James Case, the bachelor who just went on a date with “Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock that involved touring sites in New Jersey that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, spoke with the press Thursday (June 20) about his time on the show, including the previews for next week that make it look like he’s the center of some drama.
“I’m not too sure how I can answer that. I just hope people judge me on the merits and who I am and what they’ve seen thus far. Things can be said, things can be done and you just have to roll with the punches. I signed up for this, you just gotta roll with it,” says Case.
“Stay tuned, right?”, he laughs.
But he does add that he had many reasons for going on the show and that anybody who tells you it’s just for love is not telling the whole truth.
“I’m living in a new city. It’s hard to find a woman to date here. It’s been difficult for me with work. I just felt like it was a great opportunity. There’s multiple reasons why I chose to go on the show,” says Case.
“The whole experience, if somebody tells you it’s just for love, they have to be crazy. … I got to travel the world, I got to do a lot of things, I got to do things people aren’t able to do and I took advantage of that. It was amazing.”
And out of the guys in the house, James agrees with Brandon that Brooks is the guy for Desiree.
“I think [Desiree is] a smart girl and I think she’s going to pick the person that fits her. If I had to pick, it might be Brooks.”
“The Bachelorette” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
