The Bachelor’s Matt Agnew looks unrecognisable during Today Extra appearance

The Bachelor doesn’t look like this anymore! Matt Agnew is unrecognisable as he ditches his ‘geeky’ look in favour of long shaggy hair and a ripped physique during Today Extra appearance

He soared to fame as the nerdy yet handsome astrophysicist on The Bachelor in 2019.

But after keeping a low profile in recent months, Matt Agnew returned to TV for an appearance on Today Extra on Thursday – where he looked remarkably different to how he did on the match-making show.

Viewers would be forgiven for not recognising the 32-year-old data scientist, who ditched his trademark ‘geeky’ spectacles and clean-cut look in favour of luscious long locks and just a hint of stubble.

Having clearly worked out over lockdown, Matt showed off his noticeably buff physique a crisp white shirt, which he unbuttoned twice to show a hint of chest.

Matt had appeared on Today to discuss NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter landing on Mars – but host David Campbell couldn’t help but ask about his new hairstyle towards the end of the chat.

‘Before you go, quickly, how long will you grow your hair?’ he cheekily asked.

‘I’m thinking I potentially go shoulder length,’ Matt laughed. ‘I’ve got past that really awkward uncomfortable stage, so I’ve got to just push.’

When asked if he was in a relationship, he swiftly responded with: ‘I am single.’

Matt chose chemical engineer Chelsie McLeod as his winner on The Bachelor, but their relationship didn’t last.

The couple confirmed their split two months after the finale airdate, and Chelsie later hinted it wasn’t her decision to end things.

Matt said at the time: ‘Our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, everyday world as we had hoped.’

He hasn’t publicly dated anyone since the break-up, but Chelsie recently debuted her model boyfriend Ricki Dehaan.
