The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard has four sexy suitors left, but the true object affection is newly-single host Chris Harrison, a tabloid hilariously claims.
Star cites "insiders" involved with the hit ABC reality show talking about how close the pair have become, with some even saying they are "madly in love."
While this revelation is new, the "electric attraction" has caused sparks to fly from the beginning, even before Chris and wife Gwen split up this spring.
"Chris openly told staffers that Emily was the most beautiful woman he'd ever laid eyes on," said an insider, who apparently wasn't alone in noticing.
Even former contestants were aware of the potential there.
"From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys," says former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi.
"She really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too, I vacationed with Chris and his family in St. Lucia and know him well."
"He was never with his wife. He's a flirt. I guarantee Emily and Chris end up together. If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle."
Wait ... Vienna Girardi vacationed with Chris' family?
There may not be enough salt on the planet to take this report with. As for who she really picks, The Bachelorette spoilers say little about who does get her final rose next month ... though there are hints as to the final three.
