The Bachelorette: Drunk Tim Speaks Out

May 29, 2011 08:54 AM by Candace Young

Viewers of the first episode of Ashley Hebert‘s season of The Bachelorette won’t soon forget the first impression made by contestant Tim McCormack, the liquor distributor, who got drunk and passed out well before the rose ceremony. How does Tim view the situation now? Keep reading to find out…

Tim McCormack made a dubious first impression on The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert, last Monday night after his overindulgence in alcohol rendered him speechless at times, and slurring at best. Tim, who ironically works as a liquor distributor, eventually passed out cold, leaving a disbelieving Ashley to recruit the help of the other guys to rouse him long enough to send him packing in a limo.

Tim recently spoke to media via conference call about the embarrassing outing, admitting that he was unable to even view the episode in it’s entirety, calling it too painful to watch.

He claims that alcohol had never affected him that way before, and attributed his condition to a combination of alcohol, adrenaline, and nerves.  He spoke of having a couple of toasts during the limo ride to the mansion, noting that although he cannot pinpoint exactly how much he drank that night, he didn’t think he looked right emerging from the limo.

Tim told media that he wishes the man he had shown producers in the casting process had come through that night.  He describes the morning after as a giant fog, noting that he consumed enough Gatorade to fuel a football field to combat the hangover.

When asked about his issues with Jeff, the masked contestant, Tim stood by his conviction that it is extremely odd for someone to wear a mask, particularly when trying to make a nice first impression. Tim noted, however, that for him, it’s like throwing stones in a glass house at this point.
