They can’t edit who you are—you hand fed the show and the producers what they needed.
You’re going to be on this season of ‘The Bachelor,'” I was like, “Ooooh. I don’t think this is something I want to do.” My sister made me go. I’m from the South, so the fact that he is a true Southern gentleman—very polite, very manly, always ‘yes ma’am,’ ‘thank you,’ ‘how are you doing.’ He always cares so much more about others. That was always the kind of guy I was looking for—someone who would put a woman first. How did you recover from the shock after the final episode? I didn’t tell anybody about the outcome of the show besides my sister and my brother and my father.
On April 9th and 10th, De Anna will be one of the guests of honor at the Reality Rocks Expo, a two-day conference celebrating the phenomenon of reality TV. ” I had nooo intentions of going on “The Bachelor.” I had never even seen the show. I don’t want to do a reality show—no thank you.” I had a bad taste in my mouth after watching Flava Flav and whatnot. [The producers] kept calling and checking in on me. I’m still sad and angry and I can’t get over you if you continue to confuse me like this.” After that, there was a long period we didn’t talk. How far is what viewers see from what actually happened? I don’t care what situation you were in—you did it or you said it.
To get ready, she sat down with The Frisky to talk about her upcoming wedding, what reality TV auditions are really like, and, of course, whether Brad and Emily will make it. I dated this guy off and on for three years and a few months before the auditions, he dumped me. I had this friend who was an avid fan of the show and she called me one day and said, “Oh my gosh, they’re doing auditions for ‘The Bachelor’ in Atlanta. Of course, I thought they were genuinely asking but they were calling to see if I was still single. How would you feel if we gave you this opportunity? If you offer it to me, I would love to do it.” I didn’t know they’d picked me to be “The Bachelorette” until they told me on the “Ellen De Generes Show.” I was super excited. Before, he called periodically and would say, “I miss you. Whether they clip it or leave out a certain thing—unfortunately you knew what you were getting into. Sometimes I hate it when people blame the editing, though I do understand the frustration of it.

De Anna Pappas has had a long, strange ride on “The Bachelor.” First, she fell for Brad Womack, only for him to walk away without proposing to either woman at his final rose ceremony. I never thought in a million years they would choose me. My sister lived with me in my house in Georgia, so she saw me cry every single day. The whole time the show was on, I held onto the idea, “Maybe Brad is seeing that he made a mistake.” See, I didn’t get any answers. We spent the last night together before the final rose ceremony. When the show was airing, I was so upset and confused.
Next, she came back as “The Bachelorette” and fell in love with quirky snowboarder Jesse Csincak, only to find out they weren’t compatible after all. He put me in the limo and said, “I’ll see you tomorrow … It’s going to be a good day.” I truly thought he was going to choose me. I was really hanging onto something until I saw him at “After the Final Rose” and he was like, “No, my decision still stands.” At that point, he was back together with his ex-girlfriend so a lot of things came to be clear to me.
