Bachelorette Emily Maynard Forced to Reconsider Guys She Would’ve Rejected in Real World
She's glowing. Whatever else is going on, Emily Maynard is definitely glowing — at least as of early Monday morning on Good Morning America. The Season 8 Bachelorette looked beyond lovely when talking to Lara Spencer about the new season.
They started talking about the bachelors' goofy entrances on last week's premiere. When guys started showing up with eggs, boom boxes and glass slippers, was she thinking "These were my selections?!"
"Kind of," Emily admitted with a laugh. "To be honest. But it was a really great learning lesson for me, because those guys that I normally would have said, ‘No way,’ I was forced to really get to know them and I was really surprised by a lot of them. They’re really great guys.”
(And most of them got dumped in the end, so it's not like she really had to put up with them for long.)
Emily noted that Travis Pope — a.k.a. The Egg Guy — turns out to be a sweetie. “So nice! And you’ll see later on, I tell him he needs to lose the egg. I told him!” (Shoulda told him right out of the limo!)
On a different note, Emily said she was glad Brad Womack, her ex-fiance from The Bachelor 15, was not the one who flew into the premiere on a helicopter. He recently said he was glad their relationship ended and he felt like he dodged a bullet. What's the status of their non-relationship relationship?
"Brad and I are on great terms," Emily said. "We don't really talk as much as we used to, which is probably a good thing, just to put some space and distance between the two of us."
Emily was also on Live! With Kelly today and said she did fall in love this season. So that might explain the glowing.
