EXCLUSIVE: Channel 10 makes SHOCK decision about The Bachelors – leaving suitors and contestants fuming

The upcoming season of The Bachelor featuring three leads won’t air until 2023.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Channel 10 has made the difficult decision to postpone the much anticipated season 10 until next year.

‘Ten have made the call to delay the show until early 2023 so they can focus on promoting The Real Love Boat,’ revealed a well-placed source.

‘I don’t see them airing reality dating shows back-to-back and there’s only 10 ratings weeks left… they would rather hold it and give it the publicity it needs.’

Both suitors and contestants will be now able to access their social media accounts after they were taken off them by the network ahead of the show going to air.

Leads Thomas Malucelli, Jed McIntosh and Felix Von Hofe have also been given permission to return to social media posting with new guidelines.

Cast members are required to keep their accounts on private and not allowed to accept any new followers (this includes the girls from the show).

They’ve also been reminded not to post any spoilers and to ‘be careful who you are in photos with’ and under strict instructions not to tag or mention the show.

The source went on to tell Daily Mail Australia several of the contestants vying for Felix, Thomas and Jed’s hearts aren’t happy with the show being held over until the New Year. 

Thomas wasted no time returning to his social media account after a break, sharing a smiling selfie with his followers on Tuesday. 'I'm back! Did you miss me?' he wrote alongside a poll

‘The show was filmed four months ago and the cast weren’t able to return to social media until three months after the final air date,’ they said.

‘Some of them were hoping to be bona fide influencers by now.’
