Emergency alert, Emily Maynard fans: Emily’s rumored new boyfriend looks like what might happen if Ryan Bowers and Jake Pavelka had a son who was old enough to date the Season 8 Bachelorette. So, chew on that for a minute.

We first heard of Emily’s love life in a dream we once had, and also on The Bachelor Season 15, when she met Brad Womack and seemed to melt his frozen, stoic heart. That didn’t work out. Then she met Jef Holm and seemed to get his hip, hip blood all a-pumpin’. But again, notsomuch. So when she confirmed in July that she was with manfriend again, we were throwing rose petals in the air like we just didn’t care (to admit how much we cared).

Even after we heard that he was “embarrassed” by her Bachelor backstory, we were cool with it. But this, this is just too much. InTouch Online reported the dude’s name, Tyler Johnson, and Zap2It did the initial digging for a pic. And you guys? He looks like Ryan Bowers in most pictures, Jake Pavelka in others.

Just look:

This face plus some blue suede shoes? Bowers.

This face plus a TV special airing dirty laundry about his past relationship? Pavelka.

Besides his striking resemblance to two of the most infamous rose touchers in all the land, we know he went to Wingate University, he works as a car dealer consultant, and he’s a “crossfit addict” who loves to be outdoors.

This is all assuming, of course, that this really is the guy Emily’s dating. They follow each other on Twitter and because of his face look, we can imagine him with our girl Em.

Thoughts? Go. We’re all ears.
