Kennedy Chelan, an American expat living in Queensland, listed the different types of Australian men she often sees on dating apps
“That orange just makes me sick right now because I’ve seen too much of it and for some reason being chippy or flashy is your whole personality,” Kennedy said, pointing to a high-vis shirt video posted on TikTok.
Second on Kennedy’s list was a “Melbourne guy” who, she said, usually includes a photo of them “mysteriously” drinking a cocktail at a bar in their profiles, “you’re not cool enough to know that”.
“I’m convinced they put out a public notice saying a person from Melbourne should have a photo at the races,” she joked.
She said she was fed up with the color orange after seeing so many people wearing high-vis shirts on dating apps, and chided them for making their work “their whole personality.”
“The second requirement is to mention almond croissants somewhere in your profile, bonus points if you’re debating where the best almond croissant is in Melbourne.”
Kennedy’s “favorite” type of Australian is the “mustachioed tattooed guy”.
“There are a billion of you, but only a few of you are doing it right. You probably listen to really cool music and have better shoes than I do,” she said.
She brought up the “surfer dudes” saying they were cool, had long hair, tanned skin and were usually a bit skinny.
“There are many of you. You take really aesthetic shots, maybe there’s a close-up shot of you surfing, and then there’s a film shot,” she said.
Another type Kennedy says she sees on dating apps is the Gold Coast guy whose “life is the gym”.
“He’s really wild on the weekends, probably into some kind of illegal substance, and yes, their names still sound like Brad,” she said.
“Such a profile probably says that you need to look for a girl with a nice booty or to hang out with the guys on Saturday for a glass of beer.”

Kennedy finally mentioned the infamous gods by showing a picture of a man on a boat wearing flip-flops with a fish.
“I like the word bogan — I don’t like to say that it seems offensive, but they say it anyway,” she said.
“I’ve seen it, I don’t want to see it again.”
Viewers raved about Kennedy’s hilarious and “accurate” observations and suggested she travel the country to meet more “types” of Australians.
“There are several options that you can come across. The Cashed Up Bogan is usually in Washington and the Hipster is from Sydney’s Easter suburbs,” said one person.
“Oh man, I look like all these guys rolled into one. Surfer, tradist, gym person, car enthusiast, replied another.
“You forgot about the millions of guys who wear flat-brimmed surf caps, Oakleys, Billabong T-shirts and shorts with sandals,” the woman pointed out.
