In another first for the Australian franchise, she will have men and women competing for her heart in a move that will hopefully bring much-needed diversity to the show.
With the latest season resulting in very low ratings for the usually popular show, it is hoped that Brooke’s season will give The Bachelor franchise a much-needed boost.
And it seems excitement is already flourishing in the comments on the video, which was posted to The Bachelorette Instagram account last night.
“Can’t wait of this one!! This is the one I was talking about months ago. Can’t wait to see both female and male contestants,” an excited follower wrote.
“I CAN’T WAIT” someone shared in all caps.
“HOW CAN I WATCH IN THE US?!?!,” an international fan wrote, again all in caps, proving how widespread the appetite for Brooke’s season is.
While The Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons usually air in quick succession, there might be a small delay in Brooke’s season due to a family tragedy that saw her return home to Western Australia.
Brooke lost her sister, Ky, in early August, while still filming the show.
She thanked production for their support in the wake of the tragedy, as well as her friends and family, who helped her get over to Western Australia quickly despite COVID-19 restrictions.

We first met Brooke on season six of The Bachelor, where Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins famously chose no one.
Brooke came in third, but left of her own accord when she couldn’t determine whether Badge was actually into her or not.
The youth worker has enjoyed a flourishing media career ever since, and seemed very excited to be selected as Bachelorette.
“I’m ready, I hope you are too! 🌹🏳️🌈,” she wrote on Instagram when the news was announced, sharing the classic image of herself in a beautiful red dress, holding a bouquet of roses.
