A new Bachelor Nation romance brewing? Madison Prewett played coy about her friendship and Mike Planeta after the twosome were seen out in the same place earlier this month.
“I will say Mikey is an amazing guy,” the reality TV star of 25 stated on the DailyGossip’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast, while promoting Made for This Moment. “I’m in a phase right that I am focusing completely upon my novel, completely focused on what God wants me to be right now. In all honesty, I’m not sure I’d have a romantic relationship at this moment, even if were to, due to the fact that my day is hectic and chaotic. However, I’m concentrating on me, on this book and putting the message out there, trying to make it known to as many people as I can by sharing this message. And as we see what happens and we’ll be watching how it goes.”
Prewett and Planeta 31, who were in the 17th season of The Bachelorette, were both honest about their faith and deciding to wait to see if they could have a sex relationship until they get married during both seasons of their respective seasons on the ABC franchise. In her book Prewett recalls the conversation she had with The Bachelor 24 Peter Weber about her decision prior to the dates in the fantasy suite.
“Everyone’s like, ‘You know what you’re getting yourself into when you go on that show.’ I’d actually never watched The Bachelor, so I truly didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” she explained to Us. “And even if it was on I don’t know what you’re getting yourself into.) and you don’t know the distance you’ll need to travel be able to go. 2.) You don’t even know what you’ll feel, and you don’t know what challenges you’re likely to face. In my case I’ve always thought of myself and my existence as whatever circumstances I’m in, and regardless of where I’m that I will never set myself lower. I’m never going change my self. Also, I’m not going to accept something that isn’t within my soul and doesn’t match my vision for my own life.”
She acknowledges the fact that “a lot of people” believed that her discussion with Weber 29 about his relationship with competitors in the form of the “ultimatum,” she told Us that it was a method to say, “‘Hey, these are my values , my beliefs and convictions. If we’re going to be together and you’d like to get married and I’m not urging for you to make, it’s your decision. If you decide to be with me , and you’re willing to marry me, then you must be aware of this. This is my view of this. This is what I think regarding it.'”
All in all, Prewett told Us that it’s “definitely harder” for her to meet people post-Bachelor.
“Not knowing what people know about you, not know about you, their intentions — it definitely makes it a little bit more difficult,” she said. “But I’m someone who understands exactly what I need. I know precisely what I want. I’m not a fan of wasting my time speaking to a lot of people or going out on several dates. I am able to tell fairly quickly if someone is someone I’d be interested in I can tell fairly quickly if the vision and life’s purpose will be in sync, and whether our values and beliefs are in line. Also, I’m quite selective when you’re trying to find someone. It makes it a bit more challenging and a more challenging but I’m sure that when the right person is found in, it’s going enhance the experience and more enjoyable.”
In the end, the Auburn alumni chose not to participate in the 7th season of Bachelor in Paradise.
“I had to shoot that one down,” she explained to Us with a smile. “Unless God speaks to me … it’s not something I’ve got in my head or in my plans to take on. My acquaintances did it and shared their own experiences. However, for me, it was like it’s probably not going be understood by any person until they have read the bookBut I felt that I was meant to go to The Bachelor, felt like I was destined to go on the show, but did not know the reason, wasn’t sure what it would be like, and did not know it would turn out in the way it did. I’m thankful for that today. But throughout that process, I was quite a fright. Now, I’m in the same scenario, such as”Hey, would you really want to do that?’ do not know if I would be able to do that again unless I felt some kind of peace to go on a date. I would like to meet people in a natural way.”
At present, Prewett is gearing up for the Tuesday, Oct. 19, publication of Made for This Moment: Standing Strong by Strength, Grace, and Courage and telling Us that she addresses “so many different” topics in her memoir, and she wants to help others understand what is their “purpose” and find their confidence.
“I’m praying that for those who read my book, they see that they were made on purpose and for purpose,” she said. “That that they are able to offer and they begin to appreciate themselves. They are taught to accept the way they came to be and learn to defend their identity and be steadfast in their faith and beliefs . They know that how we respond to pressure is crucial however the way we prepare for it is equally important. It is a pain witnessing a generation that just sort of drift away from emotions and feelings , and then dependent on what everyone is doing. My wish and hope is that I will witness a generation rise up and declare that they don’t care about everything else happening and the things that everyone does, because this is the way I am, and this is what I’m supposed to be doing and I’m determined to take a stand in promoting this direction.'”
