1. The Bachelorette’s Angie Kent just weighed in on Matt and Chelsie’s breakup.
Ever since The Bachelor’s Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod announced their split, we’ve all been wondering why their relationship failed to ‘translate from filming to the real, everyday world’.
But fellow Bachie star Angie Kent says she understands.
During Angie and Carlin’s appearance on Have You Been Paying Attention? on Monday night, Angie explained that she empathises with the struggles the Bachelor couple may have faced.
“Once you get out of the Bachie bubble, it’s up to you then to kind of create a connection and see how it goes,” Angie said.
“It’s hardcore,” she added.
Earlier this year, Angie told Mia Freedman on Mamamia’s No Filter podcast that it’s challenging to navigate a relationship when the show finishes.
“You’re dating in front of a cameraman and producers and all that, but it does become real because that’s all you know because you’re in the Bachie bubble,” Angie said.
“So then once you’re out, that’s when it starts. But still not really because it’s once the show is done that you have a normal-ish relationship. So it’s kind of navigating when you’re filming, when you’re together but not together, and then starting your relationship properly once it’s all done.”

The mother-of-two said despite having different careers, she and Alex make each other better people.

“We’re really alike in our drive, in our ambition. He’s an athlete. He wanted to be the best. I’m the same way. I just want to be great at what I do. We’re both like that,” she said.
