Fan favourite from The Bachelorette is back and looking for love

Australia, you've waited patiently and now, finally, it's official: Matty Johnson is the new Bachelor. And boy, are we excited!


Viewers quickly became invested in Matty's budding relationship with Georgia Love on The Bachelorette last year. The cheeky and charming 29 year-old marketing director wore his heart on his sleeve and wasn't shy in sharing his feelings, eventually declaring his love for Georgia on a romantic moonlight swim.

Sadly, it wasn't to be. In the spectacular finale in Singapore, Georgia chose Lee Elliott over Matty, breaking hearts across the country.

He's since taken some time out to get over his heartbreak, and now Matty's ready for a second shot at true love when The Bachelor returns to screens later this year.

“I feel so privileged that I’ve been given the opportunity to be The Bachelor. Without question, the most exciting part is the chance to meet the girl I’m going to spend the rest of my life with.”

We hear you, Matty!

Make a mental note, all, as Matty describes his ideal partner as kind, intelligent and easy-going with a passion for the outdoors and the ocean.

Being a part of a large family (he's one of five siblings), and a very proud uncle to his sister’s first child George, Matty's eager to start a family of his own.

“I’m so excited about the prospect of settling down. Timing is such a crucial factor when it comes to making this commitment and I know wholeheartedly, that there’s nothing I want more.” 

With the whole of Australia behind him, will Matty find love the second time around? We cannot wait to find out.
