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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Now, if only we could convince Osher to take the night off and let AK conduct the rose ceremony …
Finally, Bachiedise is here! Now we can live vicariously through those frolicking in tropical paradise, back before watching people shaking hands was as horrifying as watching scantily clad young things grind on the beach.
The end is already here for Bachelor Matt.
Wednesday is long dates with each girl (that’s if whatserface doesn’t bolt) and Thursday is decision time.
The finale goes for 100 mins so tune in around 9pm if you just want to see the winner.
Is it time to give Bachie a rest? Does anyone really care? Aren’t people just watching to see when Abbie goes home?
Last year the Badgerlor ended in in early Oct and Bachelorette Ali started the following week. I am interested to see what it will be like with Angie from Gogglebox but I don’t think I’ll be back watching Bachie on a regular basis.
Wed: In the group date, the girls test their chemistry with Matt in front of each other. One lucky girl gets to ‘move in’ with Matt. Later, two girls go head-to-head in an epic cocktail party showdown.
Thurs: It’s “home towns”, and Matt travels around Australia to meet the nearest and dearest of the final four girls competing for his heart.
