Sophie Monk Has Been Announced As Australia’s Next Bachelorette

The TV and radio star is on a quest to find love.

Sophie Monk has been announced as the Bachelorette for 2017.

The TV and radio personality, who rose to fame as part of pop group Bardot, will be picking out of 16 suiters on Channel Ten’s popular show The Bachelorette later this year.

Sophie is definitely no stranger to having her love life publicised. She has a string of famous ex-boyfriends – including Hollywood actor Sam Worthington, musician Benji Madden and footballer Eric Grothe Junior – and has spoken out more than once about her struggles to find The One. 

Of the show, the 37-year-old told SMH“I moved back to Australia a couple of years ago, and I’ve embraced life back in the suburbs on the Gold Coast.”

“I love having my family nearby, and spending time with my nieces and nephews – but I’m missing that one person to share it with.”

Announcing this evening to her strong Instagram following of 166k – a number which is likely to skyrocket overnight – Sophie said, “Omg I’m the new @bacheloretteau. I’m so excited but wetting my pants.”

Last year’s Bachelorette, Georgia Love, had a successful run and is still with her beau Lee Elliott, while her runner-up, Matty J, is this year’s Bachelor.

So far, no air date has been set for Sophie’s season of The Bachelorette, but it’s safe to say, we’re ready and waiting.
