    Sorry, I'm just now catching up on my reading. It is a picture of Trista,
    Ryan, and Max. I thought it was precious. It is really small and hard to tell it's them.

    BTW, I just read on another thread that Brad's ex doesn't work for him. That's great to know because it would have been tough for the most self-confidant woman to handle.

    BTW, here's a link to see the picture and the article that goes with it: -: guess who got undressed for my camera.....

    What kind of women is Brad looking for?

    I found this in a post from Sept 8, 2007.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, let me see. I met him probably 6 or 7 years ago when he started managing the bar I worked at with him twin. Right from the start they were loved by everyone...honest, friendly, very sweet. He has grown to be loved and respected in Austin, all the bars he owns with his partners are well run, fun places. He dated a friend of mine a while back, and now they are still friends.The ladies have always loved him...not just the looks, but he personality too! He is somewhat shy in a way, well maybe not shy but reserved. I think the women he chooses will be fun, active and athletic and driven. He is a very ambitious person...as you can tell from his owning 4 bars with his brothers and partner jason.

    Re: Brad Womack-Bachelor 11

    These two posts are from the thoughts & comments in General#4 spoilers, My comments are about Brad and have nothing to do with spoilers, so I am putting my post in here.

In basic terms, he didn't fall in love and he didn't see a need to "act" like he did to keep the "romantics" of the world happy. Its unfortunate, yet understandable, that people would immediately point to free publicity for the bars as his motivation. You will see, with time, that publicity isn't the reason he entered the craziness of the bachelor... once again, no one is more dissapointed than Brad

    i appreciate you coming on here to attempt to put your best spin on this unfortunate nightmare, and try to support your friend/business associate the best way you can, but it hasn't worked for me. and i do take exception to your last statement here. i would think perhaps jenni and deanna, (2 beautiful women that brad got to pour out there hearts and souls to him of their love for him, and then he coldly rejected both on international tv, without so much as a chance for either to try to find love in the real dating world, after their brief dating experience on camera, and he could not wait to escort them to their limos)...well i would think that those 2 beautiful women might consider themselves more disappointed than brad.

    i have no idea what brad's true motivation for doing tb was...but i can not believe that he could describe these 2 beautiful women in the loving way he did, and then not at least want to explore things with one of them further to see where it might go. that i could and would have understood. this is a man who had such supposed genuine intentions for doing the show...and is so honest. for someone with such claims of honesty,and lying was a done deal for him...he seemed to have no problem lying to not only jenni and dede...but the viewing audience ever since. brad seemed to lie easily and very convincingly.

    sadly brad reminds me now so much of my exfiance, who turned out to be an international conman, who got me for my life savings. they just have such similar demeanours, and characteristics. and the lack of regard and respect brad showed jenni and especially deanna in his rejection. the level of coldness, and heartlessness demonstrated to deanna was really the worst. brad had a reason to do tb...but finding a girlfriend/fiance/wife/loving partner was not part of it. i am not trying to say brad is a sociopath or conman...but he does need serious counselling. too bad fleiss sought to hang out jenni and dede to dry. thanks

    He did not have to a) make a promise or b) dump her at the FRC. There is plenty of middle ground between the two. If dating IRL didn't work out, OK, cool, it didn't work out.

    The issue I also have is that I don't accept that Brad's "intense feelings" and the real emotion I believe I saw were turned off like a water tap. There's something going on there. I think that you (and BabyfaceC in defending his friend) want to make a point of saying that Brad flat-out knew it'd never work with Deanna. I guess I just don't understand why, in light of the things Brad said to and about Deanna (and Jenni, even).

    Bah. Maybe this is all my issue. Apparently, love hits you like a lightning bolt or it doesn't and everything is all tidy-tidy-tidy settled then from that day forward. Press the star key for marriage, press 0 for nope-see-ya. Gee, my love life then has apparently held way too much unnecessary drama.

    To me the issue is not the fact that Brad did not continue a relationship with DeAnna. I think that is better then a fake relationship.

    But did Brad really feel nothing or did he turn it off like the tap like finalefan mentioned.

    Brad is a good actor, he performed really well these last couple of months for the media. I wonder how much he performed with the women, was any of it true, or was it turned off last minute.

    I have issues with Brad's demeanour. Brad went into a panic or at least it seemed that way to me when he was explaining to DeAnna.

    That to me is not normal and a much deeper issue on Brad's part either with fear of relationships, fear of failure of a relationship, fear of commitment or something else.

    If Brad came on the show with these fears, then he came on the show with false pretences of finding a wife.

    When did Brad decide he was not feeling love for DeAnna, could he not have dropped hints the night before, or not have been as aggressive with the commitment questions at the last chance date. Brad dropped hints with Hillary, if he felt so much for DeAnna why not do the same for her.

    When Brad said do you know how I feel about you and DeAnna answered no I do not. I found that "upset/anger" misguided, She is the one that got dumped why is he upset with her when she said, no I do not know how you feel about me.

    Another major issue I have is when DeAnna asked what will happen when you regret your decision, Brad says I do not know. He seems to get emotional and says he has to walk her out now. I found that way to rushed Why end the discussion when DeAnna is asking questions, I felt he at the minimum should have had the patience to answer her questions even if it was to difficult for him. At this point it was about closure for DeAnna not for Brad's comfort level, I found that very odd.

    Yes, MomLady, Brad needs to go to a counselor, not try to work out his commitment issues on the Bachelor! But, if we look at the track record of past bachelors, None of them have gotten married yet. Byron is still engaged to Mary, but it's become a joke as to what year they may finally tie the not. Andrew Firestone is engaged, but not yet married. Interesting. And they always have excuses for why they've never found their true love, and thus need to go through this ridiculous charade, er...process... to try to find their soulmate. The Bachelor seems to be a commitmentphobe's paradise (and ultimately, their hell, I suppose).

    I can understand why Brad has commitment issues given his family background, but since he was so familiar with the show, it's format, it's editing, etc., what really compelled him to go on the show in the first place? Why would he think that if none of the others had ever found love on this show, that he would? I think he needs some intensive counseling before he'll be ready for a love relationship.

    For what it's worth, my husband of 20 years also thought Brad's break-up speeches were oddly self-absorbed.

    ITA with you MomLady! Nobody could force Brad to fall in love with either woman, but there were SO many things he should not have said in that case. It's just wrong to start a rejection with telling the girl that when he first kissed her, he felt like he hadn't felt in a long time, if he EVER felt like that!!! I actually feel sorry for him in a way... if he felt so special with DeAnna and still doesn't feel "love" for her, then he probably doesn't even know how it feels to love someone. He also shouldn't have brought up the marriage topic, and there's a bunch of things he should not have said at the LCD.

    I also don't think he had the right to be upset about what DeAnna said (and she was pretty nice considering what he had just done to her), especially when she said "This will explain why I never wear my heart on my sleeve." and he said "Don't say that, please don't say that to me." I got so mad at him for telling her what she shouldn't say right after breaking her heart.

    Doesn't anyone else feel they just wasted their time ? That is 10 hours (or more) that I will never get back. All for what ? To see a guy have two wonderful gals in front of him, just to chicken out ?

    Never again.....won't watch this show again.

    No, I don't feel like I wasted my time. Without watching the season, I would never have gotten to see these two wonderful women DeAnna and Jenni, who are the best F2 in Bachelor history imo. It's sad that out of all seasons, this one was the one where both F2 girls were sent away broken-hearted since they were both so nice. I've been a DeAnna fan from the moment I first saw her, and I admire her for being so strong, down-to-earth and honest among many other things I love about her, but I also admire Jenni for being able smile all the time, even if she maybe doesn't feel like smiling. That's something I've never been able to do, but it's a great quality. So again, no, I don't feel like I've wasted my time. I was just extremely disappointed with the way Brad treated those two wonderful women in the end. I don't blame him for not chosing either one, I blame him for leading them on big time (especially DeAnna right until he tells her he doesn't love her). And he really seemed at the FRC as if he was sorry for himself because he didnt find anybody. He will never find a woman if "perfect" (and the way he describes DeAnna, she seems perfect to him) isn't good enough for him.

    Maybe the whole purpose of this season of the bachelor is to get America to fall in love with two amazing ladies so Fleiss can guarantee an audience to watch TWO seasons of the Bachelorette. Just a thought.

    Re: Brad Womack-Bachelor 11

    it's really hard to find the guys needed to cast one season of the Bacheolorette, let alone two. I don't think this was intentional to set up any Bachelorette sequels.

    My take - Brad realized that he had someone who told his mom she loved him and wanted to marry him and like the commitment-phobe Bachelor that he is, he panicked and ran away. There is a reason he's still a bachelor. I think they need to cast older guys (in their 40s, not their 80s, yikes) who are actually interested in get married if they want these series to end up with engagements.
