This year's seasons of The Bachelorette has only two episodes under its belt, but it looks like Australia just isn't too phased on the fourth season of the previously popular series.
The premiere had extremely low viewer numbers, but will they go up? Will the Bachie drama reel people in?
Well, it's certainly trying...
This morning, TV WEEK published an interview with two of the frontrunners on The Bachelorette and honestly, we've not seen drama like this on the show EVER!
The publication spoke to Charlie Newling, who received the first single date of the series last Thursday, and Bill Goldsmith, who received the "wild rose" at the very first cocktail party.
If you've seen the previews for Wednesday's episode, you'll know that Charlie and Bill aren't on good terms with each other, why? Who knows.
During the interview with TV WEEK, the men had literally nothing nice to say about each other at all, but did they really have a falling out, or is this just a beef that's been created to get viewers interested in Ali Oetjen's search for love?
First, Charlie threw daggers at Bill saying that he's exactly like Ali's attention-seeking ex, Grant Kemp.:
"He reminds me of her ex, Grant [Kemp]. I don’t trust him. I can see through him. He’s not being honest with Ali and he’s saying what she wants to hear. Out of everyone, he’s the only one who hasn’t shared his story. To me, he’s hiding something."
Then Bill jumps in, saying that Charlie was the only person in the Bachelorette mansion that didn't actually ask about his past.
"He didn’t make the effort and I even told him he was the only person who hadn’t asked me about my past. He was just using it as an excuse to be shitty with me."
He continued on to say that Charlie actually didn't speak to many of the other guys in the house at all.
"He showed his true colours pretty early on. He was very jealous, and every time someone came back from a single date, he wouldn’t speak to them for, like, a week. Charlie is an alpha male − to him, only his opinion counts. In the end, he was almost trying to father Ali and act like her spokesperson."
Charlie explained that this season of The Bachelorette does get heated and he also confirmed that yes, he did keep his distance from the other guys in the mansion, a statement that Cheyne (who was sent home by Ali last Thursday) gave to Pedestrian last week.
"It’s definitely a lot more competitive this year There’s a lot more drama. At the start, it was all about the bro code, but it wasn’t long before people realised there was some good competition.
"I’m here to meet Ali – not to make friends. And if you’re not here for the right reason, there’s the door. It’s wasting my time and everyone else’s who are here for the right reasons."
So, do Bill and Charlie actually hate each other, or are they really friends and just trying to draw in an audience?
