In news that seems to be breaking the internet today, former Gogglebox star Angie Kent is set to become Australia’s newest Bachelorette.
Sweet yet sassy, this 29-year-old Bachelorette is wide open to falling in love, but also isn’t afraid to tell Mr. Wrong to hit the road.
The blonde crowd-favourite caused a station upset last year when she wrapped with Gogglebox and went on to feature in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here on a competing channel, but it seems it was only the first step in her taking over Australia’s television screens.
While filming is yet to begin, Angie is already a firm favourite with audiences, who have been become acquainted with her humorous personality in the reality-based shows.
Now, after years of taking care of the other people (and the rescue dogs) in her life, it’s time for Angie to put matters of the heart first and take the leap into a bed of roses.
Following on from Adelaide’s Ali Oetjen and the funniest Bachelorette yet, Sophie Monk, she has some fabulous blonde shoes to fill, but we have no doubt she’ll be up for the challenge.
On becoming the Bachelorette, Angie said: “I’ve always been the girl who loves to make everyone laugh, but now I reckon it’s time to have someone to laugh with me, rather than at me.
“I’m at a place now where I have loads of self-love, but I’m also open to all of life’s amazing possibilities. So, if 20 or so fellas want to join me, have a laugh and potentially be my perfect partner in life and love – I say – let’s give it a red hot go!”
Network 10 Executive Producer of The Bachelorette Australia, Hilary Innes, said: “Angie is the perfect Bachelorette. She’s genuine, funny, loveable and naturally gorgeous. I am so excited to see Angie’s love story unfold.” Hilary added.
The fifth season of The Bachelorette Australia will follow Angie as she navigates a world full of handsome suitors, cheese platters and extravagant dates all in the name of finding Mr. Right. With a Bachelorette this loveable, the competition is going to be tough.
