The Bachelor Australia
Thursday, Ten, 7.30pm
In some ways, The Bachelor is like a fashion parade. We won’t ever capture bachelor Sam (left) slumming it in tracksuit pants, but it’s the wardrobe of the women that just about garners as much attention as the competitive antics. With each bachelorette having access to a fashion stylist and wardrobe behind the scenes, every outfit is as painstakingly put together as the dates. Tonight, Sam takes three girls on three single dates, but this time there’s a catch: they’re all the exact same date! It’s a great tactic to see which girl stands out the most, for good or bad reasons, but the biggest question is, who’ll be best dressed?

Meanwhile, Nat (Celia Pacquola, right) tries to help a local community with a multi-billion dollar government initiative.
