Who He Chose: Estella Gardinier
Who He Should Have Chose: Meredith Phillips
Bachelor Bob, as he was known, was immensely popular with viewers when he was a contestant on Trista Rehn's season of "The Bachelorette," so much so that he became "The Bachelor," despite being a little tubbier than the stars of these shows are usually allowed. Anyway, in the end, Bob chose between Estella and Kelly Jo and Estella won -- only to be dumped, like, a hot second after the finale aired. Bob went on to marry and then divorce soap star Rebecca Budig, but I think he would have been better off if he had kept Meredith Phillips around to the end and gave her the final rose. Meredith was amazing -- smart, funny, cultured, beautiful but in a totally unique way -- and she and Bob clicked. Frankly, she was way too good for Bachelor BLOB, but this is about who he should have chosen, not whether she should have accepted.
