GRAB YOUR ROSES: The Bachelorette Angie will be on our TV screens in less than two weeks.

Prepare your couches. For self-described “couch-potato” Angie Kent is Australia’s new bachelorette, and goodness, we are so ready to waste another 83 hours of our lives.

Osher is right now blow-drying his hair, and a new round of men allegedly looking for love are trying to think of what absurd thing they can do to leave a memorable impression on Angie.

It’s an exciting time of year.

Here’s everything we know about the new season.

This year’s bachelorette choice of Angie Kent continues the theme of local celebrities trying to find love on the reality TV show.

Angie was first introduced to Australian audiences on Gogglebox before also being a contestant on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this year.

Angie shared with a NSW radio station in April 2019 that she’s been single since she was 21 years old because she "wanted to do everything myself".

"I wanted to travel, I wanted a career, I wanted to be with my friends. And now I feel like I’ve ticked a lot of boxes, and I’m ready to get amongst it."

Now, she'll have over 20 men vying fo her heart. Talk about going from zero to a 100. We love it.

Angie's brother goes undercover

On Thursday night, the first Bachelorette contestant was introduced in a promo: Angie's little brother, Bradley.

"It’s very different to anything that’s happened before…," Angie says as a suitor walks towards her on the red carpet.

"I am Angie's brother. I'm going into the mansion undercover," Brad confirms to the camera.


"I want you to go in there, and give me any sort of insight... Who would suit me?" Angie tells Brad, a personal trainer.

Please excuse me, as I prepare the popcorn.

The names and ages of the contestants, and their all-important Instagram handles, are yet to be revealed.

But we did get a glimpse at a few of them in the latest promo.

The mansion

The mansion will be the same one used for prior seasons, which I have found on Instagram (don't ask).

According to their Instagram, this mansion "is a prestigious, Hamptons-inspired estate offering that which only dreams are made of." Sounds lovely. 

They also say it is "infamously known as Nelly's Farm" and SORRY but why is it... "infamous"?

Perhaps because it is the exact location where a man nicknamed the "Honey Badger" pretended he was looking for love. Anyhoo.

Here's a nice video of the house...
