It seems that Tim McCormack isn’t the only contestant on season 7 of The Bachelorette that has issues with alcohol! (Poor Tim passes out drunk the first night he arrives and Ashley Hebert boots him before the rose ceremony even takes place. See the clip at the bottom of the post.) Check out the above mug shot of 29-year-old Frank Carpenter from Nashville, Tennessee who was picked up in May of 2008 for driving under the influence, evading arrest and leaving the scene of an accident!
Currently the Assistant Director of Admissions at the Art Institute of Nashville, Frank was sentenced to a year of supervised probation, fined $550 and given 24-hours of community service for the offense.
But the DUI isn’t the only crime in Frank’s past – he also posed for some criminally bad, borderline erotic portraits which he proudly shares on his Myspace page. Here are a few samples:
Ahhhhhh, but it doesn’t stop there for the Frankster! He also has a feloniously egregious go at a singing career with this Youtube clip:
And just in case you needed the deets on the recording that was Frank singing a song he wrote titled “I Ain’t Your Guy” (Sort of the poor man’s “It Ain’t Me Babe“). The performance was recorded while Frank was “driving his old 1992 F-150 on Broad Street through Murfreesboro, TN on 4/3/2006 at 4:28PM.”
Who knows though, Ashley Hebert is a fun-lovin’ gal with a sense of humor so maybe Frank’s flamboyant ways will be able to win her heart. And I have to confess that when the camera angle is just right he looks a little like George Clooney. (Am I crazy?) We will find out what Ashley thinks of Frank starting tonight when Season 7 of The Bachelorette premieres on ABC at 9/8c!
As a little preview of tonight’s episode, here is that clip of Tim McCormack I promised at the beginning of thepost in which he has a bit too much to drink and passes out on a chair – but not before some seriously awkward interaction with Ashley:
