Matches made in TV heaven

Despite “The Bachelor’s” truly lousy track record -- 15 seasons resulting in just one wedding, and not even to the bachelorette the guy picked on-air -- more than 10 million dewy-eyed viewers still believe in the romance of ABC’s pick-a-bride series. They will watch with bated breath Monday at 8 p.m. to see which of the lucky gals left standing will be picked by hunky bar owner Brad Womack to become his official fiancee, or maybe just official girlfriend. Unless, of course, he pulls a Brad Womack and gives them both the brusheroo. Womack is the guy who famously rejected all of the women in the show’s 11th season, so, naturally, ABC gave him a couple dozen more to consider. And you thought reality TV wasn’t realistic. If you’ve never watched the show, it goes like this: good-looking white guy is presented with a couple dozen hot young chicks and a hot tub. Nature does the rest.
