Bachelor Brad Womack is getting a second chance at love — but is it warranted?
If you ask jilted former Bachelor contestants DeAnna Pappas, 28, and Jenni Croft, the answer is maybe.
Reuniting with the women on Monday's premiere of the ABC hit, Womack, 37, reveals he's a changed man.
"[At the end of my 2007 season], everything came crashing down like a ton of bricks," Womack says. "I watched the finale and I felt like a jerk. I know that the only person I have to blame is myself. It's taken a lot of therapy and a lot of time, but I've…learned to open up my heart. I want to prove to everybody I've changed." (Watch a clip above.)
Pappas — now engaged to Stephen Stagliano — had words of warning for her ex's potential new suitors.
"It's safe to say it's a concern of mine that two girls won't be left in the end with broken hearts," Pappas told host Chris Harrison when asked if she thought Womack was a changed man. "I am skeptical, but I do believe he is capable [of finding love]."
Added Croft: "If I knew I dated someone who had hurt someone in the past, my guard would be up 100 percent. You're going to have to break through their walls for sure."
After he was ceremoniously slapped in the face by Chantal, things got marginally better for Womack when he gave Southern charmer Ashley the first impression rose.
Other bachelorettes to keep an eye on this season? Fang-toothed Madison, single mom Emily and Radio City Rockette Keltie, all of whom received roses.
