ABC “wouldn’t let [Byron and Mary] go more than a few weeks without” meeting.
Perhaps in an attempt to improve the series’ massive failure rate, producers made sure The Bachelor 6‘s Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado spent time with each other while the show was airing. “We saw each other every 2 or 3 weeks. They wouldn’t let us go more than a few weeks without seeing each other,” Byron tells To keep the results of the series a secret, the couples are traditionally kept apart, and separation is, of course, great for young, artificially incubated love. How’s their love developing? Based upon Byron’s choice of words, it’s a battle. He says they have no wedding date yet, adding, “We’re looking at some time next year, but right now, we’re just trying to be a couple. We’re just battling hard to be a couple.” Discussing his fishing career, he shows himself to be remarkably grounded about his newfound fame, as he isn’t turning into a greedy reality TV whore yet. He says that he’s “had some offers that were a lot more than what my current sponsors have given me, but at the same time I’m loyal. It would bum me out to not be loyal. It’s not worth an extra $500 a month to lose a friend. It’s not for me.”
