Ep 38 - Madison Prewett: Basketball, Beliefs, & The Bachelor
"The Bachelors''' Madison Prewett, joins Paula to talk about her experience on the show, her new book "Made for this Moment", and the importance of preparing for who you are and what you value before having to make life altering decisions. Before she found fame as a reality TV star, she was known as a force on the basketball court, winning four state titles, and thought she was going to become a pastor, having just graduated from seminary school, when out of nowhere she was approached by producers of "The Bachelor." Madison admits she struggled with the decision to join the cast but says she ultimately accepted it as her next calling despite pushback from friends and those inside her religious circles. After being criticized for staying true to her convictions during the fantasy suites round, Madison says she eventually found solace knowing it served as an inspiration for other women to stand strong in their own values and not change themselves to be loved and accepted. She also reveals if she really thinks it is possible to fall in love in a short time on TV and her response to being asked if she would come back as the Bachelorette.
