Bob Guiney was a suitor on the very first season of The Bachelorette with Trista Rehn, and longtime fans of the show backed him. He became the next Bachelor when Oprah Winfrey became a fan.
Guiney discussed his experiences on Bachelor Nation and what life has been like since. Toward the end of the podcast, Reality Steve brought up the topic that many people were probably waiting to hear.
The Bizarre Quote That Stunned Audiences
Bobguiney's tweet is a follow-up to my tweet. (@bobguiney)
Realty Steve stated, "I need to clear the record on something." Over the last ten years, this has been an urban legend and urban legend. So you'd be aware of what I'm talking about if Mike Fleiss said about Bob Guiney. (Mike Fleiss is the creator of the Bachelor."
Reality Steve went on to explain that in 2010 they did a behind the scenes special on The Bachelor, and that for whatever reason, this guy just throws out there, and Bob Guiney had five and a half women on the program.
Steve pleaded with Guiney to explain why Fleiss made such an unusual comment. Although Guiney could not say for sure what was going on in Fleiss' head, he said he did ask him at the time: What the hell was that? Because I remember first of all thinking to myself, what a half minutes, and secondly, I wasnt even alone with five or five and a half people.
Fleiss did not just disseminate the statement on YouTube, as Reality Steve implied. It was actually a response to a follow-up interview question about how much sex actually takes place during filming. Fleiss first admitted, there is sex. There isn't a ton of it. I believe the average guy will have sex with around three women during the program.
The interviewer then asked who in your opinion had the greatest batting average? Fleiss confidently replied, "That's my guy, Bob Guiney. I believe he was five and a half."
Guiney Firmly Denied the Number
Bobguiney's tweet (@bobguiney) is the subject of a conversation.
Guiney explained that his usual answer to questions about what the quote meant used to be a gentleman, leaving viewers to wonder if there was some truth to the tale. On this podcast, Guiney confirmed that there was no truth to it.
Guiney then stated that the most horrible part of that whole episode was that I was actually going through a divorce when it was broadcasting, and my grandmother was also watching that special. And I said, Bobby, what did you say? I think he's kidding. It's just caught me at a strange time in my life to have to deal with it.
