Another major change for The Bachelor as the dating show ditches the famous red carpet introductions for the contestants

This year’s season of The Bachelor Australia is getting a major make-over.

In addition to having three suitors instead of one, the producers of the Channel 10 dating show have also dropped the show’s famous red carpet introductions.

In most seasons of The Bachelor around the world, it’s traditional for the women to step out of a limousine, walk down a red carpet and introduce themselves to the suitor on the first night.

But this has been ditched for the news season and viewers won’t get to see the contestants arrive one by one, reports TV Tonight.

Channel 10 executive Daniel Monaghan said there will still be footage of the women arriving at the mansion, but wouldn’t provide any details about their entrances.

Mr Monaghan, the content boss for 10’s parent company Paramount ANZ, said viewers can expect the early episodes to be ‘different to what we have done before’.

The tenth season of The Bachelor Australia has already made headlines for tweaking the franchise’s well-established format.

The 2022 iteration has been rebranded ‘The Bachelors’ due to having three leading men instead of one. 

Mr Monaghan did stress, however, that certain traditions like the regular cocktail parties have survived the make-over.

‘It’s just that now there are three men and a lot more women at that cocktail party,’ he added. 

The Bachelor is also being filmed on the Gold Coast instead of Sydney for the first time in the show’s history.

It’s unclear whether the three suitors, Jed McIntosh, Felix Von Hofe and Thomas Malucelli, are living in the same waterfront home with the contestants.

The $14.5million two-storey mansion, located in Broadbeach Waters, includes four large bedrooms, five bathrooms, a gym and outdoor pool.

It comes after another Channel 10 executive defended casting three white suitors for the new season, insisting the full cast will include several diverse contestants.

The show has already faced criticism from franchise veterans Angie Kent and Abbie Chatfield, who say the line-up isn’t inclusive enough.

Beverley McGarvey, the Executive Vice President of Paramount Australia, told TV Tonight that while the Bachelors themselves are all white, the women vying for their hearts will be representative of Australia’s diverse population.

‘This year, we were trying to do something different with The Bachelor, even just in terms of the age range,’ Ms McGarvey said.

‘[That] allows us to cast different types of women as well.’
