Brad Womack is THE BACHELOR…Again!

September 27, 2010 by  

Just when I thought THE BACHELOR couldn’t get any more lame….

Tonight it was revealed that Brad Womack will be picking up the roses once again as he tries for another shot at 15 minutes of fame love when THE BACHELOR kicks off its 15th season in January 2011.

Womack first appeared on THE BACHELOR in its 11th season and famously rejected both Deanna Pappas and Jennie Croft in the finale.

For the life of me I can’t figure out why Womack was asked to return. The ABC press release says something about him being a changed man who is optimistic about finding love.  Right.  The only way this guy can find love is to date 25 beautiful woman at the same time on a reality TV show?  Once again…right.

Have I said, ‘lame’? I have, oh sorry.

I know I’ve never been a fan of THE BACHELOR (I prefer THE BACHELORETTE by only a slightly better margin) but if I was a fan, I can’t say that I would be psyched to have this guy come back for another shot at landing a lady.  He had his chance and it didn’t work out.  How about we give someone else a shot at fake reality TV love?

I don’t usually like to post press releases in their entirety, but the release for this announcement was so unintentionally hilarious that it just needs to be shared.  ABC makes Womack sound like a tragic soul looking for redemption – something straight out of a Dickens novel.

Maybe I’m being too harsh. Perhaps fans of THE BACHELOR are excited to have Womack return.  Well, are you? Sound off in the comments.

As promised, the press release announcing Brad Womack as the new BACHELOR, after the break. It’s the most dramatic release…EVER! (My favorite parts are in bold for your reading pleasure.)


The Sincere, Sexy, Successful Self-Made Man Will Be the First Star of the Series to Return for a Second Chance at Love

Brad Womack – once considered by many to be the “most hated Bachelor” in the series’ history – has spent the better part of the last three years going through a radical personal transformation after the shocking finale night that changed his life forever. Now he is really ready – healthier both in body and mind – to make a genuine commitment to a relationship, as he stars in the next edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelor,” when it returns to ABC in January 2011.

Womack, 37, did the unthinkable by most fans’ standards and did not choose either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas on his finale back in November 2007. The day after it taped was the loneliest day of his life. Disappointed in himself for wasting this great opportunity, Brad kept to himself for two to three months afterwards. Unaware at the time that he really wasn’t ready to commit to a relationship and not knowing the reasons why, his fears and worries were validated when a media firestorm and viewers from across the country let him know what they were thinking. With that, he started therapy to learn what problems were confronting him. He desperately wanted to fix whatever it was that wasn’t allowing him to let people into his life.

For the last three years he has undergone intensive therapy, looking at who he was in a quite painful journey of self-awareness. In the meantime, he put his head down and worked – buying and selling three companies and building one from the ground up. And although he has dated during this time, he hasn’t had a serious relationship. Adding to his sense of urgency are his two brothers: Chad, his twin, is not only married now but has a daughter; and Wes, his younger brother, who also is married, now has a little boy and girl. Brad is the last one without a wife or family.

Brad is convinced he is a better person in many ways than he was in 2007. Get ready to see a changed, revitalized man who is still optimistic and confident about finding love on “The Bachelor.” He is more ready than ever to find a wife and start a family.

Currently residing in Austin, Texas, Brad had an early plan to make his mark on the world and, at 19, left Texas State University (known then as Southwest Texas State) after one year of college to work in oil fields across the country to save up money. His eight-year odyssey took him all over Texas and then to Louisiana, North Dakota and California.

After working diligently in the oil fields, he got into bartending with his twin brother, Chad. Some eight months of tending bar later, he had enough money saved to finance the purchase of his first drinking establishment with his brothers in 2001, when he was just 28.

However Brad has had to overcome some obstacles on his way to his booming business career. Born in Atlanta, his family stayed there until he was 12 years old, and then the family moved to Livingston, Texas, where he went to high school. Growing up in a single-parent home, his challenging days as a youngster helped to instill in him a good work ethic, the importance of a stable family and the ability to be a good provider. Not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he is appreciative of what he has accomplished on his own. These strong values, coupled with great looks and undeniable sex appeal, make him the perfect catch.

    This show needs to end if they are reduced to recycling the Bachelors! How lame *there is no other word* is that? I never watch the show because I think the whole premise is ridiculous, but this is really hitting a new low.

    I do actually watch the Bachelor – well at least I watch the last few episodes each season – and I have no interest in seeing a recycled Bachelor. How lame! I prefer the Bachelorette anyway.

    One good thing about Brad being the new Bachelor (besides getting to read that HILARIOUS press release): It confirms that Chris L is not the Bachelor. I think it would have broken my heart to see him cry each week and have to deal with the emotional turmoil of being on that show. Yay Chris L for being smart enough to say no even though I’m sure they tried to throw lots of money at you!

    I have been losing more and more interest in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette due to the fact that there is so much drama now to believe that it is real and not staged. Way too much of a coincidince that these things happen and the producer’s are totally shocked. Yea right! As for Brad becoming the bachelor again, I definitely will not watch that season. I think it’s about stupid to bring him back. He had his chance already and blew it, and with millions of men who honestly want to find love, to give this guy another chance, is ridiculous. I may have already watched my last series. We’ll see, but I definitely won’t watch the upcoming one.

    I became disallusioned with the Bachelor the last time Brad was on.. Each Season it got worse.. You have Deanna getting a chance a picking Jesse and dumping him shortly after… Then Jason gets a second chance and ABC makes him dump Melissa on the air so everyone can see her reaction to the fact he had kept in touch with Mollie…. and now Brad is back again….. Ummm don’t think so. I think these two shows have run their course. Lets find something new and different

    This is bothering me and irritating me so badly that I had to comment…..What is with the horrendous grammar? If Brad says one more time “………with Ashley and I” or “………between so and so and I”……..It’s ME !! It’s “….between Ashley and Me!”………..and those girls saying “Brad and I’s ….
    There is no such word as I’s……..bless their hearts……….if they just knew how stupid they sound, slaughtering the English language……ugh…’s just impossible to watch and not be offended……….take a 3rd grade English class….ALL OF YOU!!

    O,h I agree so with Marla! If I hear “between Chantal and I” or any of the other sentences loaded with incorrect grammar I shall scream!!!!
    It sounds so uneducated and dumb!
