Heather Cranford Out

The Bachelor, Season 2

This is a lady who really wanted to get married. Dubbed “Heather from Dallas” by Aaron Buerge, the former flight attendant made it clear she was ready for “a rock.” Buerge was apparently not ready to buy her one. A few years later, when The Bachelor producers brought in oldest-bachelor-ever (he was 40, by the way) Byron Velvick, Heather re-upped. She couldn’t reel in the professional fisherman, however, and, once again she returned home with a ringless finger. Thankfully her spinsterhood was short-lived—and maybe that’s because she gave up on finding love on television. She married someone she went to Duncanville High School with—former professional baseball player David Nied.
