The Bachelorette Spoilers 2012: Emily Maynard Men, Final Three, WINNER Revealed!

by at . Comments

Emily Maynard debuts as The Bachelorette May 14, and we're starting to piece together the coming season of the long-running ABC guilty pleasure.

The Bachelorette spoilers revealed thus far show that the men competing from Emily mostly range in age from 25-35, and are Caucasian. Shocker!

She'll meet a teacher, a gym owner, a model, a bunch of of executives, a big-name race car driver (seriously) and a Jef with one "f" (also seriously).

Emily Maynard: The Bachelorette Portrait!

Emily Maynard, 25, won Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor, but that didn't work out. She bested Ashley Hebert, the previous Bachelorette star.

As he did then, Reality Steve has been digging like a madman for spoilers on the upcoming season for those of us who can't wait until the summer.

What has he found out through his mysterious unnamed sources? Quite a bit, and his track record would suggest it's more than a little accurate.

Come along as we reveal the men who will vie for the North Carolina native's heart - and the final four who are left standing! Who are the lucky fellas?

Follow the jump and let's get this party started!

Here's a roster of the men Emily meets on the season premiere May 14:
  1. Aaron Martell, 35, Los Angeles, science teacher at Los Angeles High School.
  2. Alejandro, 25, Mushroom Farmer, Medellin, Colombia 
  3. Alessandro, 30, Grain Merchant, Uberlandia, Brazil 
  4. Arie Luyendyk Jr., 30, Scottsdale, Ariz., former Indy Car driver.

  6. Chris Bukowski, 25, Chicago, sales Manager at the Sears Centre Arena.
  7. Charles Grogan, Nashville, Tenn., volunteer at Monroe Carroll Jr. Children's Hospital.
  8. David Homyk, New York, musician.
  9. Doug Clerget, 33, Tacoma, Wash., vice president at Kidder Matthews.

  14. John Wolfner, St. Louis, Mo., co-owns CitiShred with his father, Greg.

  16. Kyle Dillon, 28, Long Beach, Calif., financial adviser for Morgan Stanley.
  17. Lerone, 29, Real Estate Consultant, Laguna Beach, CA

  25. Travis Pope, 30, Madison, Miss., account executive for the Clarion-Ledger.

Beginning with episode four, with 13 men left standing, here's how things reportedly shake out week by week until we get to the hometowns ...

Episode Four

1-on-1: Doug Clerget. Rose.

Group Date: Boat racing.

2-on-1: John Wolfner and Nate Bakke. Nate is eliminated.

Rose Ceremony: Michael Nance and Charlie Grogan out.

Episode Five

1-on-1: Sean Lowe. Rose.

Group date: Eight guys rehearse a scene from “Romeo & Juliet.” At the after party, this is when Emily blows up at Kalon and he is eliminated.

1-on-1: Jef Holm. Rose.

Rose Ceremony: Alejandro Velez eliminated.

Episode Six (Croatia)

1-on-1: Travis Pope.

Group Date: Six guys and Emily get to watch an advanced screening of Brave and compete against each other in a Hunger Games-esque setting.

1-on-1: Ryan Bowers.

Rose Ceremony: All six from the group date - Sean, Doug, Chris, Arie, John, and Jef - advance. So either Travis and Ryan were both denied on their one-on-one dates, or got roses only to have Emily take them back at the ceremony.

Episode Seven (Prague, Czech Republic)

The ABC press release back on ABC press release lists a lot of the things that were visited while in Prague, without specifying who was on which date. From the press release…

1-on-1: Arie Luyendyk Jr.

1-on-1: John Wolfner.

3-on-1: Doug Clerget, Sean Lowe and Chris Bukowski. Doug is eliminated after becoming upset that one of other guys got a rose and not him (Sean Lowe got it).

1-on-1: Jef Holm.

Rose Ceremony: John Wolfner eliminated.

Episode Eight (Hometown Dates)

Of the initial 25 men, and after weeks of grueling dates, these four make it to the final four for the coveted homedown dates with Emily Maynard:

Jef Holm Picture

Jef Holm: 27, St. George, Utah. He’s the CEO of People Water.

Sean Lowe Picture

Sean Lowe: 28, Dallas, Texas. Fitness model/insurance agent

Chris Bukowski Picture

Chris Bukowski: 25, Chicago, Ill, Sales Manager at Sears Centre Arena.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. Picture

Arie Luyendyk Jr.: 30, Scottsdale, Arizona. Perhaps most notably, a former Indy Race Car driver, and son of two-time Indy 500 Champion Arie Luyendyk Sr.

Chris' hometown date shot in Chicago on Friday (April 20), Jef's was Sunday (April 21), Arie's was Tuesday (April 24) and Sean's hometown date was April 26.

The eliminated contestant, after the hometowns, is reportedly Chris Bukowski, leaving Jef, Sean and Arie. More on that as additional details are revealed.

All arrived home at the same time, so it's still unclear how the final three shake out. If and when we find out, you will be made aware of it immediately.

Episode Nine will feature the final three guys, one of whom is sent home. Then the Men Tell All Special will air before Episode Eleven, the season finale.

UPDATE, 5/14: There is a report online that Arie is eliminated, leaving Sean and Jef to vie for the final rose, and that Jef is the winner. This is NOT confirmed.

Take that with a grain (boulder) of salt, since it doesn't come from a reliable source. We will update this with better intel/info when it becomes available.

UPDATE, 5/15: Brent, Lerone, Jean-Paul, Jackson, David, Randy were cut loose on the season premiere, leaving all the presumed favorites safe so far.

UPDATE, 5/16: Reports say that after the final three rose ceremony, which took place in Curacao, Jef, Sean and Arie were all sequestered, unlike years past.

In other words, whoever was eliminated did not come home right away as in the past. Does this mean the eliminated aspirant reappears in the finale?

Possible, but unclear. It's also possible that the producers simply kept Sean, Jef, and Arie around to make it less obvious who makes it to the final two.

Speaking of the final three, Emily reportedly did not spend the night in the fantasy suite with any of the above. As a single mom, that's probably best!

UPDATE, 5/24: Still going according to what we've heard so far. Emily cut three more men in episode two, leaving the favorites to woo another week.

Ousted so far: Randy Lee Woyak, Lerone Anu, Jean-Paul LaCount, Jackson Longnecker, David Hornyk, Brent Richter, Joe Gendreau, Kyle Dillon and Aaron Martell.

UPDATE, 5/28: You gotta read this new expose on the shady past of Arie Luyendyk, Jr., including his past relationships and ties to a producer of the show.

UPDATE, 5/29: Tony, Alessandro and Stevie got the boot, leaving 13 men remaining after week three. All of the obvious favorites are still on hand.

Still no conclusive word on how the final three shakes out, despite rumors flying that suggest a variety of different outcomes. We'll keep you posted.

Additional date details, pics, and week-by-week date information will be posted as soon as we have those details! So check back often and stay tuned!

UPDATE, 5/31: Details from episodes 4-7 have been posted above.

UPDATE, 6/5: Nate, Charlie and Mike did not receive roses on the fourth episode of the season, leaving the list of favorites above completely intact.

UPDATE, 6/12: Great to see Emily come out of her shell and berate Kalon, who deserved it and was canned as predicted. Alejandro departed as well.

Still no word on how the final three shake out ... yet. However, ABC has sort of confirmed who the final three are based on this extended preview:

UPDATE, 6/19: In a rare, if not unprecedented move, Emily sent both Travis and Ryan packing on their one-on-one dates ... then asked for an extra rose.

Yep, she couldn't part with John or Doug, so no one was sent home at the actual rose ceremony, which you don't see every week. So six men remain.

The previews for next week hint at major drama with Arie, though:

If Emily sends Arie home after this, apparently it's short-lived, because as we know, he will be among the final three she chooses from in the Caribbean.

UPDATE, 6/26: John and Doug were eliminated last night as predicted, bringing us to the coveted hometown dates with Jef, Doug, Sean and Arie.

From what we've read, Chris is on the way out next. After that, it is still anyone's guess, despite rumors floating around that Arie is engaged to Emily.

UPDATE, 7/3: Chris was in fact eliminated after the hometown dates, as predicted. The Bachelorette season finale has also been confirmed for July 22.

That's a Sunday. The Men Tell All Special is July 16.

UPDATE, 7/3, 10:00 a.m.: According to reports, in Curacao, Emily Maynard and Jef Holm get engaged. Reality Steve is on record saying this is accurate.

Is it? We'll have to wait and see. But that's the scoop.

There will be a live announcement on the After the Final Rose special, which takes place July 22 immediately following The Bachelorette season finale.

UPDATE, 7/8, 11:00 p.m.: Sean Lowe reportedly gets a fantasy suite card in Curacao, as does Jef. This extends their dates; neither spends the night.

Arie Luyendyk, Jr., does not get a card ... because Emily does not trust herself, or so the insiders say. At the end of the night ... SEAN supposedly goes home.

That leaves Jef and Arie as the final two, with Jef winning.

UPDATE, 7/10: After an emotional episode, Emily indeed eliminated Sean Lowe in Curacao, leaving Arie and Jef as the last two men standing.

Do you believe it? Are you surprised to hear that dark horse Jef allegedly wins? Comment below, and tell us: Who do you think Emily should choose?


I think we will see her true colors. All those sweet girls and guys those are the ones you have to look for. She is a time BOM , I think we r going to see why her and brad did not last. Now, she is boring and that sweet voice omg! I am going to die. If I have to see this all the time, I think I won't see it. Just the end.


I had heard that Emilys only reason to be on the Bachelor with Brad, was so that she could make it to the top 4 and have a chance to be the Bachelorette. Brad really messed that up by proposing to her! I always figure there is some "flaw" in everyone who comes on the show (unless they are looking for fame like Jake, Ally and others), otherwise why can't they get a date the normal way? Most of the flaws become apparent right away, others you have to look a little deeper to see what is wrong. Oh well, just my 2 cents.


OMG. I can't believe all the negative talk about Emily. Do any of you personally know her? I doubt it. How would you feel if people that didn't know you talked smack about you? Get a life and a clue. This is a TV show much is really true? Plastic surgery, someone said she looks like she's wearing dentures, that she looks like a hooker and is only doing this to find a sugar daddy and corporate sponsor. Shame on you. Her house is big but by all means not a mansion. Talk about the "green monster" coming out. Good thing God doesn't judge like all of you do. You would all be going to Hell if he did. Let a life of your own and leave Emily alone. You all have some very serious problems.


Ummm....if Emily was a gold digger, she wouldn't have to dig very deep! She comes from a well-to-do family and lives in a HUGE house. I think she's doing just fine in the money department. With her looks (and exposure since The Bachelor), she could get many a millionaire.


I think Emily's beautiful and fun to watch. She seems to love her daughter and I don't get on what all the "gold-digger" comments are based. I guess haters are gonna hate; that's what haters do.


I suppose lots of people can see through that Barbie wannabe to find a woman who is riding on the coattails of her daughter's grandparents and looking for more from some poor slob who falls for her plastic look. How truly sad for the child who at six will be exposed to all kinds of adult garbage specifically created by her own mother. In Maynard's quest for the brass ring, she will take down anyone - even her own child. Money is the motive - Maynard can't love.............she's too busy using people.


Btw, I had Jef the winner from the start! He is a gentleman, smart, very charming and down to earth! Good Luck Jef!


I love Emily and her southern ways! I wish her all the best!


I miss Brad, who was by far the handsomest and most gentlemanly bachelor. Can't figure out why it didn't work for Brad and Emily. Maybe I'll figure it out watching Emily's season. You see people in a different light when they're on the other side of the rose ceremony.


I agree with a lot of the comments. I still find her lacking in personality and an interest in other people. I also suspec, and this is just my personal opinion, that Emily will only go for the men with money, and if she doesn't choose anyone, she always has the Hendricks. Did they buy her that beautiful home? Why do I suspect Emily justs wants to grab that paycheck and head to the closest mall to buy "fabulous shoes." She had more feeling in her voice talking about shoes than anything else, except her daughter.
