The scientist is already a hit, confessing, "You can't have a commitment with a PhD."
"I'm looking for a partner, my best mate."
He also confirmed, "Yes I'm going to pick someone in the end."
FIRST GIRL: Helena, 25, WA
The Western Australian-based blonde beauty had Matt flustered!
The pair took a breath, as Matt tried to control his nerves.
"I'm infatuated by your accent," he gushed.
Flirting, she showed off her French.
Chelsie, 28, Vic
We're feeling good about Chelsie.
The fellow scientist has definitely caught Matt's eye... And already has managed to get him out of his clothes.
Abbie, 23, QLD
The Gemini girl is here! We're guessing Abbie will be here for a long time.
Kristen, 24, QLD
The blonde beauty just relocated from China.
She made a very awkward joke: "Matt, I see you've been checking out my box!"
Brianna, 24, WA
She boldly presented him with a lego rose...
In a concerning sign, the show buzzes past a series of "contenders".
Vakoo, 23, NSW
Giving him all his angles, the model put her best foot forward.
She awkwardly asked him to do his best Zoolander.
"Bam I'm pregnant!" Vakoo wins the line of the night.
She then topped it: "Once you go black you don't go back."
Emma, 32, NSW
Emma organised her wedding with Matt... We're not joking.
"Emma really knows what she wants."
Watch the incredible (and awkward) first meetings in the video below!
Elly, NSW, 24
Winners music is being played and we are seeing final rose material!
The blonde beauty set up a fire for the Bachie, where they roasted marshmallows.
The pair were so lost in each other, they both nearly forget there were other girls in the mix.
"That was very sweet... What a sweetheart!"
So, where do we begin?
Rachael came dressed as bride. She brought her best friend, who Matt hits on.
The show has taken a turn.
Just watch it all unfold...
Now that we've met the girls - it's time to meet the drama.
Helena is mad.
Elly, 24, got the first rose and the coveted golden ticket.
Matt gushed: "Elly, when you stepped out of that limo tonight, you took my breath away. You give me butterflies but at the same time you make me feel very, very relaxed. It feels like we've known each other for a long time. I'm really enjoying getting to know you and I want that to continue because I think there could be something really special here. So, Elly, it'd be my pleasure if you would, uh, accept this golden ticket, um, to come back and see some wildlife in Melbourne."
He then added: "
WHO WENT HOME
Not getting a rose: Time to say goodbye to Keely and Sophie.
