USING a celebrity for the last instalment of The Bachelorette worked so there are rumours Channel 10 has decided to go down the same path for the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
Sophie Monk managed a solid six-month relationship with publican Stu Laundy following her stint on the reality TV show and now former Australian rugby player Nick Cummins may have the chance to do the same with reports claiming he is set to star as Australia’s most high profile single man.
If that’s the case Channel 10 will be hoping the “Honey Badger” is a ratings winner but there’s a big problem with him — the network may need to consider subtitles for every episode.

The 30-year-old larrikin is famous for his thick Aussie twang, use of rhyming slang and penchant for speaking using phrases the rest of the world has never heard before.
His interviews during his impressive playing career have made him an Australian cult hero. Cummins played 87 games for the now defunct Western Force in the Super Rugby competition after debuting in 2008 and wore the Wallabies jersey 15 times, spending most of his time on the wing.
