Chris Harrison Shoots Down Talk of Emily Maynard as The Bachelorette

by at . Comments

Rumors that next season will star Emily Maynard as The Bachelorette are greatly exaggerated, according to venerable host-pimp Chris Harrison.

Still, he left the door open for that possibility later.

“It is way too early, way too presumptuous of anybody to say that Emily is The Bachelorette," Chris said this week on Access Hollywood Live.

Harrison said that despite the Bachelorette rumors, Emily's split with Brad Womack is still too raw, and she likely won't seek love on TV again.

“It’s obviously been bantered about. We’re not idiots, we've talked about it, but it hadn’t even been broached to her," he said. "It is way too soon.”

“They're barely even broken up. As far as TV goes, we don’t go into production for six more months. We would never pigeonhole ourselves."

In a tear-jerking interview Monday, Emily said her split with Brad boiled down to commitment issues and her being a single parent to Ricki, 6.

Lamenting the media scrutiny, she sure didn't seem like a girl who would do it again. But you never know. If she did, Chris has a new idea:

“If she were our Bachelorette, I would love to announce it early on and cast for her ... I think it would be a dynamic show, to see the guys that would really step forward, because you know, you’re stepping in as the dad too.”

You certainly wouldn't run into a Bentley situation that way, where he was outspokenly disappointed to see Ashley Hebert as the star. For the latest on the current season, check out The Bachelorette spoilers here. Then tell us:

Should Emily be the next Bachelorette?


OHHHH NO NO NO!!!!! This is horrible.....well if you want fake TV this is the way to go!! This girl is about as phony as it gets ughhhhh. All i can see when she is on camera is her HUGE TEETH and the ginormous OVERBITE!!! erghhhhh not a fan of her at all! I will boycott the next season of the bachelorette:(


William, Ben & if Blake doesn't get a connection on Bachelor Pad 2, off of Ashley's Bachelorette Season 7 should be on with the next Bachelorette Season 8 with Emily Maynard because, she can do better than Brad anyday, (myself I married a Brad & he was a real asshole!) My true thought is That Ben freshley rejected he & Emily should be the ideam because, He would make a good husbend for her & Father for her daughter, plus he has his own business, in California, & if I remmber right I think Emily lives in California also, so she wouldn't move to far. What do you think should happien? Ben & Emily Flajnik? That's my thoughts on the subject! Dotsye-Marie


Please do not have Emily Maynard as The Bachelorette. At first she appeared to be a sweetheart, but when Brad got on his knee and proposed, she was so unemotional. She didn't seem very warm. Don't care for her at all.


PLEASE, PLEASE do not ruin the next season of bachelorett for me by having Emily Maynard on. I just will not be able to stomache her for weeks. It was bad enough last season!! This is a sincere request from a long time viewer.
