Returning 'Bachelor' says he's 'changed'

January 3, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
It was a few seasons ago on "The Bachelor" that Brad Womack entered the show as a single man -- and that's just how he left it.Now Womack has been invited back for another season and he swears he is ready to find love this time around.

Womack made a name for himself by doing something no contestant on the show had ever done: he rejected both of his final two women.

He sent bachelorettes Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas home alone, which meant he ended up solo himself.

Producers reached out to Womack and asked if he'd like a do-over.

He initially declined, but eventually had a change of heart

"I'd like to think I've changed immensely," Womack said. "I don't want to get too deep, but I walked away empty handed last time. It allowed me to do some self reflection. I realized if I keep having these walls, I'd wind up alone."

The women in this new group of bachelorettes are not pulling any punches when it comes to finding out Womack's intentions.

"So have I changed? Immensely," Womack said. "I really have. I feel more confident and much more happier."

"The Bachelor" premieres at 8 p.m. Monday on ABC7.
