If you haven't gotten the chance to meet Brad Womack, the 34-year-old bar owner and certified hunk from Austin, Texas, it's high time you did.
As the 11th season premiere of reality TV staple The Bachelor debuts, all eyes are on Brad Womack and whether he can break the curse of 10 straight drama packed seasons that have failed to produce a lasting relationship.
We all saw what happened to Andy Baldwin. One day, Tessa Horst. The next? Miss Iran. Yeah. Odds are 5:1 against Brad Womack marrying anyone.
Nonetheless, the 25 Bachelorettes are literally bouncing off the walls at the hotel in excitement over Brad Womack, whom they know nothing about!
First out of the limo at the beach house where he's set up shop is Sheena, who asks for a hug. She's looking forward to getting to know him. Who isn't!
Next is Jenni, who's wearing a short black dress. Ooooh la la. She's from Kansas, lived in Dallas for three years, and tells Austin native Brad this when she learns he's from the Lone Star State. He says, "We're going to get along already."
Brad says Kim's multicolored dress is "beautiful," and he asks her if he can "steal a hug." She's holding her shoes in her hand because she was worried she might be taller than him. She isn't, but no matter.
Sarah tells Brad Womack she's heard some wonderful things about him, but that she still didn't know his name was Brad. But it's all semantics at this point.
"We were trying to read your lips in the limo," she says, and had guessed his name was "Brian." She then gives him a hug.
Bettina, wearing a short, silver dress, appears more demure than the rest of the Bachelorettes. He tells her he likes her (strange) name.
So much hugging and a whole lot more follows. We have just gotten started on Brad's quest for everlasting love and reality TV quasi-fame. Continue reading what went down in this exclusive episode guide to last night's The Bachelor ...
