The Bachelorette Australia is returning soon to 10 and the network has announced that Australia’s next Bachelorette is former Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise contestant, Brooke Blurton.

The youth worker, presenter, and mental health advocate makes history by being the first Bachelorette that is indigenous Australian. Blurton is a Noongar/Yamatji woman.

The Bachelorette Australia host, Osher Günsberg, said: 

“We are a nation of people from so many different backgrounds, so many different cultures and so many different experiences, yet we all have one thing in common – we all want to be loved in a way that is meaningful to us. I can’t wait to get started on helping our Bachelorette Brooke find that kind of love.”

Hailing from Western Australia, Blurton identifies as bisexual and is ready to find love as she graces our screens on the popular reality TV show. She took to social media to announce the news to fans, saying, I’m ready, "I hope you are too! 🌹🏳️‍🌈."

Blurton appeared on the sixth season of The Bachelor in 2018, with Nick Cummins, aka The Honey Badger, and made it to the eve of the finale, before quitting. She also made an appearance on the second season of ‘Bachelor in Paradise.'

She said about being Australia’s next Bachelorette:

“I am so ready for this. I’ve done it twice before and now, having the opportunity to choose my person and who I want in my life, is a truly unique and special experience. My perfect person is someone that loves me for me. I hope they offer shared values and compassion for others. All the dreamy things! I’m so excited and hope that I finally find that person I’ve been waiting for.”

The new season will be the first time both women and men will participate. If you or someone you know are between the ages of 23-35 and want to be a part of the cast, casting applications are now open!

Filming will roughly commence mid June to mid August of 2021 and may take up to 12 weeks.
