Advertisements have been used throughout generations to persuade the viewer to purchase the product that the company is trying to sell.

Media Literacy Journal 1: Intended Audience Littered with behind the scene looks, final interviews, spoilers and deleted scenes; The Bachelorette site is clearly intended to intrigue a wide audience of women. With access to never before seen footage, women are compelled to step into the shoes of the beloved cast members and experience the making of the show. Although watching the show and surfing the site is free, the extravagance of the show is tailored to a certain class of wealth.
