Brooke Blurton says she was the WORST Bachelorette – as Channel 10 axes the show in 2022 after her season plummeted to the lowest ratings yet
Brooke Blurton has admitted that she feels she was the worst Bachelorette – if the ratings are anything to go by.
In an Instagram Stories post this weekend, the former reality star said she was ‘s**t’ at the role.
‘Like yeah, the ratings will probably tell you otherwise. Actually no, they’ll tell you that I was pretty s**t’ the 27-year-old said.
‘Actually, I did win the youth categories, that’s all that counts for me. But I was so s**t. I was sleep deprived, I was worked like a dog.
‘I just can’t believe I got through that whole thing and still found at least someone in the end. Not with them now, but I just can’t believe it.
‘I’m definitely not built for something like that and I think still to this day that I was the s**ttest Bachelorette. That’s not very positive, but I still think that.’
Brooke added that she does have some things to be proud of when it comes to her time on the dating series.
‘I feel and still very proud that I was your first EVER First Nations and bisexual Bachelorette’ she said.
‘As much as that chapter has come to a full close. Representation, inclusivity, diversity still matters. That chapter won’t ever stop. One day I will find my person, but right now I’m happy dating myself.’
It comes after Channel 10 has axed The Bachelorette after last year’s season failed to attract a loyal weekly audience.
Beverley McGarvey, the Executive Vice President of Paramount Australia, confirmed the series would not be returning to screens in 2022.
‘We probably won’t have an iteration of Bachelorette that is on air this year,’ she told TV Tonight.
‘But actually we haven’t always had an iteration of Bachelorette on air every year. If you think way back to the beginning, we had two or three years that we didn’t, and then we introduced Bachelorette.’
However, Ms McGarvey confirmed the network hasn’t ruled out The Bachelorette returning in the future.
Channel 10 had previously confirmed the series for 2022 but later announced The Real Love Boat would be airing instead.
Last year’s premiere of The Bachelor, starring pilot Jimmy Nicholson, garnered only 482,000 viewers compared to 2020’s premiere, which drew 681,000 viewers.
Jimmy’s finale brought in 629,000 viewers, which was a significant drop from the previous year, which saw 879,000 viewers tune in to see Locky make his decision.
The Bachelorette fared even worse last year, with Brooke Blurton’s season bringing in the lowest audience since the show’s Australian launch in 2015.
