At least he found someone, even temporarily?
After becoming one of the most loathed men in America when he decided not to be with either of his final two women in season 11, Brad ended his second tenure as the Bachelor four years later on one knee, proposing to the fan-favorite single mom.
But their engagement ended after just three rocky months, with Emily revealing in her 2016 book I Said Yes that Brad even tried to break up with her in an e-mail he sent to producers ahead of the After the Final Rose taping. "Sorry but things didn't work out with Emily and I. It wasn't the fairy tale I thought it would be," she claimed he wrote.
And their split wasn't entirely shocking, as they couple released a statement after their finale aired, admitting to People magazine, "Though we are madly in love, it has been a bumpy couple of months for us and our priority right now is to focus on our relationship."
Watching their season play out proved difficult for Emily, who told the publication, "He had a tendency to say the same thing to a couple girls. So I felt less and less special. I get that it's a show. But it's still hard. You're not sure what's real and what's reality TV."
