Meet The Grooms - Series 10

Category: Press Pack Article

ADAM, 35

Business Owner

Cocky and confident, Adam is a modern-day entrepreneur who is always on the lookout for the next business opportunity and the next beautiful girl. Adam’s done with dating apps and wants to find something more meaningful with someone who is ready to settle down.

Born in England with Jamaican West Indian heritage, Adam was adopted by Australian parents who raised him in Queensland. In his twenties he was in a relationship for almost 10 years, and they became engaged before realising that he was too young to settle down.

Since calling London home for the past six years, Adam has flown halfway across the world with hopes of finding love with someone who is as mature, honest, and open as he is.



Cameron grew up on a farm in Queensland before moving to Darwin to work as a carpenter in Indigenous communities in the remote Northern Territory.

Following a dramatic heartbreak by a girl he had fallen for, Cam took off for a job “out bush”, far away from civilisation to mend his broken heart, and that routine is now part of his identity. He spends months at a time, sometimes as far as 600km from a grocery store – which is not helping his search for love.

Down-to-earth, cheeky and laidback, Cam has never had a girlfriend. Although he’s nervous to jump in the deep end with a stranger, he has full faith that the experts will find him someone who is loving to him and excepting of his transient lifestyle.

DAN, 42

Digital Marketing Business Owner

Career-driven, charming and successful, semi-retired businessman Dan lives an active outdoor lifestyle on the beach at his beloved Gold Coast.

At 42, Dan has been married twice and is the father of a 16-year-old girl who is his world. Now Dan is looking for someone who cares about their fitness, is motivated, and who can match his lifestyle, dreams and ambitions.

Born into humble beginnings, Dan has worked hard to reach his level of success and enjoys a very comfortable lifestyle. The only thing missing from his perfect life is Mrs Right.


Cyber Security Sales

A chivalrous gentleman who has no trouble meeting women, Duncan finds himself falling quickly into a relationship, only to realise months later that they aren’t compatible.

In a relationship Duncan is “the best friend and the lover”, and he’s searching for a woman with class, emotional intelligence, and confidence. Physical attraction is also crucial for Duncan to spark a connection, so he’s hoping the experts get it right.

Duncan’s parents have been married for 44 years - the kind of relationship success he aspires to. Growing up in a close family unit in Sydney with two older sisters means Duncan has a deep appreciation for women, which has helped his past relationships.



With a bone-dry sense of humour, Harrison doesn’t take himself too seriously, although he’s serious about finding love.

The single dad of a three-year-old, Harrison is open to having more children with the right woman. But he won’t just settle for anyone - he sets the bar “ridiculously high” to achieve greatness in love. Harrison’s parents have been happily married for 33 years and are the blueprint he wants himself and his future partner to aspire to.

After around two years on the singles circuit, Harrison was dating with no intention of commitment. But now he’s eager to change his ways and settle down with a beautiful woman who shares his zest for life, goals, values and sense of humour.


Marriage Celebrant

Formerly in a heavy metal band, Jesse is a marriage celebrant in Perth who officiates in the style of a rock star. He has done over 500 weddings, and while he thrives in his job, witnessing the constant level of love and commitment leaves him wanting that for himself.

Honest and emotional, Jesse has had two serious relationships which grew from an instant connection, so his expectations to find that spark again are high.

Jesse is extremely fussy when it comes to choosing partners. Given that Jesse gets “the ick” quickly, he is seeking the chance to take the plunge in the experiment in the hope that love can flourish regardless.

JOSH, 40

Advertising Client Director

The self-proclaimed and self-deprecating “station wagon” of relationships, Josh is stable, dependable and solid as a partner. This loveable single father of two loves Disney – so much so that he named his kids after his favourite characters. Simply put, he’s looking for his plus-one.

Since his marriage ended, Josh has attempted to navigate a whole new dating game that has evolved dramatically since he was last single. He struggles in the modern world of apps and is coming to terms with ghosting, among other unfortunate side effects.

He misses the small things about being in a relationship - like sharing his day with his partner and having a laugh. Although he says he’s a “yes man” who can become submissive in a relationship, his priority is to establish a solid emotional connection with his partner and find his voice.


CEO, Biotech

An entrepreneur since he was 19, Layton has built a string of successful businesses, including his latest project in medicinal cannabis for pets. 

While describing himself as motivated and driven, Layton is less committed to making love a priority. He struggles to compromise and tends to put work first. This sees him spending more time in the office than with a significant other, which takes its toll on his relationships.

At 35, Layton is the only single person in his close-knit group of friends, and wants to take action before it becomes his reality for life. Over the past few years Layton has taken a lot of time re-evaluating his real priorities in his life. He is looking for a woman who shares his work ethic, his sense of determination and drive, and ultimately someone to grow his empire with.


Voice-Over Artist

Confident, charismatic and mature beyond his years, voice-over artist Ollie literally has the gift of the gab.

Although his age could suggest dating apps are all he knows about finding a romantic connection, Ollie is no fan of modern dating. He’s had one serious relationship and knows what it’s like to fall in love – he just hopes that next time it’s with ‘The One’.

Raised by his mum and two sisters, Ollie is looking for a strong, independent and patient woman who can accept his sometimes lazy and stubborn nature. But don’t get Ollie wrong: he’s a romantic deep down, and he wants to love and be loved.

Goofy and earnest, Ollie is hard not to love. His candour and wit are often hard to come by, and he’s put full faith in the experts to find him a match as unique and vulnerable as he is.


Personal Trainer

At first, with his self-assuredness and jokey attitude, Shannon might appear like your average carefree bachelor – but deep down he’s another sensitive soul who wants to be loved.

With a three-year-old daughter he loves dearly, Shannon was in an on-again-off-again relationship with his ex-partner for many years until eventually ending things with his ex and vowing to move on with someone he can build a future with.

Shannon is sometimes hot-headed, and his no-nonsense, forthright attitude can often land him in trouble. But having spent the last year on self-development and reflection, he believes he is now the best version of himself, ready to settle down again with someone who accepts him just as he is.
