Glenn Told Us His Twin Brother Has Been Giving Him Sh-- Over His Lack Of Airtime On ‘The Bachelorette’
We might not have seen much of Glenn Smith during his time on 'The Bachelorette' but his twin brother has been loving the limelight.
Speaking to 10 daily over the phone after Angie Kent did not give him a rose at the last ceremony, Glenn said it's "been exciting watching it all back" on TV, even if his twin Neil has been teasing him the whole time.
"He’s loving it more than me, to be honest -- he’s been enjoying every moment, digging in at me," Glenn said, adding that his "lack of airtime" was really tickling his sibling's funny bone.
The business owner and refrigeration mechanic from Perth might not have been on screen as much as Ciarran, Timm or Jamie -- but his appearance on 'The Bachelorette' created quite the buzz around Neil.
"Neil loves the attention, he gets a bit of attention from the boys and he takes it all in his stride," Glenn told 10 daily.
"Neil was joking that he’s been talked about more than I have," he chuckled.
It's clear that while Glenn applied to the show for the right reasons, he and Angie both sensed that there probably wasn't a relationship in their future.
"I think early on there probably wasn’t anything there, there was no initial spark and obviously I’d been there for a little bit and nothing really grew from there," Glenn told 10 daily.
"I wasn’t surprised, I was pretty comfortable that there wasn’t anything there," he said.
"She kept me around long enough to try and explore that but I think, the unspoken, mutual... when you are chatting, you both know the spark isn’t there. I was pretty comfortable in going when I did," he added.
We just wish that Glenn had have stuck around long enough so we could hear more of his life story -- including the time he saved someone's life in Costa Rica.
He told 10 daily that while travelling a couple of years ago, he headed out for a surf at 6 am in a small fishing village and soon realised he could hear people yelling and waving from the shore.
"There were massive rips and big surf and I just saw this head bobbing up and down and coming back up and I thought, ‘This person is going to drown'.
"So I caught a wave in and, panic stations. They weren’t swimming and by the time I got over there, they’d completely gone under the water and submerged," he added.
Glenn managed to lift the man onto his board and get him to the shore and on the way to hospital.
"He was okay but it was pretty scary because if I hadn’t been there, he was gone, he couldn't’ swim."
Glenn explained that he's always had a "good perspective on life" and knows that "you've just got to enjoy it for what it is".
"You’ve got to take opportunities in life because you’ll never know what will happen," he said.
