Despite Melburnians under a curfew, The Bachelor still managed its lowest-ever finale ratings.

The episode drew just 694,000 viewers, peaking at 879,000 for the crucial moment where he picked Irena over Bella.

Last year, Matt Agnew’s finale peaked at 1.17 million.

TV Tonight reported that it did win it’s time slot, however, defeating 7:30 (516,000), The World’s Most Scenic Railways (390,000) and The Heights (213,000).

In Perth, It seems as thought we started out watching 7:30 before finally flicking it over to see who Locky chose:

  • The Bachelor: 65,000, peaking to 72,000
  • 7:30: 66,000
