09 May, 2013 by Emily Blatchford

Popular US reality series The Bachelor is coming to Australia.

Network Ten announced it has commissioned an Australian production of the show, to be produced by Shine Australia. 


Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, says, “The Bachelor is one of the longest-running and most successful television franchises in the world, with productions in 24 countries. We are thrilled to be working with Shine to take this iconic show and create a uniquely Australian entertainment event.”

Shine Australia Chief Executive Officer, Mark Fennessy, says,“There are few marquee brands which have enjoyed the same connection with audiences worldwide as The Bachelor. We're delighted to bring this brilliant series to Australian viewers and look forward to introducing our very own Prince Charming."

The Bachelor follows a single bachelor and a number of bachelorettes who all claim to be looking for love.

Over the weeks, the bachelor presents his favourite ladies with a red rose during an elimination process which will eventually whittle down the bachelorettes to just one.

Network Ten are currently calling for interested bachelors and bachelorettes to register their information here

The Network plans to start production on the series shortly and says it will hit Australian screens later this year.
