The premiere of Brooke Blurton’s season of the dating series only registered a pathetic 397,000 viewers – the worst in the entire history of the franchise.

Even the ill-fated spin-off Bachelor In Paradise, which was recently shelved by 10, has garnered stronger ratings over its three seasons.

The Bachelorette invaded across the board, bringing in the all-time low in subway viewers, national viewers, and even all major demos.

Compared to last season, which was led by sisters Elly and Becky Miles, Brooke’s premiere nationwide was 36.4% lower.

The show’s poor performance may come as a surprise to many viewers, who demanded that the franchise introduce more diversity.

As a result, 10 first did a franchise with Brooke, the first native and bisexual protagonist.

And for the first time in the worldwide history of the Bachelor franchise, Brooke has both men and women competing for her heart.
