Newly svelte ”Bachelor” star Bob Guiney has shed at least 30 pounds and his old rock band, Fat Amy, but he’s still trying to make it as a rocker in case, you know, this reality-TV thing falls through. His solo debut CD, called ”3 Sides” and released on the indie Marley & Matthew label, will be available starting Oct. 7 on and in stores sometime next year.

The official description of the album as posted on the website describes Guiney’s music as ”a sound reminiscent of matchbox 20 [for whom Fat Amy used to open] meets John Mayer with poignant style and depth.”

”I have never quit writing songs,” Michigan native Guiney told hometown paper the Lansing State Journal last week. ”I just wasn’t performing. The name Fat Amy was kind of a joke anyway. I couldn’t use it now, because the band isn’t together.” Guiney plans to tour in support of the album sometime next year, after his ‘”Bachelor” duties are over.

Don’t expect him to dally with groupies, however. [Warning: Spoiler ahead.] With the taping of the series already finished, Bob has apparently chosen a suitor. ”I’m not out there philandering about,” he told the Journal. ”There’s only one woman for me.”
