Bachelorette Angie Kent on marriage plans with winner

  Bachelorette Angie Kent on marriage plans with winner Angie Kent confirms to TV WEEK that, after a series of failed relationships, she’s found love on the hit reality show. Angie Kent isn't one for clichés. In fact, when we sit down to talk to the former Gogglebox Australia star about becoming the Bachelorette in the new season of The Bachelorette Australia, she refuses to refer to it by the J-word: journey."The word 'journey' is so overused," the 29-year-old tells TV WEEK with a laugh. "Every time I hear it, I hate it.

The fifth season of The Bachelorette Australia premiered on Network 10 on Wednesday, 9 October 2019. The season features Angie Kent , a 29-year-old marketing and production assistant and former Gogglebox Australia star from Sydney, courting 21 men.

All expenses paid? The Bachelorette ' s Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt enjoy a luxury holiday in Vietnam but it all seems like one big advertisement.

Angie, 29, grew up on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, with her mother, Jane, father, Markos, and younger brothers Josh and Brad.

She spent much of her childhood with her grandparents – her younger brother Josh was sick as a child, so her mother would often be at the hospital, while her dad would be working.

The star suffered a painful blow last year when she lost her beloved grandmother, Nanny Fae.

"So much has changed since then," Angie reflects, teary-eyed. "I've been quite emotional this morning. I think she's done all of this. It's wild. As soon as she passed, everything fell into place. She's just with me.

"She sent me into the jungle because I needed that. And she set up this [The Bachelorette Australia]. You'll have to wait to see what she found me at the end."

Knowing that everything will fall into place and that her grandmother is watching over her plays a huge part in Angie's view on marriage and children.

Before The Bachelorette Australia, she told TV WEEK she wasn't a "timeline sort of girl" and that hasn't changed – despite now being in a happy relationship.

"I'm more open to it [marriage and kids], but I'm not like, 'I want to get married next year and have kids' now that I've gone through this," she explains.

Of course, Angie's got another very special person looking over her on The Bachelorette Australia. Her brother, Brad, will actually be appearing on the show amid the contestants in a bid to "expose the poison apples" for his sister.
