The Bachelor leads in again in the ratings with 1.190 million

It was another awkward moment from Nick Cummins on The Bachelor when he showcased his ballet moves during a date with Emily Dibden on Thursday. 

But The Bachelor was another ratings winner for Ten, according to Oztam.

A national audience of 1.190 million tuned in to watch the former rugby union star dance his way into Emily’s heart, despite his awkward interaction with the stunner during the wine and dine portion of their date.

In the same episode, audiences saw the Honey Badger brutally dump Shannon Baff, who desperately told him about what could have been – if only he had taken her on another date. 

It proved to be another successful evening for Network Ten whose ratings did very well in the lucrative prime-time time slot nationwide.

Over on the Seven Network, Home and Away’s hour long episode managed to record a sizable national audience number of 912,000.
