Perhaps the second time is the charm for the 38-year-old "Bachelor" veteran Brad Womack. Host Chris Harrison seems to think so! Fresh from last night's finale, Chris dishes on the future of Brad and his bride-to-be Emily Maynard.
"They are doing fantastic right now" he says, adding confidently that "the good news about Brad and Emily is that they are two of the most stubborn people you will ever meet and so they are going to fight like hell to make this work."
And even though Emily gleefully accepted Brad's sparkling Neil Lane engagement ring and marriage proposal during last night's finale, the After the Final Rose Special revealed the couple's path to the altar has been a bumpy one, divulging a post engagement breakup/makeup, in addition to an indefinitely postponed wedding ceremony. "She's smart. She's dealing with Brad and this relationship and trying to make it work as much as she can, but at the same time she's got to make the right decisions for her daughter."
Despite their hardships, Harrison believes they will ultimately make it work. With a bit of luck and some time away from the spotlight, he is optimistic a learn-by-example of "Bachelor" successes such as Trista and Ryan Sutter will keep them going strong. "You look at the couples that have succeeded on our show- it's those couples that have just gotten out of here and you know, made it work, and that's what they're doing."
