How was it reliving everything on Women Tell All?

It’s been great. Honestly, I was looking forward to it and I was very excited to see all the girls and to see Sean again and it just seemed like once I was sent home it’s like I woke up from this dream. Like it happened but I couldn’t talk about it and I didn’t have anybody that could relate to me.


So it was this experience that I went through but it was over and life carries on and it was very exciting and cathartic to see everybody and to bring everything back to the surface. It was wonderful. I have no hard feelings and so I loved every second of it.O


Are you ready to start dating again?

I’m not in any bring rush to figure it out. I think it’ll just happen when it does. What I’ve learned is you can’t force it obviously. This show was a testament that you can’t force something that isn’t there and I think it’ll just happen when I least expect it.

How has it been going from the fantasy life of traveling the world with The Bachelor to reality?

You’re on this whirlwind of a trip and you’re traveling to all these incredible locations and going on these amazing dates and meeting great people and then you’re just thrust back into reality and so it’s very much like waking up from a dream. And it’s like where am I, what happened, who can talk to me about it. But it’s ok.

Who do you think is a better fit for Sean? Catherine or Lindsay?

I think they’re both great fits to be completely honest and I love both girls and that’s not me just being politically correct, they’re both great friends of mine and I was very close to Lindsay.

But I think from the footage that I saw on Women Tell All, it seems like he has a really big connection with Catherine. A strong connection. And he said something in the show about wanting to find someone that he can just laugh with because he wants to fill his home with laughter and bring his kids up the same way that his parents did and I see that with him and Catherine. In that video they’re always goofing around and giggling and you just see something really genuine there. So I hope it goes well for either girl.

Would you be open to being the next Bachelorette?

I would be open to it and I would consider it because the experience was so incredible for me and because I learned so much about myself but I also know that it’s not easy and it’s an incredibly emotionally taxing experience and it’s not just speed dating where it’s over in one night and you pick a girl or a guy you want to go out with it. You’re in it for the long haul. It’s serious and not for the faint of heart. I would have to consider it but I think it’s great and I believe in the process.
