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!

Tim McCormack getting drunk on The Bachelorette season premiere made for an awkward situation, but looks tame in comparison to what's up next.

With the field slashed from 25 to 18, Ashley Hebert made her first round of cuts Monday. But as we know, it only gets more gut-wrenching from here.

There's the matter of Bentley and his true intentions. There's emotional turmoil and hard decisions. There's a great deal of heartbreak on the horizon.

Check out The Bachelorette spoilers here to read how it plays out. Now, here's an extended preview, which aired last night, for the rest of the season ...

She was The Bachelorette who let fear get in the way. Or something.

We're not sure that's the best hook for Ashley Hebert heading into the new season of The Bachelorette, given how things went for her on The Bachelor, but ABC has to try something splashy for the promos, we suppose.

Whatever you want to call her, the third-place finisher on the most recent season of The Bachelor is calling the shots now, and begins her quest for love May 23.

Here's your first look at Ashley Hebert in action ...

She's still alive as one of three finalists on this season of The Bachelor. But has Ashley Hebert already been tapped to star on The Bachelorette this summer?

According to Reality Steve's Twitter.

For those unfamiliar with Steve, he is the WikiLeaks of Bachelor spoilers. No one knows how this stuff gets out, but it ends up on his blog and he is good.

Ashley Hebert Picture

How on Earth was a contestant who isn't even eliminated yet named the star of the sequel? We have no idea, and we obviously can't confirm this now.

But odds are still pretty high that Ashley Hebert, the perky dental student and pride of small town Madawaska, Maine, will be the next Bachelorette.

If true, it's not shocking she didn't win The Bachelor. Brad has stronger connections with Chantal O'Brien (the rumored winner) and Emily Maynard.

What is surprising is that Emily, with stunning looks and a touching story that seemed destined to land her the starring role, is not The Bachelorette.

Just the same, Ash is no slouch herself. She's down-to-earth, smart, fun and cute as they come. What do you think of the move? Vote below ...

Would Ashley make a good Bachelorette?

The sixth season of The Bachelorette just concluded in astonishing fashion as Ali Fedotowsky actually picked Roberto Martinez as the man of her dreams.

The most stunning part was not that she let Chris Lambton go before the final rose ceremony to spare him the agony, but that she picked anyone at all.

For weeks, Bachelorette spoilers suggested that Ali is single - that she either chose no one on the dramatic finale, or had already broken up with Roberto.

Not the case.

As for the "shocking ending" promised by the teasers, the "huge risk" Ali took and the "unprecedented" nature of the finale? Now we know. It wasn't about the outcome, but how she handled hard-luck Chris in the final episode of the season.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez hit it off from day one.

Having fallen in love with his rival, Ali cut Chris loose even before his "last chance" date, breaking the guy's heart, but earning his respect in the process.

Start the Make Chris Lambton The Bachelor petition now, fans!

This twist explains the glaring lack of footage of Ali and the guys at final rose ceremony in previews leading up to tonight, because Chris never made it. They couldn't show just Roberto Martinez, or it would have given it away.

And there you have the much-hyped breaking of rules by Ali Fedotowsky - letting Chris walk, laying it on the line with Roberto and hoping he felt the same.

He does. They are engaged and planning their life together.

The Bachelorette did an uncharacteristically good job of keeping the finale's outcome a mystery, from Ali's coy remarks about being "happy with her decision" to the lack of promos. Kudos to them and congratulations to Alberto.

We'll have complete coverage tomorrow and all week, but tell us quickly here: Are you happy with the ending? Will Ali and Roberto last?

With just a few days remaining until The Bachelorette season finale, speculation is still running rampant about what its star, Ali Fedotowsky, decides.

Does she choose Roberto Martinez or Chris Lambton? Does she reject both remaining suitors in what would amount to a huge emotional letdown?

Whatever the case, the show has done well keeping it under wraps. All Bachelorette spoilers we know are the same ones we've known for weeks.

Perhaps this is a testament to the greatness of Reality Steve, god among spoiler fiends for several seasons and perennial thorn in Mike Fleiss' side.

While he stands by what he says happens (follow the link above to read about it), he admits he has been stymied somewhat regarding the finale.

There's even a theory circulating that producers went so far as to film two different episodes of the After The Final Rose special as a smokescreen.

Ali Looking On

Are Ali Fedotowsky and The Bachelorette plotting a real surprise?

Ratings for the show have not exactly suffered as a result of spoilers leaking, but just the same, ABC would likely nix this occurrence if possible.

Would they really go to such lengths, though?

The lack of a single shot of the final rose ceremony in any preview to date is also strange. Could it be there is no ceremony or final rose doled out?

This theory is supported by Ali's vague comments about her tough decision, being content with what she did, etc. But it could be part of the act.

Is it possible that, just maybe, producers and Ali Fedotowsky pushed the decision back until the After The Final Rose special, which is being secretly taped this week, and no one knows the outcome because it hasn't been decided yet?

That's just our hypothesis, but longtime host and pimp Chris Harrison said that something happens on the finale "unlike anything we've seen before."

We've seen people pick no one and go home. This would be unprecedented.

In any case, who do you think Ali should choose?

The Bachelorette season finale is just days away, and viewers are going nuts trying to figure out if Ali Fedotowsky picks Chris Lambton or Roberto Martinez.

Or, if you're the type to believe The Bachelorette spoilers we've teased for weeks, she rejects both, and is single to this day. What does she have to say?

“I was trying to be smart and fall in love with my heart, but use my head too,” she told People in its new cover story of starring on The Bachelorette.

“Sometimes the right thing is the hardest thing to do, and it’s definitely hard to hurt somebody. No matter what happens in the end, I hurt somebody.”

Hmm. There's that, and there's Us Weekly, which is really going out of its way to convince us she's engaged, despite offering absolutely no evidence.

Which is it - and if she is engaged, to whom? Is it true what other sources say, that Roberto proposes? If he does, are they still together now?

  • Rule Breaker
  • Secrets of the Proposal!

DIFFERENT STORIES: Ali's engaged? Some beg to differ.

It's worth noting that mere days before the final rose ceremony, no clips of her standing with either guy, or of the guy(s) walking toward her has been shown.

Was there no final rose ceremony? Was it filmed in secret to prevent the outcome from being leaked? Is ABC just bad at promoting its cash cow reality show?

Whatever the case, it's definitely odd, since Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez are both so popular. Even fans who prefer one or the other really like both.

Host-pimp Chris Harrison says the finale is "surprising" and "unlike anything in the history of the show." "It's true from the last chance dates," he told E!

"And from those on into 'proposal day,' at the end. Everything is different than what our fans have seen in years past. People will be surprised. Whether it's good or not, Ali's happy with it and she's sticking by it. It'll be interesting."

Hmm. After seeing her recently, Chris adds:

"She looked healthier, she looked happy. She had a smile on her face and a bounce in her step again. The season took a lot out of her. It was a rough road, but she's good. She's very happy and content with what she did."

The Bachelorette season finale is fast approaching, and there continue to be conflicting accounts as to whether star Ali Fedotowsky is engaged after it.

According to The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, she's single right now. But others, such as Us Weekly, say the finale ends with a ring on her finger.

Of course, both could be independently true.

Following the shocking 180 by Frank Neuschaefer, only Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton are left vying for Ali's heart - with Roberto the frontrunner.

A new round of Internet reports suggest that Ali does in fact get engaged on the Bachelorette finale to Roberto, while wearing a beautiful gold gown!

Too bad this can't be independently verified.

Ali Fedotowsky, Roberto Martinez

The Bachelorette's Ali and Roberto: Are they engaged?

These same reports suggest that Roberto Martinez will propose to Ali Fedotowsky but just a few weeks after the show, Ali becomes single yet again.

Can you see it? We sort of can. Frank leaving the way he did threw her for a loop, and as infatuated as she is with Roberto, she knows it's a big risk.

We haven't listed sources here for a reason, however.

None are credible enough to warrant a mention. But the "inside" rumors about the Ali-Roberto engagement have been flying in Bachelorette forums.

Will Roberto propose, or is Chris L. ready to shock the fan community by winning her heart? If there is a proposal, do you think Ali is still engaged?

That question remains to be answered. Don't expect tonight's Men Tell All special to shed light on it, either. It's even more filler than most weeks.

Who do you think she should choose?

The shocking betrayal of Ali Fedotowsky by Frank Neuschaefer wasn't the last you'll see of him on The Bachelorette: He's coming to the After The Final Rose special.

That airs after the season finale August 2 and features interviews with Ali and the last man standing - if there is one - and usually the runner-up or runners-up.

Frank, who was one of the final three, left the show on this week's episode after confessing to Ali that he still had feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Caruso.

Don't get the wrong idea. Frank does not appear on the finale itself, and The Bachelorette spoilers we've read don't suggest any kind of dramatic return.

His After The Final Rose visit will just be to talk about what happened.

Frank and Ali

An aspiring screenwriter, Frank has been criticized for joining the show "for the wrong reasons." But sources close to Frank say it really was to fall in love.

“If he does [go on the special], it won’t be for fame but to stick up for his name,” a fellow Bachelorette contestant said. “He is a nice, level-headed guy."

While Frank’s last-minute departure may paint him as a villain to some fans, he went into the situation trying to do the right thing for all parties involved.

“I think he truly was falling in love with her, but he had unfinished thoughts about his ex," said the source. "I believe he made a mature decision to see her.”

In Frank's defense, it's also easy to see the scenario floated in some circles that he wanted to leave earlier, but was coerced into the dramatic exit by ABC.

He and Nicole are also still together, so maybe his decision was the right one? Or maybe they planned this whole stunt all along ... who are we to say?

We want to know what YOU say about who Ali should pick now:
