Belinda, 29, VIC

Door-to-door sales representative Belinda is ambitious, quirky and loves to dance but doesn’t think she’s attractive to men.

“They don’t like my curly hair…guys tend to like tan skin and big boobs, which I’m not.”

Beth, 39, WA

With a graduate diploma in psychology, deep-thinker Beth is also something of a free-spirit.

She’s ready to settle down and start a family with the right guy – someone she can have a laugh with.

Booka, 31, WA

As a member of heavy metal band Make Them Suffer, musician Booka has had some lonely years on the road touring but is ready to find her special someone.

Brett, 31, VIC

Hopeless romantic and family man Brett is after a naturally beautiful, funny, laidback girl to settle down with.

The electrician and psychology student also volunteers with the Salvation Army to assist the homeless, and his dream is to open a treatment centre to help the vulnerable.

Bryce, 31, ACT

If any Canberrans recognise this guy it’s because his voice graces the airwaves on Hit 104.7 radio!

The super-confident radio announcer was previously in a five year relationship and was even engaged but made the tough decision to call it off.

Cameron, 32, VIC

Crane operator Cameron may look tough with his tattoos and shaved head, but in reality he’s just a “teddy bear”.

After being single for two years since returning from working in the mines in Western Australia, he’s ready for a wife and kids.

Coco, 30, NSW

Loud, bubbly and vibrant, this Pilates studio owner has chosen her career over relationships in the past.

Coco was previously married but things ended after six months because she always felt she was running second to her mother-in-law.

Ex AFL player Jake is now the CEO of mental health charity Outside The Locker Room but is ready for the next step of marriage and children.

Jason, 35, QLD

As one of the last singletons in his friendship group, party boy Jason has a way with the ladies but has struggled to find The One.

The construction estimator is searching for a girl with a sense of humour like him, and a relationship with the “spark that Hollywood makes movies out of”.

Joanne (Credit: Nine)

Joanne, 39, VIC

Outgoing and vivacious, barber Joanne meets many men in her line of work but hasn’t found the funny and laidback guy of her dreams.

The single mum of three boys is honest and has no-filter, but admits to having a short fuse and, at times, a jealous personality.

A dedicated family man, Patrick wants to settle down and start his own but doesn’t want a “fake” or “plastic” looking partner.

Rebecca (Credit: Nine)

Rebecca, 27, WA

A force to be reckoned with, confident business manager Rebecca knows what she wants when it comes to her husband.

Recently separated from her AFL player ex fiancé, she’s looking for someone with good banter, cheek and attitude but they’d better watch out if they love watching Netflix at night or are an open-mouth food chewer!

Rusell (Credit: Nine)

Rusell, 37, SA

This True Blue diesel mechanic owns his own business but wants to find an active, fun-loving and adventurous partner.

After proposing to a stranger as a joke while on holiday in Las Vegas, he went on to marry her but they divorced after a year. Having been single for four years, he’s ready for love again.

Kerry (Credit: Nine)

She’s friendly with her ex-husband after their “super amicable” split two years ago, and now this bride is looking for a man who has a sense of humour, a thirst for adventure and takes a “glass half full” approach to life.

After being single for six years, this prison case manager and F45 trainer says he’s looking for a love as strong as his friends Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.
