The Bachelor: Behind the Scenes

There was the day that she showed up for a date at an over-the-top beach house in Malibu only to find that Lindsay Lohan’s stuff was strewn all over the place. “She hadn’t had a chance to move out because she had been arrested [for a DUI],” says Stewart. And then there was the fall, when Stewart wiped out going down a staircase in a gown and heels. The fall was on Jimmy Kimmel the next night. (Kimmel’s “Falling with the Stars” reel also included a Fidel Castro nosedive and Marie Osmond fainting on Dancing with the Stars.)
Maybe it was the champagne, the celebrity spotlight, or the Chopard diamond earrings she received during a “fantasy date” as she made her way to the final four, but Stewart says she actually fell for Womack—just before he sent her packing.
The 23-year-old Stewart shouldn’t take the rejection too personally—Womack sent the other three bachelorettes home as well, the first time in The Bachelor’s 11 seasons that the show didn’t have a happy ending.
