Viewers slam Noosa councillor's behaviour on dating show
NOOSA Councillor Jess Glasgow is trending on Twitter, but not in a good way.
The local politician is facing a wave of online backlash for his behaviour in tonight's episode of The Bachelorette, which has been labelled as 'creepy' by the show's star Angie Kent, Cr Glasgow's fellow contestants and viewers on social media.
After a series of inappropriate remarks, Cr Glasgow was booted off the show and viewers showed little sympathy for the 36-year-old, who is now under investigation for his conduct.
I called it early. I knew Jess would say - it’s just a bit of fun, not my fault if she/they can’t take a joke. Yep, Jess showing the rest of Australia he is the Donald Trump of Noosa. Classy guy. #BacheloretteAU #noosa #jessglasgow— 💧 Mon-Marsh (@mon_marsh) October 10, 2019
thank god the producers didn’t keep jess around just for entertainment value. he is an actual piece of human garbage. by far one of the worst contestants to ever be on one of these shows #BacheloretteAU— jess ✧･ﾟ: * (@infinitylwt) October 10, 2019
Guys like Jess are so infuriating.— Tanya (@tanyalcurtis) October 10, 2019
They lie, deny, play the victim.
"Don't blame me if my fingers go wandering"
Jokes about her riding him
Hits on the wait staff who are AT WORK.
Shit like this no longer flies.
NOOSA, you know what to do.#TheBacheloretteAU#BacheloretteAU
Omg, Jess is incredibly inappropriate & creepy - ladies of Australia, remember that face, stay far away from him 😡🤢 good on Carlin & Angie for calling him out! #BacheloretteAU— Josie (@Josie0412) October 10, 2019
His behaviour on the reality TV show has also brought Noosa into the spotlight:
#BacheloretteAU #noosa Cr Jess Glasgow has just brought Noosa into absolute disrepute with his disgusting behaviour towards Angie and all women. As he says, "I'm going to find love in a dirty, dingy nightclub in Noosa" Cr Glasgow soon to be ex-Cr!!!— beazle teats (@dubprofessor) October 10, 2019

Ms Kent and some of the other bachelors, in contrast, have been praised by viewers for calling out Cr Glasgow's behaviour:
I can't even find the words to express my horror and disgust regarding #Jess tonight.— Skye (@daisystreet) October 10, 2019
On the other side of the coin, I felt so proud and reassured watching the response of the other young men, and our loyal, strong, steadfast Angie. Restores the faith, it does.#BacheloretteAU
