UK Bachelor 2019

Seven things you need to know about The Bachelor UK star Alex Marks - job, age, ex's

Channel 5 have officially announced Alex Marks as The Bachelor 2019.

A 31-year-old personal trainer from London, Alex certainly has all the physical attributes to rev the engines of the nation.

But besides the press releases and loose facts about how he looks just like Aquaman, who actually is Alex Marks?

Here are seven facts you didn’t know!

Alex Marks – UK Bachelor 2019

Alex Went to Uni

According to his LinkedIn profile, Alex studied physical education at Leeds Metropolitan University from 2007-2009.

That’s right, you can do PE outside of secondary school!

Ales hails from Kent, however, and moved back to the London area as a personal trainer at Fitness First, before working his way up to launching his own business.

He’s an Actual Giant

Alex is an actual giant, standing at 6ft 6

That means he’s got a whole three inches on Aquaman actor Jason Momoa… three inches!

Alex is a Business Owner

In his Channel 5 interview, Alex confessed that he has put a potential love life on the backburner while launching his own fitness company.

Alex owns ‘On The Marks’, a fitness company based in Clapham, which he launched last year.

This isn’t his first business venture, though, having also launched Zinc Fitness in 2012.

He Didn’t Always Have Wavy Locks

For some, Alex’s wavy locks are the selling point of his look.

For others, however, they’re probably not into it.

Which do you prefer?

Alex Loves His Abs

As with all personal trainers, Alex loves his abs.

His Instagram is full of topless photos, and you can join the action by following him at @on.your.marks.

He Has Zero Ex’s

We trolled Alex’s entire Instagram attempting to find an ex-girlfriend and found absolutely nothing.

Perhaps he really is the ultimate Bachelor? Perhaps there’s a reason he doesn’t have an ex’s? Perhaps he just wants the opportunity to promote his company?

Or, perhaps we’re just extremely cynical.

Alex in Five Words

During a 2016 interview with The Beauty Shortlist, Alex was asked to describe himself in five words.

He answered: “Ambitious, insightful, selfless, genuine, passionate.”

Only time will tell on those answers…
