We've heard from Brad Womack earlier. Now it's time to hear what DeAnna Pappas - one of the two women he spurned on The Bachelor - has to say.

Our friends at BuddyTV sat down with DeAnna Pappas for an exclusive. She dishes some pretty good dirt on Brad Womack, fellow rejected finalist Jenni Croft, and the rest of the girls on the show. Here are some excerpts ...

Question: Did you watch the finale? Or did you decide to skip it?

DeAnna Pappas: It was kind of hard for me to watch, but I watched it.

Question: Did you have any sympathetic feelings toward Jenni Croft?

DeAnna Pappas: Of course. Jenni is a great person. She has a big heart. And to see her standing there smiling, I mean, I don't feel like she had any clue that he wasn't going to pick her, and my heart just went out to her.

Brad Womack, DeAnna Pappas

DeAnna Pappas and Brad Womack: Almost meant to be.

Question: They mentioned very briefly on that after the final rose special, that your dad was flown out for the engagement. What happened?

DeAnna Pappas: When I came back to my apartment the day after the final rose, my dad was there. He was just as confused as I was because he had no idea. He just knew that I didn't get chosen after he was already there.

Question: Now how long into the process did you really start to think that things could be serious with Brad Womack?

DeAnna Pappas: I knew from the first moment that I sat down and talked to Brad that I had a very strong connection with him. I truly felt like I was meant to be with this person. But it wasn't until he went to my hometown and Brad got to meet my family, that I realized I was actually falling in love with this person.

Question: Have you guys had any contact since?

DeAnna Pappas: I have had contact with Brad. Yes.

Question: There's a lot of rumors going around as to why he pick either of you. Do you, at this point, have any idea as to why he opted out?

DeAnna Pappas: I do have an idea, and I don't believe any of the rumors. I don't listen to them because I know that Brad is a very genuine person. He is a great person and one of the most amazing men that I've ever met. I truly believe that in this experience he got completely confused. He didn't know what was real and what wasn't real, and I'm not sure that he even knows today.

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.

  • DeAnna Pappas, Brad Womack

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.
