Brad Womack walked away from “The Bachelor” without a woman — a decision that Jen Schefft completely supports. She did the same thing in 2005, which she explained in her book Better Single than Sorry.
Luckily Brad didn’t get such a backlash from the public, who have come to expect reality dating shows to have a happily ever after. “It’s entirely possible to meet 25 beautiful women (or 25 handsome men) and not fall in love with any of them . . . in a matter of six weeks. It just means they would rather be on their own than in a relationship with the wrong person.”
Schefft observes a double standard from viewers who accepted his decision — while she got painful comments like she was making the biggest mistake of her life, and that she’d be single forever. “When it comes to relationships and breakups, society treats women and men very differently.”
