Thirst traps at the ready ladies, there’s just one sleep to go before the 2019 season of The Bachelorette begins. Need to get your stalk on before the Angie Kent’s (yep the girl from Gogglebox!) quest for love officially kicks off? No need to worry, we’ve trawled the ‘gram for each of the lad’s personal Instas. You’re welcome.
Nope, not a typo, meet Timm with two Ms. Timm, a Fireproofer from Victoria, is 100% going to play the blokey-bloke with a hidden soft side on the show.

"Diving head first into the Abyss, the deep blue, the unkown all whilst holding my breath, attempting to stay calm and present has been something I’ve become accustomed to. My next adventure feels very similair diving head first, holding my breath and hoping for the best. @bacheloretteau. Tune in Wednesday 7:30 @channel10au #bacheloretteau
Meet 34-year-old freediver and hot dad, Adam. Old mate Adz is seriously slipping on his Instagram game but hopefully, Channel 10 helps him pick up the slack during the season.
Angie must have specified a thing for dudes with long hair because 25-year-old Ciarran also falls right into that type. He describes himself as a “sexual Willy Wonka”, whatever the flip that means, but personally I’m picking up sexual Lucius Malfoy vibes.
Glenn is this season’s Jarrod, just look at his Instagram and try and prove me wrong. Fun suit though!
Oh, look, another long-haired bachelor. This one plays AFL! He’s also never had a girlfriend, which for some reason, I find very endearing.
Carlin is a 30-year-old fitness trainer from Syd and from the looks of his Instagram, he might also be an influencer. And if he’s not, he definitely will be by time season five is over and done with.
Haydn looks like the sweetest little munchkin that I’m not even deterred by the lack of vowels in his name.
Jamie Dornan, Jamie Doran, does a single letter make a difference? Not much in my books. Ladies, we have a winner. Also, his lack of an official Bachelorette pic is a weird flex but I’m into it.
Jess is a local politician who rides a scooter for fun so I’m kind of on high alert already.
According to his Insta bio, Jackson takes the ‘r’ out of pretty so count on him to stir the pot.
Not be confused with Jess, Jesse is his own man. That man happens to be an insanely jacked 31-year-old from Perth.
Josh owns a mobile zoo and his Insta handle is @your_reptile_guy, which again, weird flex but okay.
Matt’s a 27-year-old BMX stunt rider from Queensland so he’s basically the male version of Nicole-with-an-h from the last season of The Bachelor.
Tom from Brisbane is apparently looking for a woman who is “genuine, caring, adventurous, friendly and kind without taking herself too seriously”. TBH, that’s a lot to ask when you’re competing for love against a bunch of other blokes.
If this were an Instagram handle competition, Mitch aka @ay.how.u.doin wins hands down.
Nirangaa is excited to be the first Sri Lankan Bachelor, which yes, is very exciting. However, I hope we don’t see a repeat of the Persian incident.
Oliver has already tacked ‘official’ onto the end of his Instagram handle so you can’t say he isn’t ambitious.
Scot, 27, is this year’s token contestant from Byron Bay. There’s always one.
Do not be confused. Warwick is ‘NOT A PUBLIC FIGURE’ according to his bio. It seems like he prefers, ‘SOCIAL INFLUENZA’ and the shift key, apparently.
Finally, we have Kayde, who apparently doesn’t have Instagram. Welcome to 2019 Kayde.
