Angie Kent has thrown serious shade at former Married At First Sight bride Jessika Power, as their bitter feud shows no sign of slowing down. The ex-Gogglebox star, who debuts as The Bachelorette on Wednesday night, channeled Mariah Carey by saying: 'I don't know her!'The rivalry between the two women began on Sunday, after Angie was quoted in a newspaper as saying that MAFS was 'super trash'.
With 20 men to choose from on The Bachelorette, many of Angie Kent's suitors were determined to stand out from the pack.
As they prepared to meet the 29-year-old former Gogglebox star, plenty of this year's bachelors resorted to gimmicks.
And they certainly made an impression on Angie with their memorable entrances, including one suitor who insisted he looked like Zac Efron.

Do we already know that Bachelorette's Carlin won't win?
Last year it was a "key" and this year the Bachelorette's Angie Kent hands out a yellow "first impression" rose. But does this spell doom for Angie and Carlin Sterritt? First we thought fireman Jamie Doran might be in for a shot, but after that, umm, well, display in the first episode, we're not so sure.Then there is fireproofer Timm Hanly who turned up with a bunch of Angie's favourite sunflowers, giving us all the "never judge a book by its cover" feels.
Kayde, 25, arrived dressed as a Baywatch lifeguard, which left Angie confused when he revealed he was actually a car salesperson.
'You... you're not, like, David Hasselhoff though?' Ange asked him, prompting Kayde to tell her he was dressed as Zac Efron from the Baywatch movie.
'Oh my God! The fact that I didn't pick up on the Zac Efron vibe was super cringe,' remarked Angie.
'Story of my life. And then when I saw it, couldn't unsee it. Yeah, you're like Zac Efron's twin, hey?' Angie said awkwardly.
First to meet Angie was Timm, 27, who arrived carrying a massive bouquet of sunflowers.
'Wait. What? Did he know that my favourite flower is sunflower?' laughed Angie after spotting him walking towards her.
But Tim claimed he 'always had 'em in my house', prompting Angie to tell him she thought of sunflowers as a 'sign' from her late grandmother.
As he chivalrously draped his jacket around her shoulders, the show's tell-tale winner's theme song began to play.
Meet The Bachelorette frontrunner Carlin Sterritt
Carlin Sterritt is the frontrunner poised to win Angie's heart on The Bachelorette. The F45 trainer is also an actor, model and budding influencer, with fans already pegging him as the winner. He's super hot, polite and doesn't seem to be filled to the brim with much of the toxic masculinity we often see from the blokes cast on this show, thank goodness!And in all the promo clips Channel 10 has been plugging over the past week, we've seen Angie already going googly-eyed over Carlin.
'He's deep and I dig it. Wow. I can't stop smiling,' said a clearly smitten Angie as Timm walked away.
Next up was Carlin, 30, who arrived in a white tuxedo jacket, and it appeared the attraction was immediate between them.
'Hot diggity damn, he is one good-lookin' sort,' quipped Angie, while Carlin added, 'That first moment seeing her, wow, it took my breath away.'
Firefighter Jamie, 39, arrived dressed in his fireman's uniform and toting an adorable puppy.
But while Jamie had hoped the puppy combined with the uniform would be a winning combination, Angie appeared more smitten with the dog.
'I'm sorry, my head is absolutely gone. Like, I'm so... I can't think of anything else when dogs are around. This is also probably why I'm single,' she confessed.
Matt, 27, brought along a bicycle, before explaining to Angie he was a BMX stunt rider from the Gold Coast.
Many of her suitors arrived bearing gifts, ranging from a baby crocodile to a box full of beer, and a meat pie.
'I don't eat... meat,' confessed Angie, before gesturing towards the pie's pastry. 'I also am very allergic to this area. I'm coeliac.'
'I'm still married!' Bachelorette Angie Kent is left SPEECHLESS as contestant Carlin Sterritt admits his divorce hasn't been finalised with his wife
Carlin dropped a bombshell on Thursday's episode of The Bachelorette, revealing he's actually married. After landing a 24-hour date with Angie Kent, Carlin, made the revelation.
Meanwhile, Jess arrived dressed in a royal cape and carrying a throne, prompting Angie to quip, 'Holy s---. He's got a chair and he's got a cape on.'
He then handed Angie a key to his apartment, with Angie asking him if he was being serious.
'But I'm not going to tell you the address right now because you're going to have to work for it,' he told her.
Angie then asked the local politician if he was 'serious about love' or if he was just trying to win the next local election.
'It's like watching Titanic sink,' she laughed, as she watched Jess later struggle to squeeze his throne through the door of the mansion.
In a twist, Angie's brother Brad arrived, prompting the Bachelorette to burst into tears after spotting him making his way down the path.
'Oh, I'm so excited to see you! I'm being a baby,' she said in between tears.
Angie's protective brother then entered the mansion under the guise of a suitor named 'Mark', with the intention of finding out which of the guys were genuine.
'I want you to go in there and give me any sort of insight that you feel. Don't always think with your head, think with your heart and your gut,' Angie instructed him.
'Kind of go in there and suss out the goodies from the baddies.'
