More than 11 million viewers tuned in to the “Dad” finale on August 11 to watch Cincinnati businessman Don Mueller propose to Christena Ferran, the women his four children - Heidi, Chris, Joe and Karla - chose as Don’s ideal mate. Now Don, his kids, Christena and the other “Dad” contestants will reveal what happened behind-the-scenes, what they’re doing now and how they feel about the outcome of the show, plus Don and Christena will share their plans for the future (which, as we reported previously, do not appear to include marriage.)
