--> UPDATE: Emily is the Season 8 Bachelorette! <--
Get ready for a sob story, people: Season 8 Bachelorette Emily Maynard was engaged to race car driver Ricky Hendrick for six months before he passed away in a plane crash. The couple were high school sweethearts, and had been dating for nearly four years (since they were 15!) when Ricky met his tragic end. If that isn't sad enough, days after Ricky's death, Emily found out she was pregnant with their now-5-year-old daughter Ricki.
Four years later, Emily got back on the horse in a major way as a bachelorette in The Bachelor Season 15. She ended up winning over Bachelor Brad Womack's heart, but her relationship with him didn't end up working out because of distance, among other problems. (FYI: She dumped him.) Now, she's back in the public eye, ready to find love one more time.
