#Quote
1[Of Season 15's The Bachelor (2002)]: What we have this year instead of scandals are unbelievably compelling, tragic stories that you will absolutely be captivated by. It's a different group than we're used to, a little more mature in their life experiences.
2[About the drama of the traditional The Bachelor (2002) format]: The funny thing is there's a lot of drama and my guess is Brad doesn't know or hasn't seen about 95 percent of it. It's definitely one of those seasons where he's not privy to a lot of it and I think he's going to be shocked by what's going on behind the scenes or over at the girls' house.
3[Of Brad Womack]: There's a large group out there that's like, "Screw this guy. I hope he falls on his face and gets what's coming to him", and he does.
4Strangers come up to me in bars and tell me about their sex lives. I'm thinking, 'You think I can make it better somehow?'"
5[About The Bachelor (2002)'s comparison to other long-running reality shows]: It's Survivor (2000) meets Big Brother (2000). It's an homage to our fans.
6[on his early career]: What most people don't know is that this goes back to my true passion - live TV, I started there as a local sportscaster in Oklahoma City and that will always be my love. It's kind of what I live for.
