"The Bachelor" recycles Brad Womack for a new season

You know that guy who hurt you and treated you like dirt? Why is he the one who always comes back? And why on earth do we take him back? Chris Harrison, why don't you field this.

"The Bachelor" has picked a new bachelor: It's old bachelor Brad Womack--otherwise known as the guy who didn't choose anyone. He made a fool (a fool I tell you!!) of us all when he left Deanna and Jenni rose-less. Only recently did we start to mend, thanks to Kirk, Jason's wedding, and Jake's captivating repressed anger. And now this? Why, casting directors, why?

Here's one explanation from an Us Weekly source: "Brad is very sincere and believes in the show. That's why he didn't pick someone last time. He was never in it for the publicity. He wants to find a wife."

Hate to be a stickler but it's been 3 years since the 37 year-old bar owner dumped two women on the finale. If he wanted a wife so badly, I'm sure there are some women out there who love a Ty Pennington knock-off. If he didn't like the 25 women he got to choose from last time, what's going to be different this time?

"Brad knows he has to open up more," says the insider. "Last time, he was reserved with the women."

Of course. The old "it'll be different this time" routine. I think "The Bachelor" needs to get some life-coaching. We offered some perfectly acceptable candidates recently. But the show would rather scroll through old emails, Facebook friends, and US weekly articles, to find exes who may still be single and possibly hungrier this time around. You're a great show, "Bachelor," but you pick the wrong guys. Is it any wonder you're still single?
