Matt Grant: I then dumped her three weeks after The Bachelor.
Just kidding. We think. Would it surprise you with the track record of this show? The Hollywood Gossip thinks that it would not.
In any case, Grant, the star of The Bachelor: London Calling, which debuts next Monday, says of his experience on the long-running reality TV show, "I definitely found love. It was incredible. I'm still buzzing from it now."
Matt Grant is the first international star in The Bachelor history, something he was worried about prior to meeting his 25 American suitors.
"I was concerned about how that would go down," said Grant. "Overall, it went down really well. But I won't lie, I was concerned for sure."
One thing Grant wasn't concerned about was The Bachelor trend in which the show's stars always dump their chosen females in real life.
Or, in the case of last season's star, Brad Womack, they reject both of the finalists in favor of no one. Because that makes a lot of sense.
Fortunately, one of last season's two spurned finalists, DeAnna Pappas, will return as The Bachelorette this summer. Yet the sting lingers.
It's a good thing Matt Grant is not fazed by the past.
"If you were to go by track records, life would be pretty dull," he said. "Those guys weren't me. I was confident that I could come onto this and be myself and I was hoping that there would be that one person that would stand out - someone with those unique qualities. I'm not too fussed about the track record of the show... As far as I'm concerned, [The Bachelor history] didn't bother me in the slightest."
