The night had finally come to meet the bachelor. Getting ready was totally different than what I’m used to. It was kind of nice to be treated like a star. I could get use that lifestyle.
I put the final touches on my gorgeous ensemble, took one more glance in the mirror to give myself a quick wink and gun wave for good luck, and headed down to the limo.
On my way to the mansion, there were so many thoughts running through my head. What is the bachelor like? What if we don’t hit it off? What are the women going to be like? I’m a very polarizing person so do I come in full force as Bubba? Or do I come out little by little? I then realized I was over-analyzing everything. Out of the thousands of women who tried out for the show, I was chosen. So when I stepped out of the limo, I took a deep breath and said to myself “let’s do this!”
Since I am a brutally honest person, I’m not even going to try and sugar coat it. When I met the bachelor, I just didn’t feel the chemistry. I could sort of sense the same thing from him, but I didn’t want to give up. I told myself I was gonna give it a shot when I got inside. Now that I had met the bachelor and the easy part was over, it was time to meet the women. DUN, DUN, DUUUUUUUUUUN!!!!!
I entered the house only to be met by pairs of eyes sizing me up and down, and it was at that particular moment I came to the conclusion that there was no holding back. This was MY time. MY moment to shine. I’ve been through a lot of struggles in my life, but I believed the universe would unfold as it was meant to be, and it was time that these ladies and the world knew exactly who I am.
I wasn’t with the ladies very long when I realized it was going to be a long night. I made the most of the experience, and I had some good times with the other bachelorettes.
Then the time came for the rose ceremony. It was so surreal to be standing up there with the ladies. I mean, you watch it on TV but to be able to actually experience it was pretty remarkable.
Although my time on The Bachelor Canada was short but sweet, I’m very blessed to have had this opportunity. It’s a shame I didn’t put more effort into the bachelor to try and stay on the show a tad longer. But with everything said and done, I had a wicked time. I wish the ladies who did make it through to the other rounds the best of luck, and hope that Brad finds his “true love.” To the ladies who didn’t make it, stay strong sistas!!! Our Mr. Right is out there somewhere!
