Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette season seemed ripped straight from the pages of a fairy tale, arewerite? From slow dancing to country music in the middle of her hometown to wandering the cobblestone Prague streets, Emily had her hands full of Mr. (Maybe) Rights. Ms. Maynard's final four Bachelors were philanthropist sk8er boi Jef Holm, hunky Texas fitness model Sean Lowe, Dutch-born car racer Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Chicago sports marketer Chris Bukowski.
Emily spent a week meeting the families of her final four — flying from Chicago to Utah (where Jef’s family has a ranch in Saint George) to Arizona to Texas, all in the name of love. There was one major bump on the love journey, however; right before the rose ceremony, Emily uncovered a potentially damaging secret about Arie’s past. Turns out, Arie dated Bachelorette producer Cassie Lambert back in 2003 — and Emily "blew a gasket" after finding out, according to our source.
With that news in mind, we were wary Arie was going to be sent home in the next rose ceremony, which took place in Los Angeles. Turns out, our fears were unfounded — Emily didn’t send Arie home, opting instead to send Chris back to Chicago, according to Reality Steve. During the rose ceremony, producer Robert Mills ominously tweeted, “Final Rose is ready to go. A little too ready actually.” So there you have it: Em's final three were Sean Lowe, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Jef Holm.
