Here's why everyone needs to sit up and take notice of The Bachelor frontrunner Irena Srbinovska

Including a very surprising talent.

Irena Srbinvoska entered the mansion with one of the more interesting props we've seen on a Bachelor premiere – a stethoscope.
Revealing she was a nurse, Irena asked to check Bachie Locky Gilbert's heartbeat.
And, to no one's surprise, the 31-year-old found she'd managed to get the hunky adventure's ticker racing.
"I think I heard your heart skip a beat right there," Irena joked with her hands inside Locky's shirt.

The entrance left quite the impression on Locky, and fans, who have Irena pegged as a front runner for the show.
There also been plenty of subtle clues the stunning contestant is the last lady standing, with the final rose in hand.
Judging by the Melbourne-based nurse's Instagram, filled with constant adventures, we can easily picture her fitting into Locky's life.
Here's everything we know about Irena, thus far.

She's a nurse (obvs)

With Locky's adventurous hobbies, a nurse for a girlfriend would surely be an added bonus.
And, from what we can tell Irena's well experienced and passionate about her job.
"Life as a nurse is messy, challenging and an endless cycle of shift work but it's also the most rewarding and inspiring job," Irena said of her job while recounting a less-than-pleasant experience with a vomiting patient.
"I am so proud to call myself a nurse and I am so blessed to be surrounded by such incredible nurses everyday."

She's a mum

Well, a mum to two very adorable fur babies.
Irena listed her Instagram bio as "proud mumma to Leo and Maggie", her cute cat and fluffy golden retriever.
With faces like these, we'd be proud too.

She’s a talented baker

They say the key to a man's heart is through his stomach, so Irena may be in luck on her quest to win over Locky.
The talented nurse has a flare for baking, taking out the Central Geelong Bake Off in 2013.
The dessert queen appeared in the local paper after taking out the competition, returning to defend her title in 2014 she revealed she may turn her hobby into a career one day.
"After last year I had a few offers to bake for local cafes," she told the Geelong Advertiser, "It's all been so worth it in the end."
Maybe we could see her on MasterChef next?
