Brad is “disappointed” that he didn’t get his “fairy tale romance”

Brad Womack appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show Friday to again defend his decision. Earlier in the week, Ellen called him a “jerk.”

But Brad says he’s just as upset as some fans that he didn’t find love. “I believe in the fairy tale romance. I am so disappointed that it didn’t happen to me,” he said, according to Us Weekly.

He told Ellen that he did have feelings for both women. “First of all, I wouldn’t say that were no feelings. In fact, what I want people to understand is, I know no one is buying this, that it was just as difficult for me. … I knew I was going to put myself in the hot seat by telling both ladies goodbye,” he said. “I thought I had made a decision full of integrity by not giving a false promise.”

Brad also denied that he wanted DeAnna’s father to be flown in by producers. “I never one time asked for DeAnna’s father to be flown out. Never one single time,” he said.
