Ten announces Brooke Blurton as The Bachelorette

Western Australian youth worker Brooke Blurton will be the star of the first-ever mixed-gender edition of Ten’s The Bachelorette, with both men and women competing to win her heart.

She was first seen on the Nick Cummins season of The Bachelor in 2018, and left the mansion of her own accord.

The 26-year-old Noongar-Yamatji woman, Blurton, who also appeared on Bachelor In Paradise in 2019, is the first openly bisexual star on Ten’s popular reality show.

Blurton said: “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 Bachelorette is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Australia for Network Ten.

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.”

It’s the second year in succession that The Bachelorette producers have shaken up the tried and tested format, after two sisters appeared as joint Bachelerottes on the 2020 season.

Casting for the seventh season of The Bachelorette show is now open.
