As of April 30, BIP will air at 8:40pm instead of its usual 7:30pm Tuesday to Thursday air time.
In its place is MasterChef Australia.
However, a Channel 10 spokesperson insists the move has nothing to do with the Bachelor and Bachelorette spinoffs' poor ratings.
"With MasterChef starting on Monday 29 April, our prime time schedule from Tuesday to Thursdays will go from one audience favourite to another."
According to OzTAM figures, BIP’s premiere brought in 553,000 metro viewers across the five major capital cities – down 150,000 from last year.
To put this into perspective, Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight attracted an average 1.4 million viewers per episode.
