Deanna Pappas Interview
Interviewer: What made you decide to try out for The Bachelor?
Deanna Pappas: My story is actually totally different. I did not want to go on The Bachelor. I had never seen the show before. I had some friends who were huge fans. I had just recently been single, just about 3 months. My friend called me one day and said they were doing auditions in Atlanta. I was like, “No way, I’m not into reality shows.” She thought I was perfect and offered me food afterwards so I was like, “Sure!” I never had any intentions of doing the show. I didn’t think in a million years that they would pick me. I lived in small town and was just a normal girl who worked a normal job and lived in a normal house. I didn’t think they’d ever choose me. When I went to the audition, I was just my normal, goofy self. My sister is really the one who pushed me to go.
Interviewer: Being on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette has its good points but there’s a negative side to it too, with the tabloids. How did you handle both aspects?
Deanna Pappas: For me, the show was taking a bit of a dive and then Brad did that finale where he didn’t choose anyone. When I became the Bachelorette, my season rated high. Before that, the show started to take a dive. The tabloids didn’t cover it as much. There was not that stuff going on in my life. I had no ex-boyfriends that were going to come out and say things about me. I feel bad for people like Jillian and Brad and Ali who have had to deal with things like this. I had a wonderful experience. I had this awful breakup with Jesse and I chose to keep my business out of the tabloids. I chose a different path that he did. I’m not gonna bash anyone publicly. It’s nobody’s business but mine and his. I feel bad for what everyone is going through, especially Brad. I know he adores Emily. It sucks.
Interviewer: Speaking of, I know that you watched this season. What was it like to watch Brad’s second go around as The Bachelor?
Deanna Pappas: It was tons of fun. I gave Brad a little shake of my finger a couple of times when he would say certain things. Brad’s a great guy, though. It was a lot of fun watching. It was fun having some insight and seeing a difference in Brad. He opened himself up and really embraced love, especially with Emily. In my season, he wasn’t like that. I think he genuinely cared for me but he didn’t tell me that he loved me. I think he led me on a bit but I think he got caught up in the process of the show.
Interviewer: What are you up to these days?
Deanna Pappas: I am just working and planning a wedding! I got engaged last May and we’re getting married October 22nd. We’re in full on wedding planning. I’ve been blogging with Weddzilla every week, telling them about my process. I think because of The Bachelor and The Bachelortte, people wanna see my fairy tale ending. I think people really wanna know. There are diehard supporters of the show and they wanna see happy endings. I also blog with Alfred Angelo, who is the designer of my wedding gown. I’m going on auditions. I also have an online show, Rose Recap, and we’ll continue that every season. That is tons of fun.
Interviewer: So it’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing you on Bachelor Pad…
Deanna Pappas: I definitely will not be on Bachelor Pad EVER! I sure will have tons of fun watching my friends and rooting them on.
Interviewer: What can fans expect with you at Reality Rocks next month?
Deanna Pappas: What can’t they expect? I hope they know they’re meeting a normal person. I heard about Reality Rocks through the lady who is my hosting coach. She’s the one who thought of me for it. I hope fans come and they’re going to meet a totally normal person. I was normal before and I’m still totally normal. I’m looking forward to it!
