The Bachelor Australia Ties with AFL Finals for Overnight TV Ratings

There’s a new bachelor in town for season 7, which is shaping up to be a good one for 32-year-old Astrophysicist from Melbourne, Matt Agnew and his quest for love. With the ratings hitting 633,000, the hit reality show easily beat out the competition including Gogglebox Australia, which happens to be on the same network as The Bachelor. The ratings did take a dip from last Thursday’s 709,000 viewership in a 5-city aggregate figure, but it’s still enough for the show to earn a top spot — not to mention, tie with Seven’s coverage fo the AFL Elimination Finals match between West Coast and Essendon.

That said, things are only beginning in The Bachelor Australia and when things get even more heated up, we’re bound to see these ratings skyrocket even more. Make sure not to miss who eventually wins Matt’s heart (spoiler alert: yes, there’s someone!) with continuing new episodes of The Bachelor on Network Ten.
