First look at The Bachelor: rose petals and selfies

IS THE next Bachelor a good guy?

That certainly is how he's being portrayed in the first look at the third season of Channel 10's reality dating show The Bachelor.

"I'm just a laid-back, regular Aussie guy just looking for what everyone wants, real love," Sam Wood says in the 90-second clip.

The video also features footage of Wood meeting several of the bachelorettes who will be vying for his attention, with one taking a selfie with him.


Wood, 34, is a former personal trainer who now runs a children's health and fitness company from Melbourne.

Last year's Bachelor Blake Garvey caused controversy when he split with winner Sam Frost just two months after proposing to her during the show's finale in South Africa.

Garvey went on to reconnect with second runner-up Louise Pillidge. Frost, meanwhile, will star in the upcoming first season of The Bachelorette.

The Bachelor season three is expected to air soon on Channel 10.
