Austin bar owner Brad Womack starred as The Bachelor in 2007, infamously leaving both Deanna Pappas and Jenni Croft behind on an emotional season finale.
Now, he's reportedly going to take another crack at reality TV love! According to reports, Brad has signed on to star on the new season, beginning in January.
"All signs are pointing to Brad being the next Bachelor," Steve Carbone, a.k.a. Reality Steve, reports, noting that this long-running rumor is basically a done deal.
It sounds ridiculous, but the show has earned record ratings ever since Brad rejected DeAnna, who rejected Jason Mesnick, who rejected Jillian Harris, who nixed Jake, who rejected Ali Fedotowsky (sort of). So in a way, he started it all!
The show believes recycling people is what works, but really? Do people still care about Brad Womack? Apparently enough for ABC to contemplate this twice. Brad reportedly was approached before Jake last season and turned it down.
Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton passed up the role, as predicted, opting to return to his normal life on Cape Cod instead. Admirable, albeit unusual. Which leaves us with The Bachelor star from three seasons ago. Amazing.
What do you think of Brad Womack as the next Bachelor?
