Poor Jackson Garlick had a pretty disastrous entry into The Bachelorette, offering a meat pie to coeliac and vegetarian Angie Kent.
He recovered pretty well though, earning himself a single date early on and becoming a bit of a dark horse in the competition.
Making it to the top four, a.k.a the hometown dates, Jackson wanted to redeem that first meeting by making her a special gluten-free, vegan option (unfortunately unavailable for purchase, I asked, soz!)
Mamamia’s super fan met Angie Kent and it was everything. Post continues below video.
He gained points for effort and deliciousness, but maybe lost a few for his focus on pastry over feelings.
Speaking to Mamamia, the 25-year-old psychology student and heir to a pie empire said he was not surprised to be left standing without a rose at the end of last night’s episode. He’d felt uneasy ever since his final conversation with Angie, where he struggled to express how he felt about her.
“I kind of did expect it, even thought I was gutted,” he said.
“I was anticipating going home because I could just tell with Angie that she hadn’t received enough from me about how I felt. The other hometowns were just as rocky, but there was some massive doubt in my mind and I’m a realist.”
