Meet the new 'Bachelor'

Bachelor_lThere shouldn’t be any shortage of nightspots where the bachelorettes can drink on the 11th edition of ABC’s The Bachelor. That’s because the man that the gals will be fighting for is Brad Womack (pictured), 34, who co-owns four bars in Austin, Texas, with his brothers. (Brad’s got a twin named Chad, how cute, and another brother who ruins the rhyme scheme named Wesley, both of whom are married. Sorry, girls.) Now, I like the idea of a self-made entrepreneur Bachelor instead of the usual princes, heirs, and out-of-work actors; maybe he won’t come equipped with the usual sense of smug self-entitlement (though, when a couple dozen women are throwing themselves at you, maybe you can’t help but get a swelled, um, head). I just wish ABC would stop referring to him in press materials as "The Bachelor‘s own ‘McSteamy.’" C’mon, ABC, that well’s run dry. Trying to hitch your aging reality show to the Grey’s Anatomy McBandwagon that way just smacks of desperation.

What do y’all think? Is this guy a keeper? Will you be tuning in to watch him generate a long list of exes in Texas when the show premieres on Sept. 24?

    He’s got beautiful blue eyes. I really can’t tell if I like him or not, I’ll have to see when the show premieres. I’m the type of person that likes to know about the vibes that another person sends me before I decide if I like them or not.
    But as I said he’s got beautiful blue eyes!
    I can’t wait for the new season! I love The Bachelor.

  • Stephen

    He looks so stiff and awkward in that pic. Like that guy in eighth grade who takes you to the dance and just showed up at the door. That aside, it doesn’t matter what he looks like, he and his bachelorette will be finished before the season finale airs.

  • Jenny

    Something about the facts that the guy has a scary mustache and that his bar is most famous for being the hangout of the Real World kids makes me think ew.

  • to jenny

    haha good point but maybe say ewww cuz for a moment I thought you meany entertainment weekly

  • lw

    um, ICK.

  • Jesse

    There is something very “1970’s porn star” about him. If he had curly hair or a mullet he’d be spot-on perfect!

  • mike

    Speaking of the well running dry, hadn’t everyone had enough of the fake dating shows?

  • Richard

    Jesse, I agree with you, except I would have said “1970’s Gay Porn Star”.

  • Snooks

    Craptastic. Is that a picture of a humanoid? He’s a little stiff…

  • blue girl

    i’m sorry i have to disagree with most of the previous posts. i think he’s pretty hot. yes, he looks a little stiff, but maybe that’s because he’s a normal working, self-made man who is not used to being in front of a camera.

  • ellie

    oh my god, he’s gorgeous!! i don’t even like blond men, but i am going to check it out when the show premiers!!

  • Richard

    OK, I take back my “gay porn star” comment. But look what an ill fit his suit is. Look at the elbows of both arms. Even the arm that is not really bent. WTF?

  • Telly B

    Another bland, uninteresting, plastic-looking, handsome-in-a-very-inoffensive,non-edgy kinda way white Bachelor!
    Seriously, there’s no fricking way that ABC can tell me that they haven’t been able to find hot, appealing, interesting men of color who would be perfect for The Bachelor.
    Is it really that hard to have an Asian, Latino or Black Bachelor?

  • Shamrock

    Why oh why is this show still on the air?

  • Simon

    I agree, why is this show still on? In fact, why is half the junk on tv still on? Let it go ABC – no one is watching The Bachelor anymore!
