Jen Schefft dishes about her 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' romances

By Christopher Rocchio, 01/23/2007 

Jen Schefft looked for love twice in-front of a national television audience, once during the third edition of ABC's The Bachelor in 2003 and again on the third edition of ABC's The Bachelorette in 2005.

The 28-year-old Ohio native's first televised fling was with Firestone tire company heir Andrew Firestone, 31, when the two met on The Bachelor 3.  Firestone chose Schefft out of 25 women competing for his heart on the reality competition, and in its series finale, he proposed to her

"When he asked me to marry him, my initial gut reaction wasn't, Woo-Hoo!  It was, Whoa.  It was panic," Schefft said in the January 29 issue of Us magazine.

While there was no marriage, the couple dated for several months and reportedly discussed having children together before eventually splitting in December 2003.  Despite rumors of their reconciliation in February 2004, Firestone has been dating 29-year-old model Ivana Bozilovic for two years.  He also recently opened a new Firestone winery in Paso Robles, CA.

"I really, truly cared about Andrew and will always be sorry it didn't work out," Schefft told Us.

While Firestone was busy with Bozilovic, Schefft moved on, and in early 2005, she appeared as the object of affection for 25 men on the third season of The Bachelorette.  Schefft went threw the motions and narrowed the field down to only two guys, Jerry Ferris and John Paul Merritt, but rejected the marriage proposals of both men in the end.

"I thought [Ferris] was good looking, but that's as far as it went," Schefft told Us.  Said Ferris to Us, "We haven't really spoken since the whole thing went down."

According to Us, Schefft is "still happily unattached."
