Sorry, Bachelorettes. Adam Scott proababy won’t be ‘The Bachelor.’ Turns out, he wasn’t one to begin with.
The Masters champ broke the news of his relationship to CBS This Morning’s Charlie Rose and Gayle King — well, mostly to Gayle King — on Wednesday.
“That’s all quite embarrassing,” said Scott of the attention, “but I’m not single at all. I am very much in a relationship, and very happy at the moment.” Scott (heart)breaks the story at 3:40 in the video below. Or, if you choose to watch it all the way through, after Gayle King drops the line, “You are very hot, Adam Scott,” and Charlie Rose checks out completely:
Bummer, ladies. Though there’s hope in “at the moment,” that’s probably quashed by the emphatic “at all.” Guess this also takes Scott out of the running for the title role on The Bachelor, which was mentioned as a possibility on Tuesday.
Scott says he is dating a woman named “Marie.” If we investigative journalists — er…incorrigible busybodies — at Golf.com had to guess, that might well be Marie Kojzar, whose on-again-off-again relationship with Scott got ink in Alan Shipnuck’s 2008 SI profile of the Aussie. Or, he just has a thing for women named Marie. We’ll let TMZ work out the specifics. Whoever Marie is, let’s just hope she has something to wear that goes well with green.
