Channel 10 has pulled the plug on a controversial reality TV show

Sorry Bachie fans… I hate to be the one to break it to you, but reality dating show Bachelor in Paradise has been cancelled after just three seasons.

The show, which see’s rejects of The Bachelor and Bachelorette reunite to find love in Fiji, has been dumped from Network Ten’s schedule in 2021.

The news was confirmed at the Channel Ten’s annual upfront presentation on Thursday.


“We love all the excitement, drama and of course love that Bachelor In Paradise brings, but we have decided to rest it in 2021,” a Network 10 spokesperson said.

It comes after this year’s premiere of the drama-filled reality show raked in the lowest number of viewers, with just 507,000 people tuning in, compared to 750,000 in 2018.

Since then, just two couples have lasted – including last season’s love birds Alisha Aitken Radburn and Glenn Smith, along with Mary Viturino and Conor Canning, also from last season.

There’s no word yet on whether or not the show will be renewed again in the future.
