ABC recently announced that in addition to the new season of The Bachelor that will air this spring, The Bachelorette will return this summer.
Why there has been a three-year gap since a woman was last in the driver's seat is not known, though the waffling of Brad Womack may be a big reason the network eventually decided to bring back the popular spin-off.
DeAnna Pappas from the last season of The Bachelor was first on many lists of prime candidate for The Bachelorette. While nothing has been announced, she's certainly stoking the rumors with some recent comments.
If she were to become The Bachelorette, DeAnna said:
"I would approach the experience with a very open mind. I would also do my best to try to be very understanding considering I would know exactly what the guys are going through! I will approach it with the hope of finding one amazing man that hopefully I can live happily ever after with in the end."
DeAnna Pappas, seen here with that ass clown Brad, also mused on what kind of romantic dates she would like to plan if she were chosen as The Bachelorette.
"[Brad Womack] told us girls that he was able to help the producers with some of the ideas for the dates... like the circus date, the pool date, etc. Those dates were my favorite because I am so a low key, easy to please person," she said.
"I'm not a very "girly" girl... so diamonds and fancy dresses don't impress me! Flowers either for that matter... they just die! I guess if I could choose the dates, I would really love to go to a baseball game and drink beer! A football game would even please me. Maybe something more active, like white water rafting or on a boat at the lake. That's real life for me."
NOTE: Call us, DeAnna. Please?
Whether or not DeAnna Pappas becomes The Bachelorette remains to be seen, but it appears she's put some thought into it - and would be stellar.
