This year’s Bachelorette is done and won. Ange has chosen Carlin and the lovebirds can look forward to the woman’s glossies covering their every move for the next six months before possibly having short-lived radio and/or soapie careers.
According to OzTAM metro numbers, some 1.006 million viewers tuned in to see Ange choose her man, leaving runner-up, Timm, looking slightly pissed off. Some 848,00 viewers watched the episode proper.
Commenting on the numbers, Network 10’s chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: “We couldn’t be more pleased for Angie and Carlin, and wish them every happiness for the future.
“Once again this year, The Bachelorette Australia proved its popularity with viewers across all platforms. It is one of the most engaging and noisiest shows on television and across other platforms and viewers clearly loved Angie and the bachelors.
“The success of this year’s season is a testament to the passion and hard work of many people on and off screen. I’d like to thank Angie for sharing her fairy tale journey with us, and the contestants for opening up their hearts to finding love. I also want to thank our production partners Warner Bros. International for their brilliant work in bringing this season to life and everyone at 10 for their tireless efforts,” she said.
Network 10’s chief sales officer Rod Prosser added: “A big thank you to our commercial partners for their support across the season.
“The Bachelorette Australia continues to deliver fantastic results for advertisers and it was great to work with you all to bring your brand story to life through cross-platform integration and innovative activations.”
