The next Bachelor is a ‘geek’.

Channel 10 has revealed former Beauty and the Geek star Matt Agnew is the man set to melt hearts across Australia during his search for love on this year’s series of The Bachelor.

But who is Agnew and what does he do? (See what we did there?)

Matt is a “dashing astrophysicist” (that means he’s super smart) who specialises in studying space, stars, planets and the universe.

The 31-year-old was born and raised in Adelaide and Perth but now lives in Melbourne where he works at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology. He also has a Masters of Science in Astrophysics from Sweden’s Lund University.

So, what kind of woman is Matt looking for?

“I think a lot of the characteristics are things everyone looks for to a degree. Someone who’s supportive, compassionate, warm, caring, generous,” Agnew said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

“Someone who’s fun and doesn’t mind being a bit silly.”

Matt joins the likes of Tim Robards, Blake Garvey, Sam Wood, Richie Strahan, Matty J and Nick ‘Honey’ Badger’ Cummins in looking for love on The Bachelor.

We wish him the best of luck for finding his Mrs Right!

The Bachelor premieres on Channel 10 later this year.
