Leading Australian sports betting agency Sportsbet has opened betting on one of Australia's favourite reality television shows, The Bachelor Australia. Twenty-five beauties are set to compete for roses each week and ultimately to win the heart of the hunky Bachelor as the new season kicks off this Wednesday night.
This season provides some added interest for sports fans, with the Bachelor none other than the "Honey Badger" himself, Nick Cummins. The former Rugby Union international star is known not only for ability on the field, but his entertainment off it. Full of Australianisms (Badgerisms) and more cliches than you could poke a stick at, Cummins provided some of the greatest post-match interviews ever seen in sport, boosting his profile to the point of becoming a YouTube sensation.
However it seems that in everything he's achieved so far in life, Cummins has been unlucky in love, and now that opportunity comes in front of the entire nation on The Bachelor Australia. It's a series that is set to entertain a wide spectrum of followers, but if you need some extra incentive to tune in, then you can throw a few dollars on The Bachelor betting markets at Sportsbet for some extra fun.
Brittany, a thirty year old Radiographer from New South Wales heads the betting as the $3.00 favourite, ahead of Queenslander Property Valuer Sophie at $4.00. Twenty-three year old Cass, who actually knew Nick before the show, is a $6.50 chance while Brooke is the last lady to come in under double digits at $7.50.
“We’re counting down the sleeps until Wednesday and with 25 women in contention for the Honey Badger’s heart – we’re tipping it’ll be one of the best seasons yet,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
