This year's Bachelorette has been announced and THIS IS THE BEST DECISION EVER.

NOTE: Since this post was published Channel 10 has confirmed the rumours. 


According to the very reliable source that is the internet (Oh, and WHO Magazine), the star of The Bachelorette Australia 2019 has been announced.

And we already love her.

The woman who will reportedly look for love with one of approximately 25 men named Daniel is none other than former Gogglebox favourite Angie Kent.

According to WHO, the 29-year-old from the Sunshine Coast will start filming in just weeks after Channel 10 put a casting call for bachelors earlier this month.

And though she only just returned from the South African jungle where she was filming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this year, Angie has already said she’d be down for a shot at finding reality TV love with a man (probably named Daniel, Danny or even Dan).

“I always said, ‘God no’, but you know what, I think after having more time on television now and being on the other side of the couch… I reckon I could be an alright Bachelorette,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle in February.


Last year’s Bachelorette with Ali Oetjin was the least-watched series of the show, so Channel 10’s decision to bring on a much-loved familiar face is a smart move they’ll be hoping translates into better ratings.

We can already envision Angie’s Gogglebox co-star Yvie acting as wingwoman and all the ridiculous games Osher could create involving… dogs. This is going to be great.

According to a WHO source, Angie is hopeful about finding love but "she's not desperate for a man in her life".

Oh, and she has one very important requirement:

"She loves her family and loves her dogs. If she finds a man who hates dogs – he’d be out straight away," the source said.

Same girl, same.
