women pursuing Jesse Palmer “were sexier, hotter and showed a lot more skin.”
The Bachelor 5, Giants quarterback Jesse Palmer, will be hunted by 25 women who are younger, “sexier, hotter and showed a lot more skin,” producer Mike Fleiss says. For his part, Palmer tells the New York Daily News that “[t]he fact that 25 women did not know who I was, was important,” although the paper reports that word leaked to the contestants in advance. Jesse also says he “has found that some of the women he’s dated in the past were interested in him for the wrong reasons.” So he agreed to do the show, where of course all of the women will have genuine intentions and will not be interested in him for anything other than his mind.
