A surprisingly dapper (dare we say fine?) Tim McCormack is here to officially apologize for his behavior during The Bachelorette Season 7 premiere. He already spoke to reporters about the humiliation of getting so drunk he had to be physically removed from the show — and now he is speaking out in a video on the official Bachelor site.

"I just want to take a minute and let everybody know that I really am extremely upset over what happened out in Los Angeles when I came out to film The Bachelorette,” Tim says. He apologizes again to Ashley Hebert and wishes her love and happiness. "She's a great person, a beautiful girl, and she definitely did not deserve to deal with the disaster that I came out there and displayed."

Now he's moving on. "I own it. I did it. And that's that." But will we see him this summer on Bachelor Pad Season 2? He said in his earlier interview that he would consider it, if producers asked him. And why not? He made an arse of himself, that's true, but he's sorry and his words are much kinder and more sincere than anything we've heard from Bad News Bentley. If Ashley can keep Bentley and Masked Jeff around, ABC should give Tim another shot.
