Network TEN has announced the New South Wales Premier will be next season’s Bachelorette.
“She’s been notoriously unlucky in love,” says TEN’s programming boss Steve Pearson. “So we’re excited to help Gladys find that special person.”
It’s not the first time TEN executives have opted for a high profile Bachelorette, casting entertainer Sophie Monk in the role in 2017.
“Ratings for this season’s show are worryingly low for TEN,” says media analyst Hamish Dole.
“So the network is pulling out all the tricks to ensure viewers tune in to next year’s show.”
With Gladys Berejiklian now seemingly off the hook for dating a disgraced former Liberal party MP, TEN has begun calling for applications from single men to appear on the show.
“I cant wait to meet Mr Right,” says the Premier. “But I’ll be keeping a close eye on any contestants who I suspect might be on the show for the wrong reasons.”
Filming is expected to commence in February next year.
