Undoubtedly, the producers of Australian Bachelor in Paradise teased us in the Ads with the promise of some sparks between two of the show’s contestants, Megan Marx and Elora Murger.
But much to the dismay of viewers nationwide, nothing of the sort happened. Not even close.
Here’s the part of the promo where Channel 10 deliberately cut together Megan talking about Elora with her kiss w/ a long-haired brunette, to make it seem like they were going to deliver a same sex couple. Turns out it was Thomas. Queerbaiting at its finest. #BachelorInParadise pic.twitter.com/ywKqzC0YUb

Safe to say, lots of people felt pretty ticked-off.

Lol way to set up the sneak peak ads to look like Megan kissed Elora.. @channelten that’s pretty shitty to advertise queerbaiting it would have been nicer if there was actually some same sex couples #BachelorInParadiseAU
