If you are a fan of The Bachelor and wondering how to watch the Australian version of the show, then this is the article you have been crying out for.
In this guide, I will tell you everything you need to know to watch The Bachelor Australia on Tenplay. To enjoy the show in the UK, you will need a VPN such as ExpressVPN.
But if you are new to VPNs, don't worry. They are simple, cheap, and I am going to tell you all the information you need to get them up and running and allowing you to watch the show.
Step 1: Choose a VPN service
The Bachelor Australia airs on Channel Ten in Australia and is also streamed live and on-demand on their Tenplay streaming service. However, if you try to stream the show on Tenplay outside Australia you will find the service blocked.
This is because Channel Ten only hold the rights to broadcast The Bachelor Australia in Australia and therefore are required to try and stop people outside Australia accessing it.
They do this by looking at your IP Address. This is a small bit of code which tells websites you visit where in the world you are located. If you have an IP Address from outside Australia, Tenplay won't let you watch The Bachelor Australia.
This is where a VPN comes in. When you connect to a VPN, all of your internet data is forced down an encrypted pathway and through an external server. When it hits this server, your IP Address is replaced with that of the server.
And if that server is in Australia, it will look as if you are too. This means that by connecting to a VPN server in Australia, you can fool Tenplay into letting you watch The Bachelor Australia no matter where in the world you are.
There are a lot of VPNs to choose from, but the best for this job is ExpressVPN.
ExpressVPN offers fast connections, state-of-the-art security and a great 30-day money back guarantee. If you subscribe for a year, you can get 3-months completely free too.
They are not the only option and if you want to look further afield, my top 3 recommendations are:

Step 2: How to watch The Bachelor in the UK
Once you have chosen your VPN provider, the next step is getting the service up and running.
This is a remarkably simple process, but to keep things really easy, I have created a step-by-step guide to walk you through it:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website, choose your preferred subscription package and sign up for their service following the onscreen instructions.
- Head to the Products section of their website and download either their Windows or Mac app. If you are planning to watch on a mobile device, search for ‘ExpressVPN' in your app store.
- Once downloaded, open the ExpressVPN app and login or activate it. Their activation code can be found in the ‘My Account' area of their website.
- Next, click on Selected Location (1), All (2), Asia Pacific (3), select Australia (4) and then Sydney (or one of the other cities).
- ExpressVPN should connect automatically. If it doesn't, just click Connect.
- Once things go green, open your web browser and visit the Tenplay website. You should now be able to stream The Bachelor Australia.
If you find that Tenplay doesn't work, just connect to a different Australian server and try again. There are lots to choose from and it shouldn't take more than a couple of tries at the most to find one which works.
