Chris Harrison blogs, 'The Bachelor: The Women Tells All'

chris-bachelor-padTo be honest this week I don’t have a whole lot of dirt for you: The name of the show — The Women Tell All — really speaks for itself. Obviously, we don’t leave any of the good stuff out. My interview with Brad where we go over the season and talk about the unseen moments is always a fun night for all of us. We shoot it at the Bachelor house a few weeks before the Tell All special. It’s fun because it’s a relaxed, laid back, pressure-free atmosphere with just a few of us at the house, so we all share some good stories and have some laughs. I think this is where you see the “real” Brad. This is the guy I see all the time, and wish you got to see more of this season.

We shot the show in a new studio. It was much smaller than the one we usually use. For this reason it was a very tight, intimate setting. When I introduce the women, I always find it interesting to listen to the audience’s reaction to each woman. Ashley S., Ashley H., and Shawntel got the loudest applause. Madison got an odd response, like the fans still don’t know what to make of her. Michelle definitely got a mixed response. Fans obviously feel very strongly about her one way or the other. As soon as the ladies came out, so did their claws. I honestly figured by the time everyone came back for the Tell All, all would be forgiven and the girls would try to make nice with each other. Not so much!  During the season I felt that Melissa really came off as the instigator and the woman at the center of all the drama. But on this night it was Raichel who just wouldn’t let it go. There is just something about Melissa that just drives Raichel crazy. I still don’t think Raichel fully understands the ramifications of her actions. Even when Brad came out and flat-out told them both the reason he sent them home was because of all the drama they caused, Raichel still blamed Melissa. She would claim responsibility for her actions but in the same breath blame it all on Melissa. At the very end of my interview I gave Melissa a chance to apologize to Raichel and the other girls and she did. I then gave Raichel the same opportunity and she once again followed up her apology with the dreaded “but,” as in “but it was Melissa’s fault and I just don’t like her.” As Melissa said, “You can lead a horse to water…”

Ashley S. was a tough interview for me to do. I feel bad for this woman. You can tell she’s been deeply hurt before and she really thought this time would be different. She just seems so vulnerable. I truly hope my words got through to her. She is a very sweet, intelligent woman and I’m guessing she will find love quickly after this show now that she knows what she’s really looking for. I also enjoyed my talk with the new Ashley H. I, for one, love the new look and new attitude she was showing on the special. The main thing I got from her was that she has a lot of regret. Ashley H. really regrets not putting herself out there more and questioning everything so much. She feels that had she not fallen on her own sword she might have been the final woman standing, and I can’t say for sure that she’s not right. Brad said himself back in South Africa that he couldn’t believe he was saying goodbye to Ashley when just weeks before he had such strong feelings for her. One thing I love about the Tell All is to see how people change and grow from this experience. It was good to see Ashley H. has grown and learned a lot. She really did seem like a new woman to me.

Have I left anybody out of this blog…? Oh that’s right — Michelle. After ten years of hosting this show not much surprises me anymore. Michelle surprised me. The moment I introduced the ladies, the attacks on Michelle started. Instead of fighting back Michelle got very emotional and started crying. We took a commercial break, Michelle composed herself, and then I brought her up to the hot seat. She immediately lost it again and really broke down. It shocked all of this to see this strong personality so frail and vulnerable. Then things really got bad when Stacey attacked her and brought up her daughter. Let me say something to the folks out there who don’t have kids: You can say a lot of things about people, but questioning someone’s parenting skills or decisions is not smart. Michelle understandably got very defensive but also really lost it emotionally. She was literally shaking and hyperventilating. The bizarre thing was despite Michelle cowering and sobbing, the girls just kept right on talking and taking shots at her. That’s when I got a little protective and had to step in and calm things down a bit. We took another break so Michelle could try to calm herself down but she never really recovered. She had a rough day.

Before I wrap this up I want to talk a little bit about the best part of this season for me. During the special we showed a piece about the Henna School in South Africa. This was a local school Brad and I visited our first week there. As you saw this is an amazing school with some inspiring children. I’m happy to be apart of a family like The Bachelor that gives back like we do. Brad and I both agreed that was a day we’ll remember the rest of our lives. There is much more that can and needs to be done for these children. If you’d like to learn more or get involved, please go to our website or ABC.com.

We are a week away from the finale. A week away from seeing if Brad can exorcise his demons and find what he so desperately came back here to find. The finale next week is an amazing two-hour event that you won’t want to miss. Then stay tuned for a special edition of After The Final Rose immediately after the finale.

ABC press release:

SEASON FINALE


IT'S ONE OF THE MOST ROMANTIC AND DRAMATIC NIGHTS EVER ON ABC,
ON THE SEASON FINALE OF "THE BACHELOR," MONDAY, MARCH 14

And Immediately Following the Season Finale,
Brad Looks Back at the Dramatic Ending to His Journey to Find Love,
on "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose"

Ali & Roberto, Jason & Molly and Trista & Ryan Return to
Talk About Their Different Paths to Happiness During the Special
     

"Episode 1510" - In this dramatic conclusion, Brad, who came back for a second chance at love, prepares to make one of the most difficult choices of this life. His search for love is now narrowed down to two very different women - Chantal and Emily -- and he is falling in love with both of them. Now, after having his family meet them in Cape Town, South Africa, and under immense pressure, he must make one final heart-wrenching decision that could change his life forever. After three years of soul-searching, will he be able to propose to one of the women -- and will she say yes? -- on the season finale of "The Bachelor," MONDAY, MARCH 14 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

With his search for his soul mate over, emotions run high, as Brad, talks to Chris Harrison about both Chantal and Emily, taking us back to those final days in South Africa. Three couples who have found their own soul mates on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" - Ali & Roberto, Jason & Molly and Trista & Ryan -- return to share the very distinct ways in which they have found lasting happiness. Then the woman who received Brad's final rose joins him for the first time in public as a couple. They discuss the high and lows of their relationship, their near wedding plans that went awry, the difficulty of sustaining a relationship in secret and what the future holds for them. It's the emotional ending to Brad's heartfelt journey to finally find true love, on "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose," MONDAY, MARCH 14 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).

As Brad prepares to make the decision that might change his life forever, he reunites with his family who will meet the final two women and, hopefully, will be able to offer him some valuable advice. Chantal arrives first and immediately professes her love for Brad. She assures the family that she has learned from her divorce and now knows exactly whom she wants in her life. She is so certain that Brad is that man, she tells his family she is ready to marry him right now. Brad's family is drawn to Chantal's outgoing personality, and Brad is thrilled that they think she would fit right in with them.

Chantal has set the bar high for Emily, and when she arrives, she is filled with anxiety. The tension escalates when Brad reveals to his family that Emily has a daughter. When she recounts the heartbreaking story of how her ex-fiance died in a plane crash, there isn't a dry eye in the house. But Brad's family is now more concerned about whether he's really ready to step into fatherhood.

Brad's family is impressed by both women. Now -- more confused than ever -- Brad hopes that his final individual dates with the bachelorettes will bring clarity as to whom he should choose to be his future wife.

Brad's last date with Chantal, whom he considers a very strong woman, will test the love she feels for him as they go swimming with sharks. After slipping into wetsuits and submerging in shark-infested waters in a cage, Chantal is justifiably terrified. But she knows she must do whatever is necessary to prove her love for him. Later that night with the adrenaline rush behind them, Chantal opens up her heart to Brad. She may truly be the woman for him.

The next day Brad takes Emily on a helicopter ride soaring over Cape Town with gorgeous views of the Cape of Good Hope. Everything seems to be going well until Emily takes Brad by surprise, questioning whether he is really ready to be a father to her daughter. Brad leaves the date totally confused and with the biggest decision of his life facing him.

Brad came back to find love a changed man, ready to open himself up to love as he never had before. Will he complete his search with a proposal? And will the woman say yes?

The remaining two women are:

Chantal, 28, an executive assistant from Seattle, WA
Emily, 24, a children's hospital event planner from Charlotte, NC

Brad sounds like a changed man.. and i think either one of the woman he picked, he will have a great r/s with her to last for a lifetime.

Does anybody have any idea whom he will pick in the end? I have a feeling, Brad's going to pick Emily. :tup:

Who Won Brad Womack's Heart?



Brad Womack's first stint on The Bachelor in 2007 didn't end so well. The Texas bar owner famously walked away from his final two women, leaving both in tears and earning him a reputation as someone with a phobia of commitment.

This season Womack, 38, vowed he was a changed man and ready to find everlasting love. And he's been bursting at the seams for months, saying in interviews that he's in love with a special woman.

But is it 28-year-old Seattle executive assistant Chantal O'Brien, who made a lasting first impression on Womack when she declared, "This is for all the women in America," and slapped him across the face? Or did demure Charlotte, N.C., single mom Emily Maynard, 25, win his heart?

Keep reading to find out ...

On Monday's season 15 finale, viewers saw that while Womack had an undeniable affection for O'Brien, it was Maynard who got the final rose. Womack told O'Brien that she was not the one for him.

"I've fallen in love with someone else," he said as tears filled her eyes. Knowing she was heartbroken, he escorted her to her limo, said goodbye and waited for Maynard's arrival.

As dusk came to the vast South African sky, an emotional Womack then professed his love for Maynard.

"You're the one, Em. You're my once in a lifetime," Womack said. "Please let me be your once in a lifetime. Please let me be your best friend. Please let me protect you and your beautiful daughter, and please let me love you for the rest of your life. I love you, Emily. I am truly in love with you."

As Womack got down on his knee, Maynard held his face in her hands.

"Emily, please make me happier than I've ever been in my life and marry me," Womack said, his voice shaking with emotion.

"I would love to," Maynard replied, bending over and pulling Womack in for a passionate kiss, before allowing him to place a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring on her finger.

"You just made me the happiest girl in the world," Maynard said softly into Womack's ear as the two embraced.

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' and 'After The Final Rose'

Three years and two go-rounds as the Bachelor, and Brad Womack has finally found love. It’s not exactly as cut and dry as that, as you saw on the After the Final Rose special — but we’ll get to that in just a bit. Let’s back up to where this final episode landed us in the world. We left the bush of South Africa for the beautiful city of Cape Town. Our entire crew loved the One and Only resort right on the waterfront, just a ten-minute walk to the new stadium built for last summer’s World Cup. (Speaking of, a huge thanks to USA Soccer for having several of us as their guest when the U.S. national team played South Africa. They were nice enough to not only have us as their guests, but they were good about keeping it a secret that we were there.)

Brad didn’t stay at the resort with us; he was at a private house about ten minutes away. You’ve heard time and time again how much Brad’s family means to him but it was very evident just how much when you saw his reaction when they showed up at his house.

Both women made a great impression on his family. I thought Brad’s brothers did a good job of asking Brad the tough questions about Emily and what it really means to become a father. The proposal site was out in the Stellenbosch wine region about 45 minutes drive from Cape Town. We shot at Ernie Els’ vineyard. Thanks to the ladies out at the vineyard for keeping my glass full. The “Big Easy” knows how to make a big bold red — and I’m ready for that golf game any time, Ernie.

I want to jump forward a bit to the After the Final Rose special, which we shot about a week ago. Chantal hadn’t seen her breakup yet and was extremely emotional. Despite the fact that she says she’s now in love with another man and has moved on, you could tell she still had serious feelings for Brad and had a lot of questions to be answered. When Brad was sitting there with her you could feel the emotion and tension between them. She was really hurt and I’m not sure Brad really could have said anything to fix that. Chantal wanted to be assured that what she felt and what Brad said was real. As Chantal announced on the show she has found somebody since the show wrapped and has apparently fallen head over heels in love. I wish them the best and truly hope she finds what she’s looking for.

The proposal to Emily in South Africa was beautiful. As you saw on the special, what awaited Brad and Emily after The Bachelor wrapped was the surreal world of growing a relationship under the scrutiny of a desperate tabloid media, but that’s not their only obstacle. As she’ll admit, Emily is a bit insecure and had a lot of trouble watching Brad’s relationships with the other women — especially his journey with Chantal. Add to these issues the fact that week after week the two of them have to deal with ridiculous, irresponsible, and, at times, completely made up stories about each other in the tabloids, and you have a recipe for trouble. Despite all these negatives stacked against them, as you saw their resolve is strong and their love is true. They are fighting hard privately to make this work and I truly hope they do.

One thing that definitely helped them was bringing back the only people who know exactly what they’ve gone through. It was a bit bizarre but extremely cool to see Ali and Roberto, Jason and Molly, and Trista and Ryan all together on one stage at the same time. The stories and advice they had for Brad and Emily were perfect and exactly what they needed to hear. I know it really helped for them to realize they are part of a bigger family that is there to help and protect them.

It was another incredible season of The Bachelor that once again took us to some of the most beautiful places in the world, and believe it or not we’re about to do it again!  If you watched Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night you heard the official announcement that Ashley H. is our new Bachelorette. I’m very happy Ashley is coming back to be our Bachelorette, as I know she will be great and it will be a fascinating season. The new season of The Bachelorette will premiere May 23rd on ABC, and then season two of Bachelor Pad will premiere later this summer. So while we have a lot to look forward to and be excited about, I’m very hopeful Brad and Emily will keep fighting and make it work. On behalf of the hundreds of people that work so hard to make this show, I want to thank you for watching and making this franchise such a huge success. Beyond the great people on the show, my other great pleasure is hearing from so many fans about how much they love this show and what it means to them.

I'm going to say a man's heart is easy to read. Emily had a child to begin with and he knew about it, the reason why he kept her around was because he truly loved her. And i'm sure he figured that out himself.

:lol3: on the after the rose show! Emily is SOO wearing the pants in that relationship!  I knew she would be screaming mad once she saw all the footage if he did pick her.

 I'm glad she's smart enough to know not to go off and marry him till they have worked everything out.

 But whats that saying??" once a woman scorned???"  :lol:

HUGE pet peeve: Brad proposing to Emily and calls her "EM"  :groan:  for petes sake cant he call her by her formal name when proposing on national television!
zero, zilch, nada, nothing!

The Bachelor

By Muffins

The Bachelor star, Brad Womack was rushed to the hospital this afternoon after paramedics responded to an emergency 911 call. The 2 time star of the ABC reality show, The Bachelor was in a park when a medical issue came up.

Authorities have confirmed that Brad was in a park near his apartment in Texas when paramedics were called. He was seen walking around with his twin brother, Chad after help arrived.

Brad has been transported to a hospital in Austin with a non-life threatening medical issue. This is confirmed by Brad's rep who insists that everything is fine.

Just a week ago Brad was finally able to reveal that Emily was the lady who had stolen his heart on the latest season of The Bachelor, although rumors have been swirling that the relationship is already in trouble. Although Brad and Emily say that everything is fine, a body language expert broke down the After the Rose Ceremony program found clear indications that Brad and Emily can barely tolerate each other.

Time will tell, but for now TVGrapevine.com hopes that Bachelor Brad makes a speedy recovery from his mystery illness.
