What to Expect in The Bachelorette 2012 Premiere: Helicopters, Skateboards, and Emily Maynard’s First Rose
We’re just days away from the premiere of The Bachelorette Season 8, when Emily Maynard will begin her onscreen love journey to find a husband — as well as a dad to her 6-year-old daughter, Ricki. So, what can you expect from the first two hours of the season? Spoiler alert: It’s already hard to pick a favorite among Em’s 25 guys, from the soft-spoken Jef Holm to the endlessly earnest Doug Clerget. Here’s our rundown of the action coming at you Monday, May 14, 2012, on ABC:
EMILY MEETS THE GUYS - Emily wears a gorgeous gold gown while nervously greeting all 25 suitors - Not one but two different guys greet Emily in Spanish - Ryan Bowers nervously reads Emily a sweet handwritten note - Kalon McMahon quotes Bright Eyes, calls himself a “reformed womanizer”
MEET & GREET - A feud brews between Kalon and… basically everyone else - Sean Lowe gets major Notebook heartthrob points when he gracefully steps in on another guy’s one-on-one time - Arie Luyendyk, Jr., pulls Emily aside to share his emotional connection to part of her past — and asks her if she’s okay with the news - Emily takes an instant liking to skateboarder Jef, adorably gushing, “Jef makes me feel kind of like a nerd. He is super cool, and I hope that he thinks I’m cool, too.” Aw!
So, who gets sent home? Tune in to ABC at 9:30/8:30c on May 14, 2012, to catch all the action.
