Jenny McCarthy Was Rejected By ‘The Bachelorette’

Annual Charity Day Hosted by Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC - BGC Office

It’s a little too early in season 18 of ‘The Bachelor’ to start narrowing in on who is going to be the next bachelorette. Here’s what we can tell you – it’s not going to be Jenny McCarthy. According to various reports, McCarthy wanted to be ‘The Bachelorette’ but the show wanted nothing to do with her. The secret was revealed on an episode of ‘The View’ when co-host Barbara Walters called McCarthy out for “not making it”.

Barbara Walters pointed to McCarthy and said “you tried out to be a Bachelorette and you did not make it!”. Sadly McCarthy replied – “No one knew that!” McCarthy exclaimed. “When I got a divorce, I was lonely. I needed to be loved.”

This occurred 10 years ago. McCarthy apparently had her agent call the show, but was told that they weren’t using celebrities at the time. The show has dramatically grown in popularity since McCarthy’s bid to be ‘The Bachelorette’ and one of those reasons may be because she didn’t appear on the show. As for McCarthy today, she’s dating a new guy what seems to be every other month. She is currently dating New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg.

What do you think about celebrities on ‘The Bachelor’ of ‘The Bachelorette’? If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. As I’ve said plenty of times, the show is already teetering on reality TV.
