The Bachelorette 2012 ousted contestant Tony Pieper said he could not connect with Emily Maynard because all he could think about during the show was his son. Pieper, 31, said he just could not handle being away from his 5-year-old son for so long.
In a press conference call, The Bachelorette 2012 contestant Tony Pieper said he decided to join the show because he was “looking for a family and love” and his son wants that too. “We’re happy but there’s one piece missing. It was worth going to find the missing piece to make our family whole.”
