  1. Maybe the ridiculous amount of ads for it (and masterchef jr) has turned people off. It’s turned me off channel 10 in general. Any shows I need to watch are DVR’ed than fast forward through the ads.

    1. Strangely, this is the second season I have watched, the last with Sophie Monk. I chose it as there was a lack of content that was engaging me, and I thought I would revisit the brand. I find the two ladies from the country to be strong, witty, interesting and likeable, so not boring to me at all. but I respect your opinion. I’d rather see the blokes vying for their attention than the women who cry and bitch over one bloke.

    2. Yeah I have watched every single series of Bachelor, Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise and I watched pretty much all of the first episode of this series to give it a chance but havent returned. I dont really care for these sisters especially the older one who we don’t have much exposure of.

      From reports I hear even the guys in the show don’t care much for the sisters either and are just there to have some fun.
