The Bachelorette: Jess Glasgow ‘under investigation for breach of conduct’ after ‘creepy’ behaviour

Noosa councillor Jess Glasgow is under investigation for breach of conduct following his controversial appearance on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette.

Mayor Tony Wellington has issued a statement saying that Glasgow’s behaviour on the show does not reflect Noosa Council or the town’s community values.

In a trailer for Thursday’s episode, Glasgow makes a lewd remark to Kent about his ‘wandering fingers’. Sources have also told Daily Mail Australia that his antics behind the scenes left the other contestants ‘baffled’.

In a statement on Thursday, Mr Wellington said that Glasgow ‘did not seek approval’ to be a contestant on the show.  

He added that Glasgow’s appearance on The Bachelorette is a potential breach of the Councillor’s Code of Conduct and the matter will be referred to the Office of the Independent Assessor.

Mr Wellington made it clear that Glasgow, who frequently boasted about being a local politician on the show, ‘was not representing Noosa Council’.

During Wednesday’s episode, Glasgow introduced himself to Kent as a councillor who ‘worked in local politics in Noosa’ under the Mayor.  

Later in the episode, he was involved in a confrontation with co-star Jamie Doran, whom he accused of spreading lies about him.

Glasgow will find himself at the centre of controversy again on Thursday, with a trailer hinting that he behaves inappropriately during a group date.

‘Don’t mind me if I get some wandering fingers!’ a smiling Glasgow says to Kent the trailer. 

Kent later confronts him over his behaviour, saying: ‘When a man can’t accept and respect what I am putting down, I’d rather be single for the rest of my life.’

It’s believed Glasgow is eliminated at the end of Thursday’s episode.

Daily Mail Australia can also reveal the 37-year-old local politician was a troublemaker when the cameras weren’t rolling. 

A well-placed insider claimed Glasgow ‘kept flirting’ with a female crew member, which the other contestants disapproved of. 

The source said: ‘All the boys were so baffled that he seemed more interested in her than Angie, but he said it was just his sense of humour and he was joking.’

Good riddance! It's believed Glasgow is eliminated at the end of Thursday's episode

Meanwhile, fans have labeled Glasgow ‘creepy’ because of his lewd comment in the trailer about having ‘wandering fingers’.

‘Jess is like that creepy uncle that makes inappropriate comments at you during family events,’ tweeted one viewer.

Another wrote: ‘Oh no, creepy wink! Jess can leave now please.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.
