AUS­TRALIA has fallen head over heels for as The Bach­e­lorette smashes on­line rat­ings records.

The sec­ond episode of the Chan­nel 10 se­ries knocked fan­tasy phe­nom­e­non Game of Thrones off its perch and this month broke the record for the high­est sev­en­day on­line catch-up au­di­ence in Aus­tralia.

The Septem­ber 21 episode at­tracted an ex­tra 179,000 view­ers want­ing to catch up on­line after it had aired on TV.

It’s the big­gest in­crease for a sin­gle episode of any show on Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion.

Fox­tel’s hugely pop­u­lar show Game of Thrones sea­son 7, episode 7, reached 176,000. The first two episodes of The Bach­e­lorette dom­i­nated the most watched shows on­line in Aus­tralia, rank­ing one and three in the OzTAM seven-day VPM rat­ings.

Net­work Ten chief con­tent of­fi­cer said the Gold Coast celebrity (pic­tured) was a mas­sive rat­ings suc­cess on­line and on TV.

“Aus­tralia has fallen in love with So­phie Monk and the bach­e­lors, re­gard­less of what screen they are watch­ing them on,” Ms McGar­vey said.
