Tim Robards & Anna Heinrich (The Bachelor) – The Full Story

Everything you need to know about Australia's hottest (and nicest) couple

Tim Robards, 36, and Anna Heinrich, 32, met in the 2013 as part of the very first Australian Bachelor. 

Prior to going on the show, Anna worked as a criminal lawyer and Tim had been in business as a chiropractor for seven years.

Anna’s job at Watson’s Lawyers was said to pay $220 per hour for Anna’s services so it was a big risk giving it all up to find The One. Thankfully, she did and boy did we love seeing Tim and Anna fall in love.

Where did Anna and Tim grow up?

Anna grew up with her two sisters in Goulbourn, NSW but the girls were all schooled in the Sydney suburb of Edgecliff.

Meanwhile, Tim is a Newcastle boy born and bred, who moved to Sydney to do a degree in Medical Science, followed by a masters degree in chiropractic.

What type of person was Anna?

As the very first Aussie Bachelor, Tim was a major hit with men and women alike. His intellect, affability and amazing body make him one of the most popular Bachies to date. It’s a similar story for Anna. Ever sophisticated, Anna was never caught up in any house gossip and managed to maintain a healthy outlook on her attraction to Tim despite being under the spotlight of a 24/7 camera crew.

Anna was one of the most likeable contestants on The Bachelor 2013 and her relationships with the other housemates was always above board.

Did she do anything crazy?

The craziest thing Anna did was backflip off a catamaran in week 8, which was soooo cool and impressive. Ironically, Ali Oetjen, who went on to be The Bachelorette 2018, was in the same series. She followed Anna’s footsteps by jumping off the boat but landed badly and had to go to hospital.

How did the house visits go?

“I warned Tim about my dad but he didn’t know what he was getting himself into,” said the blonde beauty. Anna had never brought a boyfriend home before.

Her dad revealed to Tim that “Anna didn’t tell me she was getting into this and when she told me I went a bit crazy.” But ultimately he had a lot of respect for Tim and told Anna he was happy for her.

When Tim’s mum met Anna

The first time Tim’s family met Anna was in Phuket, Thailand and they warmed very quickly to her. Anna even shed a tear as she opened up and admitted to Tim’s mum that she loved him.

How did the final rose ceremony go?

At the final rose ceremony in Phuket, Thailand, Tim had to make a choice between model Rochelle Emmanuel-Smith and lawyer, Anna.

Turns out, there was no contest.

When Anna walked up the long rose-scattered walk, Tim had the biggest smile on his face and said; “I am falling madly and deeply in love wth you … and it feels so good to finally be able to tell you.”
