ABC confirms Meredith Phillips to star as the next 'Bachelorette'
By Reality TV World staff, 12/13/2003
ABC has finally officially confirmed what we've been reporting for a couple of weeks now -- that Meredith Phillips, the third runner-up from Bob Guiney's edition of The Bachelor, will be the woman at the center of ABC's second The Bachelorette series which premieres in January.
Phillips, a 29-year-old model/ makeup artist currently residing in West Hollywood, CA, is a native of Beaverton, Oregon and graduate of Oregon State University. An aspiring chef hoping to attend culinary school, Meredith is likely best remembered for the scene in the third episode of Guiney's The Bachelor series in which she learned of her grandmother's passing only moments before her big solo date with Guiney.
