Everything we thought we knew about The Bachelorette is a lie and now we do not know who to trust.
If you’ve dabbled in The Bachelorette/Bachelor franchise you would know that a great deal of anxiety surrounds the bi-weekly cocktail parties.
Firstly, because someone is going home. And secondly, because time is always running out. Will the contestants get an opportunity to speak to Sophie? Should they interrupt someone else’s conversation now? Or later? As wise Osher always says, “time with Sophie is the most important thing”.

We spoke to eliminated bachelor Peter, who told us that in actual fact, those cocktail parties go for “half a day”.
“Obviously it’s not the Truman Show,” he said, so they can’t make it look dark if it’s actually light. But the cocktail parties start at sunset, and go into the early hours of the morning.
But today, Bingham offered us some insight into what happens during those six to eight hour parties.
We asked how many people Sophie generally gets to speak to throughout the course of the night, given that everyone seems so impatient to whisk her away.
“Everybody, everybody does…” Bingham said.
We have most definitely been led to believe that only a select few are summoned by The Bachelorette and if they don’t get in quick, they’ll miss out on catching up with her.
