Here it is, folks. The moment you’ve all been waiting for: Channel Ten has officially confirmed that Australia’s next Bachelorette is Angie Kent, who most of you know better as one half of the extremely popular Gogglebox duo Angie & Yvie.
After speculation swirled throughout the day, Ten officials took the lid off a short time ago, confirming Kent as our fifth Bachelorette.
29-year-old Kent is just weeks removed from returning from the jungle after her stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Outta Here, but will soon begin filming the upcoming series of the Bachelorette, in which a raft of besuited dudes will be funnelled in front of her for her own amusement and approval.
After returning from the jungle, Kent spoke to Ten media and ruled out ever taking on The Bachelor, but strongly hinted at a potential upcoming turn at the role stating it was “about time Angie Kent had a nice line-up of men trying to please her!”
Warner Brothers Australia put out an open casting call for men looking to get on this year’s season two weeks ago.
So there you go mates! From watching TV for a living to being on TV for a living. It’s a real meteoric rise.
