Ashley Hebert’s Bachelorette Blog: Emily Maynard Is Seriously Into Jef Holm
Let’s nail this down: Are we going with Team Jem or Team Jemily for Jef Holm and Season 8 Bachelorette Emily Maynard? We were thinking Jem, so we could really nerd out and call ourselves the Holograms (yes, we’re that desperate to be included; deal with it!), but Season 7 Bachelorette Ashley Hebert just declared herself for Team “Jemily” so now we’re not sure. Up to you.
Anyway, it sounds like Season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Season 7’s Ashley agree that Jef is a great guy for Emily — so it’s going to be pretty awkward if she actually picks someone else.
As Ashley wrote in her Parade.com blog on Season 8, Episode 2, “Don't you all think that the lead singer of Emily's favorite band looks like Jef? If Jef is the one, I am totally thinking that there is some subconscious reminder of something familiar and favorite. We'll see!”
She later added, when writing of the Muppets group date, “However, the most memorable moment of this date for me was when I saw Emily's beautiful black dress and thought, 'Where do I get this?' The second most memorable moment was Jef proposing to Miss Piggy. I seriously got goose bumps. There was something so honest about that proposal. Did you hear the music in the background, too? Show is over. Seriously. I'm team ‘Jemily’ all the way. From having been on both sides, when the Bachelorette or Bachelor tells you that they have been trying to make eye contact with you all day, this is serious, people. Keep your eye on Jef. We know Emily is.”
Yessss! But wait, “show is over” already? It’s only Week 2 and we haven’t seen the steamy kiss with Arie Luyendyk, Jr., yet. The show can end after that!
