Drunk Bachelorette suitor Tim: “I don’t have any excuses”

One of the more notable The Bachelorette was Tim, who was so drunk he fell asleep and had to be led to a car and sent home before the rose ceremony.

He talked to reporters today, and refreshingly, did not blame the editing or anything else for his behavior. “I don’t have any excuses,” he said, according to ET.

His drunkenness was “extremely humiliating,” he said. “I literally had to turn it off, it was nauseating.” And he insisted he went on the show to find a life partner: “Of course I went on ‘The Bachelorette’ to find love.”
