HEARTBREAK AND HOPE

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

TOWNSVILLE ro­man­tics watched in force as the Honey Bad­ger sent shock­waves through The Bach­e­lor Aus­tralia’s loyal fol­low­ers last week.

Nick Cum­mins saved a twist to ri­val his hair­cut for the WIN Net­work pro­gram’s fi­nale as he chose nei­ther Brit­tany Hock­ley ( pic­tured) nor So­phie Tie­man as his ro­man­tic match.

The Honey Bad­ger left view­ers re­sem­bling stunned mul­lets as the Aus­tralian Wal­la­bies rugby union star broke not one, but two hearts. In the Townsville TV mar­ket, the show peaked at 22,845 view­ers, with a com­mer­cial share of 37.8 per cent on To­tal Peo­ple. That means about one in nine peo­ple in Townsville tuned into the show.

The Bul­letin pro­filed dozens of lo­cal sin­gles ear­lier this year, show­ing there are plenty of peo­ple look­ing for love in Townsville. Sev­eral of our own bach­e­lorettes have al­ready light­heart­edly con­tacted the pa­per seek­ing help to get in con­tact with Cum­mins since his de­ci­sion to stay sin­gle.

The most suc­cess­ful in­car­na­tion of The Bach­e­lor Aus­tralia to date, this year’s sea­son reached 94,186 Townsville view­ers over its du­ra­tion. Na­tion­ally, the fi­nale at­tracted a peak of 1.83 mil­lion view­ers.
