'Bachelor' star Brad Womack: Producers knew about my criminal past

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/25/2011 

The Bachelor star Brad Womack says that while some have speculated otherwise, the show's producers were fully aware of his criminal past before casting him on his initial season of the ABC reality dating series.

"Yes... they did. It just came out now because they, as well as I, don't think that [it] affects my character today. You know, you learn from your mistakes and you move on," Womack said during a Monday appearance on The View.

The 38-year-old from Austin, TX, has a criminal rapsheet that includes carrying a forged driver's license, public intoxication and passing a bad check. But Womack claimed his acts of indiscretion were simply immature mistakes he made as a young adult. 

"It was 20 years ago," Womack said.

"What it boils down to is... I was a stupid fraternity kid, I had a fake ID. I tried to get into bars. I was a stupid kid! I'm still a stupid kid! The only thing that's changed is I can get into bars legally now. You'll find me in a bar tonight."

In addition, The Bachelor star was also critical of the widespread media coverage the incidents have recently received.

"I get it... It's actually an eye-opening way of realizing that people will jump all over anything. I guess scandal sells," Womack suggested.
