Chantal O’Brien seemed to many to be the likely choice for The Bachelor‘s Brad Womack last season, but he ultimately chose Emily Maynard instead. Chantal then had dibs as The Bachelorette for this season, but the spot went to Ashley Hebert. Why? Keep reading to find out what happened with Chantal after The Bachelor season ended…
The Bachelor’s Chantal O’Brien fell for Brad Womack, but was left hurt and devastated when he proposed to Emily at the final rose ceremony. Chantal was then offered the opportunity to appear on the next season of The Bachelorette and take another stab at finding true love. However, it was second-runner up Ashley Hebert who wound up greeting the limos this season.
According to Hollywood Life, a source inside the show assured them that Chantal had signed contracts with ABC to appear as The Bachelorette, but backed out. It seems Chantal had fallen in love all on her own during the period of time that The Bachelor played out on television screens everywhere.
Apparently, Chantal was serious enough about her new man, Jeff Razore, that when ABC flew her out to Los Angeles to convince her to go through with her appearance on The Bachelorette, it was obvious she just wasn’t into finding someone new.
Chantal is reportedly engaged to Jeff Razore now, but that doesn’t mean the show has taken their offer completely off the table. The source claims that ABC would still happily have Chantal as their bachelorette should her current relationship not work out.
