Beauty and The Geek had 622,000 as the Geeks had to go undercover as professional photographers at a real-life photoshoot, with the chance to win a date for themselves and their Beauty. Alexander won taking himself and Eliza to a jazz bar.

Four of the couples were re-paired following chemistry from Jess and James, and host Sophie Monk, feeling Alexander was in to much of a comfort zone with Eliza.

Emergency then followed with 299,000.

Later in the evening, Footy Classified had 121,000 while 100% Footy had 63,000.


Seven had the top primary (18.7%) and network (27.6%) share thanks to a strong start from Home and Away with 633,000 followed by Farmer Wants a Wife with 660,000 viewers

On Farmer, Rob realised that he hadn’t found love with any of his three remaining ladies. “Unfortunately you can’t manufacture love, and if there isn’t a spark there, there’s nothing to build on.”

With LucyMeg, and Katie, in the kitchen, Rob explained, “I probably think we’re great friends, but I don’t think I feel that lightning bolt connection with any of you.” Appreciating the ladies’ busy lives with careers and children, Rob suggested it was best to leave the farm. “Oh for f**sake,” said Meg letting rip to camera after Rob announced his news. “This is my chance at finding love.”

Another shock happened when the Farmers were introduced to a new lady chosen for them by their mothers.

The Farmers met their mothers’ chosen ladies for a date at the pub. Andrew and Will decided they had stronger connections with the ladies already on the farm and chose not to invite them back.

Sam and Matt invited their mothers chosen ladies back to the farm to meet the other ladies.

Still not having been chosen for a one-on-one date and sensing Andrew has stronger connections with the other ladies, 26-year-old receptionist Caity decided to leave the farm.


The Project had 336,000 (6:30 pm) and 527,000 (7:00pm) as the show covered the ongoing Sydney outbreak of Covid-19 and Peter Helliar talked to Lebron James.

Part one of the MasterChef Grand Finale was the top non-news program of the night with 799,000 viewers and was #1 in the 16-39 demo.

Pete heads into the third and final round tonight leading with 53 points after serving up a 10/10 in round one with his King George whiting.

Have You Been Paying Attention? followed with 674,000 as 10 had the top two non-news programs of the night. The episode featured Mick Molloy, Kitty Flanagan and Alex Ward alongside regulars Sam Pang and Ed Kavalee.


Courtney Act’s One Plus One had 380,000 viewers as Act was joined by Aweng Chuol who talked about her early life in Africa, coming out, and representing Australia.

Four Corners and Media Watch followed with 450,000 and 451,000 respectively.
