TEN is set to add After the Rose specials for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in 2016, according to reports.
Smart move. Instead of giving first interviews to The Project, Studio 10 and radio, it’s worth getting a post-show reunion for a fervent audience.
Real Housewives of Melbourne has cleverly done this, as have US reality shows.
Imagine if we’d been given one last year after Blake Garvey’s proposal. Ratings would have gone through the roof.
The Bachelorette is also likely to be longer next year.
“Absolutely we would make it longer,” TEN’s Head of Entertainment and Factual Programs, Stephen Tate, told News Corp. “It all comes down to casting, but this season has given us great confidence.”
TEN is also mulling spin-offs Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise -the latter has been under consideration for more than a year, before the network opted for Bachelorette.
Bachelor Pad brings together contestants from both series who go on dates and undertake challenges for a cash prize. Bachelor in Paradise similarly involves previous contestants, but set in a tropical location.
