Moses Mackay of Sol3 Mio fame will be dishing out roses in the hope he meets someone special on the new season of The Bachelor NZ and it is now time to meet six of the women who will be vying for his heart...
Occupation: Paediatric nurse
Freya once broke off an engagement, so she knows what she wants. She hopes the Bachelor will be driven, compassionate, and respectful.
"I've been very, very single and have been for a little while now, so I was looking to find a spark with someone," she says.
After going on plenty of dates without any luck, maybe Moses will be the man for her.
Lana Jayne Ennis
Occupation: Critical care nurse/ health coach
Lana has spent 15 years overseas and returned to Aotearoa just before the Covid-19 pandemic began.
With her travel bug on hold, she's after true love and a man with emotional intelligence. She's not a stranger to romantic gestures either.
"[I've] flown from Australia to NZ and woken [my former partner] up at 5am with a kiss. I love to surprise! Just turn up when they least expect it!"
Her special skill is parallel parking, a convenient talent in any relationship.
Occupation: PE and health secondary teacher
If Moses doesn't mind heading back to a high school gym class, this could be the woman for him.
Georgia's friend signed her up for the show, and she thought "why not" when she got through.
She's looking for someone spontaneous, family-orientated, motivated, and adventurous.
Occupation: Personal trainer
Cirrus is a national climbing champ and wants someone who will slot in with her active lifestyle. Not only is she an amazing rock climber, but she can also solve a Rubik's cube.
She hopes to meet someone caring, outdoorsy, and ideally a best friend.
The unpredictable events of 2020 inspired her to say yes to being a contestant. She wants to get out of her comfort zone and improve her confidence.
Kate was inspired to sign up for The Bachelor because she felt she was going through a quarter-life crisis. She's also very self-aware about her love life so far.
"I tend to instantly friend-zone boys - which means I have a lot of male friends but no romantic interests. What better way to kick off dating than by debuting on national television?"
Here's hoping she doesn't friend-zone Moses!
Occupation: Production finance analyst
Chanel once wanted to be in the Air Force, but her part-time job saw her go down a different path and work in the makeup industry.
Now she's working as an analyst, and looking for someone to settle down with. She's excited about the opportunity to be a contestant on The Bachelor.
"I wanted to be a contestant to have a bit of an adventure around New Zealand, to meet
some like-minded incredible wāhine; and possibly find a wonderful man out of it all! Who wouldn't say yes to that?"
