“The Bachelor” 2011 will be an unusual show. Season 15 is a first for second chances and that second chance is being given to Brad Womack. Viewers, and even suspecting contestants, have scoffed at the idea of “Bachelor” producers granting Brad Womack another try at finding true love. What, besides the obvious, makes this season unusual?
A Few of the “Usual” Elements in “The Bachelor” 2011
In spite of the normal parts of “The Bachelor” which include over-the-top romance, exotic locales, fancy clothes and jewelry, fighting among contestants, and a lot of women crying, there are the unusual elements that will come with it.
“The Bachelor” of 2011 Will Be Watched Closely
We’ll see what’s been reported ad nauseum, “The Bachelor” contestant who boldly steps out of the limo and lays a big smack on Brad, and not with her lips! The show will have a ton of unusual things happen in this “Bachelor” season when it comes to just about everything. Viewers have seen Brad Womack before and will be watching him closely to see how he reacts to the women in the 2011 cast. Will he listen to them? Will he balk at the slightest move towards being emotionally intimate? Will Brad stall making progress romantically on the show, and will he show any of the signs he did when he dumped Jenni Croft and Deanna Pappas on “The Bachelor” in 2007?
Formats Unusual for “The Bachelor”
It’s also unusual for the show’s producers to have 30 contestants for a bachelor to choose from, but they’re going for it in season 15. The first episode is suppose to eliminate 10 contestants, which is a fair amount for the first week. First impressions better be real good this “Bachelor” season. Will the woman who slapped Brad still be around or find herself going home that first evening?
Perhaps the most unusual part about “The Bachelor” in 2011 is that it will be a bigger investment with viewers. Brad Womack is invested the most in his second chance, but fans want to see true love with a happy ending in 2011. The idea of Brad duplicating his last “Bachelor” run is the worst possible thing that could happen.
Producers have outdone themselves each season with “The Bachelor” with drama and intrigue peppered with scandal. This is a brilliant and “unusual” move for them to mix it up a bit. Will Brad Womack make them glad they went this route for 2011?
