks were cheating at Tarot, and power farting.
    Next tacky girl Belinda who confessed to eating and sh*tting through life. So we’ll bred. 😨 Yuk and she threatened to lock him in a basement.
    Then they raced through a host of crazies, and hopefully some normal ladies.
    Hannah, registered nurse looks nice, but she doesn’t know you aren’t supposed to put padlocks on the bridges in Paris anymore. The collective weight has been destroying the bridges. The authorities have to cut them off.
    Holly might be a front runner. I want her career.

    A bunch of girls who saw “pilot” = $$$$
    Then Chanel; flight manager. Nope. He’s still thinking about Holly.
    Stephanie from Perth is picky and pretty. Gamer. Streams herself. Whatever that is.

    Aaaand…it’s LAURA. The resident crazy girl is going to be Laura.

    Stephanie has already outed Jimmy the pilot. NOT A PILOT!!!!!!!!

    • If he’s not a pilot, what is he? He’s certainly been spruiked loudly as “Jimmy the pilot”.

      He seems to have a license to fly that little plane, unless they were just playing around on the ground in the little plane. I’m not watching, just going by the promos. Is the bachelor usually misrepresented?

      Who would want to take up with a pilot in Australia right now anyway? They’re either out of work, and,when in work, are away from home half the time.

  11. Anything goes wrong on this romantic joy ride, an extra parachute will be required just for Brooke’s teeth.

    Nothing else on and it’s freezing outside.

  12. I read somewhere that he is a co-pilot. Good enough for me.
    Saying he is not a pilot is like saying a doctor is not a doctor if they are surgeon because a surgeon doesn’t treat people, they only cut them.
    I know, bad example. I couldn’t think of another one this early in the morning.
    The woman was obviously dying in a ditch over semantics and it doesn’t say nice things about her personality.
    And a job doesn’t define you, says every retired person who has had difficulty adjusting to life.
    I remember working at Optus as a consultant and being given a red badge. Green for permanent and red for temporary. Talk about being treated like scum . 😲😲😲

    • Saying “It’s not a fish if it’s a blowie”?
      “It’s not a mammal if it’s a dolphin”.
      “It’s not a Prime Minister if it’s Scott Morrison”.
      “It’s not a person if it’s Clive Palmer”.

      Oh no. Semi retired and I told my (dissatisfied with their mundane lives) young nieces, don’t let a job define you. Use your job and enjoy your life.

      In their 30s they were down on themselves for not having careers that made them value themselves.
