EL­I­GI­BLE sin­gles have put them­selves out there in the search for love.

Plenty of bach­e­lors and bach­e­lorettes en­tered the Sun­shine Coast Daily’s el­i­gi­ble sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion in the hope of find­ing that spe­cial some­one, and now it’s up to you to choose your favourites.

Twenty-seven sin­gles let the Daily know what they’re search­ing for in that spe­cial some­one and what their per­fect date would en­tail.

Two fron­trun­ners have emerged since vot­ing opened last Thurs­day.

Bren­dan West never in­tended to be the Coast’s most el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lor, but was nom­i­nated by some col­leagues as a bit of a prank.

“The girls from work en­tered me with­out my pre­vi­ous knowl­edge, and I woke up to an in­ter­est­ing few mes­sages from a few friends,” he said.

“At the time it was a bit of a shock, and not some­thing I’d nor­mally do ... but it was all good fun.”

The 21-year-old WIN News cam­era­man has so far scored 50 per cent of votes for the Coast’s favourite bach­e­lor.

While he’s not driv­ing around the Coast film­ing news sto­ries, he’s also train­ing to be an aux­il­iary fire­fighter.

“On the job we see a lot ob­vi­ously, and I wanted to give back in a stronger way,” he said.

“I met a bloke on the job and he in­tro­duced me to the Lands­bor­ough Ru­ral Fire Sta­tion.

“Last week I just com­pleted my min­i­mal fire­fighter cer­tifi­cate, so I can now re­spond to all call­outs to the sta­tion.

“It’s pretty busy al­ready, but there’s al­ways time for more.

“I love it. It’s a good thing to do as well.”

While Mr West has quite a busy sched­ule, he said he would al­ways find time for a spe­cial lady.

“There’s al­ways night-time, and af­ter hours,” he laughed.

“The per­son that is go­ing to

‘‘ I’D LOVE A FEW BEERS MAYBE UP THE BEACH ON A 4WD TRIP OR SOME­THING LIKE THAT, NICE AND RE­LAXED. BREN­DAN WEST

be with me will be wo­ken up quite a bit ob­vi­ously when I’m on call for WIN and if I have to go to call-outs for fires.

“But, yes, there’s al­ways time for that spe­cial some­one.”

Mr West is look­ing for some­one out­go­ing, but re­laxed, who loves a beer and the out­doors.

“I’d love a few beers maybe up the beach on a 4WD trip or some­thing like that, nice and re­laxed,” he said.

Bronte Moyle is the Coast’s lead­ing bach­e­lorette so far, and she couldn’t be hap­pier.

The 20-year-old hair­dresser and makeup artist is look­ing to find some­one who can be the life of the party and is ready to take the next step into adult­hood.

“My ideal date would be with some­one who can have a laugh and a joke. I don’t mind where we go, it’s more about the con­ver­sa­tion,” she said.

Vot­ing closes next Wed­nes­day at mid­night, and we will an­nounce the win­ners on Thurs­day be­fore set­ting the win­ning bach­e­lor and bach­e­lorette up on their first date.
