Many fans were shocked to hear that Brad Womack of the Bachelor season 11 was once again chosen to be the new bachelor on the upcoming season 15, as Brad is notorious for dumping both of his final two contestants during his 2007 season.
But ready or not, the new season has been filmed and is all set to premiere early next year on ABC! In the preview clip below, we see that Brad really really wants us to know that he is indeed a changed man, but the best part of the clip is when one of his bachelorettes decides to give him a slap on behalf of all women.
According to an ABC executive, the women had heard rumors of Brad being the next bachelor but they did not know for sure until they got out of the limo.
“The rumors about Brad were out there and some of the girls had seen them and were prepared for Brad but for a majority of them, it was a surprise,” the executive tells Entertainment Weekly.
The new season of The Bachelor premieres Monday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c on ABC. A preview clip is below –
