Why women are choosing a ‘death date’ instead of a ‘date night’
From: Nye Toivonen, Newsroom, The Bachelor, 30 October 2018 19:21:13A year ago, the most popular Bachelor episode of the year was “Suit Yourself”.
In a year that has seen a number of high profile Bachelor contestants die, the final episode of Bachelor in Paradise has proven to be the most watched ever.
What could be better than seeing what is shaping up to be a hugely entertaining and emotional night out with the ladies?
It was a topic of conversation among the Bachelor fans and was also the topic of discussion amongst the hosts of Bachelor In Paradise.
“You guys are really looking at the future of the show,” Rachel Lindsay, Bachelor in Park, told host Simon Cowell on “The Voice”.
“The idea of going into a room with no one around and you are alone in the room with the girls, it’s one of the most intense experiences you’ll ever have.”
What did she mean by that?
“I mean, it really was like a death date,” she said.
“It was the most amazing moment of your life.”
The episode, which saw Rachel and Simon compete in the challenge of dressing up in their favourite bikinis, was watched by an estimated 15 million viewers in its first week.
The producers of the Bachelor in the Park series had also been keen to keep the viewers guessing about what would happen on the night.
However, it seems they were not wrong, as the show has proven that Bachelor in Paris is still one of its most popular seasons.
A number of people have claimed that Rachel Lindsay’s appearance in the episode made it one of Bachelor’s most watched episodes ever, and it has since been confirmed by a number different sources.
According to a tweet from the @bachelorinparadise twitter account, the last episode of season six was watched 5.7 million times, making it the most viewed Bachelor episode ever.
The Bachelor in The Park season six finale was watched 1.4 million times.
It has also been claimed that the final two episodes of season seven were watched 3.3 million times on the channel, which means that the average viewer watched the finale twice, once at 9:35pm and once at 11:35am on Friday night.
Bachelor in Paradise season six, the one which will be broadcast on the ABC on the 27th October, is set to be one of many high profile deaths in the coming year.
Bachelor in Love star Michaela Watkins has been reported to have died at the age of 33, while Australian Survivor winner and contestant Katie McGrath has passed away at the height of her popularity.
On the other hand, a number recent contestants who have died during the course of their Bachelor careers have been incredibly popular, and the recent death of contestant and fellow Australian Survivor contestant Jason Ellis has already been met with criticism.
However, Rachel Lindsay did not seem to think it was appropriate to go into the bedroom with the two girls.
“They’re not the kind of girls who go down to the bathroom,” she told Cowell.
“I’m not the type of girl to go to the toilet and just go out for a walk.”
In a previous interview, Rachel had said that she and Simon had planned to go on a date, and when they realised that they could not go out, they decided to head to the club instead.
“We went on a trip to the pool with the girl from the bar, and then we were all going to a club for a night out,” she had said.
“I just thought, ‘We’re going to have a drink and we’re going for it.'”
Rachel Lindsay is known for her role as the host of the reality TV show The Bachelor and she is currently in her second season of The Bachelor.
