'The Bachelorette' suitor William Holman competing on 'Bachelor Pad'
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/21/2011
The Bachelorette viewers haven't seen the last of this season's wannabe funnyman.
William Holman, a 30-year-old cellular phone salesman from Galloway, OH, is one of the three previously unannounced seventh-season The Bachelorette bachelors competing on Bachelor Pad's second season, which will premiere Monday, August 8 on ABC, Entertainment Weeklyreported Tuesday.
In addition to Holman, two other bachelors from Ashley Hebert'scurrently-airing The Bachelorette season are also part of the cast of the second season of Bachelor Pad, which began filming earlier this month, however their identities have yet to be announced by ABC -- presumably because they're still competing for Hebert's heart on the show.
Holman is best known for labeling himself the comedian in the mansion and making Hebert cry during a group date in which the men had to roast The Bachelorette star. Holman claimed his feelings for Hebert were very strong right from the start of the process when they had the season's first date together, but he bashed her with unintentional insults during the roast and completely turned her off as a result.
Which side of Holman viewers will see throughout this summer's edition of Bachelor Pad remains unclear.
"I can be the funniest guy in the room, I can be the most romantic guy in the room, I can be the biggest dick in the room," Holman said in attempt to describe himself during Monday night's episode of The Bachelorette prior to his elimination.
Former fourteenth-season The Bachelor couple Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka are also competing to win the $250,000 grand prize on the second season of The Bachelor franchise's Big Brother-like spinoff, which began taping on June 7.
