Tampa woman among 10 to get another rose on 'The Bachelor'

By Wire services
Published October 2, 2003

Tampa resident Mary Delgado was among 10 women shown Wednesday advancing to the next round of ABC's reality TV dating show The Bachelor. Michigan mortgage broker Bob Guiney will be shown selecting a single woman over the course of the series, which was filmed over two months this summer in California.

During Wednesday's episode, producers shook up the formula by making Guiney reject one woman after a date with several of the contestants shown halfway through the program. Later, he cut four more women from the running.

Delgado, 35, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader, was shown putting her experience to work dancing for Guiney onstage with several other hopefuls during the episode.
