THE BACH­E­LOR NZ

Love it or hate it, ev­ery­one’s talk­ing about it. It’s be­come an an­nual rit­ual for of­fice watercooler con­ver­sa­tions across the coun­try to ar­rive at the scan­dalous dat­ing show, and this year has proved no dif­fer­ent.

Bach­e­lor Zac Franich, new host Dominic Bow­den and a fresh flurry of fe­male suit­ors once again kept Ki­wis glued to the screen as it reg­u­larly topped Three’s list of most watched shows. Judg­ing by the sheer amount of scan­dal, cov­er­age, hub­bub and hype the show en­tails, The Bach­e­lor tops our pick for Hottest Real­ity TV.

How­ever, Bravo’s flag­ship show Real Housewives of Auckland also de­serves a wor­thy men­tion for helping launch the sassy Gilda Kirkpatrick and cham­pagne-ob­sessed Anne Bat­ley-bur­ton into the pub­lic lime­light. The show has po­ten­tial to be­come a main­stay on the nation’s real­ity TV ros­ter (although fewer racial slurs would be much ap­pre­ci­ated).
