DeAnna Pappas Tells Her Side of the Story

at . Comments

We heard from Brad Womack earlier. Now it's time to hear what DeAnna Pappas - one of the two women he shockingly rejected on The Bachelor finale - has to say about the ordeal. Here are excerpts from an interview she did with BuddyTV ...

BuddyTV: 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 we had a very strong connection. I truly felt that 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 him.

DeAnna Pappas was rejected by Brad Womack at the last minute.

BuddyTV: Have you guys had any contact since?

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

BuddyTV: 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, and I don't believe any of the rumors. I don't listen to them because I know that Brad is very genuine. He is a great person and one of the most amazing men I've ever met. I truly believe he just got completely confused.

BuddyTV: Do you have any sympathetic feelings toward Jenni Croft?

DeAnna Pappas: Of course. Jenni is a great person with 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.

The Bachelor Quotes

I would definitely prefer not to be the first Bachelor rejected at the end of all of this.


This is not another season of The Bachelorette. Or Paradise. This is actually The Bachelor. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
