And then there were two!
Brad Womack narrowed down his Bachelor contestants to his final two yesterday after eliminating Ashley Hebert — the rumored next Bachelorette according to Bachelor insider Reality Steve. ABC will reportedly be making the official announcement within the next 2 weeks.
Ashley’s elimination was not a shocker considering how awry her one on one date went. Brad’s dates with Chantal O’Brien and Emily Maynard however went much smoother, and in his latest blog for PEOPLE, Brad tries to explain what really happens on these overnight dates. Excerpts are below –
“I’m told that the majority of you that are watching find this particular week the most interesting because this is the week of the fantasy overnight dates. I’ll be the first to admit, as a fan of the show before I was on it, I would always tune in and wonder what exactly happens on those overnight dates. Will the couple really stay the night together? Are they really free from cameras or is there a crew on standby, waiting to capture the next groundbreaking moment? Well I, of course, found out the answer to my questions. Yes, we (the couple) are completely alone and camera free. Yes, we stay in the same room together overnight. What happens is completely up to the couple.
I’d like to explain why overnight dates are so important and what I used those nights away from the cameras for. I wanted to take the opportunity with all three of the women to talk, off camera, so we could all feel even more comfortable. By this time, I had gotten to know the women so very well and I wanted to feel confident in the fact that, after talking with each of them all night, I knew exactly what type of woman each of them is. I wanted to be confident that I actually knew these women as well as I thought I did. The overnight dates actually gave me quite a bit of clarity – clarity that I had been looking for!”
Airing next week is the Women Tell All episode and in two weeks, Brad will make his final pick!
