It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

The promo for season three of The Bachelorette Australia has dropped – and it’s got us excited.

Starring the very single and stunning Sophie Monk, the classic Queen tune Somebody To Love makes for the perfect partnership as the 37-year-old makes her way down a street in Sydney bumping into happy couples along the way.

Cheesy? Perhaps. But we’ve all been there.

Watch the hilarious trailer below!

Next, while walking past a store, Sophie falls in love with a dress she sees in the window which conveniently happens to be red.

After going inside, the doors re-open and then, abracadabra, she’s turned into the Bachelorette!

Of her journey to find love, Sophie say’s she couldn’t be more excited to meet her potential suitors.

“I’m in the public eye, but away from that I’m just a regular woman and I’m open to committing fully to finding love,” she says, adding it was her mum who encouraged her to go on the show.

“I moved back to Australia a couple of years ago and I’ve embraced life back in the suburbs on the Gold Coast. I love having my parents and family nearby, but I’m missing that one person to share it with.”

So just what kind of man is Sophie looking for?

“I want to find above all else, a man who is kind and genuine.”

During an interview earlier this year, Sophie admitted she isn’t interested in bad boys.

“I would love them to not want fame,” she told

“Someone that really likes me for me. Someone that works because I don’t want to pay for everything. Just a man who has good self-esteem.”

While Network TEN is still yet to announce a launch date for The Bachelorette, we hear some of the men set to be vying for Sophie’s heart certainly tick all the boxes.
