So yeah… I met ‘that guy from the Bachelor NZ‘ at a conference we were both speaking at. I hadn’t watched the show but I did know that all of New Zealand was talking about it. I didn’t really know anything about Art Green other than the general consensus of the nation was that he was hot, and a ‘nice guy’. Turns out they’re right on both counts… (I’m not ashamed to admit he’s a good looking man.) As most of you know, I don’t do small talk, and both Art and his lovely partner Matilda were wonderful people to chat to about things that actually matter. Yay for good
