In just over a week, Australia will watch Gogglebox and I’m A Celebrity’s Angie Kent begin her search for true love on The Bachelorette 2019.
So far, Osher and the Bach machine have only given us a few glimpses of what the 29-year-old’s season of the reality TV dating show will be like.
In a new interview with Stellar, the reality star reckons the nation won’t be shocked to learn she’s not “the typical Bachelorette Australia is used to seeing.”

“Yeah, look — I am a bit of a bogan. I’ve got a big mouth but a big heart,” Angie said.
“I reckon it’s because I’m a Queenslander. But there are different types of bogans. There’s the kind who are kind of ignorant; I’m not one of those. I just like to get dirty, and I’d rather live in a jungle than a mansion.”
Angie will be Australia’s fifth Bachelorette, following in the footsteps of Sam Frost, Georgia Love, Sophie Monk and Ali Oetjen. She said her season won’t be all rose petals, candles and strategically placed cheese boards. Well, there’ll be a bit of that, but also a lot of realness.
“I think people see me and think, ‘She’s relatable, she’s a bit of a grub. We laugh with her and at her at the same time.’”
“All I said was I didn’t want to be morphed into a stereotypical Bachelorette. I wanted to feel like I [was] still me — strong and independent — and that the partner I pick would match that.”
