The Noosa Mayor Has Called For The Bachelorette's Jess To Resign
Last night's The Bachelorette was epic for a great many reasons.
About half of them directly attributed to this:
And the other? A take down.
After two eps of shady behaviour (and that's putting it lightly), Angie told Jess Glasgow - a Noosa-based city councillor - she didn't trust him and that he had to leave.
It was glorious (for her, and for us at home).
For Jess? Not so much.
Since his exit, the Mayor of Noosa, Tony Wellington, has come out, revealing they weren't aware of Jess' involvement on the series nor is he happy with Jess' presentation.
Speaking to Nova's Fitzy & Wippa, Tony labelled Jess' behaviour as "misogynistic" and "not on".
"He certainly wasn't acting on behalf of Noosa council but referenced his role on Noosa council which he shouldn't have done," he told Nova, adding that Jess had "conflated" his role.
"He is a councillor on the Noosa council, as such, he is not an employee and cannot be fired," he explained adding that despite this he didn't see "a future on the council" for Jess.
"I told him that my recommendation was that he resign from his position as councillor on Noosa council."
Tony added that he was up until 1am responding to complaints via text message, and that speaking with Jess he learned the one-time reality TV contestant was "under the belief he can brave it out."
"He thinks it's not as dramatic as some of the reactions I'm receiving."
