He’s the former Biggest Loser star who is now a ripped firefighter.
And so it comes as no surprise that the hosts of Studio 10 questioned whether hunky singleton Sam Rouen was going to become the next Bachelor.
But upon being asked, the 30-year-old made a self-deprecating comment, claiming that the Bachelorette’s would ‘walk out on the first day’.

‘No, that would be the shortest season ever,’ Sam began, denying that he’s the next Bachelor.
‘When everyone just walks off and just beelines straight out the first day, so,’ he added amid giggles.
Moments earlier, Sam was asked whether he is currently single. He responded, saying: ‘Yeah, currently.’

‘I was seeing someone recently and it was pretty special, but that kind of ended,’ he bashfully added.
Daily Mail Australia understands that Sam and his ex fiancée Daniella Schot called off their wedding after splitting in 2017.

Back on the market: Meanwhile, Sam – who has managed to keep the weight off over the past decade since winning The Biggest Loser in 2008 – is still looking for love after calling off his wedding to Daniella Schot
Hot fireman! Last year, the Sydney-based fireman was spotted on dating app Bumble, flaunting his slimmed-down frame to attract potential dates. Daily Mail Australia understands that Sam and Daniella split in 2017, well before he created his dating profile
Sam’s profile photos on Bumble did not show any sign of him being previously engaged.
His bio simply read: ‘I indicate out of roundabouts. That pretty much sums me up.’
Meanwhile, Sam reflected on his weight loss journey on Instagram last week – almost 11 years after he won The Biggest Loser in 2008, shedding a total of 72kg.
‘Eleven years ago today, I stood on a stage and realised that I committed to something. It was one of the first times in my life that I put my mind to something, gave it my all and achieved what I wanted,’ Sam wrote in the caption of the post.

Reflecting on the 11-year anniversary, Sam said: ‘In the weeks leading up to 29/04/08, I was running up to 60km a day and eating to a timetabled scheduled. I was disciplined.
‘I proved to myself that I could do what I put my mind to. I still face demons and challenges, but this day empowered me realising my worth and self empowerment.
‘I hope that everyone has that opportunity to reflect on themselves, and realise how amazing they are, what they can achieve, and what they are worth.’
