DeAnna is 'The Bachelorette'

Pappas_lThis just in: DeAnna Pappas — the brunette who took Bachelor Brad Womack’s decision to stay single the hardest — will be the new Bachelorette when the show returns this summer. According to the ABC press release, the 26-year-old real estate agent from Georgia is assertive and independent, and enjoys cooking, bartending, white water rafting and camping. She has also "traveled all over Europe, putting her Greek ancestry to good use." "Interested and eligible men" — I love that they felt the need to spell out eligible — can throw their hats into the casting ring by logging on to or calling 866-739-3150.

Personally, I’m all for DeAnna being the Bachelorette because (a) it’s always more fun when the contestants know something about the Bachelor or Bachelorette and (b) you know if this show is going to have a full run, DeAnna will need to lead more than one man on. Let’s see how she handles that. (I suggest she revist my translation of Brad’s psychobabble.)

    Have to wonder if she plans to “remain” single and kick all her would be made for reality tv suiters under the proverbal bus. Revenge after all, is best served on network TV.

    She “traveled all over Europe, putting her Greek ancestry to good use.”
    I love this phrase! What does it even mean?! Did she make Baklava for French schoolchildren? Did she hand out Gyro’s in Belgium?

    Oh, goodie. More eyelashes batting “at the speed of a hummingbird’s wings” (my favorite Slezak line).

    I really love that dress that she had on her show. If anyone knows where it is from i would love to know.I have a wedding to attend and i would love that dress..

    I can’t watch the bachelorette any longer. Deanna made the biggest mistake of her life letting Jeremy go. I hope that they give Jeremy a chance to become the Bachelor. He deserves to be happy too!

    DeAnna made the biggest mistake by picking the wrong person. You don’t want security just fun.You let two of the best men go. Jeremy has no job after skatboarding. Your family like Jason. I was so disapointed watching the last episode. I was so disappointed and disguested. DeAnna counldn’t know what she wants, not marriage and forever. Her decision will not last.
