Brad Womack did the unthinkable by most fans’ standards and did not choose either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas on his finale back in November 2007. In the three years since Bachelor Nation had last seen Brad Womack, he went through intensive therapy, which took him on a painful journey of self-discovery that led to personal revelations about his commitment issues. At 38 years old, Brad returned to “The Bachelor” with a new outlook on love and truly ready to find his wife.
Brad became the first person to ever be the Bachelor twice. His journey as the 15th Bachelor kicked off at Bachelor Mansion, where he met 30 beautiful women, all ready to put everything on the line for a chance at love. Throughout the journey, Brad and the women traveled to fabulous destinations, including Catalina Island, Las Vegas, Costa Rica, and the British overseas territory of Anguilla. They were also treated to surprise musical performances from Train and Seal.
After visiting the hometowns of his final four women, Brad and his final three traveled to South Africa. There, after introducing the final two women to his family, Brad’s journey as the Bachelor ended when he proved he was a changed man and dropped to one knee to propose to Emily Maynard, a 25-year-old single mom and widow from West Virginia.
