The Bachelorette may only be two episodes in, but the show is already exploding with drama on and off the screen and we have to ask who the hell did the casting on this thing?
We need to have a chat...
Yep, Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal that another contestant is and was married, the whole time.
No not Carlin, unbelievably there is another married contestant.
Purple jacket-wearing Adam Sellars is still legally married to his ex-wife, making a grand total of two already-married contestants included in this year’s show.
Family man Adam was open about his two kids on the show from the start, but made no mention of an ongoing marriage with his ex.
A source close to Adam and his wife confirmed the pair were still legally wed while the filming was underway.
“Adam Sellars is still married to the mother of his two children Sarah-Rose Sellars,” the source told Yahoo Lifestyle.
“It was mentally over for them ages ago,” the source continues, explaining for the sake of their children the pair tried and failed, to stick it out.
Married in 2009, the pair separated in 2017 but remain married in the eyes of the law.
“They split because they were just two different people who didn’t get along and were trying to flog a dead horse for the sake of the kids, but it was becoming toxic so they cut their losses,” the source told Yahoo Lifestyle.
On Facebook the contestant’s legal wife Sarah is still listed as ‘married’ to Adam.
The source says however, the pair are ‘not on good terms’.
Drama on top of drama for Angie Kent
Regardless, it’s another bump in the road for Bachelorette Angie Kent who has only been handing out roses for two days and already weathered more dramas than most Bachelorettes deal with in eight weeks.
On top of the revelations around Adama, bombshell photos reveal that ‘actor and extra’ Ciarran Stott used to work as an exotic dancer in Darwin’s gay nightclubs, another detail omitted from the show and presumably Angie.
Now just to stoke this raging blaze, New Idea have shared an old video showing the contestant sniffing an unidentified substance from another man’s naked bottom, then giving the camera a thumbs up.
The contestant has not yet made any mention of his past as a dancer and the confronting footage has sent shock waves through the fans of the series.
Another tied up suitor
Unbelievably the drama does not stop at one married contestant and one exposed in compromising footage because Angie discovered last night that another contestant, a clear favourite Carlin, is also still married.
Not that she knew about Josh, yet.
Frontrunner Carlin Sterritt dropped a huge bombshell on Thursday night’s episode, revealing to Angie that he is, in fact, not single.
The 30-year-old fitness trainer is actually married - and has been for three years, as he revealed to Angie after the star of the series gifted him a 24-hour date with the new yellow rose.
“I’m the kinda guy who wants to be open and transparent,” he said to the ex-Gogglebox star, before adding, “I am… married.”
So two married men in two days, and it doesn’t stop there.
‘Vile’ ‘sexist’ comments see one contestant booted
As if this lady hasn’t been through enough on the show just one week in - I mean who is doing the casting - she spent her second cocktail party dressing down, then kicking out a man accused of sexist comment both to Angie and female crew members.
Fans were left cheering after contestant Jess Glasgow, a local councillor in Noosa and former contestant, was axed for his inappropriate behaviour, and now faces calls for resignation from his real-life bosses over the incident.
The prompt eviction came after he made sexist remarks to Angie during a group photoshoot, before calling her a ‘b**ch’ in front of the men trying to win her heart.
Other comments included admitting he would have ‘laid one on’ Angie if near her, and remarking another contestant should “just slip the tongue in” during a photoshoot - remarks which Jess’ boss, the Mayor of Noosa, has branded “offensive, crude and misogynistic”.
The councillor has confirmed he will not be stepping down from his position, and Angie herself has come out asking fans not to ‘online bully’ the disgraced contestant.
