Jackie Hickey was one of the 10 women who got their walking papers on the first episode of "The Bachelor," which aired last Monday. She talks about what she would change if she could have a do-over.
"I probably would not have so much bubbly," the 26-year-old wedding coordinator from Dallas, TX. "I mean it's pretty obvious that I had quite a few cocktails that evening, which isn't like me. [It was] nervous excitement. [I was] a little scared and intimidated."
Jackie says that in her job, she sees everybody's happy ending and she really wanted to see if the dating show would be her avenue to find that for herself.
"I see a lot of grooms, especially with my job," she admits. "[Jason Mesnick] looked like groom quality and it was what he was there for. He seemed appropriate.
But just because Jackie, who was married previously for a year and a half, has been ousted, she says she wouldn't mind continuing her association with "The Bachelor" by being the wedding planner for Jason's nuptials.
"If I can't be the one, if I can't be No. 1, it is fun to plan," she says. "That is what I do now. I am never the bride, just the planner."
