Before taking his second shot at love on the The Bachelor Monday, Brad Womack had some unfinished business: apologizing to the two women he spurned during his first stint on the ABC reality hit four years ago.

Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas were on hand to hear Womack beg for forgiveness for his actions during the show’s 11th cycle in 2007, when he ditched them both in the finale — a move that labeled him the most hated bachelor in the history of the show.
Womack said Monday that old battles with anxiety caused him to fail “miserably” in turning his back on both women. Womack claimed that extensive therapy has helped him right all of his old wrongs.
“I watched the finale, and I felt like a jerk,” Womack said. “And then I’m starting to think, what’s wrong with me? Not what’s wrong with the girls — what’s wrong with me?”
Following Womack’s apologies, the new batch of this season’s beauties scampered in, and one of them — a Washington, D.C. native named Chantal — gave Womack a smack in the kisser for his actions of yesteryear.
“One, I deserved that,” Womack told Chantal. “Two, I like you better already!”
With the first batch of women eliminated, the stage is set for date night next week on The Bachelor, airing Monday on ABC at 8/7c.
