Faith Martin has revealed there was one thing about her that bothered ‘Golden Bachelor’ Gerry Turner.
Your age. Martin is now 61 (she was 60 when the series was filmed) and Turner is 72.
Your comments came in an interview with Extra TV. According to Martin, the age difference between the two was the topic of discussions she had with Turner before he selected two other women as finalists. She spoke to Megan Ryte for “Extra TV.”
Here’s what you need to know:
Faith Martin says her age bothered Gerry Turner more than her
When asked at what point she realized she might not be Turner’s choice and whether she thought she would get a rose, Martin replied, “I think I had some concerns.” One of those issues was that Turner lived in Indiana and “their hearts are here,” in Washington state.
She said: “That was a conversation we had and I let him know that this was really important to me.”
According to Martin, it was Turner who “brought up the age thing,” and he told her that he didn’t know if he could “get over the age thing.”
According to Martin, “The age thing didn’t bother me that much. It bothered him more than it bothered me.”
Those are the two biggest challenges they will face in their future relationship, she said.
As a result, Martin admitted she thought there was a chance she would go home.
At the same time, she said, “I felt like the connection that Gerry and I had was very special and had such a deep spiritual level of love and respect, and we had so much fun together.”
She said it “opened me up, and I think that blinded me a little bit, knowing that the outcome could be different, but I was still hopeful.”
Martin said it surprised her when she was sent home, but in another way, she kind of knew:
Faith Martin told the host that she plans to date again and that she would be fine if she doesn’t end up finding love
When asked how she was doing, Martin told the Extra TV host: “I’m fine.” She said she couldn’t attend the rose ceremony where she was cut because her house was so rural. She had to “drive into town” to see it with her son.
As she drove home, Martin said she thought her radio listeners would be “not only angry, but sad.” She said there are so many “warm people” in the area where she lives in Washington state who have supported her for years. According to Martin, she still does a radio show by recording voice recordings every morning.
Martin said she planned to date again and that she wished the “Golden Bachelor” crew could vet any man I would date, explaining that they were “really good at matchmaking.” .
She said her goal is to “do my best, stay open to love and talk more intimately and seriously with a more direct and targeted goal to find someone to spend my life with.”
Martin said this is her new approach instead of just casually dating.
“I think if I date again we’ll get straight to it like on the show because I think that’s what created the strong bond,” Martin said on Extra TV.
She said her son signed her up for “The Golden Bachelor.” Her family was totally into it.
She said her father was “pretty much my soulmate,” and her sons were happy to see she could feel again, but they knew she was a “supporter.”
Martin emphasized that she is resilient and said her family is happy that she is willing to take a risk and show her heart, but she also knows that she “will be just fine if that doesn’t happen.”
She said she wanted to find love. However, she said that she has no regrets about going on the show, calling it one of the best experiences of her life.
