We’re just one week into the new season of The Bachelorette Australia and the drama is already well underway.
Now, to make things even more ~dramatic~, a lone intruder is set to enter the mansion on Wednesday night’s episode.
Mamamia’s daily entertainment news podcast The Spill chatted to Angie Kent about the new season of The Bachelorette. Post continues after podcast.
But you see, this time around – there’s a catch.
In fact, it turns out this season’s intruder already knows Angie.
In an interview with TV Week, intruder and rescue dog advocate Ryan Anderson shared how he almost asked Angie on a date in the outside world.
“It started as common interest in the rescue-dog scene,” Ryan told the publication.
“We followed each other on Instagram and there was some banter,” he added.
“I’m an ambassador for an assistance dog charity and they had their gala ball coming up. I planned to ask her to the ball, but in the interim, she announced that she was the new Bachelorette.”

After he wasn’t able to organise a date with Angie, Ryan decided to apply for The Bachelorette instead.
“I let it be at first, but then I thought, ‘I’m going to get that date regardless’ and I subsequently applied for the show,” he said.
In a promo for the upcoming episode, it’s clear the other contestants weren’t exactly… pleased to see Ryan entering the competition.
“They thought there were ulterior motives because of the previous contact between Angie and me… it didn’t bother me too much. I’m here for Angie,” Ryan told TV Week.
