Angry viewers flock to social media to slam ‘mediocre’ premiere of The Bachelors: ‘You could find more attractive men on the street at 4am’

Date:

The new season of Channel 10’s dating series The Bachelors premiered on Sunday evening and many viewers were not impressed with what they saw.

The debut episode introduced eligible Bachelors Luke Bateman, Wesley Senna Cortes, and Ben Waddel to audiences.

While the trio are hoping to win the heart of one of the women vying for their attentions, the premiere episode did not win the hearts of audiences 

Angry viewers quickly took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to complain about what unfolded before their eyes.

‘I have never seen three more mediocre men in my whole life,’ wrote one disappointed viewer.

‘You could find more attractive men at 4am on King street and that’s saying something,’ added another.

Meanwhile, other users criticised the lack of charisma in the three young men starring on the show.

‘How in the Hillsong did Wesley – a guy who’s never had a girlfriend – end up as one of the Bachelors?’ an angry viewer vented.

‘Oh Ben… so rude. A roomful of women hoping to have a chat and you take the only one that’s currently occupied,’ a second person chipped in. 

Others suggested Channel Ten should revamp the show to make it engaging to audiences.

‘The last time I was actually interested in The Bachelor was like 2020. Geez, it’s been a while.’

Despite shocking ratings for its last season, which featured three bachelors instead of one, Channel 10 has decided to make another attempt to revive the flagging franchise.

‘Channel 10 is over the moon with the streaming numbers and the fresh direction the show has taken,’ a source told Daily Mail Australia. 

The dating show, known for its cringeworthy moments and rose ceremonies, has managed to survive thanks to its video on demand (VOD) audience, the insider said.

‘They’re incredibly excited to bring it back for another season, proving love conquers all – even low ratings! The Bachelor has been doing surprisingly well on demand, and that’s what really counts in 2023,’ they explained.

The Bachelors Australia continues Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Ten
