Meet Harry, a 21-year-old model and business student who grew up in Australia but is now based in Auckland.

Harry describes himself as “heartbreak Harry” and says he is the “king of one-liners.”

Harry, 21.

Harry in his own words

I nicknamed myself Heartbreak Harry because I’m the king of one-liners and I have a terrible track record with girls. Really, I’m just the handsome, lanky 6’5″ [1.95m] guy who came on the show for love. I’d like to meet someone with the same zest for life as me, with an awesome personality and humour because I make light of every situation. I grew up across the ditch and now I’m looking for a special Kiwi girl to have fun with.

Are you looking for love coming into the show?

I’m hunting it! I have a terrible dating record and I’m hopeless at picking girls, so the show could be my best chance at finding that special someone.

Describe yourself in three words…

Hilarious, fun and handsome.

What is the most surprising thing about you?

How tall I am. I’m 6’5. When people meet me they fizz out about how much of a lanky string bean I am.

Describe your ideal date…

I haven’t been on too many dates to tell you. A hot air balloon or sky diving would be absolutely elite, made even better to be with someone who is adventurous and a good laugh.

Describe your ideal partner and what qualities they’d have…

I don’t really know what my ideal partner is! All my exes have been a bit crazy so I wouldn’t know what I want. Just someone who has an awesome personality and is a lovely person deep down.

Relationship deal-breakers?

Someone who is self-centered or someone who lies. Smoking is also a deal-breaker for me.


A girl who has an awesome personality. They’ve got to be able to take a joke!


A massive turn-off off to me is someone who is boring or who gets upset over the littlest thing.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.
