Bachelorette 2012 Spoiler Roundup: Emily Maynard News of the Week — May 19
It’s Bachelorette season, y’all, which means the internet never sleeps — and, instead, keeps one eye on Emily Maynard and her crop of increasingly adorable contestants. What’s Jef Holm been up to since filming, you might ask? The answer is even better than you’d imagine: He’s back to helping the world become a better place by providing clean water to the people who need it. (Confidential to Emily: we hope you put a ring on that one). So, without further ado, here’s what’s been happening in the world of televised love this week:
Did Emily Maynard Sleep With Her Final Three Guys? It’s a crass question to ask, but the answer isn’t anything but sweet. Emily, who previously turned down her overnight date with Brad Womack on The Bachelor because she’s a sweet single mom who doesn’t want her daughter watching her get busy on television, stayed true to her word and kept it PG-13.
Emily “Didn’t Know It Would Be So Hard” In this 3-minute-long preview for the season, Emily can be seen telling Kalon McMahon off using one very stern 4-letter word. Then, we see the beginning of an epic love story unfolding — completely with cuddle sessions in old historic libraries, walking hand in hand through cobblestone streets... It’s the stuff of fairytales.
Emily: Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Could Be a Cab Driver for All I Care Worried that Emily would be upset at having to face another reminder of her ex-fiance, Arie told Em about his racing status on the premiere — and she was fine with it. Her feelings haven’t changed. When asked about her initial reaction to Arie’s profession during a post-premiere media conference call, Emily revealed that she didn’t think it was cruel of ABC to cast him. “I mean, I was really just grateful that Arie was so open about it the very first night he told me.”
