Ten’s The Bachelor is copping some social media hate today after last night’s much-hyped rose ceremony fizzled out to long stares, confused bachelorettes and a “to be continued”.
Ten had hyped the episode – watched by 753,000 viewers last night – as Matty J baulking at his rose handing our responsibilities. However, when viewers were informed they had to tune in again tonight to see which poor lady misses out, fans took to social media calling it a “rip off”.
“What the f@ck was with that ending? Not a happy camper,” fumed one. While another added: “Seriously if the follow up episode tomorrow is nothing like how they’re hyping it up to be, I’m gonna be so annoyed.”
“The Bachelor really pissed me off tonight,” said another. While others reserved their anger for the show’s producers: “The Bachelor taking the piss, promo drama at the rose ceremony and then ‘to be continued’? Talk about mugging off the audience.”
