In the freshman run of the hit ABC reality dating game show, Trista Sutter (née Rehn) picked Ryan Sutter, but Guiney got another chance at love when he was chosen as the star of the fourth season of "The Bachelor." At the end of his season of "The Bachelor," the Michigan native gave his final rose to Estella Gardinier.However, he didn't propose to her and just gave her a promise ring, indicating that they would continue to date even after the show wrapped.Guiney's first appearance on reality television was as a contestant on The Bachelorette, where he was ultimately eliminated by Trista.Although she failed to give him a rose to advance, the two remained friends, and he was invited to her wedding to the winner Ryan Sutter.Gifford joked that he'd lose all his charm as an engaged man, while Kotb wondered if they were "bouncing him" as a guest now that he's planning to walk down the aisle again.Guiney, who got divorced from actress Rebecca Budig in 2010, laughed and took it all in stride. As one of the four members on the Guys Tell All panel, he was first to field a fan's question about how a man knows that a woman is "the one" for him.Guiney published a book in 2003, titled What a Difference a Year Makes: How Life's Unexpected Setbacks Can Lead to Unexpected Joy, describing his life leading up to his appearance on The Bachelorette, and the lessons he learned from his family and friends as he went through a divorce in the previous year.Guiney also performs with the Band From TV, a band of actors from various American television shows who donate the proceeds of their performances and recordings to charities of their choice.
News, Guiney was a divorcé when he made his TV debut in the first season of "The Bachelorette" back in 2003.The band split up in 2000 but reunited as the Bob Guiney Band to record the album 3 Sides, which was released in 2003.The album entered the Nielsen Sound Scan album chart at 114 but by November 30, only around 21,000 copies had been sold and by December 7 the album dropped out of the chart's top 200 list.Shortly after the announcement, Gifford expressed her worry that Guiney might "lose all [his] charm" now that he's getting married.But the soon-to-be groom was quick to reassure her that would not be the case, adding jokingly, "I've been engaged a lot."
