    A former Bachelorette contestant who was torn to shreds by Angie Kent for his sleazy behaviour on the dating show in 2019 has reacted to her drink-driving offence.

    Former Noosa councillor Jess Glasgow said he had ‘no sympathy’ for Angie, who pleaded guilty on Wednesday to mid-range drink driving, and said her illegal actions were ‘almost as bad as what I did’.

    Angie, 31, had infamously made an example of Jess two years ago after he acted inappropriately towards her and female crew members on The Bachelorette, calling him out for his sexism and sending him home in disgrace.

    Jess told Daily Mail Australia on Friday: ‘Look at what she’s doing, it’s almost as bad as what I did; however, I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not like she does.’

    ‘We all make mistakes [and] I hope she learns from it, but she doesn’t get any sympathy from me,’ he added.

    Angie, 31, appeared at Sydney’s Downing Centre Court on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to a mid-range drink-driving charge.

    She’d been caught over the limit with a blood-alcohol level of 0.081 during a random breath test in Pyrmont on October 3.

    Angie had claimed she’d only had two drinks on an empty stomach while getting ready for a fully-vaccinated picnic.

    She received a four-month driving ban and was fined $1,200, as well as ordered to participate in an interlock program for 12 months.

    A remorseful Angie told The Daily Telegraph on Thursday: ‘Let me be the lesson.

    ‘If you think you can have two drinks and drive, think again, because it is totally not worth the lapse of judgment. 

    ‘I am so grateful that I didn’t hurt anybody and I will never have two drinks and drive again.’

    Jess was one of the 20 men vying for Angie’s heart during season five The Bachelorette in 2019.

    But he was booted out after his sexist behaviour was brought to her attention.

    During a photo shoot group date, Jess was dressed as a horse and Angie was instructed to sit on his back.

    ‘Don’t mind if I get some wandering fingers, alright?’ he told her, before joking he’d be ‘the first person she gets to ride’.

    He then pretended to bite and lick her bottom as she stood beside him, completely oblivious to what he was doing.

    Angie asked Jess to leave in episode two, after he made inappropriate remarks towards her and female crew members.

    He told 2DayFM earlier this year his portrayal as a ‘creep’ on the Channel 10 dating show resulted in death threats against his family.

    When asked if he was considering legal options, he said he had engaged ‘a law team, don’t worry’.

    In March 2021, Jess was fined $4,000 following an investigation by the Councillor Conduct Tribunal into his behaviour on the program.
