Brad Womack wants another shot at finding love on national television. The former Bachelor from Season 11 is returning to the hit ABC show for the 15th season and promises he has become more “self-aware” and is ready to choose a mate.
Brad attended Dancing With the Stars last night, where it was announced he would be the next Bachelor.
Back in 2007, Brad failed to propose to either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas.
He has admitted to working through his commitment issues.
“More importantly, that [Bachelor] process is difficult,” Brad tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing today on her talk show. “I thought that I was as open as I was supposed to be and clearly I wasn’t. I walked away and wound up all alone and left two girls standing there.”
So why does Brad feel the second time is the charm?
“Because I believe it can work,” the 37-year-old handsome bachelor replied. “I don’t care if people call me an idiot or don’t believe those words coming out of my mouth. I truly believe that it can work. So here are 25 to 30 women that I never, ever would meet in regular life, and I’m clearly doing something wrong. I’m still single. So why not? I really do believe that this can work.”
Brad assured Ellen he will not leave the season without finding true love first.
“Again, I take this very seriously,” he said. “I know it’s tough to believe it’s a television show but… I am a completely different person. I don’t want to visit that thought.”
