After the Final Rose: Brad Womack Tells All

by at . Comments

Last night, Brad faced both Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas, as well as all of America, to answer their questions on what went wrong on The Bachelor.

Host Chris Harrison interviews Jenni, who admits she was completely shocked Brad didn't choose her. She felt "mislead" by Brad Womack, especially given many little comments that he'd said to her along the way.

Jenni shows class in saying how disappointed she was to see Brad Womack do the same thing to DeAnna Pappas, especially given the way it was handled (giving her that ray of hope just as he dropped the "but").

Jenni Croft says Brad should have given someone a chance, even in the form of dating. But next we get to hear what DeAnna Pappas has to say.

She still seems confused, a little bit angry... and maybe a little hopeful that Brad will reverse his decision on this night and choose her for real.

Brad Womack Waits

In the end, Brad Womack stood alone.

"I'm angry because it's so confusing... did he think something better was going to come along?" DeAnna said, admitting that she's thought about him every day since and she'd say yes if he asked her for another chance.

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

Chris lets it slip that Brad actually asked the network fly DeAnna's father out for the final ceremony, so Brad could ask for her hand in marriage. His gut told him something was wrong when he went to buy the ring, however.

Jenni Croft comes out to join him and Brad Womack says it "hurts deep" to have Jenni lose respect for him. He feels he showed respect by walking.

DeAnna takes Jenni Croft's place then and is nervous. "Please don't hold it against me that I didn't fall in love. I'm just as heartbroken as you are."

Brad says to DeAnna Pappas that he thinks about her every single day, and just as it sounds like maybe he might be going to throw us for another loop by taking her back, DeAnna tries to force the issue... and Brad Womack replies that he's "very confident" in his decision, crushing her once again.

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

He did break DeAnna heart. If he wasn't in it for real he should not have been in at all. Jenni was 100% right when she said to him that if he wasn't ready after such a short time to make a lifelong committment then continue to pursue your feelings by seeing the person longer, not just for 6 weeks or so. And DeAnna was right that if you say the things you said how do you let that person walk away? I think he did come on this show because he is a good business man and he and his brothers thought it could further boost their bar business. The other brother who is not married is not a candidate because he doesn't come anywhere near the looks of this brother and his twin is already married. Not to mention that he told DeAnna and his own family that she had bar experience and that they would be gaining an employee not only a sister in law, he strung her along....(bleep..bleep...bleep!)

. I know that most of you will boo me like most of you did to Bradm when you all read this. But I do find Brad to be attractibe and a good man.
I don't believe in judging Brad, cause I find it unfair to do so, As I think inside of my heart of hearts Brad did the right thing as I would of done the same thing if I was in his shoes, as there is no harder thing to do than to give a person of the opposite sex false hope and tell them I love you when you just don't mean it.. As I to have had serious long term relationships, and had my heart broken, but I learned to deal with it, and also have broken some hearts too, as I too don't think its right to give false hope to someone and to look someone straight in the eye and not mean it when you say you love them, as that word is soooo sytong to use, I follow my heart and know when I find that special someone I know that him and I will be happy. But I don't think its right that you all want to speak bad about Brad, when he didn't want to want to look like a fool and not listen to his heart, when all along he said he was going to follow it. All I can say in ending is I support Brad's decision and wish both Jenni and DeeAnna all the best as well I wish Brad all the best. :)

Either Brad is still hung up on his ex, he is gay, or he just wants to be a bachelor for the rest of his life. He's in for a sad lonely life. He let the best thing escape him "DeAnna".
If I hadn't found the best person for me, I would have been looking for her. I think she has everything a man ever wanted. I'm not just talking looks. I didn't like the way she talked to the other girls, but she was very determined to get what she wanted.

I have mixed feelings about Brad. One side of me says that it is totally valid for him not to have fallen in love. The other previous bachelors all called it quits but gave the process a chance. His response was to stop it before it was a half-hearted attempt to continue. Also, we might have been mislead by editing. The other side thinks he was in it to promote his buisness. He thought he enjoyed the process but was in it for the overnight dates fun. Period.

I really respect that the decision was his to make but I felt he was playing games. He should at least apologize to DeAnna and her father - who he ASKED TO BE FLOWN OUT. Fine, he changed his mind but he could still be decent about it. And if you know your NO is a No don't say things like I think about you every day. He just lacked sincerity

I never watch these types of shows but my husband and i tuned in this season because the two finalists were nice looking women (according to my husband) Brad knew what he was getting into and he did the show and all of the women a dis-service by agreeing to go on. What a joke. I wish these women understood that he did them a favor. Another, emotionally unstable and dis-functional man. Probably has erectile disfunction and likes men. He is blue collar, not that attractive and there is a whole group of women in my San Francisco office who would touch him with a ten foot pole. I hate to call a spade a spade, but this guy is a LOSER

I so don't get where he is the poor Brad! I almost feel sorry for him. He tells Deanna he thinks about her each day since the show ended, yet he won't ask to get together, go further and SEE what could happen! I think he is confusing romantic/passion feelings and love. Well Brad, romance is nice, passion is incredible but those are not the base of a good marriage. Most of them fail! Companionship, understanding, trust, honesty etc. all those qualities you see in Deanna, you might never find again. True love is the one you grow into, not the one that hits you like a bomb full of desire. I think Brad, you weren't ready for that show. Your definition of love is still pretty juvenile. You may be and appear very mature in many ways but not when it comes to love :) I feel for Deanna, you let walk a very very person there...
When Deanna left your family she clearly said, in her own words "I'm getting to know him more and more and growing feelings for him" when asked if she was in love. That's how it is supposed to be...

To think that I liked him and thought he was a decent guy. Most people don't fall in love in a couple of months, especially when you have so many choices. But I agree with Jenni, he should've at least chosen one to get to know better after all the craziness of the show. He freaked out.
