She’s arguably one of Australia’s most loved Bachelorettes, but Angie Kent has now revealed that she almost pulled out of the show during filming.

Speaking on her podcast Two Girls One Pod with her best friend and former Gogglebox co-star Yvie Jones, the 32-year-old reality TV icon opened up about the “uncomfortable” moment during her season in 2019 where she considered quitting.

The pair were discussing bachelorette parties when Yvie reminded Angie that she threw one for her during her season of the dating show.

“Oh my god, I remember I was so uncomfortable that they threw me that,” she shared. “I was like, ugh. Because then it was you or Osher [Günsberg], one of you was like, ‘Oh, and this could be the last one you'll ever have!’ or something like that.

“I got anxiety. I was like, ew, imagine if this is it?

“That sign right there should have been a sign from myself to be like, ‘You should be excited that this could be your last dating experience!’. I was like ‘Ugh’.”

The episode famously saw the then-frontrunner Ciarran Stott baring all and posing completely naked in front of the group.

The party, which Yvie herself described as “the most ostentatious bachelorette party that anyone has ever seen” on the show, also included feather boas, ‘bride to be’ badges and sashes, and penis straws.

Brooke Blurton’s shock claim

Angie’s comments come shortly after last year’s leading lady Brooke Blurton made a shocking claim about her season of The Bachelorette.

During an appearance on Two Girls One Pod earlier this month, the 27-year-old says the producers didn’t notify her about her sister’s death until two days had passed.

“My sister died post-production, literally the day that I was saying goodbye to Darvid [Garayeli] after our two or three-day rendezvous. My sister's dead and I haven't been f**king notified,” she told the hosts.

“Oh my God! I didn't know that!” Yvie exclaimed.

“And that's the reality of my world,” she continued. “They put you on this massive pedestal and you're like, 'No, like my sister's got schizophrenia, or had schizophrenia, she's got a past history of drug and alcohol substance abuse,’ and here she is passed away, and I'm saying goodbye [to Darvid] and jumping into a car to be sent to an Airbnb.

“And that's the real reality of my life and I write about that in my book ... Because I'm not what people all think, I'm much more than that. And I think that was a real struggle dealing with grief, all I wanted to do was be by myself and I couldn’t.”
