The 29-year-old hails from Castle Hill, Sydney and debuted for the Australian Swim Team at the 2015 Fina World Swimming Championships in Kazan, Russia.
Kurt’s most impressive feat was swimming in the 4×200 metre freestyle relay alongside his childhood idol, Olympic legend Grant Hackett. Their relay team went on to win Bronze. Kurt also beat Olympic medallist James Magnussen at the Victorian Swimming Championships in 2015.
The impressive elite athlete has competed in a number of various World Cups and International meets around the world, winning a number of swimming accolades. He narrowly missed out on the Australian 2016 Rio Olympics team by just 0.2 seconds.
Along with smashing out laps in the pool, Kurt is also a guest speaker at several schools, local sports clubs and participates in a number of community events. He also works as a lifeguard at Cherrybrook. A guy who gives back to the community? We stan him already!
As well as being fit AF, he’s also smart AF, with a Bachelor of Sports Business. We smell a high achiever!
Not only is his resume impressive, but he’s very easy on the eye too! Kurt is a professional model. His main gig is for Funky Trunks, where he appears in the brand’s marketing campaigns and is affectionately known as “Ken Doll.” A guy who looks like a human Ken Doll sounds too good to be true, right?!
Hopefully, we see this champion swimmer strutting his stuff on The Bachelorette’s red carpet!
In an interview with the NSW Institute of Sport, Kurt said in his spare time he likes to “surf, bush trek, take his dog for a walk… anything outdoors!” Sounds like Brooke’s kinda lifestyle!
Kurt honestly sounds like the full package! If he ends up being Brooke’s final pick – don’t worry, ladies! There’s still hope because he’s got a twin brother!
Who Are Brooke’s Suitors?
Start organising your office pool and place your bets on who is going to ultimately win Brooke’s heart, because good Lord, are they a good-looking bunch of contestants.
One familiar face you might remember is that of Bachelor alum Jaimie-Lee Dayz. Not only is she a former Bachelor contestant, but she was actually an intruder on Nick Cummins ‘the Honey Badger’s‘ season in 2018 – the same season as Brooke!
It was rumoured that the pair struck up a romance in the mansion at the time. However, the pair have denied anything of the sort.
What Do We Know About The Bachelorette 2021?
Fans of the Bachie franchise will remember when she publicly came out as bisexual during Nick’s season. Brooke, a proud Noongar-Yamatji woman, will also be the first Indigenous lead in the reality dating show’s history.
And if the recent promo for The Bachelorette 2021 is anything to go by, it looks like there is going to be drama aplenty!
Sh*t appears to go down when the youth worker’s suitors shy away from a relationship with the Bachelorette. Instead, they appear to hook up with each other!!
“I knew coming into this experience that there might be a possibility that guys and girls might have an attraction with one another,” Brooke said in the trailer before we can see two people holding hands.
A contestant also weighs in on the drama, revealing that there’s “one guy in [the mansion] who deviated away from wanting to get to know Brooke.” Interesting… *sips tea*
Brooke can also be heard mentioning “alarm bells” and “lies” before we get a glimpse of a tension-filled cocktail party. DRAMA!
The Bachelorette Australia 2021 begins on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:30pm on Channel Ten and 10Play.
