ICYMI, last night TV history was made: The Bachelor Australia aired its first ever “overnight date.”
After 24 hours of ‘will they or won’t they’ teasers and what seemed like an eternity watching the world’s most boring date, at the world’s most lacklustre swimming hole (was the inflatable swan an OH&S requirement? That water looked filthy), Australia finally had their answer: they won’t.
