Is anyone watching this? I'm loving how real and not very PC Angie is. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds :)

Yes! I'm watching and loving it so far!
I didn't think I'd love a Bachelorette more than Sophie but I do 😊

I’m in. I shouldn’t be. But I am.

Hmm there are some interesting bachelors in there too...

I love that her brother is in there and hopefully he is able to help her sort the stunt casts from the real contenders.

I'll give it a go, I love Angie.

I do hate seeing the guys with their macho posturing though.

What is going on with fire fighter dude? Crying then cocky!!

Not a fan of the politician.

Only watching because of Angie, so not a Bachelor expert but are some of these actors ? That firefighter is just weird!

I am sure I recognise Carlin from an ad. Google tells me that he is an aspiring actor.

It's a bit too early for tears an hour or 2 into the show.

I'm all for men showing emotions but that seems extreme.

Someone put a Joffrey meme on Facebook for the throne guy. If you watch Game of thrones you'll see why.

What a tosser.

Unfortunately that's his emotions controlling him. I hope he comes out of the experience stronger.

24 hours with one person sounds like hell lol..the yellow (or on Facebook the shag ) rose..

I get the feeling the firefighter was a bit drunk.

He looks a little under the weather.
White jacket Carlin or Timm are my standouts currently.

Eta Carlin's name

I am a little smitten by Carlin/ White Jacket! And I think Tim suits her. There are a few who appear to be a good match for her actually, I’m feeling hopeful!

They never think of me and pick anyone I find attractive.  How selfish of them!

Timm was funny, great narrator.

Pity her brother was only there for a few hours.

Based on the first night introductions, my top 3 picks are Carlin, Timm and Matt (bmx dude).

Jess (Noosa politician) is a tosser.

Jamie (firefighter) is already way too attached - reminds a bit of Emma from the Bachelor last season.

I find it interesting that the majority of the bachelors are from Qld and NSW.  I wonder if that was a stipulation by Angie.

ETA:  Carlin's bombshell tonight.  I wonder if he has a child?

In real life, a relationship is more likely to succeed if you are within close proximity of each other. Not to say that a long distance relationship can't work, but let's be honest, it's a lot easier to date someone if they are only an hour or so away than if they are on the other side of the country.

Not too many bachelors/bachelorettes have picked people who live on the other side of the country to them.

Long distance can be hard. I tried years ago and just couldn't do it unfortunately.

Good that they thought of that if it was intentional.

#21 Beancat

the firefighter was weird....like scary psycho weird.  Run Angie run, very fast away from this man

#22 MooGuru

I wonder what Jess's motivation was for going on the show. It's an interesting decision for a politician who was approached by producers.

I love it so far. Firefighter is too intense, back off dude. He reminds me of that guy who was obsessed with Ali last year and got really intense / controlling almost.

Sunflower guy seems really nice and white jacket guy is pretty hot.

Poli in the cape is a w*n*er and needs to go, but I think he's only there because they told her to keep him - she didn't look pleased giving him the rose. Even my 6 year old told me she didn't think that Angie wanted to give him a rose because she looked angry haha.

#24 Sandra

Posted 10 October 2019 - 12:18 PM

I wanted the Firefighter and the weird Poli to go, but keep the puppy!

#25 Chelli

Posted 10 October 2019 - 07:19 PM

They are really making the Firefighter look creepy. I feel that she needs to get rid of him quickly and not give him any false hope.

The embarrassment of Noosa is doing an awesome job of making an absolute goose of himself. What. A. Tosser.

Carlin and Timm are my favourites.
