Angie will be following in the footsteps of former the Bachelorette Australia stars Sophie Monk and Ali Oetjen on Network 10's reality tv franchise. Given Angie's fanbase, built as part of her Gogglebox persona Angie and Yvie, it makes Channel Ten's choice that much more exciting. According to her LinkedIn profile, Angie has previously worked in marketing and production and even been an executive assistant. She's originally from the Sunshine Coast and currently resides in Sydney's inner-west.
Angie is looking forward to having 20+ men "throwing themselves" at her, but she knows what she's looking for.
"They have to have an amazing sense of humour - don't take yourself too seriously," she said in an interview with 10 Daily. "When it comes to looks I don't have a type. I'm not one of those people that's like 'tall, dark and handsome'. As long as you have a solid personality and a sensational smile, I'm pretty much sold."
In a 2018 interview with the Herald Sun, Angie was asked which other shows she wanted to go on, and it looks like she's good at predicting her future. Or at least putting things out there so good things happen to her…
"I think I would do I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! even though I would get so frightened," she said. "I wouldn't do [be a contestant on] The Bachelor Australia but I would do The Bachelorette and the men would fight for me. I couldn't think of anything worse than fighting a bunch of girls for one man."
Bachie executive producer Hilary Innes: "Angie is the perfect Bachelorette. She's genuine, funny, loveable and naturally gorgeous. I am so excited to see Angie's love story unfold."
The Bachelorette casting news comes on the heels of the announcement that 31-year-old astrophysicist Matt Agnew will serve as Australia's 2019's Bachelor.
