Just all the clues that Carlin (and his face) win Angie's heart on The Bachelorette.

Australia has a new boyfriend and his name is Carlin.

We’ve only just met, but we already know it’s going to be serious.

The 30-year-old fitness trainer from NSW is talented, kind, rocks a white suit and… we really like his face.

After being introduced to bachelorette Angie on last night's premiere, and serenading her in what should've been a cringe worthy moment but was actually... endearing, Angie too decided she would like Carlin to be her boyfriend.

But she still has to date 17 other dudes because 1. contracts and 2. Osher already spent his budget on helicopters and unnecessary games.

It's hard for her. But we're convinced Carlin will be the one standing with her at the end, and we have evidence.

Here are the clues that Carlin is the winner of The Bachelorette:

1. His face.

3. Betting agencies say so.

As Channel 10 announced The Bachelorette Australia 2019 contestants on Sunday, betting company Sportsbet listed the names, and Carlin shot to the top within hours.

Whiiiich you may say is dubious reasoning to declare him an early favourite prior to the show going to air and yes, you would perhaps be right. BUT. The Sportsbet odds have an impeccable record for predicting who will win the Bachelorette or Bachelor. It had a wee slip up for the Honey Badgers' season but... that's entirely Nick's fault.


Carlin has the shortest odds at 1.33 and look, that's something.

TAB also has Carlin at the shortest odds at 1.15... but it also has Kmart Zac Efron as the second most likely winner and... no.

4. Their single date clearly goes well... because then he goes on another date.

Carlin made a great first impression, winning the 24 hours rose to tee up a day-long date with Angie.

On the first single date, the pair go glamping and judging from paparazzi photos (which you can see here) which show them hand in hand and enjoying a chat by a ~romantic~ fire, it was a big success. Even if 10's promo about a big 'bombshell' try and make us think otherwise.

BTW, WE'RE CALLING IT: The 'bombshell' is that he was previously married... as mentioned here in this Insta post from March.


Then other pap photos (here) show Carlin, already with a rose pinned to his shirt, on the first group date.

Both dates take place somewhere rural so... is it possible Carlin and Angie arrive together after their single date? Hmm.

5. He's got the sibling seal of approval.

Angie clearly values the opinion of her brother Brad. So much so, she got him to pose as a bachelor during the first cocktail party and then give her the goss.

After enduring hours of hearing men talk about how hot his sister was, Brad named Carlin as one of the genuine men he liked.

6. His... face.
