Mum shares her absolute disgust at recent episode of The Bachelor Australia showing a love triangle between constentants dressed as ‘students’ and their ‘teacher’ fighting over the cute boy.

Mum of two and popular blogger, Adele Barbaro- The Real Mumma, has taken to Facebook to vent her anger.

“Watching the Batchy tonight where grown adults were dressed as ‘naughty school kids’ and sexualised as their teacher tried to get in on the action. How is it still ok to sexualise school kids?

“They are children. It’s doing nothing for the head space of young girls and boys and it certainly sending out a message that kids of school age are more attractive if they have a short skirt, a lose tie and few more button undone. It’s dangerous.”

Adele added in comments, “Women and men of all professions are sexualised and it’s revolting. My mum is a nurse and she I spat on, bitten, scratched, insulted, swarn at, abused and degraded. Yet, has been a nurse for nearly 40 years and keeps going. Seeing a girl in a naughty nurse costume makes me fuming. Only those that one know a nurse would wear one.”

Her post has attracted loads of comments with people arguing the show is nothing but trash.

We recently shared the debate over whether young girls should be watching demeaning reality shows like The Bachelor and Love Island. Read that argument here.

  • The bachelor is still being promoted as the bachelor being ready to at least have a relationship with the woman of his choice from the group he meets. I wonder if this is the guy who was interviewed recently who was very embarrassed. I only saw a promotion / short of the interview. I didn’t watch it.


  • I didn’t really think about it in this way, I too just took it for the reality show that it is but I guess it might have not been the wisest choice.


  • I take these shows for what they are reality TV which is produced. I do watch these shows to have an informed opinion and watched this episode. Everyone looked a little awkward for the photo shoots; the women and the man.


  • Definitely bad taste, trashy show, never watch it, making out women are submissive and men are put on a pedestal and can do no wrong. Disgusting breeding of chauvinistic behaviors and women having to be judged by looks.


  • These reality shows are just trash & it is more interesting to watch paint dry, it is no wonder that people are switching over to Pay TV. I am sick of these trashy shows & there are so many of them, then we have the repeats & heavy advertising so most nights I ignore it & watch Netflix.


  • Yep, not something I like my kids to watch or watch myself !

    • Don’t thinks kids should or would want to watch this show.


  • really poor taste and the photos are too


  • I’ve always thought the sexy school girl thing was a bit weird.


  • The show is pretty ridiculous & honestly good for a laugh. I do agree that adults dressing up in sexy school uniforms & portraying a teacher student love triangle is stepping over the line. Young impressionable kids would watch this & possibly think it’s ok in the real world. It’s not so much wearing school uniforms that’s distasteful but the theme that went with it.
