AboutDeANNA GETS A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE WHEN SHE BECOMES "THE BACHELORETTE" Starting May 19th, 2008 on ABC
Millions of viewers watched DeAnna Pappas, 26, suffer through a painful, last-minute rejection by Brad Womack on the last season of The Bachelor -- earning her the sympathy of women everywhere. Now DeAnna will have the last laugh as the tables are turned and she gets to choose from among 25 bachelors in her own bid for true love, when The Bachelorette returns to the ABC lineup this summer. This is the fourth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series.
The brunette, brown-eyed real estate agent from Newnan, Georgia, became an immediate fan favorite and she was the final woman remaining on the finale of The Bachelor in November. The ending proved to be a huge shocker, though, when Womack didn't select any woman -- the first time in "Bachelor" history.
DeAnna demonstrated her assertiveness and independent nature during The Bachelor, setting her apart from the other women. She is an interesting combination of Greek ancestry on her father's side and a mix of many ethnicities -- including Native American -- on her mother's. Growing up in Kentucky with her older brother, Thomas, and younger sister, Chrissy, DeAnna's parents divorced when she was six. Her mother's ultimately fatal battle with cancer meant that DeAnna was raised primarily by her aunt and grandmother, and when her mother died -- DeAnna was 12 -- she moved to Georgia to live with her father.
Given this family history, DeAnna wants to make sure that she gets married and plays an active part in her children's lives. She truly believes, after coming so close on The Bachelor, that she will be able to find that special someone from the 25 lucky guys on The Bachelorette.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, The Bachelorette is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, David Bohnert and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.:
