Each year, betting agencies place their bet on who will take the coveted role as The Bachelor Australia.

While it’s safe to say that the series is almost dead in the water, Sportsbet has taken it upon themselves to put odds on some very famous faces for a potential 2022 season.

Even though Jimmy Nicholson’s iteration of the show had the lowest ratings of any Aussie Bachelor ever, apparently the agency still thinks that the below hopefuls have a chance.

Having a look through the very long list, we do feel like they are having an absolute laugh as who they have pipped to join the ranks of Sam Wood, Matt Agnew and Tim Robards.

We decided to choose the Top 10 (plus some honourable mentions) and place them on a scale of hello to f*ck no. You’re welcome!

1. Dr Chris Brown

Odds: $4.00

Verdict: Well, hello doctor!

Hello, jawline! While we’d absolutely LOVE to see the good doctor as The Bachelor, rumour has it Dr Chris would rather stick a fork in his eye than play the leading man. So, unfortunately, this is a no Bueno!

2. Lachlan Mansell

Odds: $34.00

Verdict: OMG YES!

This is a Lachy stan account and we will not hear another word about it. Give us an entire season with this little love bug and we will watch every. single. second!

3. Alex Rance

Odds: $3.00

Verdict: Have mercy!

Episode 11 of the So Dramatic! with Megan Pustetto podcast also revealed that AFL star, Alex, was the Plan B Bachelor and while he took to his Insta to put the rumours to bed, we’re hoping he has reconsidered, especially since he’s currently the number one pick!

4. Tony Armstrong

Odds: $3.00

Verdict: Where do we sign up?

Hilarious? Check. Good hair? Check. Bonafide hunk? Check. What more could you want?

5. George Goldfeder

Odds: $29.00

Verdict: Yes. Please.

From geek to chic, George wowed us all with his insanely hot makeover on Channel 9’s Beauty and the Geek. The Dungeons and Dragons fanatic may be a little different to Bachie’s past, but we are totally here for more of this:

6. Tommy Little

Odds: $13.00

Verdict: Eh.

The Project co-host and comedian, Tommy, has been in “the mix” for a few years now and to be honest, we’re not entirely here for it. But to be fair, neither is he, so no hard feelings.

7. Jett Kenny

Odds: $13.00

Verdict: Eh, well he looks good…

After giving off hot Viking vibes on SAS Australia last year, Jett wouldn’t be a totally terrible Bachie, but we’re not sure he’s got the personality to boot. However, as the So Dramatic! with Megan Pustetto podcast revealed in episode 11, Jett was the Plan A bachelor for Locky Gilbert’s season.

He declined which was a little bit of a blessing because SNOOZE FEST.

8. Sam Carraro

Odds: $17.00

Verdict: LOL

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? The Married at First Sight alum would make a terrible Bachelor…but at least it would be entertaining. Let’s just hope he doesn’t insult the women vying for his heart as he did to Gonzo!

9. Ciarran Stott

Odds: $67.00

Verdict: FML.

This has got to be a joke right? Considering his odds are set at $67, we’re assuming yes. This superspreader would be a potential OHS safety risk, let’s be honest!

10. Jason Engler

Odds: $101.00

Verdict: We demand to know who made this list!?

Considering he’s a straight-up troll, it would be a travesty on this nation to assign this former Married at First Sight cast member as The Bachelor.

Honourable Mentions

Also in the running is former Married at First Sight grooms Seb Guilhaus, Jake Edwards and Brett Helling, The Bachelorette’s Joe Woodbury and Jamie Doran (WTAF?!) and Newcastle Knights player Kalyn Ponga.

NOTE: Zac Efron is also on the list and while he would DEFINITELY be in our top 10 — there is NO WAY in hell that he would do it, so we gave the space to someone else.
