Source: Emily Maynard Asked to Be The Bachelorette

by at . Comments

After Brad Womack famously selected no one in his first stint as The Bachelor, the Texas bar owner was brought back for a second go-around last winter.

He got engaged to Emily Maynard, but that fizzled out before long. Now it's Emily being sought by ABC to return for another stint on the reality franchise.

In fact, the network has already asked her to be The Bachelorette, sources say, and despite her earlier lack of interest, "It's basically a done deal." Wow.

Another source close to Emily Maynard, the single mom of six-year-old Ricki, tells Life & Style that while "she hasn't signed the contract yet, she's fully on board."

Since splitting with Brad in May after becoming engaged to him on The Bachelor season finale, the North Carolina product has been linked to various men.

Jeremy Shockey of the NFL's Carolina Panthers and Most Eligible Dallas cast member Matt Nordgren come to mind, though she has denied seriously dating either.

Perhaps the allure of being The Bachelorette grew on her. "Emily is America's sweetheart," adds the source. "Fans will be thrilled! Everyone loved her."

True. If Emily doesn't pan out, look for a castoff from Ben Flajnik's season to fill the role (The Bachelor spoilers we've read single out a few prospects).

What do you think: Should Emily Maynard be The Bachelorette?


I think Emily would be a great bachelorette she was awesome with brad and I think that if she says yes to this she will defenitly find someone to her reach this time!!


Personally, I think Emily is far too good for this sort of thing. I will definitely watch the show if she's on though. :) She sure is America's Sweetheart and the guy who wins her heart will surely have a fine catch with her and Ricki. All the VERY BEST to her!


Nah! They should go for someone else. Besides Emily said she didn't want to be the next Bachelorette. That comment might bite her if she goes back on her word. I wasn't really that big of a fan of Emily. Found her too saccharine sweet til that ATFR fiasco where she wasn't that sweet at all.
