Two Bachelor suitors will hand out roses when the series begins filming on the Gold Coast.

The 2022 season of The Bachelor is getting a big shakeup.

After Melbourne basketball player Felix Von Hofe was spotted enjoying a date with a gorgeous blonde on Monday, ‘transformation coach’ Thomas Malucelli was also seen filming the Channel 10 series on the Gold Coast at the same time.

It marks the first time in the franchise that women will compete for the affections of two men.

Thomas is a former restaurant manager from Sydney who has spent the last five years working as a life and fitness coach.

Despite having 11,500 followers on Instagram, Thomas’ social media accounts have been made private, which is a requirement for all cast members.

He worked as a restaurant manager at Michael Moore’s O Bar and Dining for seven years, before leaving the hospitality industry in 2017.

Thomas then launched his own health business, presenting himself as a transformational specialist and lifestyle coach.

It comes after Warner Bros. Australia, the company that produces The Bachelor, announced it would be raising the age limit for contestants.

While the show previously only featured contestants between the ages of 23 and 40, the age group was raised to 50 for this year’s season.

Last year’s season of The Bachelor was a ratings bust for Channel 10, with its premiere drawing just 482,000 metropolitan viewers.

This was a huge drop from the franchise’s peak in 2018, when 940,000 tuned in to watch Nick Cummins’ season launch.

The 2022 season will also see the show move from its old home in Sydney to a new mansion on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Meanwhile, her rival suitor Von Hofe, who stands at a whopping six-foot-five, is from East Melbourne and plays for the Melbourne Tigers.

Two-time team captain, he has traveled the world during his basketball career, playing in Spain, Africa, China, Germany, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

He is also educated, with a degree in arts and interdisciplinary studies from Eastern College Australia.

Felix, whose last name is pronounced ‘Hoff’, graduated from Wesley College in 2012 and attended the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

Melbourne Tigers general manager Chris Brooking described him as “a mature athlete” and “a weapon to be feared” as a basketball player.

Felix was busy looking for love on Monday, filming a date with a beautiful blonde in a Gold Coast park.
