Emily Maynard, one of the most famous of all “Bachelor” contestants has really morphed back into the woodwork lately. Other than getting together with some of the “Bachelor” alumni for a charity lemonade stand last week, Emily Maynard is seldom heard from. This will end shortly as she is ABC’s pick for the next “Bachelorette,” according to Perez Hilton.
While it is not known if she has signed on or if ABC is still just in the courting stage, Hilton says reports have Emily as their first choice for this reality show. This is also backed up by MSN, who also reports Emily is in talks with ABC for the next season of the “Bachelorette.”
If ABC lands Emily, they will probably have the most watched season ever, as her popularity even interrupted Ashley Hebert’s attempt at finding love in the last “Bachelorette” season. Some of the contestants made it clear that they were hoping it was Emily they would be courting. One in particular, Bentley went too far with the insults and comparisons of Ashley to Emily.
Chances are Emily Maynard will be the next “Bachelorette,” she is keeping to herself, with no man in her life and when it is rumored she is dating, the rumor is quickly denied. When it is time to reveal the next “Bachelorette,” ample time would have gone by since her break-up with Brad to make a new love on the reality show not look like a re-bound.
