Angie Kent is well aware that quite a few people in Australia believe she’s not really in love with The Bachelorette winner Carlin Sterritt.
The former Gogglebox star turned 2019 Bachelorette had fans of the series clutching their pearls and howling in pain after she chose Carlin over fan favourite Timm Hanly, but that’s only because she believes Australia didn’t really get to know her new boyfriend.
“I would never in a million years sign a contract that would make me stay with someone and be in a relationship,” Angie told Mamamia’s The Spill podcast when asked if she and Carlin were only keeping up appearances for the sake of some paperwork.
“That is not my idea of happiness. I would never do a TV show where that was the outcome. It’s all too raw and vulnerable and open.
“I did see people saying we were only staying together for money, for one hundred thousand dollars and I mean, I will take the money but to stay together for a two-year contract? I would never do that.”
Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt share the truth about their relationship contract on Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast The Spill.
During The Bachelorette’s Byron Bay finale episode, Angie told Timm she thought of him as a “soulmate” after he gifted her a ring. It was something she had to explain to Carlin the moment they were first alone together and away from the cameras.
“The moment when we were first in a room together without sound equipment and cameras, there were no words,” Angie said on The Spill. “We just wanted to hold each other and kiss each other.”
“We cracked open some champagne and the first thing we talked about was what had gone on, so I got to hear from her how things were on the show,” said Carlin. “At the end of the day, if Angie was to really reflect on what her heart wanted, it was me.
“So it does not affect me when I hear her say Timm was her soulmate, I can see it. As long as she doesn’t go running back to him.”
