MediaWorks is pleased to announce that the casting call for bachelorettes wanting to try their luck at finding true love is officially open for season two of The Bachelor New Zealand.

Producers welcome applications from females aged between 21 and 35 who are genuinely looking for love. MediaWorks will not be doing a casting call for the role of the Bachelor. His identity will be a closely guarded secret, to be revealed within the first episode of the series, which will go to air in the first half of next year.

Season one saw Bachelor Art Green find love with Auckland Media Sales Executive Matilda Rice. Still happily together, Green’s advice for girls considering whether to give it a go. 

“Just relax and be a confident version of yourself. Think carefully, it is a big decision and quite possibly life changing – there is a very real possibility that you will meet someone special.”

After the success of the inaugural season, The Bachelor New Zealand will continue to encompass TV, radio and digital elements, reinforcing the company’s commitment to cross-platform engagement opportunities across its businesses.

MediaWorks Radio national network MORE FM will again play a key role in delivering the second series of the format, which is a worldwide success with 30 countries taking part in their own search for love. 

As well as  receiving wider MediaWorks Radio support through its networks, including The Edge, Breeze and Mai, MediaWorks digital platforms will be delivering additional exclusive series content to viewers, enabling the audience to connect with The Bachelor New Zealand on-screen talent through mobile, tablet and desktop digital platforms.

The Bachelor New Zealand season two will follow a group of bachelorettes who are willing to put their hearts on the line to win the attention and affection of the Bachelor through a series of group dates, one-on-one dates, and of course, the famous rose ceremony.

During the rose ceremony, the Bachelor presents a single red rose to each of the bachelorettes that he would like to get to know better. Any woman left without a rose must pack her bags and leave The Bachelor New Zealand mansion.

As the series draws to a close, the Bachelor will invite a few special bachelorettes on a romantic getaway. From there, two ladies will join him on an adventure date where he will ultimately decide which bachelorette has won his heart and a place in his life.

Andrew Szusterman, MediaWorks Group Entertainment Content Director says, ‘The Bachelor NZ was the breakout hit of 2015 and we go into a second season knowing this show works, not only with the audience but also finding love. Art and Matilda are complete proof of that. If you’ve been thinking about being a part of the next season of The Bachelor NZ I encourage you to register, it really could be you next time.”
