We give The Bachelor a hard time for being scripted and full of contrived nonsense on a weekly basis, but last night was legitimately emotional and warm.
All thanks to Emily Maynard.
Just three weeks in, she's already proven one of the sweetest, most likable and most beautiful contestants in Bachelor history. How do you not get behind that?
As our official recap of last night's episode discussed, not even a group of catty chicks can find a reason to hate Emily Maynard. That's saying something!
Her one-on-one date with Brad Womack, which we've posted in its entirety above, started off awkwardly because she was afraid to open up to the guy.
Unlike typical Bachelor baloney, however, she's guarded for good reason. Her story even left a vampire in tears, and Brad was understandably moved.
Will she make it far? The Bachelor spoilers we've compiled so far indicate she's got a good shot. Will she get engaged and become Mrs. Brad Womack?
If not, she'd better be The Bachelorette. Start the campaign now.
