CLEO Editor-in-Chief Lucy Cousins announced the Top 30 finalists for CLEO Bachelor XXL, 2015.

With this iconic competition now in its 29th year, the task of choosing the Top 30 never gets easier as the CLEO team scour cities, trawl through tradies, spot sports stars, keep out an eye for those flying high in business or just knocking around to find the boy next door!

“The search this year was definitely an XXL undertaking as we searched high and low to serve up the best blokes on offer. Now it’s up to Australia to have their say and vote. I look forward to unveiling our winner for 2015 in November,” said CLEO Editor-in-chief, Lucy Cousins.

The bachelor who receives the most votes and wins over more hearts will be awarded the coveted CLEO Bachelor crown along with $5000 cash and an amazing trip to Vietnam for two thanks to Topdeck.

The CLEO Most Eligible Bachelor of 2015 will be announced at an XXL event in Sydney on November 25.
