Creator Mike Fleiss: 'The Bachelor 12' the "most insane season so far"
By Christopher Rocchio, 03/06/2008
The Bachelor eleventh-season star Brad Womack made the unprecedented decision to reject both his final suitors during the season's final Rose Ceremony, however the show's next season will apparently feature even more "craziness," according to show creator Mike Fleiss.
"It's the most insane season so far," Fleiss toldHollywood Exclusive columnists Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith a mere 15 minutes before the recent filming of The Bachelor's twelfth-season finale.
Matt Grant, a 27-year-old "global financier" from London, will serve as The Bachelor's twelfth-season star when it premieres with a special 90-minute broadcast on Monday, March 17 at 9:30PM ET/PT.
While the self-described "British gentleman" has had an American girlfriend in the past, The Bachelor's first international star in the show's history said he had never seen The Bachelor before because it's only show on satellite in the U.K.
"He was sort of unfiltered," Fleiss told Hollywood Exclusive.
As a result, Fleiss said it was "refreshing" since Grant really didn't have any preconceived notions about The Bachelor or how to act around the 25 stateside woman he had to whittle down once filming for the long-running reality dating series began.
"So many times with these reality shows, people fall into behavior that they've seen on a previous show, so they're really not being themselves," Fleiss told Hollywood Exclusive.
