The Bachelor star Matty ‘J’ Johnson says he would be ‘absolutely gutted’ if the show is cancelled – after the new season was delayed to 2023

Matty ‘J’ Johnson says that he will be disappointed if The Bachelor, which has been suffering rock bottom ratings in recent years, is cancelled. 

The former Bachelor, who found love with Laura Byrne on season five of the show in 2017, told Pedestrian he’s still a huge fan of the series.   

‘I think it’s a shame they got rid of The Bachelorette, I still think there’s a really big appetite for that show and I also think there was appetite for Bachelor In Paradise,’ the 35-year-old said.

‘I’ll always have such a soft spot for Bach and I’ll be absolutely gutted if it doesn’t come back’ he added. 

‘When the ratings were kind of dropping off, [I was bummed because] I feel such a connection to the show and I’ll always root for it so I’m hoping it does well.’

It comes after news that the upcoming season of The Bachelor featuring three leads won’t air until 2023.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Channel 10 has made the difficult decision to postpone the much anticipated season 10 until next year.

‘Ten have made the call to delay the show until early 2023 so they can focus on promoting The Real Love Boat,’ revealed a well-placed source. 

‘I don’t see them airing reality dating shows back-to-back and there’s only 10 ratings weeks left… they would rather hold it and give it the publicity it needs.’

Both suitors and contestants will be now able to access their social media accounts after they were taken off them by the network ahead of the show going to air.

Leads Thomas Malucelli, Jed McIntosh and Felix Von Hofe have also been given permission to return to social media posting with new guidelines.

The source went on to tell Daily Mail Australia several of the contestants vying for Felix, Thomas and Jed’s hearts aren’t happy with the show being held over until the New Year. 

The Bachelors will air on Channel 10 next year
