TWO Robe men will feature on the WIN network’s new hit series When Love Comes to Town.
Charlie Bainger, 29, and Bill Young, 33, will appear in episode four of the television show, due to screen tonight.
The series features 12 young women who have boarded a bus and are travelling around country Australia to find love.
At each stop, the women meet with the town’s two most eligible men.
If they like what they see, they can elect to stay in the town to pursue a relationship, but otherwise it is back on the bus.
While in Robe, the girls get a taste of what it is like to be part of an “outdoorsy” community with lots of adventure, including surfing, four-wheel driving and fishing.
Born and raised on the family cattle farm just outside Robe, Mr Bainger now manages the family business of seven cattle properties.
He also runs a surf school from outside his beach house.
Described as charismatic and great fun, Mr Bainger said he enjoyed being in love and romancing girls, but he had his heart broken when his last girlfriend moved to Brisbane about six months ago.
Meanwhile, Mr Young is a crayfisherman having taken over from his father as skipper of the family fishing boat and spends most days from October through to March out at sea.
Mr Young said he was ready to meet the right girl, but he has been unlucky in love, which he believes is because he goes for the wrong type of girl – “the trophy girlfriend who leaves every time”.
When Love Comes to Town will visit 10 of country Australia’s most breathtaking destinations, including the tropical paradise of Airlie Beach – the gateway to the Whitsundays.
