The Bachelor Comes To Town

   It may have been called Women's Night Out, but for East Texas ladies, the whole night was about one man: The Bachelor.

   "He's beautiful. He's perfect. He's every girl's dream," said one fan.

   "He's hot. Every Wednesday night we would have a "Bachelor Party" to watch him," said another female fan.

   Aaron Buerge, the star of The Bachelor 2, says he loved all of the attention he got at Clear Channel's Women's Night Out.

   "You know, it's going to be really difficult for me to go back home, don't you," he told me.

   "I'm a single guy and there are hundreds of beautiful women to meet me -- and it is a great warm welcome. I like Tyler and wish I could get to know everyone better."

   But "The Bachelor" wasn't the only draw to the event for women across East Texas. There were booths full of freebies and treats, plus Big Al Mack from the Kid Kraddic Show. Big Al tried to hold his own next to "The Bachelor". I asked him if he was a bit jealous -- he told me it hurt him a bit.

   "It did hurt a little bit, but I am used to it. I am a lonely man," Big Al said jokingly.

   But the night wasn't just about the boys.

   "I just like it because it is a little bit of Tyler all in one building ," said one woman. But everything always came back to "The Bachelor".

   "Is that really what brought you out here, 'The Bachelor'?," I asked one woman. She said yes, "The Bachelor" was the draw along with the free food.

   Luckily for the women, "The Bachelor" was glad to spend just a few moments with each woman who watched his show who gave him 15 minutes of fame.
