That's ABC's dating-game reality show, in which a marriageable guy begins the season with a pool of two dozen women to eliminate one by one; he is expected to propose marriage to the finalist.

Still, something changed just ahead of the final announcement, because Luke Pell was considered a shoo-in for the job.“It’s not an indictment on Luke that he’s not the Bachelor. We can just only have one person and, at the end of the day, it’s very important for us to have someone who is sincere.Who is sincerely going to go through this and, I hate to be cliche, for the right reasons try to find love? Who’s ready to find love and go on this journey and who might have ulterior motives and might want to go in a different business direction with all this?If we did make that last-minute decision to go with Nick, there’s a reason … ” that when it came down to it, Pell may have put too much focus on his aspirations as a country music singer. Everyone on the production level was expecting it to be me, as well.”“I don’t have a problem with it if they think that they have a better candidate for the show, that’s fine. Asking me to be genuine and authentic and open and vulnerable…and then I don’t get genuine and authentic in return from the organization.” it was never a done deal.Benjamin Franklin once said, "Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance."It seems his opinion may have been popular in the days of the founding fathers -- a New Jersey museum recently discovered wine dating back to about 20 years after the American Revolution.
