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.

"I'm still looking for the same things that I said all along â€" a best friend, a life-long partner and someone to fall madly in love with."

Brad Womack: The Bachelor

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.

The Hollywood Gossip has been blowing up with people weighing in on Brad Womack and his shocking no-decision on the season finale of The Bachelor.

Last night, Brad faced the music in the form of both Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas, as well as all of America, to answer questions on his inactions.

Despite feeling "misled" by Brad Womack, Jenni Croft said she's disappointed in how Womack did the same to DeAnna Pappas, especially giving her a ray of hope just as he dropped the "but" and broker her heart. Nice one, Brad.

Jenni Croft says Brad should have given someone a chance, even in the form of dating. DeAnna Pappas still seems confused, angry... and into Womack.

Brad Womack then arrives to a mix of applause and boos. He says that he made his decision because he didn't want to make false promises to the girls.

Neither Jenni Croft (left) or DeAnna Pappas did it for Brad Womack.

We learn that Brad actually asked the network fly DeAnna Pappas' father out for the final ceremony, so Brad could ask for her hand in marriage - but his gut told him something was wrong when he went to buy the ring!

Jenni Croft rips Brad Womack for not at least giving either woman a chance and he says it "hurts deeply" to have Jenni lose respect for him.

Brad says to DeAnna that he thinks about her every single day, and it sounds like maybe he might be going to throw us for yet another loop by taking her back!

DeAnna hints that she would accept such a chance... and Womack replies that he's "very confident" in his decision, crushing her once again.

DeAnna Pappas can't hold back and cries to Womack, telling him that "[You're] the one person that I trusted most out of all of this, and you broke my heart."

Brad Womack's response: "I thought I was taking the high road." But was he?

For Jenni Croft, it was not meant to be.

For DeAnna Pappas, it was not meant to be, either.

Brad Womack threw viewers a curveball last night as The Bachelor star did not give a final rose to either of his remaining ladies - Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas - during the season finale. His decision left both in tears.

"The fact that he didn't pick either one of us is harder to deal with," said DeAnna Pappas, a 25-year-old realtor and bartender from Neunan, Ga., who was rejected after Brad Womack had sent Jenni Croft packing.

"This is one of the worst feelings in the world... telling someone how you feel about them and they kind of just reject your feelings," Jenni Croft, a 27-year-old Phoenix Suns cheerleader hailing from Wichita, Ks., said. "[That's] the reason why it's so hard for me to tell people how I feel."

Brad Womack Sits Alone

Brad Womack sits alone with the final rose, having chosen to dole it out.

After both girls had gone and met Brad Womack's family, Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas each had one more chance to impress Brad during a final set of solo dates. Then it was time for the big showdown ... who would it be?

Neither. Brad Womack said that he could see both DeAnna Pappas (left) and Jenni Croft (right) being his wife and found himself in quite a quandary. In the end, he found a unique and historic way out of this jam.

ABC will air a special The Bachelor: After the Final Rose episode in which Brad will explain his move and Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas get a shot at some additional answers from Mr. Womack on Tuesday, November 20. Should be hot.

Hopefully Brad Womack gets his ass beaten with a sock full of quarters by both of these vengeful ladies. Now that would be a surprise twist.

On tonight's finale of The Bachelor, Brad Womack will be bringing home two  women to meet his family. One of which will receive the ... final ... rose.

In one corner, we have 25-year-old Realtor, part-time bartender and full-time Southern gal with a strange and hot name, DeAnna Pappas.

In the other corner, we have 27-year-old Wichita native and Phoenix Suns dancer (and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader), Jenni Croft.

Will Brad shock the world choose Jenni Croft, with whom he's had obvious  hot chemistry since the beginning, and who, despite her focus on her career which might keep them apart, has worn her heart on her sleeve from the get-go?

Or will he go for DeAnna Pappas, the more demure beauty with whom he seemed to have some initial sparks, and whose terrific family visit seemed to really hit the mark with the wholesome family man Brad Womack?

Brad Womack, Jenni Croft

An NBA dancer like Trista Sutter, Jenni Croft (above) has seen her stock rise from the beginning. She's made it known throughout that she wants to do her own thing in life, not just be the girlfriend of the guy who owns four bars. She has "priorities of her own" - like shakin' that cute butt in front of 20,000 NBA fans 41 times a year. Nonetheless, Brad Womack seems to really dig her.

Brad Womack, DeAnna Pappas

On the other hand, he seems to adore DeAnna Pappas (above). Deanna has emerged as the clear favorite in the eyes of many viewers, seemingly possessing the whole package our hunk is after. Our guess is that ABC is overselling the chemistry with Jenni Croft and trying to plant some doubt around Deanna Pappas. But we've been wrong before when it comes to The Bachelor.

Who will it be, DeAnna Pappas or Jenni Croft? Only time will tell. Tonight.
