7 November 2002

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua – (Press Release) --, a leading offshore gaming company, suspended wagering on ABC's The Bachelor earlier this week following a deluge of wagers on one of the remaining bachelorettes. Suspicions were aroused when the company began receiving up to nine new account applications per minute originating from the bachelor's hometown of Springfield, Missouri, beginning on October 31, all of which placed bets on the same woman. Aaron Buerge, the bachelor, it seems is not the only person who knows the answer to the question all of America is asking.

Of the money placed on The Bachelor bet offer, over 60 percent originated from Springfield, Missouri, and was all placed on the same bachelorette. Management discovered the consistency of the bets and their origin earlier this week when the decision was taken to suspend wagering on the show.

"In the past few days we have seen an abnormal amount of maximum limit wagers originating from the hometown of the bachelor, all of which were backing the same woman and forced us to suspend the betting on the show," said Buck Churchill, chief bet manager of "Next week's episode of the show is entitled 'The Women Tell All!', but as we see it perhaps a better title would be 'The Bachelor's Friends Tell All!'."
