He’s widely believed to be dating one of Australia’s most talked-about women.
And in a flashback photo shared with fans this week, he looks a lot different.
With blond hair and a cheeky smile — can you guess who this Sydney-based heir is?
Can you guess who it is? He’s said to have won the heart of one of Australia’s most talked-about women
Pictured is Stu Laundy, 44, the heir to a $500 million pub fortune who is widely believed to be Sophie Monk’s winning suitor on The Bachelorette.
The image was shared on Stu’s new, secondary Instagram account recently.
The ‘publican playboy’ already had one private account but set up a new one last week, sparking speculation that he may finally be making his debut as an ‘intruder’ on The Bachelorette.

Speaking to the Sun Herald, an insider claimed 37-year-old Sophie has chosen the millionaire as ‘the one’ and that they make a great couple.
‘If they do get together they will be really good,’ the insider revealed. ‘They’re both really good, funny people.’
The source also said the pairing makes sense given that Stu is an heir to a multi-million dollar pub fortune and Sophie ‘likes a drink.’

‘[The Laundys] are quite devout Catholics but pretty down to earth people. They made their money from some pretty rough pubs so nothing would shock them and she does like a drink,’ the source explained.
The 44-year-old divorced from wife Rachel in 2013 and was been spotted filming a group date for the Network Ten show in Sydney’s northern suburbs in July.
Surprisingly, Stu has previously revealed that he had met Sophie last year and had set up a date on his impressive yacht, but it never eventuated.

Stu has previously been linked to a string of high-profile women including Laura Csortan, Sophie Falkiner and Stephanie Rice.
Although he is yet to appear on The Bachelorette, show stars Jourdan Siyal, James Trethwie and Ryan Jones are among the 80 people he is currently following on his new Instagram account – which suggests it will be the public page he uses to promote the series.
Meanwhile, Stu is also following an unofficial fan page for 2017 Bachelor star Tara Pavlovic.
One follower seems to have got the hint, commenting below a recent photo Stu posted: ‘How long til u show up on Bachelorette?’
