The former TV news anchor has been unveiled as Channel Ten’s next Bachelorette by New Idea magazine.
The 27-year-old resigned from her newsreading job on WIN News in Hobart to front the reality series which will see 18 prospective males vie for her attention.
“Being on television for work and on television for this (Bachelorette) just wouldn’t have worked for either party so I’ve actually left my job,” Georgia confirms to The Daily Telegraph.
“I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I’ve realised I want to prioritise myself more than my career and the thing that is missing is love and that is my number one focus now.”
Before becoming a journalist, the Melbourne-born Bachelorette worked in the arts as a trapeze artist in Malaysia, was a passionate dancer and dance teacher and remains an avid theatre lover.
She says she was approached by producers for the gig but is serious about finding someone to settle down with.
She has a cat named Pawdrey Hepburn that has its own Instagram page.
Although Georgia isn’t saying much else while filming continues in Sydney, a close friend tells New Idea that she was perfect for the role.
“Georgia’s been unlucky in love, but she’s a hopeless romantic. The main issue she has had is moving around so much for work interstate and internationally, so it has been really hard to maintain close relationships and open herself up to guys, because chances are she will be off again in a year or so.”
