“Brad told Angie he wouldn’t approve if she picked Timm,” a source claims.
“It came as a shock but family comes first for Angie, so she ends up taking his advice. She trusts her brother knows what’s best for her.”
Brad took an instant dislike to Timm when he entered the Bachelorette mansion as the ‘undercover brother’.
“Timm was saying some inappropriate things about Angie during the first cocktail party,” one contestant reveals.
“Even though Timm was just being Timm and joking around, they probably weren’t the type of things you would want to say in front of your girlfriend’s brother.”
When it was revealed that Brad wasn’t a contestant and was, in fact, Angie’s older sibling, Timm began ‘freaking out’
“He knew he had talked badly about Angie and everyone from the start,” the contestant explains. “He was stressing and telling the boys, ‘I’m done here, lads’.”
However, with producers keen to keep the loveable larrikin on the show, New Idea claims his comments were quickly swept under the carpet.
“They told Brad he had to ignore it for now and that they would give him a chance to spill the beans to Angie later on and confront Timm if he made it to home visits,” a source explains.
“So, when they come face-to-face for the first time, it’s super awkward. He didn’t expect Timm to make it until the end.”
The shocking news from Brad is said to have left Angie so devastated, she starts to question whether Timm is really the one.
