Let's get one thing straight right up front: Shawntel Newton, the fourth place finalist on 'The Bachelor' this season, loves her job as a funeral director and embalmer, but not so much that she takes all the guys she dates back to the mortuary for a little show and tell on the embalming table.

That was purely the producers' idea, and you can hardly blame them. It isn't every day they get a contestant with such a unique and interesting profession. And that was probably what did her in. Shawntel was released at the end of the hometown visit episode, mostly because Bachelor Brad Womack didn't "deal with death very well."
