Why Jad Nehmetallah won’t be moving from Gogglebox to The Bachelor Australia anytime soon

Gogglebox star Jad Nehmetallah finally addresses rumours he is set to be the next Bachelor

He’s rumoured to be the next face of Network Ten’s The Bachelor Australia.

But Jad Nehmetallah has rejected the hearsay, despite being single and ready to settle down.

The Gogglebox star, 36, told TV Tonight the dating series was not the type of show he could see himself on as he enjoyed his privacy.

‘Gogglebox isn’t the kind of show you get papped for. It’s not The Bachelor, MAFS or Love Island. You do get recognised a lot, but you’re a neutral character. You’re not hated, there’s no gossip on you,’ he said.

‘The Bachelor is a great show, but it’s not something that I feel is for me at the moment.’ 

Jad has been regularly picked on for being single as ‘it’s an easy conversation to flog’ and he desperately wants to have children.

‘I want to start a family, which is always on my mind. I love kids and I’ve got a couple of nephews. So I think when the time’s right, God willing,’ he told the publication.

'Gogglebox isn't the kind of show you get papped for. It's not The Bachelor, MAFS or Love Island. You do get recognised a lot, but you're a neutral character. You're not hated, there's no gossip on you,' Jad told TV Tonight on Monday

The buff TV star recently revealed he was ‘over dating for the sake of it’ , and was finding it ‘hard to find someone [he] can see a really good future with’.

‘I don’t want a couple of dates and then it’s over. I just think I’m at the stage where I’ve got my hands full with my new business, so unless a girl is really special, it’s going to take a lot for me to really commit. But you never know what’s around the corner, right?’ he told Foxtel magazine on March 24.

But not all hope is lost for Jad, who added he was open to a relationship ‘if a girl gets [his] attention and [they] get on’.

‘I’m ready for that, but it’s hard to find someone I can see a really good future with,’ he said. 

‘I am just over dating for the sake of it and it has to be more meaningful than just a little bit of fun. I want a quality relationship with depth to it.’
