"Bachelor" host Chris Harrison is a man of many promises. More than once, he's promised viewers that they would be treated to "the most shocking moment" in show history. At this point, fans should expect a live sacrifice to take place at the stately "Bachelor" manor.
So when Harrison announced on his Twitter page last week that he will be attending tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" show with the next "Bachelor" star, rumors started running rampant. Would a contestant on the Ali Fedotowsky edition of "The Bachelorette" step up to the plate and become the hunted? Would the show go back to its roots and find a complete unknown to fill the role? Or would a former "Bachelor" star return to the show to try to find love again?
Turns out it's the latter.
Brad Womack, the Texas bar owner who famously chose no one during the 11th season of the hit ABC show, was introduced as the hunted for the new season of "The Bachelor," which is expected to premiere in early 2011.
Womack caused controversy when he rejected both Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas (who would later become "The Bachelorette"), saying he didn't feel a connection with either of them. Reaction to Womack's decision was swift, with many fans accusing him of wasting the show's time.
But Womack apparently doesn't believe that - he has said in interviews that he still believes in a fairy tale romance, and that he'd be willing to give the show another chance. Well, here's his chance.
What do you think of Brad Womack as the next "Bachelor" star?
