In this dramatic conclusion, Brad, who came back for a second chance at love, prepares to make one of the most difficult choices of this life. His search for love is now narrowed down to two very different women – Chantal and Emily — and he is falling in love with both of them. Now, after having his family meet them in Cape Town, South Africa, and under immense pressure, he must make one final heart-wrenching decision that could change his life forever. After three years of soul-searching, will he be able to propose to one of the women — and will she say yes? — on the season finale of “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, MARCH 14 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Brad visits Chantal's hometown of Mercer Island, WA. The two visit Alki Beach and Space Needle before meeting the family. Chantal's father, Mike O'Brien, a formerSeattle Seahawks defensive back and now owns a company, O'Brien Auto Group with dealerships across the Seattle area. Billie Jo O'Brien is the mother of Chantal. O'Brien House is crazy impressive.
O'Brien told his divorced daughter Chantal, 28, to audition for The Bachelor about six months ago. According to Mike's interview with a local newspaper, the Bremerton Patriot, Chantal auditioned against candidates with 200 or 300 in the Seattle metropolitan area and not make the cut for season 15. But do the show when she lost a few thousand women in Los Angeles.
The picture of Brad hugging a blonde while crying ignited a lot of speculation recently. As soon as I saw the photo, I immediately remembered Ali’s season when she spared Chris’ feelings by letting him know before the Final Rose Ceremony that he wasn’t the one. However, in this case, an unidentified blond seems to be comforting Brad while he’s going through some sort of an emotional catharsis. Although we can’t see the girl’s face, she seems to be Emily Maynard.
We also know that in episode nine Brad spends overnight dates with Emily, Chantal and Ashley in South Africa. Other details are not clear at this point. What we are left with is Brad’s overnight date with Emily in South Africa or the last date before the Final Rose Ceremony. If you think about it, it is very possible that Emily Maynard told Brad she wasn’t really into this relationship.
In episode 3 – Emily Maynard and Brad take a private jet to a vineyard in Santa Maria. Of course, there is an emotional scene when Emily tells Brad her tragic story. There is an outside possibility that Brad is moved by Emily’s story of the loss of her boyfriend. However, the inconsistency that comes to mind is that Emily would be experiencing the catharsis, not Brad. Hence, it is unlikely that this photo derives from this episode.
In episode 7 – Shawntel and Emily apparently share a 2-on-1 date with Brad. Again, it’s not likely that Brad would get that distraught during a 2-on-1 date with Shawntel and Emily. For one thing, they wouldn’t have enough time to open up with each other. Such dates are often more playful and superficial.
