Whos is the Bachelorette frontrunner forced to quit show?

A "Bachelorette insider" has revealed one of Angie Kent's suitors will reportedly quit the show in an upcoming episode after a family member died during filming.

According to the Daily Mail, it's one of the "frontrunners" vying for Angie Kent's heart who leaves before the finale, after his grandmother passed away.

According the publication's source, a producer told the contestant the sad family news off camera in July, and after telling Angie of his decision to leave, flew home.

It is unclear whether the emotional conversation will be aired in an upcoming episode.

"The news sent shockwaves through the show, but everybody understood and respected his decision to go and be with his family," the insider told Daily Mail Australia.

Each season, Bachelorette contestants are cut off from the outside world, with no contact with their friends and families at home.

Instead, a handful of their nearest and dearest are given a contact person at Warner Bros Australia in case of an emergency.

The rumoured departure follows a series of unexpected exits this season; notably in episode two, which saw Noosa politician Jess Glasgow booted off after his "sleazy" behaviour and Warwick Adams, who stormed off the set after being forced to dress up in a chicken suit.
