When the fine people of Noosa tuned into the premiere of The Bachelorette this week, they may have been a bit… confused by a familiar face.

Angie’s face best sums this up:
As the episode played out Jess outed himself as a bit of a villain, but didn't miss the opportunity to spruik his political credentials and his home region.

Listen to The Bachelorette Angie Kent talk about what really went on while filming the series and how she knew who to trust.
