itunes spoils ending  vangraaf  3 star

I downloaded the whole season, and realize the final episode is titled “Sean and (girl’s name)’s wedding”! Kinda spoils the surprise, iTunes!

The Wedding  me8989  5 star

Does anyone know if their wedding will be posted here on iTunes? It was so beautiful and I would love to watch it again (and again)!! <3 <3

Finale?  Kristen3237  2 star

My rating plummeted with no finale and I paid for the season-- really? Who wants the after the final rose yet-- where's episode 12 that I paid for!?!

Final episode?  Kfbpolaa  1 star

Where is the final episode?! Episodes are always posted by noon London time. Not today. Now the after the final rose is up but not the finale?!?!!?! Unacceptable. I now know who has won. Thus ruining the entire season, because I tried to download through abc with commercials but can't because I'm out of country. Sooooo mad. I want a season refund!!!

Apple, Bachelor fans should not be toyed with!  meliz8282  5 star

Ok, seriously? After the Final Rose is available before the Season Finale???

So what is the big delay?  J08n  1 star

I'm still waiting a day later for yesterday's episode to be made available. Why the delay? And why can't you at least let subscribers know what to expect. My finale party is now a total bust.

The sesong finale  Toncitte  1 star

Where is the selsom finale? Same as last year.. Why do we have to Wait so long to se the finale.

Boring  Zoe1244211  1 star

Worst season ever. Sean Lowe is the most boring bachelor in Bachelor history. I'm not into religious bachelors or born again virgins - why not have sexy overnight fantasy dates? Sean tells all of the women "I'm crazy about you" - how unoriginal. Not into his looks, bodybuilder body, or personality. And the live show format during the two hour season finale was distracting, uneventful, and a time filler. It should have been Arie this season - at least the show would have been sexy and fun, unlike the snoozefest of this season. Can't recommend this show.

Finale?  Sasha wins  4 star

How come the "after the final rose" is ready to download but not the season finale??

Upload episode 12 already  LouisT3333  3 star

Come on. The final episode (12) hasn't been uploaded, yet 13 (after the rose) is out?

Great but  cassandra113  4 star

Where is episode 12? I purchased the entire season to miss the finale? Then you guys upload the finale rose and ruin who the winner lol really?….

How long do I have to wait?  laurynbethany  5 star

So I bought the season pass, and I just recieved a notice on my email that it was ready to download on itunes, and then I check and realize that its episode 13 after the final rose.....why didn't I get 12 too! It's the best one! And yes there is a way to watch it free online, I found a website that is amazing, free with no download :)

Wish the episodes were available more promptly  Wilxy12  4 star

I agree with some other raters, it is disappointing that the episodes become available so slowly. Although I purchased the season pass, I have ended up watching most episodes online because they are available significantly before my downloads, which discourages me from purchasing future seasons.

Great, but...  AC2933  4 star

Great Bachelor, but why can I watch it for free online, before I can download the episode I've paid for? Frustrating!!
