The Bachelorette’s Frazer Neate has quickly become an understated frontrunner, and all the signs point to him winning Elly’s heart

Modest, but memorable.

Elly and Becky Miles' The Bachelorette Australia journey only just getting started, but already we have a frontrunner capturing one leading lady's attention.
And nope, it's not Joe, who seemingly has a head start on the others given his history with Elly.
It's not Shannon either, though his chemistry with Becky is undeniable.
Yep, we're talking about one Frazer Neate, a shy and unassuming Queenslander who seemed to instantly strike up a connection with Elly.

Already being dubbed a Hemsworth look-alike by fans, it's no surprise Elly was instantly smitten by the quiet and handsome contestant.
Speaking to the camera, Elly giggled: "Frazer... he is gorgeous! Physically, hello Christmas!"
Trying to coax Frazer out of his shell, Elly asked the 28-year-old concreter from Queensland why he signed up for the show.
"I want to find love. At the end of the day, I'm sure everyone here is. This is sort of a new challenge, and I'm looking forward to whatever comes out of the opportunity," Frazer replied.

Frazer's rugged good looks and charming nervousness wasn't all that caught fans attention however, there were many subtle editing clues that point to him becoming a frontrunner.
The "wifey/hubby edit" has been a long-running theory surrounding contestants' entrances on the first night, and if any of Becky and Elly's potential matches received the edit, it was Frazer.
Fans noted the swirling, romantic music in the background as Frazer entered the mansion, as well as how much time his entrance received on screen – just enough to make him memorable but not too much that he's an obvious big name.
Could Frazer be the one for Elly? (Channel Ten)
"Frasier getting the wifey edit. #TheBacheloretteAU" one Twitter user commented.
"Fraser is top 2," another confidently shared.
In this year's season of The Bachelor with Locky Gilbert, fans instantly recognised the slow paced music edit for eventual winner Irena Srbinovska.
With every season of the franchise, betting agencies are already placing odds on the winner, and judging by past seasons, they're typically quite accurate.
They currently have Frazer as the top pick for Elly while Pete Mann is placed to win Becky's heart.
