“Bachelor” Brad Womack might have been in a relationship when this season of ABC’s The Bachelor started filming. The “Bachelor” famously said he hasn’t been in a relationship since his first time on the show. Keep reading for more details about his rumored relationship…
According to Life & Style Magazine, Brad wasn’t single when he came back on “The Bachelor” for a second chance at finding love.
The magazine reports former “Bachelor” contestant Bettina Bell was dating Brad. Bettina was in the final three group of girls Brad chose his first season as “The Bachelor.” She tells Life & Style she started dating Brad last year, but got dumped when he started filming this season of “The Bachelor.”
“He was pursuing me like crazy, and then out of nowhere he went MIA,” Bettina tells the magazine.
Brad has previously told Life & Style he hasn’t “been in a true relationship since the show ended.”
According to Life & Style, Bettina says the two reconnected after Brad didn’t pick anyone at the final rose ceremony and had been dating for more than five months.
Bettina tells Life & Style she was shocked to find out Brad was going on the show again.
“He said it was a bad experience. He was really negative about it,” she says of Brad’s experience on “The Bachelor,” but admits, “The show has 18 million viewers. It can open a lot of doors.”
According to Life & Style, Brad says he decided to go on “The Bachelor” again because he didn’t “find anyone who captured his heart” the first time around.
Do you think Brad will find love this time?
“The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8/7 c on ABC.
