Meet the Queensland Bachelorettes

A SINGLE mum, a fashion designer, an actor and an energy healer - meet the Queensland Bachelorettes vying for the heart of Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins.

With the rugby star having grown up in Brisbane, nine of the 25 women on this year's The Bachelor, which airs on Channel 10 on Wednesday, hail from our state.
