It wasn't quite the ratings juggernaut The Bachelor was, but The Bachelorette finally drew in the viewers on its final night.

Georgia Love's quest for love brought in about 600,000 viewers most nights and often didn't make it into the top ten TV shows on the nights it aired.

But the audience was there to watch as she chose Lee over fan favourite Matty J with 972,000 tuning in to the final on Thursday night, according to OzTAM's overnight ratings.

It was a massive improvement on the show's opening night figures of 655,000, compared with the 882,000 The Bachelor pulled in on the first night.
