But before the show aired, Cr Glasgow was already in hot water with the Noosa council, with it seeking an investigation into an alleged breach of a code of conduct.

Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington told Nova FM: "That sort of offensive, crude misogynistic behaviour is just not on".

Wellington does not have the legal authority to fire him, nor does the OIA; that power resides with the Minister for Local Government.

"I got told to jump on your back as part of the photoshoot".

Her response was pretty brutal: "Jesus, what's wrong with you".

When told Angie would confront him about his behaviour, Glasgow said, "Bring it on, bitch".

"I won't resign because I still hold the utmost respect for Noosa and its people".

"Obviously I'm not proud of what I did, I'm a first timer at this reality TV thing."

"You made me feel very uncomfortable at the photoshoot".

'I kind of wanted to show my good side, but the worst side of me was shown.

Cr Glasgow apologised publicly for his behaviour but maintained it was all in the name of reality TV.

He didn't help himself when he told another contestant: "I would have just grabbed that sweetie and laid one on her".

He also spoke of kissing "plenty of girls" who have "turned their heads" at his advances as well as his "wandering fingers" in a two-day stint in which fellow suitors said he was a "sleaze" and a "creep". "I'm used to it".

Hear him justify why below.

"The behaviour evidence by Cr Glasgow was vile, was reprehensible and it was thoroughly misogynistic".

In this week's Mumbrellacast, editor Vivienne Kelly sits down with this year's Bachelorette Angie Kent to chat about the transition from Goggleboxer to reality TV mainstay. "No, this isn't me", he said.

But she said the way the other male contestants reacted to the comments was positive.

Bachelorette Angie didn't want a bar of it either and booted him off the show as soon as she became aware of the situation.

"But I think increasingly men stand up and call out sexual harassment when they see it".
