Severe weather coverage in Florida is nothing to mess with. People can get hurt or even killed.
I lead with this because it’s important to get the stance of this post correctly.
The highly anticipated Bachelor live finale was bumped on ABC (WFTV) in Orlando because of a tornado warning in Clermont.
Clermont is also Bachelor finalist, Rachel Recchia’s hometown. It’s where they had her hometown date.
Instead, viewers were watching WFTV weather coverage well into the first hour. The Bachelor broadcast hit the air at 9:03 pm est.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Severe weather also affected Hannah Brown’s season. The Bachelorette herself had to go on social media to calm down fans.
You can stream The Bachelor finale parts you may have missed tomorrow on Hulu tomorrow.
But fans here in Orlando had a lot to say..

“This is a dangerous storm” the meteorologists on air reiterated. All of the other Orlando area stations also pushed into special weather coverage.
