Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE BOX - AMELIA SAW NA­TIONAL TV WRITER

Osher Guns­berg’s face is syn­ony­mous with roses and re­al­ity TV ro­mance. Now, The Bach­e­lor host is back again, this time to sup­port Matthew John­son, oth­er­wise known as Matty J, on his quest for love. Al­though re­jected by Bach­e­lorette Ge­or­gia Love last year, John­son has gamely de­cided to give find­ing love on na­tional tele­vi­sion one last shot. And, in a show of sol­i­dar­ity, Guns­berg has opened up on his own ro­man­tic past and why this sea­son of The Bach­e­lor is un­like any other.

“De­spite 13 years of re­al­ity tele­vi­sion, my heart is not yet a hard­ened piece of black ob­sid­ian”

This is your fifth sea­son of The Bach­e­lor, why do you keep com­ing back? I love my job. I get paid to help peo­ple fall in love. And de­spite 13 years of work­ing in re­al­ity tele­vi­sion, my heart is not yet a hard­ened piece of black ob­sid­ian. And, I do ac­tu­ally feel emo­tion, com­pas­sion and em­pa­thy for the beau­ti­ful hu­mans who en­trust us with their dream of find­ing love.

What sets this sea­son apart? These are the hottest girls ever. You can ask my wife (Au­drey Grif­fin). She’s a makeup artist on the show and she’ll tell you: all the girls are smokin’.

Hot­ter than past sea­sons? Oh, yeah. They’re re­ally hot, beau­ti­ful, beau­ti­ful women. They’re smart, funny, cre­ative women. Matty J is a very clever, funny per­son so he’s go­ing to want some­one who’s go­ing to be able to match him.

OSHER DOES EN­JOY HIS WORK

Does the show have any new tricks in store for view­ers? Well, we’ve ex­ceeded our he­li­copter count this year. And there weren’t many shirts avail­able, so Matty is shirt­less quite a bit.

You’ve been through a di­vorce al­ready, do you still till be­lieve in love? Ab­so­lutely — are you kid­ding ding me? I’ve al­ways be­lieved in n love. It’s the one thing that sets us hu­mans apart from beasts. s.

What’s the most ro­man­tic c thing you’ve ever done? The way I pro­posed to my wife was pretty ro­man­tic. It in­volved a lot of plan­ning. I got my friend’s to (Daniel make Macpher­son)the ring mmIand then mumI lob­bied to get Au­drey alone.ne. I waited for the right day when hen we were on hol­i­day on Her­ronn Is­land and waited for the sun­set un­set to do it. But it doesn’t need d to be ro­man­tic pro­pos­als, he­li­copter­sopters and sea planes. It can be a hid­den Post-It note. So, I might leave a note for my wife aroundound the house. And I’ll write some­thing on it like: Miss you, can’t wait to see you tonight.
