Ladies, Meet the New Bachelor! See New Pictures and Videos Here
His name is Sam Wood, he's 34 years old, he owns a successful kid's fitness company and he's tall, dark and handsome. Sounds like a myth, isn't — he's the new Bachelor! Sam will fill the shoes of former Bachelors Tim Robards and Blake Garvey when the third season of The Bachelor launches later this year — and we can't wait to see what the season brings for him!
When we spoke to Osher Günsberg on the ASTRAs red carpet on Thursday, he told us the new Bachelor is genuinely looking for love and that he's a really, really nice guy. Osher's evidence? The fact that he remembers all the Network Ten production staff's names. In the official press release, Osher said, "Sam's the kind of guy any man would want to be mates with. His down-to-earth approach to life and charming smile conceal a driven businessman, someone who has worked hard to build a great life for himself. Now he's looking for someone to share that life with, and I couldn't be happier to play a part in helping this wonderful man find someone to love."
As for Sam? The Tasmanian-born, Melbourne-based personal trainer sounds like he's chomping at the bit to dive into the role and potentially the biggest relationship of his life. "Being the Bachelor is a real privilege and a once in a lifetime opportunity. I plan on embracing the experience with an open mind, while wearing my heart on my sleeve," he said in Network Ten's official release. "I hope to find a woman with whom I share a sense of fun, an undeniable chemistry and a mutual respect. Ultimately I'm searching for the love of my life. I'm going to throw myself into the adventure and I'm prepared to have the absolute time of my life." Sounds like the perfect guy! Scroll for a good look at him below.
