'I'm too old'. Angie Kent reveals that she auditioned for FBoy Island Australia.

Former Bachelorette and Gogglebox star Angie Kent has shared that she auditioned to host Binge reality series FBoy Island Australia.

Abbie Chatfield hosts the new streaming reality show.

"I was asked to audition for FBoy Island, and Abbie got it," Angie told Yvie Jones on her podcast Two Girls One Pod.

"But watching it now, I don't think I would've been a good host at all.

"Because to be around that amount of men, I would have been fricken trying to clear their third eye chakras, I'd be getting out my sage, I'd be giving them free therapy, unwanted.

"I wouldn't have been a vibe."

Yvie, who said she'd seen Angie's audition tape, wondered if being around so many men would've "triggered" Angie, 33, following her experience on The Bachelorette in 2019.

"I'm too old, too," Angie said. "I think 20s Angie would revel in that sh*t. I'd eat that sh*t up, I'd be flirty, I'd be cute, I'd be fun.

"[But] 30s Angie, she's in her healing girl era. She is too old to be surrounded by 24 f**kwits. Soz to say it."


Last year, Angie replaced Lucas Callaghan as a presenter on the Channel Nine lifestyle series Space Invaders.

She and Yvie found fame as cast members of Gogglebox Australia's first eight seasons.

After leaving the series, she appeared in the jungle during season five of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! 

Also in 2019, she handed out roses as Australia's fifth Bachelorette.

She chose Carlin Sterritt in the finale. They announced their break-up eight months later.

She has also competed in two seasons of Dancing with the Stars, in 2020 and 2022.

FBoy Island Australia is airing now on Binge.
