Brad Womack respects Madison Garton's choice not to take away one of the roses from girls who were really there for the right reasons.
The first walk-out on "The Bachelor" this season happened on Monday, January 17. Madison Garton, the 25-year-old model from Vail, Colorado did not want to receive the rose that Brad Womack was about to offer. Madison is also the girl who stood out from the rest when she revealed her vampire fangs in the beginning of the season.
Madison earned a one-on-one time with Brad during a cocktail party where she revealed to him that she took fellow contestant Emily's story to heart. Emily told the girls that her lover, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a plane crash and she found out that she was pregnant with his baby shortly after the tragedy.
Madison said she wanted people like Emily to find her way to Brad's heart and in that case, she would thin out the competition. Brad said she didn't have to take the rose if she didn't feel like it. And so Madison waited until the rose ceremony to walk out of the room.
In the exit interview, Madison admitted that she was not herself on the show. She thought joining the competition would be fabulous but it turned out there are more girls expecting the real thing from Brad.
With Madison's absence, Brad had to eliminate only two. He did not give the roses to Kimberly and Sarah who were both in the group date. While the latter was devastated that she was not picked, the former was upset. Kimberly thought that Brad probably is intimidated by her.
Next week, Brad takes the women to meet Dr. Drew to open up about themselves. One of the questions thrown is "Who has cheated?" and a hand shows up. There are also a disturbance from Ashley H. and a rift between Michelle and Chantal.
