It was easily outnumbered by 10’s other primetime program Gogglebox, which notched almost double The Bachelorette’s figures with 596,000 viewers.

The Project also beat the reality dating program, but also had a paltry audience of 394,000.

Oh dear: The show drew in a dire 345,000 viewers – 52,000 less than the opener 

The only saving grace for The Bachelorette last night was that it managed to place second in the 16-39 key demographic and fourth in the 18-49 category.

Results taken from the key demographics imply that the program is being watched by younger viewers.

Channel 10 took in a low audience share of 13.7% and 20.4% for the network for Thursday.

It comes as the station revealed in their upfronts earlier this week that both The Bachelorette and The Bachelor would be renewed for 2022.

That’s despite both programs recording their worst TV ratings of all time in their respective seasons this year.
