DeAnna Pappas Excited For The Bachelorette

by at . Comments

Move over, Shayne Lamas.

A new season of The Bachelorette kicks off Monday, starring DeAnna Pappas, the girl that jackass Brad Womack was about to propose to on The Bachelor, but dumped on the season finale (as he did Jenni Croft) instead.

In any case, DeAnna gets a new chance at love when 25 men from across the country come to win her heart. This season features a new twist.

She'll be able to ask some of the men to live with her, in order to get to know them better. Her former Bachelor rival, Jenni Croft, will help her narrow down the group of men on the first night at the house as well.

In return, DeAnna will teach Jenni how to properly spell her first name.

Pappas, DeAnna

Every time a commercial airs for The Bachelorette, it begins by showing DeAnna Pappas' heart get broken when Brad Womack dumps her on The Bachelor.

Although hard to watch, DeAnna Pappas keeps it in perspective.

"I was really confused when it happened. But after it was all over, said and done with, I was actually very happy that [Brad Womack] stood up for what he believed in and didn't propose to someone just because he was under pressure," Pappas said.

"I'm thankful he didn't propose to me. Everything happens for a reason and I'm where I am today because of all of that and I'm very happy for that."

When DeAnna found out she would be the next star of The Bachelorette, she was flattered to have been chosen out of all the women in America.

"I'm so thankful, grateful and I am truly a lucky person. I thank God every day I wake up," she said.

Despite her bad experience on The Bachelor with Brad Womack, she vowed not to make any of the men this season pay for it.

"It's hard, with such a great group of guys, to be tough on anyone," she said. "It's all about everybody having fun and finding love."

DeAnna Pappas also said that she has no ill feelings towards Brad Womack and wishes him nothing but the best.

According to Pappas, ABC did a great job overall of finding her 25 men who she was attracted to, however, there were some turn-offs.

"I cannot date someone who smokes. That's a definite no-no," she admitted. "If he's wishy-washy and doesn't know what he wants, that's another no-no. Anything else, I'm pretty open to."

When Pappas was announced as the next Bachelorette by ABC, she met up with The Bachelorette's most famous cover, Trista and Ryan Sutter.

"She's like the poster child for The Bachelorette," Pappas said. "She gave me some pretty good advice: Follow my heart and be true to myself. I can only hope to have a successful relationship like she has."
