Emily Maynard, the lovely, sweet, young mom who captured America's and Brad Womack's heart on The Bachelor last year, stars as The Bachelorette on May 14.
Unfortunately (and obviously), her relationship with Brad ended, along with the dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family there.
But when one door closes, another opens, and now that she's the one doling out roles on ABC's hit show, she's ready to seek love she richly deserves yet again.
Here's the network's first promo pic of the blonde beauty:
It's hard to meet men as a single mom ... typically. Emily Maynard will have her pick of 25 when she gets a second opportunity as the eighth Bachelorette.
Supposedly, there are some big changes this season. Namely, the show will relocate to her hometown of Charlotte, N.C., and producers won't be casting huge d-bags simply to f--k with the star. Sorry about that, Ashley Hebert.
Anyway, are you looking forward to the new season? Vote in our poll:
