2020 Bachelor, Adventure Guide and Australian Survivor Contestant – Perth
Locklan ‘Locky’ Gilbert was born and raised in Perth, WA. Locky is now known and adored across Australia for his appearance as the 2020 Bachelor and Survivor All-Star.
Before hitting Aussie screens, Locky was the owner and head guide for his adventuring company, Four Elements Adventure, which is based in Bali. Locky prides himself on being an adventure enthusiast and adrenaline junkie, spending his spare time cave diving, base jumping, canyoneering, hiking and biking, and sky diving. Travel has always been one of Locky’s biggest passions, which is seen through his many expeditions to destinations all over the world.
Locky first appeared on our televisions in 2017 as a contestant on Australian Survivor Season 2. He fought his way to an admirable fifth place, taking home the nickname ‘The Challenge Beast’ for his physical strength and sheer determination. An adored and memorable contestant, Australia quickly fell in love with Locky and he was cast for the 2020 Australian Survivor All-Stars series.
Not long after Survivor All-Stars concluded, Locky was announced as the Australian Bachelor for 2020. Known as a hopeless romantic, Locky had high hopes for finding the women of his dreams, who shared his love for adventure and nature, and it is fair to say he exceeded his expectations. He was won over by the beautiful, down-to-earth nurse Irena Srbinovska.
Since the Bachelor finale, the thrill-seeking duo have spent their days traveling around the country and documenting all their adventures on their Instagram pages and YouTube channel Outboundtrvl. Whether it be hiking to some of the highest points in the country, or scuba diving with whale sharks, Locky and Irena have done it all!
Locky has partnered with a multitude of high-profile sports, travel and adventuring brands, including Adventure Kings, LSKD, Trek Bicycle Australia and Nissan Australia. Locky is always looking for his next big project and is eager to collaborate with all like-minded businesses.
