Controversial Bachelorette contestant under investigation over his appearance on the show

If you watched the premiere of The Bachelorette Australia last night, then I’m pretty sure you would already be well aware of Jess Glasgow…

The Noosa Councillor caused quite a stir with some controversial comments on the Channel 10 dating show on Wednesday night, but it turns out he might be in even more strife in real life.

The politician is being investigated for an alleged breach of conduct following his appearance on the reality show.


Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington confirmed the news in a statement on Thursday, revealing Cr Glasgow’s behaviour on the episode was “not reflective of the Noosa community’s values.”

He also said Glasgow did not seek approval to appear on the television program.

“Cr Glasgow did not seek approval from myself and I only found out about his involvement after the show had been recorded,” Mayor Wellington said.

It’s understood the controversial contestant, dubbed this season’s “villain” will be referred to the Office of the Independant Assessor for an alleged breach of the Councillor’s code of conduct.

It comes after a preview of tonight’s Bachelortte Australia episode shows another awkward exchange between him and Angie.

“Don’t mind me if I get some wandering fingers all right?” Glasgow can be heard telling the former Gogglebox star.
