Bachelor Australia Ritchie

Richie is the new Aussie Bachelor!

Eek! Is everyone as excited as I am that Richie is our new Aussie Bachelor? This year’s series hadn’t even crossed my mind (probably because the US one hasn’t finished yet) until I saw Richie’s photo on Facebook this morning. I was actually a bit surprised by how happy this news made me. As long as […]


The finale we didn’t see coming

Wow. Team Bachelor really outdid themselves this year. And not in a way that made you feel sort of happy but sort of dirty like in the recent US Bachelorette when she picked the guy she loved, but had already slept with the runner up. This was an actual happy ending with almost no icky […]


The Final Two we were forced to see coming

A little note to Channel Ten: one of the absolute worst things you can do on the second last night of the series is to broadcast an ad that gives away who goes home before we’ve even watched it! I don’t normally pay much attention to commercials, but I happened to look up at the exact […]


Hardcore Hometowns

Oh. My. God. Although I am obviously invested enough in this show to write a 2000 word blog about it each week, it isn’t often that I actually “feel” something for these people. But I did tonight. Did anyone see that coming? For those who missed the show, you’re going to have to wait until […]


Finally Down to the Final Five

As Heather said tonight, we’re finally out of the ‘six people woods’ and down to the final five. This is only of note because last time the group was whittled down to six, another two women showed up. (BTW, did anyone notice that Girl Sam only gets to choose from 14 men? If they really […]


Ab Sculpting

(Is it just me, or is the above photo a bit disconcerting?) We begin the episode watching a barefoot Sam climb into a kayak out the front of “his” Bach Pad, and head off for a little head-clearing paddle. At this point, all that musing just sounds like ‘blah blah love blah blah journey’ to […]


Face-off between the originals and the intruders

Another girl is gone and another morning rolls around where the remaining women lament the loss of their fellow Bachelorette. It’s interesting to hear what they miss the most about their beloved ex-roomie. In Ebru’s case, it’s the fact that she would always be the first one up, wearing her gym gear and eating a […]


Sweetness and Dark(ness)

It’s a new day and there’s a new villain. It looks as though Emily passed on the baton to Ebru when she ran out to check on her after the rose ceremony. It reminded me of that movie Fallen. I swear I wouldn’t be surprised if she started creepily whistling a Rolling Stones song. ‘I […]


Look out! It’s the intruders!

Wow. Tonight was quite a rollercoaster ride, huh? There were deluded monologues, continued rivalries, a couple of new arrivals, and a rose ceremony storm-out. And it went for quite a bit longer than usual, so let’s get started! There are seven chickies left and they are all talking about how a group date could easily […]


La Dolce Vita and the Death Star

Sam continues the ‘country’ theme by hanging out on someone’s rural property for a bit of introductory footage. He’s looking mysteriously off into the distance with those piercing eyes of his… gazing at the nearby horses… and spouting farm related metaphors about his journey being a fascinating ride so far. The girls are all back […]
