The Bachelor Australia 2022 is already gearing up for a YUGE shake-up, and now, it has been revealed that Aussie basketballer Felix Von Hofe is helming the series.

While we have it on good authority that there is more than one Bachie babe this year, some sneaky paps caught Felix on his first date.

So, who is the new Bachelor Australia 2022?

Who Is Felix Von Hofe

Professional basketball player, Felix, is a 27-year-old Aquarius from Melbourne who is not only a weapon on the court but is one hell of a smart dude.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Felix studied at Eastern Washington University in the United States before hitting the court with Melbourne United.

Not only is he a sportsman, but the 6’5” player also worked for Crocmedia and is a brand ambassador for Sportsbet.

Felix has a popular and award-winning podcast called Trash Talk as part of his deal with the betting giant.

Alongside fellow b-baller Peter Hooley, the pair dish out NBL hot takes on the reg.

Felix’s Basketball Career

Felix is a small forward and began his stellar career as a member of the Victorian Junior State teams.

He also represented Australia in the under 17s and 19s before moving to Eastern Washington University.

His insane college career over four years saw him set the all-time record for three-pointers made, amongst some other awesome achievements.

Even though nobody got on the court due to the global pandemic, in 2020, he signed with the Melbourne Tigers — and this is where he has remained.

Let’s hope he’s just a player on the courts…
