In episode three of ABC‘s The Bachelor, Brad Womack saw many of the women in the mansion open up to him more than ever. He experienced two one-on-one dates, a group date, and had one bachelorette decide to leave! Keep reading to find out what Brad had to say after the fact in his blog about episode three…
Brad began his People blog by noting how many revelations there were this week from the ladies in episode three of The Bachelor – it was pretty heavy at times.
The emotional episode began with his first one-on-one date which was at Capitol Records with Ashley S, who opened up to Brad about her father after they sang a Seal song together. Of this date, Brad shared, “I dreaded singing with such a pretty woman, but Ashley was so much fun and instantly calmed me down. The fact that she allowed me to relax and have such a great time doing something I feared told me quite a bit about her. We both laughed so hard the entire time! Meeting Seal was indescribable. His level of talent and the way he sings so effortlessly made me realize what a superstar is and what extraordinary talent he has. ”
Brad noted that he had a lot of fun filming the movie on the group date. Of course, Shawntel N shone during the shoot and ultimately got the rose that night – this was also when he first began to notice Michelle’s aggression. In his blog, Brad commented about the time he spent at the afterparty withÂ Chantal, saying, “Hearing how she felt among the other women made me realize for the first time what all of the women were going through. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have feelings for someone while having to watch that person explore other relationships. I give all the credit in the world to most of the women for staying strong throughout the process. I don’t know if I would have that strength. Chantal also told me about the passing of her father. This hit close to home because she waited too long to try to fix the broken relationship she had with her biological father. That conversation opened my eyes to many of my relationships â€“ especially the one with my father. ”
He also discussed in his blog how emotional his date with Emily was on episode three. She finally told him about the tragedy from her past, and about her daughter. Brad blogged, “Hearing everything she told me made my head swim. I can’t fathom losing someone like that. She obviously loved the man very much and it’s hard for me to comprehend the tragedy. On a positive note, I was overwhelmed with joy when I heard Emily has a daughter. I felt like she and I made a breakthrough that night â€“ one I had been anxiously awaiting. ”
Of course, there was more drama in store for Brad at the cocktail party and rose ceremony when Madison first showed signs of doubt, and then ultimately decided to exit the competition. Brad talked about his feelings in his blog, saying, “When Madison decided to leave, I was surprised and very disappointed. I was hoping to get to know her better. I can only assume that she has many qualities that I would have liked. Obviously, I’m someone who can commend a person for walking away from something (or someone) that doesn’t feel right. I’m proud of Madison for admitting that she simply didn’t have feelings that warranted her possibly receiving a rose that could have gone to another woman.”
