Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette has only just begun, but we already know a lot about her guys — including who makes it into her final four. ABC’s already filmed the four hometown dates across America, documenting the moment Emily meets each of her final four contestants’ parents. It’s that serious! So, we need to do a quick temperature check of our feelings about these guys — because we’re right around the corner from getting incredibly invested in the season’s outcome!
One thing’s for sure: Emily’s got her hands full of hunks this season. First, there’s Jef Holm, the sweet-faced blonde 27 year old from Utah who co-founded People Water, a company that works to provide clean water throughout the world. Yeah, so he’s kind-hearted, creative, and gorgeous. And he comes from a family of six kids! Jef’s adorable qualities are seemingly exponential.
Then there’s darling Chris Bukowski, who has a lot of feelings, even apparent in his first date with Emily in Charlotte, high-fiving her and looking bashful while walking arm-in-arm with her. Chris got Em’s first hometown date, whisking her off to Chicago. Chris has an accomplished career in sports marketing — and is apparently so talented his coworkers have taken to gushing about him on his LinkedIn profile.
Up next: Arie Luyendyk, Jr., arguably the shiniest horse in this race. Arie is auto-racing royalty; his father, Arie Sr., won the Indy 500 not once but twice. In addition to being blessed with piercing sky-blue eyes, Arie was born in the Netherlands, a fact that basically doubles his suave points.
Last but certainly not least (especially where rock-hard abs are concerned) is Sean Lowe. Sean hails from Texas and is a fitness model and insurance agent. He was the MVP footballer at his high school, and continued to work his magic on the field in college, at Kansas State University. Another fun fact: Sean set his sister Shay up with one of his college teammates — and now she’s married to him!
So, time to play a little game of Bachelorette Sophie's Choice: Who's your favorite?
