Bryce Moore is one of the bachelors up for auction at the Outback to Oyster Cocktail Party.

TICKET holders at this year’s Outback to Oyster Cocktail Party at The Surf Club Mooloolaba are in for a treat.

Along with beer, wine and canapes, guests at the annual fundraiser will have the opportunity to go home with a new country man.

Six eligible men plus a surprise bachelor from outback Queensland will go under the hammer as part of the Catch Your Match 2017 auction. 

The winning bidders will buy themselves the rights to go on a date with their man. 

All money raised on the night will be donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

“Without giving too much away, we have lots of surprises in store for our guests this year including the ‘Catch your Match’ Bachelor Auction,” committee member Holly Ziesemer said.

“A fun way for young people to engage with the rural scene.”

The six bachelors were asked a series of questions to get to know them a little better.

Describe yourself in a few words

Can spin a yarn, Bovine whisperer, mango enthusiast and aspiring weather man.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

There’s nothing like the Chinchilla Watermelon Festival to spark the beginning of a new romance. We’ve got pip spitting, melon skiing, tug-o-war, and a beach party where you may even get to meet Dingo.

Special talents?

Can devour 3.5 Bunnings snags from the car park to the front door whilst deciding what decor I’m putting on the deck of my euphoric Queenslander, situated 498m from the Club Hotel.

What are you looking for in a woman?

Keen bidder, deep pockets, farmer’s daughter (preferably an only child)

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I have a burning desire to run for the Mayor of Chinchilla in the 2018 election. “Let’s make Chinchilla great again”.

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

I’m worth more than most people’s HECS debt.

Describe yourself in a few words

The next Sidney Kidman

Tell us about your dating history?

Due to the fact that I have been nominated for catch your match 2017 I’d say that is has been largely unsuccessful.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

My hometown date would kick off with a lick run out through the Mulga country I was meant to do the previous day, followed by a long dusty trip into the local Bollon Hotel, where we would both enjoy a couple of XXX Gold pots (no schooners available) alongside one of the best Fisherman’s Baskets the west has to offer. My lucky date would also have the privilege of meeting outback celebrity and fellow bachelor Dingo Don, the greatest dog trapper to ever roam the land.

Special talents?

The list is endless, but I have been known to cook two minute noodles in one minute 45.

What are you looking for in a woman?

My ideal woman would very closely resemble Jennifer Aniston. It would also tick a few boxes if she was to inherit a large amount of country with no siblings to share it with.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Probably standing in front of the 2022 outback to oyster crowd being auctioned off again.

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

They say you have to pay for quality.

Dennis Rush

Age: 22

Occupation: Grazier

Describe yourself in a few words

The ultimate catch. Depending on who you’re after.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

Would be for a lovely lady to take me out to dinner, she books the restaurant, she asks all the questions, she buys the steak, she buys the champagne and at the end of the night when things are getting serious, I knock her back.

Special talents?

Could ring a rabbit’s neck before I went to primary school.

What are you looking for in a woman?

One that I can laugh with.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

What you see is not always what you get.

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

Like all markets...it relies on quality, supply and demand and if Friday night reflects this i think it will suggest that all areas of the beef industry are on the front foot.

Describe yourself in a few words

Incredibly passionate, hardworking and dedicated to building an empire for myself and my lucky future lady.

Tell us about your dating history

As successful as James Packer and Mariah Carey’s engagement.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

Well firstly you’d make sure she could last the drive to Dirranbandi by herself for a start. If she makes it out she’s in for a real treat. I’d reserve a table at the Hebel General Store on a glorious Friday night for a candlelit dinner celebrating over a few bottles of red. We’d then poke over the road to the local Hebel Pub to have a crack at the joker jackpot draw, introducing her to the locals and fam. For the highlight of the night, I’d then test her driving skills dodging roos on the way home.

Special talents?

All I’ll say is it’s an experience you won’t walk away exactly easy from.

What are you looking for in a woman?

The things that attract me to a woman are intelligence, courage, self-confidence, knowledge, skill, openness, honesty, integrity, a sceptical and questioning mindset and ambition.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Hopefully by then Frank has me and my misso set up on a nice piece of land. It’ll need to be close to home so Daddy’s farmhands can drop by whenever there’s a bit of work to be done around the place.

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

Surely I’ll go double of whatever Dennis Rush goes for.

Describe yourself in a few words

Toeier than a Roman sandal.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

Spend an afternoon bathing in the Goondiwindi town pool, then we can meet some of the boys down at the Macintyre River where we can enjoy a homemade rope swing.

Special talents?

Can and will pull a Murray Cod out of a snag.  

What are you looking for in a woman?

Child-bearing hips and a good attitude.

Is there anything the ladies should know about you?

My cousin plays for the cowboys

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

I’ll be satisfied with anything.

Occupation: Student

Describe yourself in a few words

I’m probably the purest example of a queen street cowboy you’ll ever find.

What is your ultimate date?

Game of barefoot bowls at the West Toowong Bowls Club followed by a romantic dinner at the Paddo and then a ride on the Johnny Ringo’s bucking bull to see what you’re made of.

What would your hometown date be like? Where would you go and who would be introduced to the lucky girl?

A personalised farm tour of the family property, followed by an afternoon of fishing on the banks of the Dumaresq river, then poke into the Stockman Hotel for what’s been rumoured to be Australia’s best parmy. From there I would introduce her to smoker’s area regulars, Mick and Terry.

Special talents?

Jordan Lowe and I will only reveal our special talents to the highest bidder and for the right price of course. However, we are willing to give a select few a sneak peek directly after the auction at our main watering hole...the Pole.  

What are you looking for in a woman?

She would preferably have some nice hectares, however not essential. As well as a love for beer and the occasional lung lolly. Also, someone who won’t give me too much lip about my dad bod.

Is there anything the ladies should know about you?

Hectare hunters will be shown the door unless you have hectares of your own.

How much do you think you’ll go for at auction?

Anything over $10 would be both shocking and amazing.

The event is supported by Wideland Ag & Construction.
