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).
