In the last few seconds of the first promo for Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette season, we see a mystery man show up in a helicopter. So flashy! The contestants gather on the back lawn, speculating as to who the passenger might be — and one of them yells a sentence that haunts our dreams: “Is that Bentley?” Somewhere in New Jersey, Ashley Hebert shudders at the thought of the ghost of her Bachelorette past.

Bentley Williams made a name for himself on The Bachelorette Season 7 as “Bad News Bentley,” and was arguably the villain of the season. As soon as ABC announced the premiere date for Emily’s journey towards the final rose, we began anxiously wondering if we’d see Bentley return and try to make a go of it with America’s sweetheart. This promo — paired with Bentley’s ominous tweeting about “taking a lil trip” — made us wonder: will Brentley be back?

The answer is definitively no, according to Reality Steve, who adds that the guy who gets out of the helicopter is Kalon McMahon, “who no doubt is this season’s male version of Erica Rose.” Okay, phew, so while Brentley himself won’t be back… Will his bad boy ways return in the form of another contestant? Tune in May 14, 2012, at 9:30/8:30c!
