Chris Harrison reunited with an old friend and former two-time “Bachelor” star Brad Womack.
November 14, 2022 Harrison shared a picture with Womack on Instagram.
“Now that we’re neighbors, we have no excuses. It’s so nice to see my old friend Brad Womack again. As good a man as you will ever find. Apologies to @laurenzima for boring you with all our old stories,” Harrison captioned the post.
Womack first appeared on The Bachelor in 2007. After a season of ups and downs, Womack eventually left the show without a fiancé, choosing not to propose to either of his past two wives (Jenni Croft and Deanna Pappas). In 2011, Womack was asked to return to the program, this time opting to get on one knee and ask Emily Maynard to marry him. They eventually ended their relationship according to People magazine.
Womack kind of fell off the map following his split from Maynard and doesn’t even have an Instagram account. However, he is now apparently Harrison’s neighbor.

“I’m not going to do it a third time,” Womack said. according to People magazine. “I promise you.”

“Life is good. I work a lot and meet up with friends and family a lot. I’m very happy to say that I’m very much in love, so I’m spending a lot of time with my new girlfriend. We’ve been together for a while and yes , I’m very happy and I hope she is too,” Womack told Harrison during the “Greatest Seasons” episode. However, the two have since split.
Womack lives in Austin, Texas where he owns a few bars.
