I remember that Helene and Gwen wrote a book and I think had fairly decent sales.
I missed B1, but watched B2 and became hopelessly addicted. Even though Aaron did want publicity for his new restaurant (remember Trolley's), the idea was fresh and the girls came with good intentions. The celebrity factor of being "The Bachelor" back then was bigger than now and Aaron seemed to have been swept away. Still, great group to watch.
Thanks for the Helene and Gwen shots.
