ABC announced that the 37-year-old would front a second season of the romance reality show yesterday, following his previous attempt to find love in 2007 where he did not choose either finalist on the season finale.
In a press release, the network said: "[He] has spent the better part of the last three years going through a radical personal transformation after the shocking finale night that changed his life forever.
"Now he is really ready - healthier both in body and mind - to make a genuine commitment to a relationship."
The network also revealed that Womack has "undergone intensive therapy" and completed a "painful journey of self-awareness" since his stint on the show, and is "more ready than ever to find a wife and start a family".
The statement added: "Brad is convinced he is a better person in many ways than he was in 2007. Get ready to see a changed, revitalized man who is still optimistic and confident about finding love on The Bachelor."
Womack - who lives in Austin - was officially unveiled as the next Bachelor during last night's edition of Dancing With The Stars, where he appeared alongside franchise host Chris Harrison in the audience. His return marks the first time that a previous contestant has been given a second chance to find love as The Bachelor.
The Bachelor returns to ABC in January 2011.
