Brad Womack’s dates with the final three ladies all ended up as ‘fantasy suite’ overnights this week on The Bachelor. Brad took to his blog to let viewers in on some of what happened off screen in South Africa. Keep reading for highlights…
On his weekly People blog, Brad Womack enthused about staying on the game reserve surrounded by exotic animals. He then launches into the topic of overnight dates, saying that they are free of crews and cameras, and that what happens is up to the couple. He said that being able to talk to the women alone gave him a lot of clarity.
As for the dates themselves, Brad blogged, “The women and I were able to go on some amazing dates. A safari, riding elephants and a helicopter tour – all in one week! Whose life is this?! Speaking of the dates, being with Chantal and Emily in South Africa really brought us closer.”
But what about Ashley? Of the lady who was sent on her way, Brad wrote, “Saying goodbye to Ashley was extremely difficult. Everyone knows what a connection Ashley and I had that started from day one. I remember watching her drive away – I was so sad. I didn’t think I had made a mistake. I was just riddled with questions in my mind. What happened along the way to our relationship? Could I have done something differently? Does Ashley know how much I care about her as a person? It was like I was watching a lifelong friend drive away, not knowing if I would ever see her again. ”
As for the remainder of this season’s The Bachelor, Brad enthused, “It’s almost here! Only two weeks left and all of you can share with me one of the best days of my entire life. I’m counting the minutes until the day I can tell anyone who will listen who I’ve fallen in love with!”
