Ok Channel 10. You’ve given The Bachelor franchise a red hot go over the last four years. You’ve gifted us five beautiful couples, one engagement, two victories for the single mums of Australia and one total asswipe (I’m looking at you, Garvey).

And that’s The Bachelor.
Listen to Laura Brodnik and Amy Cooper discuss the final episode of The Bachelorette — and what we could be doing better in 2017.
The franchise has been going since 2002, has spawned multiple spin-offs and, most importantly, is a bloody good watch.

One Bachelor got to the final two and sent them both home.
