Bachelorette’s Carlin Sterritt hits back at claims he used romance with Angie Kent to get famous

The Bachelorette’s Carlin Sterritt has once again hit back at claims his ill-fated romance with Angie Kent was a ploy to get famous. 

Carlin has consistently maintained that his relationship with ex Angie was not a ‘showmance’, despite being exposed as a ‘secret actor’ on the dating show.

On Wednesday, the 32-year-old responded directly to a fan who made a sarcastic comment about his new Christmas ad campaign for Harvey Norman.

When the catalogue was published on Instagram by the So Dramatic podcast, a fan wrote: ‘I WeNT oN FOr LoVE.’ 

Carlin was not willing to let the snide comment go unnoticed, and responded: ‘I went on for the adventure and found love, there’s a difference.’      

‘I worked with Harvey Norman on the previous Christmas catalog too. Just FYI,’ he said of his modelling gigs before his rise to TV fame.

The Bachelorette couple Angie and Carlin announced their split in early July, following weeks of speculation they had quietly called it quits.

In September, Carlin broke his silence on hurtful rumours that their entire relationship was a carefully orchestrated ‘showmance’.

Carlin, whose acting credits resurfaced while he was on the dating show last year, said on Beyond the White Room that his intentions were always genuine.

‘People give those of us who have done acting and stuff in the past such backlash, but we’re genuinely putting ourselves out there,’ Carlin told host Sophie Budack. 

He said he ‘was constantly bombarded with people’s opinions’ about his character and intentions while The Bachelorette was airing on TV.

‘This show, it’s you, you’re putting yourself out there… I’m not portraying a character,’ Carlin said, responding to critics who accused him of being ‘fake’.

Carlin confessed that he found it extremely hard being judged on social media because he really was putting his heart on the line.

‘I’m not being judged on a character I am portraying; I am being judged on me and my character, and that was challenging,’ he said. 

Before making his debut on The Bachelorette, Carlin removed ‘actor’ from his Instagram bio and also deleted his Facebook fan page and StarNow profile.

He had previously featured in campaigns for menswear brand Tramps The Store, and also appeared in short films like Red Zone, Divided and Graveyard Shift.

Furthermore, he had a lead role in the 2018 Australian drama Out of the Woods, which appears to have never been officially released.

He failed to mention his acting career to Angie on the show, and she didn’t find out until his brother warned her during hometown week that Carlin could be using the show as a career stepping stone. 

It was a devastating blow for Angie, who had previously been warned about Carlin’s secret by ousted contestant Jamie Doran. 

Carlin has now moved on with a new girlfriend, while it’s believed Angie remains single.
