What made you want to be The Bachelor New Zealand?
I was trying to renew my car rego and filled out the wrong form. Ha! To any person outside The Bachelor it must seem like a crazy task to take on. But to be honest meeting someone and the dating scene these days is crazy too. For me, it was great to be able to set aside some time to focus on meeting someone. What a unique and special way to meet a girl, who in turn will be unique and special to me.
