by at . Comments

ABC has released, in the form of a season overview, more details of Emily Maynard's search for love, commencing Monday, May 14 on The Bachelorette.

While kicking things off in her hometown of Charlotte, Emily will travel to Dubrovnik, Croatia; Prague, Czech Republic; and London, England this summer.

The 26-year-old former Bachelor winner first meets her 25 suitors at a southern mansion for a cocktail party after putting six-year-old daughter Ricki to bed.

Several of Maynard's bachelors will attempt to make memorable first impressions during their arrivals as always ... that's par for the course on this show.

Think actual glass slippers being presented, dudes riding in on skateboards, a party MC who breaks down into dance, and a gesture from a true southern gentleman who gives Emily something to symbolize how he'd protect her and Ricki.

In addition, Maynard will also encounter one suitor who makes a grand entrance in a helicopter ... is it Brad Womack? Is it Bentley Williams? No and no.

The promos always mislead you that way ...

Anyway, once the cocktail party begins, the competition to impress Maynard only intensifies, as a "confident" charmer gets upstaged by a single dad of six.

A "handsome" man gives her a pair of custom bobblehead dolls, a bachelor is nervous to explain his career because it may remind her of her late fiance, and another single father brings her a heartfelt letter from his 11-year-old son to read.

The mood then turns serious when host Chris Harrison arrives and reveals it's time for Maynard to present one of the men with a first impression rose.

The men will become increasingly competitive, as Emily decides to award the special rose to one "charming" bachelor ... a decision surprising nobody.

The Bachelorette season premiere will conclude with Maynard whittling her 25 bachelors down to 19. But she's just getting started at that juncture.

Emily Maynard's around-the-world dates will include:

  • Traveling to Bermuda where she must eliminate three bachelors before leaving.
  • Visiting London for a week where she'll receive a double-decker bus tour of Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park along with a solo dinner in the Tower of London and watching a group of suitors perform scenes from "Romeo and Juliet" in Stratford-on-Avon.
  • Traveling to Dubrovnik where she'lll watch Pixar's upocoming Brave movie and a group of bachelors will compete in a round of Highland games to win extra time with her.
  • Going to Prague where Maynard and her remaining bachelors will enjoy a private dinner cruise down the Vltava River, explore a medieval castle, and check out the Lennon Wall of Love and a spooky dungeon.

After four hometown dates, the final three men will then have "exotic" overnight dates with Maynard in an undisclosed location. According to ABC, obviously "there are surprises in store for Emily that will shake her world."

Color us shocked and in utter disbelief.


i hope my parents dont find out that me and Yas had a threesome with sokol


i cannot believe that i had sex with both of the Tsarnaev brothers


What a childish show that was........was very disappointed in the enhtire thing, can't you do any better than that? I am sure you lost a to of viewers after the show with the Muppets in it. Hey, this show is supposed to be for adults, right? Better ship Emily out or you will lose a lot of viewers.........just my opinion.


I wish I was pretty


Yeah, abc really screwed up! My brother, who should be on the cover of GQ, had signed the contract for the show because he wanted to meet Emily, in which he has never met her, but lives in Charlotte and attends the same church! 2 days before filming they cut him with no explanation. He was on the phone with the casting crew telling him what to pack and then the producers pulled that crap! Oh well abc's loss and he told them to.screw off when they offered him a spot on Bachelor pad bahaha sorry my brother isn't some trashy guy that wants to hook.up ! Abc u wont be getting my ratings! U people are heartless!


I have seen her suitors. What a bunch of plain looking guys! Poor thing ABC really screwed her in her choice in men. Slim pickings from what I have seen. Maybe she will pick the race car driver. Yep, there is supposed to be one of those on there. This should be interesting!
