New Caledonia stars in Bachelor finale

Contestants sink, but New Cal swims

Nick Cummins may have shocked Australian viewers with his decision to dump the final two contestants on The Bachelor Australia, but the venue of the finale, New Caledonia left a winner. 



While the Honey Badger, as he is (strangely) known, left two hearts broken, the South Pacific nation still shone, New Caledonia Tourism Australia Director Caroline Brunel said. 


According to Ms Brunel, the finale showed the French territory was the ultimate setting for a romantic escape.   


“No matter the outcome of the final rose ceremony, I have no doubt that after seeing the luxurious Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Spa & Golf Resort, the views over the UNESCO World Heritage-listed lagoon and barrier reef, the magnificent sunsets and picturesque beaches – that Australians will fall in love with New Caledonia,” she remarked.


“We’re incredibly grateful to our partners Air Calin, Marriott International and all of the local suppliers in New Caledonia that worked with us to show off this little slice of paradise to Australians.”

To mark the event, New Caledonia Tourism and Aircalin also hosted an exclusive viewing of The Bachelor finale for 60 agents at The Ivy Den in Sydney.
