Felix Von Hofe, 27, VIC

Why did you agree to be a Bachelor? 

I’ve always felt like I’m a bit out of place on the current dating scene. I don’t really use dating apps and rarely reply to social media messages, let alone texts! I prefer to meet people in person.

Tell us about your interests and hobbies.

Anything social! I love heading out for dinner or lunch, or anywhere where I’m around other people. I try to fit a gym session in most days with a little group of guys I’ve known for a long time as well. With that said, I’m also an avid solo moviegoer… 

Have you been in love before?

I don’t think so. I’ve felt strongly for people before, but I’ve also been content to move on without them. I think if I’d have fallen in love, then I wouldn’t feel that way.

When was your last relationship and why did it end?

About two years ago. My best friend was meeting up with her best friend and it just turned into a double date. We tried a relationship, but it didn’t work out. She’s still one of my closest friends.

What would a Bachelorette need to do to get your attention? 

Be upbeat and funny! I love to be able to banter back and forth, and nothing would be better than someone who can give it just as well as they take it.

What’s your ultimate dream date. 

Anything where it ends up hurting to laugh – if we’re both laughing the whole time then it can’t get much better.
