Former Bachelorette star Angie Kent has said producers of the show 'stitched her up' by casting not-so-great men for her season in 2019.

The 31-year-old, who is pansexual, has revealed she didn't know she could have asked to have both men and women on the show and believes producers chose "deeply average men" for her.

Speaking to TV Week, Angie said she would have loved the option to have men and women like Brooke Blurton has this year on the show.

"I can't wait to watch Brooke being our first Indigenous and bisexual Bachelorette," Angie told the publication. "I wish I knew [mixed gender contestants] was an option because I'm pansexual."

"I feel like I got stitched up with a bunch of deeply average blokes. Just kidding!" she added.

Angie ended up choosing personal trainer Carlin Sterritt as her winning guy with the pair splitting in 2020, soon after the pandemic kicked off.

The reality star recently shared on her podcast Two Girls, One Pod that she'd split with a secret boyfriend.

While she did not reveal his identity, sources have claimed to the Daily Mail that it was Australian Ninja Warrior star Matt Filippi, 34.

The pair both live on Queensland's Sunshine Coast and began dating earlier this year, deciding it was best to keep it a secret. However, they soon realised their relationship wasn't going to work long-term.

"I wanted a baby and he didn't," Angie told her co-host Yvie Jones. 

Sources told Daily Mail that Matt, who is already a father to daughter Zarlie, was "pretty vocal" about not wanting more children.
