'Bachelorette' broadcast in Detroit mistakenly airs 2020 verkiesingsuitslae ten gunste van Trump in Michigan

Viewers who tuned in to Tuesday’s episode of “The Bachelorette” in Detroit were shocked to see results mistakenly displayed on screen for next week’s presidentsverkiesing.

As the drama unfolded between Clare and Yosef on the reality show, viewers took to social media to note that WXYZ-TV seemed to accidentally post 2020 election results during the broadcast on the left side of the screen. The display showed President Donald Trump had defeated his opponent, Joe Biden, in the state. It also showed projections for several other local races despite Election Day being a week away.

WXYZ-TV told Fox news in a statement that the results were randomly generated as part of a test of the system they’ll use on the actual Election Day that was mistakenly broadcast during “The Bachelorette.”
