Hold on to your roses

With reality television fans getting ready to mourn the end of Married At First Sight, here’s some exciting news from the love gods to brighten your day. Australia officially has a new Bachie queen with Angie Kent confirmed as The Bachelorette Australia 2019. The 29-year-old Queenslander is best known for her appearances on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and GoggleBox. 

After weeks of speculation, the news was made official via the Bachelorette’s social media page: “Introducing our lovable Bachelorette for 2019, Angie. From the couch to the jungle, she’s ready to find love.❤️”

Kent is set to start filming in just weeks and when previously asked whether she would be open to being this year’s Bachelorette, she expressed her interest in the program. 

“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.

“I’m definitely open to finding somebody. I just turned 29 so home girl’s not getting any younger, so for sure!”

The upcoming season will mark the fifth time we’ve seen a Bachelorette look for love on national television with Angie stepping into the role previously filled by Ali Oetjen, Sophie Monk, Georgia Love, and Sam Frost.
