WATCH: On ‘The Bachelor,’ Jesse Palmer Gives the Wrong Girl a Rose.


Variety reported on September 28, 2021, that Jesse Palmer would be the new host of “The Bachelor,” succeeding Chris Harrison. What some people may not realize or may have forgotten is that Palmer was the show’s star in 2004. Palmer’s appearance on “The Bachelor” was notable because he was one of only two well-known people to be given the opportunity to hand out roses (the other being Jerry O’Connell). Palmer is a former NFL quarterback who spent four seasons as a backup quarterback for the New York Giants before moving to Canada to play football. In 2007, he announced his retirement from the sport. Palmer was “one of the show’s youngest suitors” at the time, according to the Los Angeles Times, and he was looking for love on reality television at the age of 26. Palmer did have a girlfriend by the end of the show, Jessica Bowlin, but he didn’t propose on the show’s finale. According to Us Weekly, Palmer and Bowlin split up just a few months after the show ended. She later married a man named Omar Rawi and is now the mother of two children. According to the Los Angeles Times, Palmer is set to marry his fiancee, a model named Emely Fardo, in 2019. Palmer’s time on “The Bachelor” didn’t go exactly as planned, and he made a major faux pas during a rose ceremony.

Here’s what you need to know:

Palmer Forgot the Name of One of the Women & Gave a Rose to the Wrong Person

Palmer did find love as “The Bachelor,” but it wasn’t a lasting love. Along the way, he had one of the most memorable — and possibly embarrassing — experiences of any franchise star — ever. During one rose ceremony, Palmer forgot the name of the woman to whom he wanted to give a rose, and he ended up giving the rose to the wrong person. Palmer actually received the No. 9 spot in a video called “‘The Bachelor’ 20 Most Amazing Moments” for his rose mix-up. It happened right after he dialed “Katie’s” number to ask for a rose. Katie approached Palmer and handed him a rose. She accepts (“absolutely! “). “) and returns to the group before summoning Chris Harrison. Palmer says, “Chris, I need to speak with you.”

He and Chris decline to participate in the rose ceremony. Palmer tells Chris outside the room, “I forgot her name.” He continued, “That wasn’t the girl I wanted to give it to.” “It’s Karen,” says the narrator. Katie, I said. I froze and lost track of time. He said, “I said Katie.”

When Harrison and Palmer returned to the rose ceremony, they had devised a plan to rectify the situation — albeit awkwardly. “We’ve ended up facing something we’ve never run into before,” Harrison said, as he and Palmer apologized to the ladies for keeping them waiting. ”

Palmer then explained what had happened, assuring Katie that he hadn’t meant to give her the night’s final rose. Palmer offered her the chance to stay as she walked towards him to return the rose she had just received. Palmer said,

, “I’d like to extend to you the option of staying.” Katie replied, “I’ll stay and see how things go.” Palmer was given an extra rose, which he gave to Karen, the correct person. She approached him after he called her name. With a laugh, she said, “I thought you’d never ask.”
