As the Emily Maynard rumor mill turns …

According to a tabloid report, The Bachelorette star herself was shot down on the finale by one of her two remaining hopefuls, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Jef Holm.

If that's true, which we doubt, it would make her choice a lot easier!

In Touch "reveals" (i.e. fabricates) today that the man who proposes to Emily Maynard on the season finale Sunday, July 22, was not her first choice.

“He won by default,” an insider spills. Supposedly.

The man who captured Emily’s heart rejected her at the penultimate hour, according to the insider, in an emotional scene filmed for The Bachelorette season finale.

Emily was enjoying a date with one of her final two candidates - read The Bachelorette spoilers to see who wins - when he got a sudden case of cold feet.

“He said, ‘I don’t think we know each other nearly enough to even be entertaining this; I don’t think we should get engaged,’” says the insider.

The Bachelorette: Mom Edition is clearly very different than past seasons.

Not only is Emily Maynard willing to forgo the Fantasy Suite in an effort to set the best example for her daughter, it's little Ricki who shapes her view in the decision-making process, as we saw last night when a teary Emily picked her final two.

On The Bachelorette season finale, it only gets harder. Here's ABC's promo:

Will it be Jef Holm or Arie Luyendyk, Jr.? The Bachelorette spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested. Either way, we'll know for sure soon enough.

Can a person be in love with two people at the same time? Or three? That seems to be the case for Emily, and guarantees the finale will be gut-wrenching.

Who do you think she should choose? Sound off in the comments below, and vote in our twofold survey in the aftermath of last night's Sean Lowe elimination:

The rumor mill us swirling as to who Emily Maynard chooses on The Bachelorette. Spoilers to this point have been accurate ... but what about going forward?

The field of 25 has been narrowed to four, as tonight's hometown dates feature Jef Holm, 27, Sean Lowe, 28, Chris Bukowski, 25, and Arie Luyendyk Jr., 30.

The favorite at this point? Still anyone's guess. Or is it?

There have been reports that Jef, despite looking like the Chris Lambton of this season - great friends with Emily but low romantic chemistry - is the winner.

There have also been conflicting reports that Emily Maynard is engaged to Arie Luyendyk, Jr. after he mentioned his fiancee on a recent call with reporters.

Sean Lowe? How could that guy not be a favorite?

Emily has even been linked (erroneously) to host Chris Harrison and Brad Womack by tabloids in recent weeks in this most unusual Bachelorette season.

For the first time in show history, Sean, Arie and Jef have all done interviews during the season, fueling speculation that each may be the final rose recipient.

What's more, the final three who go on to Curacao after tonight all left the island nation at the same time, making it unclear who finished second (or third).

What do we know about tonight, and beyond? Is there a surprise in store regarding the season finale? Follow the jump for The Bachelorette spoilers ...

Arie Luyendyk Jr. is The Bachelorette's most talked-about guy this season.

The Scottsdale, Ariz., race car driver with the sexy, yet approachable demeanor, sense of humor and emotional openness has been a frontrunner from the start.

It's no surprise that he's rumored to be among Emily Maynard's final three, but did he accidentally reveal who wins this season - himself - on a conference call?

Asked about whether he'd be interested in being The Bachelor if it doesn't work out with Emily, he said, "Well, you know my fiancée might not approve of that."

He then backtracked: "No, I’m joking. I mean, I... No, you know, basically it’s hilarious because I know that’s a hot topic right now but who knows what happens."

"If I am engaged to Emily," he clarified, "then I don’t think it would be possible for me to become the next Bachelor." Well, yeah. But did he just let it out of the bag?

He may well, have but he also offered praise for his competitors, as well.

"There’s a lot of really good guys," Arie said. "It's not that anyone’s better than the next guy. It’s the relationship. I don’t have that feeling to where you know Chris, Sean, Jef couldn’t make for a good father or a good husband."

"The guys that are there now are all very good individuals."

So, basically, Chris Bukowski, Sean Lowe and Jef Holm are sitting pretty along with Arie Luyendyk, Jr. It looks like a scandal is on the horizon for Arie, however.

His shady past, specifically his relationship with Cassie Lambert, a producer on the show, comes to light on next week's episode, and Emily is not happy.

What do you think? Who should Emily pick?

Arie Luyendyk, Jr.'s much-discussed relationship with a producer on The Bachelorette will apparently be discussed on next week's episode of the hit show.

This has been well-documented throughout the season, but until now, it was unclear if Emily knew at all, let alone found out in the middle of the season.

Numerous reports about Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Cassie Lambert have circulated, though his friends have defended him and downplayed the relationship.

What really happened and how will Emily Maynard react?

The surprising preview for next week (above) certainly makes it look like she's not happy, though the producers may be more to blame than Arie here.

According to Reality Steve, when Emily found out, she realized the show's brain trust knew about Cassie and Arie the whole time and kept it from her.

"Arie was told to never bring up the Cassie relationship to Emily and that it was already taken care of," according to Steve, "yet, it wasn’t taken care of."

However Emily does find out about Arie and Cassie having a relationship, it remains to be seen whether it will torpedo the race car driver's chances.

The Bachelorette spoilers we've posted throughout the season offer some hints in that regard. What do you think? Should she kick him off the show?

If she does, she'll be parting ways with one of the favorites. Check out this clip of Arie and Emily on last night's episode, getting cozy in Croatia ...
