No Bachelor in Paradise

Ten has canned Bachelor in Paradise, citing low ratings for the last season.

Of course Covid would make it tricky to film and the show’s unparalleled ability to attract toxic bros are two more reasons to give the format a rest.

The casts from this year’s Bachelor and Bachelorette must be devastated not to enjoy a budget holiday.

Meanwhile, I’m a Celeb is back Jan 3 but will be filmed in Australia.
Dancing with the Stars is canned (the Denyer curse strikes again) but there are plans to film Aus Survivor in 2021.


Bachelorette Wk 2

Here we are in week 2 of Sisterelette. Take a drink every time it is mentioned the girls are from the country and you’ll be sloshed by the first ad break.

Early days yet but I reckon Elly picks Fraser and Becky Pete.

It’s obvious some of the blokes who have gotten air time thus far are just there looking to boost their profiles.

It’s interesting not much is said about the sisters as human beings. Is Elly still a nurse? And Becky? She drinks piccolo with almond milk and doesn’t mind an early pash – that’s all we know.

I quite like this guy – and he has a “real” job.


Bachelor Locky finale

The end of Lockydown is nigh! Tonight it’s digital marketer/influencer Bella versus Victorian nurse Irena.

As we know from the Honey Badger season, having a final two does not mean Bachie will walk away with a girlfriend.

There are rumours he picks Bella but she can’t handle the pressure, so he flips back to Irina. Who knows!

Flights to Bali are back? Woo hoo!

The Bachelor screens on Ten from 7.30pm and runs for 90 minutes.


Bachelor Locky

Bubbly dancer Nicole is gone and we are back in the mansion for one of those awkward episodes that starts with a rose ceremony, just to make us think we got our time’s wrong and came in halfway through.

Will lovely Steph and the other one (Maddie?) ever get a single date?

Probably not – they have become the spares. Tonight Bella whinges about her Irina’s perceived wrongdoing and it blow up in her face.

I don’t know them from a bar of soap but since reality TV is all about judging people, I’m Team Irina.


Bachelor Lockydown nearly over

Well, that didn’t last long. We get one more night of Bachelor Lockydown and then it’s back to the mansion for more angst.

Tonight intruder Bec enters the scene. Bet she’ll quickly be in Locky’s bubble.

Intruder Bec is 25 so is obviously worried she has missed her chance to find a partner with whome to set up an Insta bikini fitness empire.

Tonight (Wed): As Love In Lockdown draws to a close, the girls are invited on a virtual group date where they will have the opportunity to introduce their nearest and dearest to Locky.

Thurs: It’s the first group date since everyone returned to the mansion and the ladies finally get to do what they couldn’t during lockdown: get physical with Locky. Locky is blindfolded and stripped down to his underwear.

The Bachelor airs on Ten at 7.30pm.


Bachelor Locky week 2

It’s week 2 of Bachie, which is the closest we are going to get to Survivor for a long time.

And word has it the eyebrows girl who was telling the others Locky was a D grade celeb did not watch Survivor either – the producers told her and then asked her to spread the word because the lack of fangirling was embarrassing.

How many girls will Locky pash before the Rona breaks up the party?


Bachelor Locky

The new season of The Bachelor starts on Wednesday on Ten with what is the ultimate Survivor crossover.
Two-time player Locky Gilbert is the new Bachie. Think tall, dark, tatts, athletic, more articulate than Honey Badger but not a Matt/Matty J-type vocab.

At least his Survivor experience would have made him used to talking to the camera.
He’s a wild wilderness guide from WA who is based in Bali, so his ideal match is a bikini influencer.

Apparently the pandemic meant some dates were conducted via video, so perhaps there will be less snogging this time round.

AK as Osher, Lockie as the Bach.

Now, if only we could convince Osher to take the night off and let AK conduct the rose ceremony …


Bachelor in Paradise has a new timeslot

Bachiedise is now on three nights a week, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Keira returns tonight but will probably be booted quick smart. She’s only there to stir the pot. Perhaps Jamie will see her as a new soulmate?

Remember what Keira used to look
like? Back when she was on Richie’s Bachie season.
