Ahead of the Bachelor premiere on August 12, Network Ten dropped a first look promo!
The promo features adventurous dates, with Bachelor Locky Gilbert and members of the cast getting intimate — and maybe a little afraid — on a yacht, a helicopter, a raft, a motorbike, a mountain bike and even an off-road buggy. And don't forget the annual "sports" group date, which this time looks like American football.
The trailer also promises tension between the women vying for Locky's affection, and, of course, the moment when COVID-19 shut down production. That means the series turned to Zoom group and single dates, before Locky reunited IRL with his frontrunners. Looks like we have plenty of makeout sessions to look forward to!
We can also expect a season cliffhanger, with Locky in the finale getting teary. "I'm in love with both of 'em," Locky said. "You don't break up with someone that you love."
In July, seven trailers for the upcoming season of The Bachelor dropped, featuring contestants arriving at the mansion, with dancer Nicole, the pampered Laura and boss Areeba stepping out of their limos to meet lucky Locky Gilbert.
We also met nurse Irena getting Locky undressed in order to check his heartbeat; Rosemary, this season's funny woman, dressed as a penguin; Steph, who was determined to convert Locky to spicy food; and Bella, the woman in gold who immediately caught Locky's attention in the first promo. Will one of these women be Locky's forever?
The first trailer for Locky Gilbert's The Bachelor series dropped earlier in July, during the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise season three.
Locky explained to the camera his outlook on love, intercut with shots of him in his luxurious Bachie pad. "Being in love is like the best feeling in the world — it takes your breath away.
"I've definitely had my heart broken. Love, it is scary. Love's like the scariest thing in the world," he said, which too was cut with some of Bachie's patented gratuitous shirtless shots. We definitely did need to see him shower and put a crisp white shirt on, thank you producers.
"I've done a lot of crazy things in my life," he continued. "Jumping off of mountains, jumping from buildings, scuba-diving through a shipwreck— but being the Bachelor is the craziest thing i've ever done."
There's something delightfully humble about seeing him mumble, "Please like me," to himself before his suitors appear, including two women in knockout red dresses, another who jumps on his back, one dressed as a showgirl, a nurse in a black gown, this year's woman in a wedding-ish dress, and a woman in gold who Locky seems immediately enraptured by.
He had goosebumps at the thought of meeting the woman of his dreams — and so do we!
"I'm here to find love. I would love to get down on one knee at the end. I'm the kind of guy that would do it," he concluded.
We're so excited for Locky's journey!
