Emotional backlash over Angie’s decision
Angie Kent's final decision has collectively crushed a nation's heart.
It was handsome personal trainer Carlin Sterritt (who Angie had earlier described as a cavoodle) standing next to her at the end, with the bubbly reality star letting fireproofer Timm Hanly go despite describing him as her "soulmate".
And while Angie and Carlin sealed their new relationship with a kiss in the scenic surrounds of Byron Bay, Australia, having fallen in love with quirky jokester Timm, was not happy about it at all.
Throughout finale week - from Wednesday night's emotional rose ceremony that ended with "Aussie Dog Guy" Ryan Anderson's tearful departure, to the final emotional decision - Angie was riddled with fear about "making the wrong decision".
"I feel like my heart's broken into two," she said, torn between Timm, the man who made her laugh, and Carlin, the man who's "fought" for her from the beginning.
"I'm scared I'm gonna make the wrong decision," she continued to tell the camera.
In Australia's eyes, she did.
Here's how the nation reacted to Angie dumping our Bachelorette boyfriend:
Carlin has as much personality as a cardboard cutout. What a terrible choice. He’s Cleary putting it on. #BacheloretteAU— Scott Gumbleton (@scottgumbleton) November 14, 2019
how is she going to go to Byron and NOT pick Timm who looks like he was literally harvested from Byron Bay #bacheloretteau— cat (@yagirlcat1) November 14, 2019
Angie calling Timm her soul mate and dumpling him is really crushing. God who does that #BacheloretteAU— Dame Kittness (@SoftKittyWarm) November 14, 2019
