In the dramatic, now-infamous final rose ceremony on the November 19 season finale of The Bachelor, Texas bar owner Brad Womack made reality TV history when he said goodbye to both the show's finalists.
Both real estate agent DeAnna Pappas and Phoenix Suns dancer Jenni Croft were stunned - along with millions of The Bachelor viewers at home.
Brad Womack gave some vague explanations in a special after-show, but now, he is telling Us Weekly the real reason he let both lovely ladies go.
"DeAnna and I had something that's pretty special. But I did not see this crazy love that would turn into a lifetime," says Brad Womack, who is still single.
Brad Womack says honesty was his policy with Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas.
"I just didn't want to lead anybody on," the hunk maintains. "I was very honest with both of the ladies about that."
Brad Womack went on to talk about what he thinks about his still-single status - and respond to swirling rumors that he is actually gay.
He had no comment on the speculation that he was most smitten with a third contestant, Bettina Bell, but was turned off by a bad hometown visit.
