What Kind of Woman is Brad Womack Looking For?

Well he's about to tell you for himself!  Brad Womack answered his third Facebook fan question today on his fanpage.  Click the photo to play the video!


Well he certainly does talk a LOT about wanting to be himself.  Listen up ladies: There is no changing this man so don't even try!  I do think it's important to be yourself, but you should be at least a little concerned about bringing happiness to someone else as well.  Hopefully, he's discovered that too.  I sincerely hope he finds his best friend and love of his life, and from the sound of it, he seems to think he's on the right track!

Former 'Bachelorette' Contestant, Julien Hug, Found Dead

Some very, very sad news to report today.  Former "Bachelorette" contestant, Julien Hug, was found dead on Wednesday, November 3rd. 


The 35-year-old season 5 contestant's father confirmed the horrible news.  His father said that Julien's body was found in the remote Pinyon Pines area about 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles.  Kiptyn Locke, one of his "Bachelorette" castmates said that Hug was known to be an avid sky diver and hiker.  Jillian Harris, who was the "Bachelorette" that Julien was competing for, said that she is "heartbroken" over the news.


My prayers and condolences to Julien's family.


Brad Womack 'The Bachelor' Answers 2nd Facebook Fan Question

Brad Womack, the next "Bachelor", is answering the top ten questions in videos on his Facebook fan page.  He posted the answer to his second question today: Are you ready to find love, and if yes how do you know?


So what do you think of that answer?  I really, really want to believe him!  I hope he genuinely wants to find someone to share his life with.  I thought it was funny that he said he wasn't cut out to be a "single guy".  Ha ha!  He's like the poster boy for single guys, but let's hope this changes for him.

Ali & Roberto dress up for Halloween!

Ali and Roberto are...Mickey & Minnie Mouse for Halloween!


Wow, Ali looks adorable!  Can you believe she got Roberto to wear black tights?!  That is one secure man!  The happy couple says they are planning on taking some lucky kids trick-or-treating tonight.  She posted the picture and her plans on her Facebook fan page earlier today.


Last night, they reportedly hit up the Hard Rock Cafe in San Diego for a Halloween party.  They wore the same costumes you see here. 


LATE BREAKING NEWS: Ali just posted this on her Facebook page: "I need help from all my San Diego friends! R & I have decided to move! ♥ our place (Jillian just designed it & made it look beautiful), but we live in an industrial neighbor and nothing is really within walking distance. We want to be in a fun SD neighborhood so we can meet new ppl & have a favorite coffee shop :) Being able to walk to good places to eat & fun dive/sports bars is a must! Suggestion?"


They are moving from their love nest so soon?  Strange, but hey, if that will make them happy, hopefully Jillian can help design their new place too!

Brad Womack answers your questions on Facebook

Brad Womack, "The Bachelor", wants to quell your fears about him appearing on the show for the second time.  He's answering the top 10 most asked questions by his fans on Facebook.


As you can see, the first question Brad answers is: "What has changed about you since you were "The Bachelor" the first time that will make your experience different this time?"


I wasn't too thrilled with his response to be honest.  I mean, "what hasn't changed" and "I'm more open now" would mean a lot more with some specific examples...but maybe I expect too much!  I'm still excited to see him go through this whole process again. 


Brad plans to post his answers to the other 9 remaining questions, and I can't wait to share those answers with you too!  Also, check out the comments on his facebook fan page, some are brutal!
