The Bachelor Australia heartthrob Matt Agnew is unrecognisable after shaving off his luscious locks.

The dramatic makeover, while shocking to fans, comes admirably as the reality star partook in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave on Tuesday morning.

Appearing on Today Extra, Matt bid farewell to his beloved mop with the help of hosts Sylvia Jeffreys and David Campbell.

When asked why the astrophysicist decided to throw his support behind the Leukaemia Foundation, Matt confessed he has loved ones who have been “affected by blood cancers”.

However, he added: “I don’t think you need to have someone in your life to want to contribute and try to do something positive by raising funds through the World’s Greatest Shave that go directly to funding critical medical research for treatments and diagnoses.”

Matt, who headed up The Bachelor in 2019, revealed his goal is to raise $30,000. Fans are still able to donate to the cause through the World’s Greatest Shave website.

What Is The World’s Greatest Shave?

The World’s Greatest Shave (originally dubbed “Shave for a Cure”) began after an event organised by the Graydon family in NSW in 1998.

Eric Graydon had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and needed to relocate for emergency treatment. His family challenged the Leukaemia Foundation to raise awareness for those suffering the disease, suggesting they shave the greatest number of heads within a 24-hour period.

After the media became involved, the Graydon family, along with the Leukaemia Foundation, raised $80,000 and 200 heads were shaved.

A year later, the first official Shave for a Cure event raised $1.85 million, with 1,700 heads shaved.

To date, over 2 million Aussies have shaved their heads in a bid to raise funds to find a cure for blood cancer.
