We now have an exact air date for the next season of The Bachelor Australia, and we know that our hopeful single will be 31-year-old airline pilot Jimmy Nicholson, who will be making his reality television debut with his search for love.

At the time of being announced as the newest Bachie, Jimmy said, “I am a big believer in embracing any opportunity that presents itself, especially if it has the potential to change your life for the better.

“The journey ahead will be one of the most challenging experiences that I have ever undertaken, however, I am very excited to meet someone that I could potentially spend the rest of my life with.”

After some “totally for the purposes of work” digging around his Instagram (which is, thankfully, now public), we learned that Jimmy loves dogs, surfing, boating, hiking, footy and leaving his shirt at home his family.

In fact, in a new trailer for the show released by Network Ten, Jimmy reveals more about his family and how his parents might just have inspired him to apply for the show in the first place.

“I’ve got a really close family,” he says in the clip. “My parents are madly in love, and that is exactly what I want.”


He continues, “I want someone who I would be proud to bring home to my family — their opinion means everything to me.”

Also in the trailer, Jimmy confesses to being quite methodical and loving a good checklist when it comes to work (which is a relief to hear seeing as he’s a pilot!) but, as he says, “when it comes to love — there’s no manual”.

Jimmy says that while he is entering the reality dating show as a single man, he is hoping to leave it in a relationship with someone he can spend the rest of his life with.

Well, we’re rooting for Jimmy and if it doesn’t work out, you know where to find us. 😉

The Bachelor Australia will premiere Wednesday, 21 July at 7.30pm on 10 and 10 Play, so mark your calendars, and be sure to get to the couch at least 30 minutes prior to boarding, because love is (hopefully!) in the air!
