Just a few days after Channel Ten announced the all-star cast of their brand new reality show The Challenge Australia, former Bachelorette Angie Kent has shared her honest opinions on the competitors.
The show, which is yet to announce a premiere date, will feature a number of stars from The Bachelor franchise, including Brooke Blurton, Brittany Hockley, Konrad Bien-Stephen, Jessica Brody, Megan Marx, Kiki Morris, and Ciarran Stott.
Fans would remember that Ciarran was a frontrunner on Angie’s season of the dating show in 2019 and received a favourable edit, but caused controversy on Bachelor in Paradise the following year when he romanced and subsequently dumped both Jessica and Kiki.
Speaking on their podcast Two Girls One Pod this week, Angie and her co-host Yvie Jones admitted they were looking forward to seeing Ciarran, Jessica and Kiki reunite on the show after the “next level” drama on Bachelor In Paradise.
“That’s when Ciarran really just completely shat all over his beautiful reputation he somehow managed to create - probably thanks to me, let’s face it,” Angie remarked.
“He ruined his own future,” Yvie added. “I’ve never seen anyone ruin themselves that bad.”
‘He’s a narcissist at the end of the day’
The pair continued to call out Ciarran’s behaviour while also sharing their hopes that Jessica and Kiki both protect themselves and have a good time on the show.
“I think Kiki will be great because she'll take no prisoners,” Angie said. “I don't know her, but I reckon you wouldn't mess with her. But I love that, I reckon she's going to be great to watch.
“Hopefully they don't be the ‘pick me’ girls where they’ll be like, ‘It’s alright Ciarran that you really f**ked us over’. He’s a narcissist at the end of the day. He knows how to love bomb the s**t out of you. Great television, Ciarran. Like, you're never going to listen to this because you're a narcissist, but great television.
“He doesn’t give a s**t what I say, but he’s great. He’s a love bomber, he's addictive. He will say whatever he wants to get what he wants. So he'll win Jess and Kiki back over, but remember girls, narcissists, that’s what they do.”
‘Get revenge on national TV’
Yvie went on to share her hope that Kiki and Jessica will team up against Ciarran on The Challenge and “absolutely bollock him”.
“That would be the best TV I've ever seen,” she remarked. “To see two women who got scorned by one man come together and do their damnedest to get revenge on national TV.”
"That would be ideal, but I feel like they won’t,” Angie added. “Kiki might, I don’t think Jess would.”
“Maybe she'll rally Jess in? Who knows,” Yvie said. “Or if the producers are any good, because you know it's just so highly produced these shows, they will manufacture that and they'll start getting in those girls ears going ‘It’s time’.”
The full cast of The Challenge includes Brooke Blurton, Brittany Hockley, Konrad Bien-Stephen, Jessica Brody, Megan Marx, Kiki Morris, Ciarran Stott, Cyrell Paule, Ryan Gallagher, Jack Vidgen, Grant Crapp, Audrey Kanongar, Marley Biyendolo, Conor Curran, David Subritzky, Emily Seebohm, Brooke Jowett, Johnny Eastoe, Troy Cullen, Sugar Neekz Johnson, Billy Dib, and Suzan Mutesi.
