DeAnna Pappas will star in The Bachelorette 4

DeAnna Pappas, one of the two women rejected by Brad Womack during The Bachelor 11‘s finale, will star in The Bachelorette 4 this summer.

She was chosen because she “demonstrated her assertiveness and independent nature during the series, setting her apart from the other women,” according to an ABC press release. It calls her “an immediate fan favorite” and brags that “she was the final woman remaining on the finale of ‘The Bachelor’ in November,” although it admits that she, too, was dumped.

Producers are now casting for the 25 men who will date DeAnna.
