Dain Blanton


from dain's agent - 26 March 2003 -

Dain Blanton, Beach Volleyball Gold Medalist, was a finalist for the new season of The Bachelor, airing tonight at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. Tonight's show, the first of the new season, goes in depth into the lives of 4 potential Bachelors for this seasons show. At the conclusion of the show, they are supposed to reveal who the new Bachelor is. Due to the fact that the new Bachelor has already been revealed, a result of the decision being leaked to the tabloids, they have turned tonight's show into a casting special.   Dain was supposed to have a 7-10 minute segment that was sure to give him some much needed exposure.   Last I heard, he is going to have a minimal part of the show, maybe a minute or two.
