"The Bachelor" has been a popular show on WFAA for 21 seasons, while "The Bachelorette" has been airing for 12.
It was just announced that Rachel Lindsay, a Dallas attorney, will be the franchise's first black bachelorette.
To get ready, she sat down with The Frisky to talk about her upcoming wedding, what reality TV auditions are really like, and, of course, whether Brad and Emily will make it. I dated this guy off and on for three years and a few months before the auditions, he dumped me. I had this friend who was an avid fan of the show and she called me one day and said, “Oh my gosh, they’re doing auditions for ‘The Bachelor’ in Atlanta. Of course, I thought they were genuinely asking but they were calling to see if I was still single. How would you feel if we gave you this opportunity? If you offer it to me, I would love to do it.” I didn’t know they’d picked me to be “The Bachelorette” until they told me on the “Ellen De Generes Show.” I was super excited. Before, he called periodically and would say, “I miss you. Whether they clip it or leave out a certain thing—unfortunately you knew what you were getting into. Sometimes I hate it when people blame the editing, though I do understand the frustration of it.
De Anna Pappas has had a long, strange ride on “The Bachelor.” First, she fell for Brad Womack, only for him to walk away without proposing to either woman at his final rose ceremony. I never thought in a million years they would choose me. My sister lived with me in my house in Georgia, so she saw me cry every single day. The whole time the show was on, I held onto the idea, “Maybe Brad is seeing that he made a mistake.” See, I didn’t get any answers. We spent the last night together before the final rose ceremony. When the show was airing, I was so upset and confused.
Rumor has it that Vienna will be his final choice, though meanwhile the whole world is expressing a strong preference for Tenley.
But before Jake flies off into the sunset with either of these ladies, we thought we'd take a look back and catch you up on where some of the "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants past have ended up.
while she was a guest on De Generes' daytime talk show.
In the 2008 season of The Bachelorette, Pappas eventually rejected single dad Jason Mesnick and accepted the marriage proposal of professional snowboarder Jesse Csincsak.
Next, she came back as “The Bachelorette” and fell in love with quirky snowboarder Jesse Csincak, only to find out they weren’t compatible after all. He put me in the limo and said, “I’ll see you tomorrow … It’s going to be a good day.” I truly thought he was going to choose me. I was really hanging onto something until I saw him at “After the Final Rose” and he was like, “No, my decision still stands.” At that point, he was back together with his ex-girlfriend so a lot of things came to be clear to me.
Finally, she met the twin brother of a guy from Jillian Harris’ season of “The Bachelorette,” and fell in love—this time for real. He said that off camera—no one forced him to say that. I didn’t start the healing process until that point. I’m not wasting anymore tears on this butthole.” I came home and picked up with my life and put myself together and resolved that I’m not gonna be that girl anymore. I’d never dated more than one person at a time, so it was hard for me to date 25 guys. My strategy was to have an open heart and an open mind and try to decipher between love and lust because those are two very different things.
Their relationship lasted a few months before the engagement was called off. In late 2011, De Anna was on the show Bachelorette Party on the Oxygen channel.
Her episode was called "Big Fat Greek Bachelorette Party".
Your guess is as good as mine.” I didn’t take it seriously. When they kept calling and calling and said, “Guess what? If you don’t fall in love, come home.” What were the qualities that really struck you about Brad when you were on the show?
I lived in a normal house, I had a normal job, I have a normal body—I’m not 5’9″ and blonde with big boobs.
