Three years after first appearing on The Bachelorette Season 5, and two years after winning Bachelor Pad Season 1, David Good knows a thing or two about the ABC love journey. As good friend Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette season nears, David speaks exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment about just how cool the blonde Southern beauty is — and doles out some advice for her contestants.

“Emily is a good friend of mine,” David explains, adding that they met awhile back in Washington, D.C. In fact, Emily is so cool, David doesn’t think ABC will show “the real” Emily. “They’re not going to show her out in public drinking, letting loose.” And it’s not just ABC who David thinks is protective of Em’s onscreen time; “She really cares about her public image,” David says, explaining that he expects the season to be pretty tame.

But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have his eye on Emily’s contestants! (Watch out, Chris Bukowski). “My message to Emily’s guys would be, don’t even worry about it, because I’m going to marry her,” David jokes, before adding more serious advice for the Season 8 crop of guys. “Just be yourself,” he urges, underscoring a simple — but ominous fact: “You’re on the show to get married.”
