Attitude’s Bachelor of the Day: Amini Fonua

By Ross Semple

Attitude’s Bachelors of Year 2017 is brought to you in association with Blued.Amini FonuaBachelor of the Year position: #2

Some people claim to watch the Olympics for the sport. They are liars. The more honest among us will tell you we actually watch it for the man crumpet, with Amini Fonua being one such hot, buttery piece of bread. A swimmer from the Friendly Islands of Tonga, he caught our eye during the 2016 Rio games. After an emergency Google, we hungrily lapped up his Twitter feed; a selection of hot topless selfies and LGBT+ advocacy. Who needs a medal when you could win a prize like Amini?

What is Amini’s biggest turn-off? Find out below …

How long have you been a bachelor?

I’ve been a Bachelor for a year and a half now.

Do you have an *ahem* ‘three date rule’?

If he’s a potential boyfriend, I’ll take my time. Courtship is fading but it’s one of my favorite parts of a relationship and I think it’s still important.

Frank Ocean.

I can cook and am a solid barista.
