Could somebody do me a favor?
Monday night was the first time I've ever seen "The Bachelor" and I'm out of the loop. Could somebody tell me the "rules" for participation? Or "terms for termination"? I've googled and not been able to find anything. I read somewhere (but I can't remember where) that having had an abortion or having been previously married would get a contestant booted. Also, when I looked at abc's application page, it said that contestants had to sign medical release forms.
I do hope that means that if something happens on-site, the producers can procure medical treatment for the contestant(s), not that the contestants' records are available for the producers' perusal.
Thanks in advance for any help!
The first several seasons of The Bachelor did not field any women that I remember who were married. I think Charlie's season really had the first women who actually had a child from a previous relationship. Travis had a contestant who was previously married whom he promptly ditched. All the contestants are supposedly screened for STDs, although contestants with emotional frailties are not banned, but seem to be encouraged to apply and be accepted.

The first bachelor, Alex's choice, Amanda had been married.

How old the bachelorettes are will depend on the bachelor...it seems Byron may have wanted them older as he was really serious about finding a mate. Every other show they have topped out at early 30s with most girls in their 20s (and it shows ).

Melinda was 39 - Byron dismissed her the first night, but the rumor was that she had gotten together later with Jay, the other Bachelor who didn't get picked the first night. Mary was the only successful mid-30's Bachelorette at 36, but it didn't hurt that she looked 25. Cyndi was 37 and made it to the final three the same season, but she also looked several years younger.

I guess Fleiss thinks those 29-year-old hags are just not competitive in the hot tub any more. It's funny how all of Lorenzo's 30+ Bachelorettes were dismissed immediately, too.
Thanks for confirming the 39 year old...I'm not senile yet at the ripe old (decrepit by Fleiss standards) age of 41. My immediate goal is to look OK in my tried and true bikini in January in Mexico, but I *would* be kicked right outta Fleiss' hot tub. (Good thing I'm not lookin' for a navy doc...) Funny, I bet Fleiss wouldn't look so great in a hot tub...
