Tongues were sent wagging over the weekend after astrophysicist and former Bachelor Matt Angew posted a thirst trap of himself looking mighty fine on Sunday, where he posed shirtless against a brick wall, alongside the caption, “It’s a beautiful day” — and good Lord, it is now.
Matt is also sporting some luscious dark locks and a manly AF beard in the Instagram pic while holding what appears to be his morning coffee and ah, what we’d give to be that mug…
This fresh look is a departure from the geeky boy-next-door vibe the 34-year-old debuted on his season of The Bachelor in 2019, and all we can say is: if Jesus Christ was from Sydney, he’d look like Matt Agnew.
Unsurprisingly, EVERYONE is here for it, with one Instagram user echoing our thoughts with a comment reading, “Ready for the Jesus Christ Superstar musical”.
“My Apple Watch just told me to breathe,” model Jess King also commented underneath the pic, which has (at the time of publication) over 6,500 likes and hundreds of comments thirsting after buff Dr Matt.
“Totally Tarzan vibes.”
“A hot nerd, just my type.”
“Excuse me what,” was all author Rosie Waterland could say and well, same.
Earlier this year, Matt appeared on Today Extra to discuss NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter landing in April where he debuted the long hair sans beard, with host David Campbell cheekily probing the data scientist about how long he’ll grow his locks.
‘I’m thinking I potentially go shoulder length,’ Matt told David. ‘I’ve got past that really awkward uncomfortable stage, so I’ve got to just push.’ And push he did!
Matt has spent the better part of 18 months flying under the radar after his split with Bachelor finale pick Chelsie McLeod in November 2019, just mere weeks after their whirlwind romance finished airing.
He released a statement to his social media at the time saying that their relationship hadn’t translated into the real world, before going silent.
“It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life,” he penned to his followers.
Chelsie, who was vocal about the Bachie couple’s very public split, has since found love with a new man by the name of Ricki Dehaan, who she debuted in a cute Christmas Instagram post in December 202o.
