    Media & Guest Appearances for Bachelor 10

    November 28, 2006


    ABC’S NEW “BACHELOR” IS TRULY AN OFFICER AND GENTLEMAN,
    NOT TO MENTION A DOCTOR AND A WORLD CLASS TRIATHLETE

    Tenth Edition of ABC’s Popular Romance Reality Series Will Air in Spring 2007


    U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, M.D., 30, an undersea medical officer for a special operations dive unit stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, has been selected to star in the tenth edition of ABC’s popular romance reality series, when “The Bachelor” returns to the network in the Spring of 2007. In addition to his professional accomplishments, this Bachelor is also a world-class triathlete. Now this real-life ‘officer and a gentleman’ faces the most exciting mission of his life -- finding true love.

    Andy grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he was valedictorian in high school and a competitive swimmer who made All-American; he was even named ESPN’s National Scholar Athlete of the Year in 1995. His small-town upbringing in a family of modest means taught him a strong work ethic, so as a teenager he worked three jobs (paper boy, lifeguard and his own lawn mowing business), all with an eye towards paying for his college education. As Andy explains, there had never been a doctor or military officer in the Baldwin family before, so he set those professional goals for himself. He saved $25,000 for college before graduating high school, when the Navy offered him a full ROTC scholarship. He took it and went to Duke University, where he was a varsity letter winner on the men’s swim team and began training for marathons, all while taking a pre-med course load and earning a degree in biology, with a concentration in genetics. After graduating Duke with honors, he enrolled in the University of California-San Francisco School of Medicine, and was a surgical intern at Naval Hospital San Diego.

    His move to the west coast inspired a new passion -- cycling -- and he combined this with his excellence in swimming and running to compete in his first triathlon in 2000, falling in love with the sport. He has since gone on to compete internationally in numerous Ironman, Half-Ironman and other triathlons and marathons, often ranking among the top 5 finishers in his age group. One of his biggest supporters at his races was his beloved Uncle Tom, who died of pancreatic cancer just one month after diagnosis. To honor his uncle, Andy established a fund to raise money for pancreatic cancer research, and has raised over $20,000 to date. In 2006 he was asked to serve as group surgeon for a team of 50 military personnel headed to Laos. His role during the mission was to take care of the medical needs of his team and to treat Laotian villagers in need of medical attention. The experience was unforgettable.

    Andy’s achievements are matched by his good-natured personality, stunning good looks and self-deprecating sense of humor. He’s an unabashed romantic, has watched the series and believes that the show can help find him the woman who could become his wife. “Who doesn’t love the movie ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’? We’re bringing the best parts of that romantic film to real life,” said Mike Fleiss, executive producer of “The Bachelor.”

    Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor” is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Lisa Levenson are the executive producers. David Bohnert and Martin Hilton are the co-executive producers.

    Thanks for the article! I wonder if he has room in his life for passions that are not related to athletics and career? Will be interesting to find out!

    He sounds promising and should hopefully make for a good Bachelor. But, wow, Fleiss is SUCH a... moronic tool. An Officer and A Gentleman? The 'best parts'? So, are they going to switch Louis Gossett Jr. for Chris Harrison this season? Give the girls a job working in a factory?

    Hey, I'm apparently not as hip as some of the rest of you. What is a tool? Why did Lisa call Travis a tool? Why would Fleiss be a tool in this show? Enquiring minds want to know!

    With a trio of projects, military men show they have more than spine. You'd think risking their lives would be challenging enough, but this year saw a veritable army of active-duty and retired Soldiers going even further. "As a civilian, there is now way I would have ever been able to reach the regions I did in Laos," says Lieutenant Andrew Baldwin, a 29-year-old Navy doctor who served a month long tour in Southeast Asia last spring as the surgeon fro a team of 50 military personnel attempting to find the remains of Vietnam War POWs and MIAs. In addition to doctoring his own unit. , Baldwin helicoptered and trekked into remote villages, treating more than 600 Laotians stricken with everything from lice to liver flukes. Three years and 11 surgeries after suffering multiple gunshot wounds during heavy ground fire in Afghanistan, former US Air Force pararescuer Craig Fitzgerald, 29, and fellow pararescuer David Wilcoxen, 2, set out on July 16 from Mount Katahdin, Maine, on a 2175 mile through-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Their mission to raise $100000 for the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, a nonpartisan organization that assists disabled veterans when they return from war. As of late September, the pair had crossed into Virginia and raised $25,000 (trail-torecovery.org) Two Air Force pilots have a loftier ambition: to climb the highest peak on each continent to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (specialops.org) which provides college scholarships and educational counseling to kids of Special Ops Personnel killed while on duty. So far, the Seven Summits chasers have tagged Africa's 19,2340 foot Kilimanjaro and Europe's 18,510 foot Mount Elbrus and raised more than $10,000. In July, Special Ops agent Dan Schilling raised $20,000 for the foundation and set a world record by BASE-jumping off Twin Falls, Idaho Perrine Memorial Bridge 201 times in 24 hours.

    tool = idiot, moron, loser

    The answers then become self-explanatory.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. Thanks.

    Hey imagine the fantasy dates with this new guy: First we're going to climb a mountain! Then we're going to swim along the coast. Finally we will sleep in a lavishly appointed tent.

    OH goodie!
