The Bachelor Australia 2023 is upon us, and there’s not just one leading man but three getting ready to meet their match on the Channel 10 dating show. Meet the cast: Felix Von Hofe, Jed McIntosh and Thomas Malucelli.

Featuring a 6ft 5in basketball player, US-based musician and wellness coach, the ladies will be sure to have their pick next year. The new season that fans are eager to feast their eyes on will drop on January 8, 2023.

The show began filming on May 15, 2022, and wrapped up a few months later. Let’s get to know the three leading men, including what they all do for a living, as well as what they’re up to ahead of their reality TV debut.

Bachelor Australia: Jed McIntosh

Jed is a 25-year-old music artist and session drummer. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, he’s recently moved to the USA with the hopes of expanding his music career, and has released seven songs just this year.
