Brit Bachelor Guy: Don't Look for Love on Reality TV!

A former Bachelor star has a warning for potential contestants looking for love on the long-running ABC dating show.

Matt Grant, the leading man on season 12 of The Bachelor, says the show's potential for making a successful match is pretty low. "There's always the possibility [of finding true love on the show], but I think the chances are slim," Grant told us this weekend at the 23rd Genesis Awards in Beverly Hills. "It's hard enough finding a good girlfriend in reality, let alone the nonreality of reality TV."

As for America's most hated Bachelor Jason Mesnick...

Grant actually praised the single father for "having the balls to admit that he screwed up."

But that's not the path Grant would have taken.

"Even if they offered me half a million dollars, I would have to say no way," Grant said, when asked if he would ever take the Mesnick route. "I think he kind of committed reality suicide."

At the end of his reign, Grant became engaged to Shayne Lamas (daughter of actor Lorenzo Lamas), but the two called it quits after just two months.

It's safe to say Grant isn't crying over lost Bachelor love. He's currently dating his publicist, Sarah Robarts.
