Ten has announced who will be the next Bachelorette. Introducing, 27-year-old Victorian journalist Georgia Love.

Love, who has been working in Hobart as a newsreader, resigned on Friday from her role.

In an interview with news.com.au reporter Jonathan Moran, Love said

“Being on television for work and on television for this [Bachelorette] just wouldn’t have worked for either party so I’ve actually left my job,” Love said.

“That makes the whole thing even scarier and exciting and more daunting because I’ve worked really hard my whole career to get to this point and I’ve loved what I’ve done but this is how serious I am, that I want to find somebody and I want to settle down that I’ve actually taken a step away from all of that.”

TEN will air the local version of The Bachelor staring former contestant Richie before airing this season later in the year.
