ABC says that Womack has spent the better part of the three years (since he chose neither finalist Jenni Croft nor DeAnna Pappas) working on his body and mind to become a better man. Womack “started therapy to learn what problems were confronting him. He
desperately wanted to fix whatever it was that wasn’t allowing him to
let people into his life.”

“For the last three years he has undergone intensive therapy, looking at who he was in a quite painful journey of self-awareness. In the meantime, he put his head down and worked – buying and selling three companies and building one from the ground up. And although he has dated during this time, he hasn’t had a serious relationship.”

What do you think, “Bachelor” fans? Is Womack really a changed man? Or will he buckle under the pressure to find a wife among his 30 eligible Bachelorettes?
