Source: Friend Urged Bachelorette Emily Maynard to Keep Jef Holm Around
Michelle Money and Emily Maynard were the only single moms on The Bachelor Season 15 and they became fast friends. And that’s not the only thing they have in common!
According to Us Weekly, Michelle’s brother Doug is longtime friends with Bachelorette cutie Jef Holm, who also lives in the Salt Lake City area. "When Doug found out that Jef was going on the show, he called Emily and told her what a good guy Jef is," a source tells Us Weekly. "Doug said to keep Jef around. He really thought they would get along."
That would further explain why Emily seemed immediately drawn to Jef — beyond just loving his skateboard and "super cool" vibe — and why she keeps going out of her way to chase him instead of making it the other way around. Maybe it’s an unfair advantage to tell a Bachelor/ette about a contestant in advance … then again, Michelle tried to warn Bachelorette Ashley Hebert about Bentley Williams and that didn’t work. Maybe allfuture contestants should be vetted by Michelle.
