“You can say that you’ll be fine, but when you see it, it can be quite confronting. I’m such a good communicator and he’s a great communicator that we talk about it… It’s not normal life, but this is our life right now,” she added.
“I’m okay for him to get upset and he’s okay for me to get upset. We’ve got a really good understanding with that luckily, otherwise it could make this a whole lot harder.”
Angie says her and her winner have been doing “lots of texting” and “lots of calling” and have met up a couple of times in secret, but they’re still in stage two of “Bachie bubble” where the relationship still doesn’t feel completely real.
“When you’re filming it’s just the Bachie world, you’re constantly with a producer, you can’t talk with them off camera unless someone’s around… You’re dating in front of cameramen and producers and all that, but it does become real because that’s all you know. You’re in the Bachie bubble,” Angie admits.
“So then once you’re out, that’s when it starts but still not really, because it’s once the show’s done you have a normal-ish relationship. It’s kind of navigating between filming, post-filming when you’re not together, you’re together but you’re not together, then starting your relationship properly once it’s all done.”
While she’s enjoying not rushing things, she is looking forward to stage three of their relationship. “I don’t want to rush this time because it’s so beautiful to watch it and talk about it, but yeah it’ll be nice to be normal-ish.”
