As if two leads for The Bachelor Australia 2022 weren’t enough, a THIRD suitor has been reported to have joined the franchise. His name? Jedidiah “Jed” McIntosh.

As reported in episode 183 of the So Dramatic! podcast, bosses over at Warner Bros. and Ten are revamping the franchise with some spicy additions. This includes not one but TWO Bachie baes this year — possibly even more!

Not only is the show’s format going to be hugely different this year, but all signs are pointing to there being more than one leading man. Say, what?!

Now, according to insiders, drummer Jed will search for love alongside Felix Von Hofe and Thomas Philbin-Malucelli.

As per Big Sound Percussion, Jed’s passion for drumming kickstarted at 4-years-old before he began playing professionally at 13.

Heading on tour at just 16, the drummer soon wound up in LA working with a number of artists.

His percussionist credits include gigs alongside Kylie Minogue, Pharrell Williams, T-Pain and Sean Paul.

Jed is currently one-third of Melbourne-based band Mood Monroe, alongside his brother Jackson, and mate Bailey Simpson.

Not much else is known about the potential new Bachie given his Instagram is private, as per the rules during filming.

A fan page did step up to the plate, providing some pics for our stalking purposes. However, the page was deleted entirely soon after news broke of Jed’s Bachie involvement. Is this a hint that the drummer runs his own fan account????

Anywho. Of course, we nabbed screenshots and TBH, it’s giving Machine Gun Kelly all over again.

What Do We Know About Who Jed McIntosh Will Star Alongside On The Bachelor?

Taking to the spotlight this week after being pictured filming dates for The Bachelor, both Thomas and Felix are successful in their own rights.

Professional basketball player, Felix, is a 27-year-old Melburnian 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.

As for Thomas, the 35-year-old is a former restaurant manager and Isabody [Isagenix] Global Champion.

Once a hospo worker, the silver fox turned to fitness and health after working in the hospitality industry for 18 years.

Now a transformation specialist and lifestyle entrepreneur, according to his “about me” page, the health coach became the “fittest and healthiest” he’s ever been at 32.

The Bachelor Australia Host Osher Günsberg Says Paparazzi Pics Are Decoys

After the original news that Felix was the new Bachelor, host Osher Günsberg shut down filming rumours.

In a text sent to Brisbane radio’s Stav, Abby & Matt, he revealed he was still in Sydney.

“I’m still in New South Wales, still to get a haircut and shave properly. I haven’t even dinged my wedding ring on a champagne flute, so I don’t know what this is,” he wrote.
