Cr Kent later apologised for his behaviour.

"I am calling on Cr Jess Glasgow to resign immediately from his role as Councillor of Noosa", Wellington said.

He is also under investigation for a potential breach of conduct as a result of his behaviour on the dating show.

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

'What is wrong with you?'

The mayor does not have the power to remove a sitting councillor.

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

"I'm in my own right to make my decision if I'm resigning or not and I'm not resigning", Cr Glasgow said.

Today, Cr Glasgow in the Sunshine Coast Daily claimed he had the Mayor's "approval and support".

Cr Glasgow defended himself stating the representation of his on-screen self was not him.

"That's Tony's job to say that", Cr Glasgow said.

"He does realise but doesn't think it's as dramatic as some of the reactions I'm receiving".

"I had the opportunity to find the future mother of my children on national TV and that's really what I thought it was about".

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

"My actions were not good I agree with that, there's no explanation for what I did".

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

"This is not me, this is one day of filming".

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

Cr Glasgow told HIT105 this morning he refused to resign but admitted he made a "mistake". "I've kissed plenty of girls and they've turned their heads before; I'm used to it".

Angie Kent confronted Jess Glasgow about his behaviour.

Noosa councillor and Bachelorette Australia contestant Jess Glasgow.

"I believe that I haven't breached that conduct because I know exactly what I was there to do and I didn't intend to bring the council into disrepute".

Macquarie University media professor and NRL gender adviser Catharine Lumby has worked with Channel Ten on sexual harassment policies for their reality TV programs in the past.

"The temptation always with reality TV is, when someone does something appalling, they rush to get it to air because it will cause debate and help boost the ratings".

"It was kind of lovely to watch because I didn't see how much the guys had been affected by Jess's behaviour", she said, sharing both Carlin and Scot had approached her about the entire situation.

But she said the way the other male contestants reacted to the comments was positive. He signed up to a reality show and I can't control what anyone else says or does about the matter. I don't see that he has a future on his council.
