Swimwear designer looking for love on The Bachelor

NONI Janur is the Toowoomba swimwear designer looking for love on this year's season of The Bachelor.

The 25-year-old is one of 22 women vying for the Richie Strahan's heart.

Ms Janur completed her schooling at Harristown State High School and then moved to Bali to launch her swimwear brand Balini.

While her business is flourishing, Ms Janur said her love life was not so successful.

"I haven't had many boyfriends and because I travel around a lot it's not the greatest thing when trying to keep a relationship," she said.

"I had one boyfriend for quite a while but it fizzled out and I was single for two years when I decided to apply for The Bachelor.

"The experience is something you're never going to get again and I thought it was a chance to put myself out there and start dating again."

Ms Janur appears on tonight's premiere of the show, where viewers will see her meet Mr Strahan for the first time.

"I didn't know who the bachelor was going to be so it was quite overwhelming walking out of the limo. Everyone was super nervous," she said.

"I had a bunch of bacon roses for him and I kept worrying I was going to drop them or fall over.

"It was comforting to see Richie was the bachelor because I knew of him. I'm attracted to light featured men as well so I was happy to find out it was him."

Mr Strahan was a contestant on season one of The Bachelorette Australia and was unlucky in love, finishing third.

The second time round he hopes to find the woman of his dreams.

The Bachelor premiers on Channel 10 tonight at 7.30.
