Meet The Bachelor New Zealand for 2017

The Bachelor New Zealand is heading back to Three - and the man at the centre of it all has been announced.
Meet the third season bachelor, Zac Franich!
Hailing from the Hibiscus Coast, 28-year-old Franich is no stranger to a high-pressure environment having represented New Zealand competing at an international level in the sport of sprint kayaking. As well as being a qualified life guard, Franich recently completed a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation through AUT, and works in Sports Management – delivering a sports program at Orewa Surf Life Saving Club.
The modest and endearing bachelor, who describes himself as a “laid-back Kiwi bloke”, is ready to embrace this new opportunity.
“I’ve always stood by the fact that life should be an adventure and you should take every opportunity you’re given. When someone offers you the chance to meet beautiful and interesting women, travel the world, and hopefully find love at the end – it was a no brainer.”
When asked what he’s looking for, Franich is open minded in the search for his ideal woman: “I really don’t have a type; every woman has something special about them. I don’t want to go into this experience with a list of must-haves. I’m keeping an open mind and hope to find that spark with someone who shares some of my passions for travel, adventure, the ability to laugh and have fun.”
Zac Franich becomes the newest bachelor, following season one's Art Green, and season two's Jordan Mauger.
