Six More Contestants Enter The Bachelorette Mansion!

With less than two weeks to go before Lexie Brown’s adventure begins, we’re announcing six more eligible bachelors hoping to make a great impression.

Escaping the normally cooler weather of Dunedin, Ben and Dave head north to meet our beautiful bachelorette. Joining them is funny man Itay alongside Hamish, who’ll hope to create memories with our leading lady.

The next set of gentlemen ready to walk the red carpet are:

Ben Masara, registered nurse, Dunedin
Dave Borrie, radio presenter, Dunedin
Hamish Boyt, content creator, Whangārei
Itay Dom, electrical engineer, Auckland
Josh Nielsen, plumber / gasfitter, Auckland
Paul Patterson, chef, Waiheke Island

Will Paul be a snack for our bachelorette, or could perhaps sparks fly with Josh?

All will be revealed when The Bachelorette New Zealand premieres on TVNZ 2, Monday 1st February at 7:30PM.
