Bachelor 2’s Helene, Gwen writing a book about dealing with imperfect men.
The second woman to get dumped after being proposed to on The Bachelor is writing a book about bad dates. Helene Eksterowicz’s book, written with fellow The Bachelor 2 contestant Gwen Gioia, is titled Nobody’s Perfect, and features a chapter titled, “Aaron Buerge, That Piece of Crap.” Well, not really. Actually, the book “offers true stories and useful tips to help you deal with every clueless type of man, from Mr. Separated But Not Yet Divorced to Mr. Mama’s Boy, from Mr. Socks With Sandals to Mr. Eternal Frat Brother.” Their book will be released in February, joining an already published memoir by The Bachelor 4‘s Bob Guiney, titled What a Difference a Year Makes: How Life’s Unexpected Setbacks Can Lead to Unexpected Joy.
