Things are certainly getting serious on The Bachelorette.

After last night’s heated cocktail party, tonight’s episode saw Angie’s parents enter the mansion to grill the 10 remaining contestants.

While Angie’s mum took a number of the guys away for a chat, Angie’s dad took the rest of the guys away to play a game of Truth or Pass.

During the game, Angie’s dad asked the guys who Angie should steer clear.

Unsurprisingly, the men had one clear answer – Jamie.

“He’s just a bit much, really,” Ciarran said.

“I reckon he’d be the type of guy sending 10 messages a minute – ‘Where are you?’, ‘What are you up to?’, ‘What are you wearing?'” he added.

Meanwhile, Angie’s mum took Jamie away for a chat and it was all a little bit… uncomfortable.

Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast The Spill spoke to Angie Kent about the new season of The Bachelorette. Post continues after podcast.

Later on at the cocktail party, Ciarran admitted that they all threw Jamie under the bus, leading Jamie to practically run at Angie when she arrived.

While chatting about the ~allegations~ about him being a bit… intense, Jamie agreed that he’s “partially” a Stage Five Clinger. (Yes, really.)

“I think it’s sort of like a compliment. It’s almost like I’m too much of a good guy,” he added. Sweetie, no.


Then, to make matters even worse, Jamie argued that there’s only three genuine guys in the mansion. Yet, he refused to say who he thought the genuine guys were.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Despite leaving Angie frustrated, Jamie made it through to another week on the show.
