During Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard did some vlogs on the official Bachelor site. In her first video, she admitted that, when the ABC bios and photos first came out, she was initially attracted to single dad Bentley Williams. “God knows I love a guy in a plaid shirt.” Then he opened his mouth. Then it was over.

But the rumor/need-high-ratings mill has been churning that Bentley could possibly come on Bachelorette Season 8 to date Emily, since he was so open about preferring her to Ashley.

Would Em go for that? “He would really have to show remorse,” Emily tells People Magazine (via HollywoodLife.com). “But one thing I have learned is to never say never.”

It sounds like both Emily and Chris Harrison are open to the idea, if the guy grovels at their feet. But would Bentley want to come back to reality TV after getting raked over the coals? Wouldn’t he just want to stay far, far away?
