Last night’s finale of The Bachlorette Australia 2021 was an emotional rollercoaster, and while we loved every second, there’s was one huge editing fail!

While we watched as Brooke Blurton gave Darvid Garayeli the coveted final rose (after ending things with Jamie-Lee Dayz), the finale featured PLENTY of tears from everyone — including us at home!

Amongst the suspense, viewers noticed one major editing mishap. Brooke’s fake eyelashes appeared to disappear and reappear during her intimate moment with Darvid!

One So Dramatic! spy spotted the questionable editing…

”Brookes eyelashes in the finale appeared, disappeared, and then reappeared multiple times!!! Those lashes have more of a social life than me… clearly places to go and people to see!” they wrote.

Emotions Ran High on The Bachelorette 2021 Australia Finale

The Bachelorette Australia 2021 was a ground-breaking season, and the finale was arguably the most emotionally charged in the history of The Bachelor Australia franchise.

During Brooke’s vows with her (now official) Persian Prince Darvid, emotions ran high as the couple laid out their feelings for each other.

Poor Brooke, there were so many tears! No amount of eyelash glue would have made it possible for her lashes to stay on.

Brooke still looked stunning regardless and we are absolutely melting over her pre-ceremony confession.

Brooke told the cameras: “Darvid has restored my faith. Loving someone so unconditionally and knowing they love you back… he is the most beautiful man I’ve ever met.”

Then, the two both confessed their love for each other.

This Shows Just How Much The Bachelorette Australia is Edited

This minor mishap goes to show just how much the show is chopped and edited.

One minute, her lashes were there, and then POOF, they were gone… AND THEN they were back again.

The inconsistency has raised questions regarding the accuracy of how the conversation between Brooke and Darvid was portrayed.

Honestly, we would’ve been quite happy to watch an extra hour (or two) of the finale if it meant we weren’t missing anything!

Contestants on previous seasons of The Bachelor, including Abbie Chatfield and Cassandra Wood, have spoken out about the show’s editing being an unreliable depiction of what actually goes on.

Both of the girls received what they described as a “bad edit,” with Abbie continuing to poke fun at her trope as the “villain” on The Bachelor Australia season 7 on social media.

Cassandra, who appeared alongside Brooke on Season 6 of The Bachelor, blamed the editors for making her look like a “stage five clinger.”
