Cr Glasgow insisted his behaviour was appropriate.

Cr Seymour said he didn't blame the Noosa mayor for asking for Glasgow's resignation.

As for Jess, he was extremely apologetic in a series of interviews this morning and said his hands hadn't stopped shaking since he saw the episode go to air last night.

The complaints will be investigated as a "breach of the trust placed in the Councillor on the basis of his statutory responsibility to provide high-quality leadership to the local government and the community", the OIA statement read.

'What is wrong with you?'

"It was not my intention to bring the Noosa Council or Noosa people into disrepute". She then sent him home.

Cr Wellington said he watched the program with his wife and he was, "totally appalled, as was my wife, and I'm sure most women watching the program would have been appalled".

"I'm naturally a little bit of a flirtatious guy [but] I'm truly sorry".

He said as a "first timer" on reality TV he had no idea his quest to find love would come to this. "I am truly, truly sorry".

Cr Glasgow said he was just "making drama and entertainment" to get ratings.

"This is one day of filming, this is entertainment, reality TV", he said.

"I in no way carry myself this way in my everyday life".

During Thursday night's episode, Glasgow made rude comments and gestures towards Bachelorette star Angie Kent during a photoshoot.

"I've kissed plenty of girls and they've turned their heads before; I'm used to it". "I don't wish him any harm or hate".

Hear him justify why below.

After the first episode, Wellington referred Glasgow to Queensland's office of the independent assessor for a potential breach of the code of conduct for councillors.

Cr Wellington said Cr Glasgow was not representing Noosa Council on the program, although he was aware that his occupation as a councillor was frequently referred to on the show.

When it screened, Ms Kent was seen to pull Cr Glasgow aside to tell him on national television: "You should never sexualise a woman".

"Whilst I do not have the legal authority to remove a sitting councillor, he has arguably brought the Council into disrepute and undermined the good reputation of our Shire".
