If Emily ever loves me the way she loved her ex-fiance, I'd feel like the luckiest guy on earth. I always said I wanted to find a truly sweet woman to spend my life with. Emily is that woman. That smile, that beauty. I'm so happy every time I'm around her. She makes me want to be a better man. I want Emily to be my wife.

Not exactly your standard open-ended, vague tease, is it?

While The Bachelor spoilers have said one thing, then another as far as who wins Brad Womack's heart Monday night, perhaps the most telling indicator is the above quote, straight from the star himself in the season finale preview below ...

Both Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard are great catches, but only one will walk away with the final rose. No, he's not ditching both like he did last time around.

We ask: Who do you think should win The Bachelor?

The traditional two-hour filler episode of The Bachelor provided no huge revelations, but there were some fireworks last night on the Women Tell All special.

The Hot Seat was aptly titled at times. We'll take what we can get.

How didit all  play out when Brad Womack's outcasts reunited for mediation sessions with host-pimp Chris Harrison? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

First, props to the great Chris. This is who you'd want in the room if you were being sued. Not as an attorney, just a debonair, calming, pimping presence. Plus 13.

We don't recognize half of these women and we watch every week. Minus 15.

One of the season's final four, the adorable mortician Shawntel N., did not say a word. Did she not wish to? Is she not interesting enough? Either way, Minus 11.

There will be a Bachelor Pad 2. It will feature Vienna Girardi. Plus 10.

Michelle Money was the unquestioned highlight of the night, using all her camera time to bash the other women, then crying when they turned it around. Wash.

Dramatically trying to catch your breath, Michelle? Acting much? Minus 4.

Chantal O'Brien. Emily Maynard.

The Bachelor star Brad Womack says both "would make incredible wives, incredible mates" and that he labored over who to give his final rose to.

"Both had qualities I was looking for," he said during a taping for the Women Tell All special tomorrow night, with the season finale set for March 14.

Chantal O'Brien is "up for everything, fun ... we hit it off early. There was immediate physical chemistry. But we had a lot of highs and lows."

Brad Womack and Emily Maynard

"When she gets so upset, like she did in Anguilla, it makes me wonder if we could find that rhythm and make it work for the rest of our lives."

As for Emily Maynard? Brad calls her "an incredible mother – [a] really sweet and a caring, sensitive woman that is also quite easy on the eyes."

"She went through a tough situation with the plane crash and becoming a single mom. But she rose to the occasion beautifully. I admire that."

"She makes me a better person when I am around her."

So who's it going to be? The Bachelor spoilers have indicated a finale with these two for months, but the winner has long been in dispute.

One thing's for sure - Brad is not dwelling on either's past.

Emily Maynard. Chantal O'Brien. The Bachelor spoilers have predicted one, then the other (follow the link for the most current speculation and reasoning).

Soon we will know for sure who Brad Womack chooses. Will it be Chantal, whose chemistry with him is so obvious, or Emily, the fan favorite from Day One?

Who do you want to win The Bachelor, Chantal or Emily?

The Bachelor season finale is rapidly approaching and in light of the recent Bachelor spoilers we've relayed to you, Emily Maynard is coming increased scrutiny.

Is the gorgeous, sweet single mom from Charlotte hiding something? In Touch wants you to believe that, setting out to expose everything bad about Emily.

But is any of this true? And should it dissuade Brad if it were?

Tricked By Emily's Lies!

First, her "secret celebrity fling." True or not, it almost certainly happened before they met and Brad has his own past with Laurel Kagay. So, no big deal.

Second, she's a gold digger obsessed with fame? She sure doesn't act like it, and from all indications, her family and her late fiance's are QUITE well off.

Speaking of the late Ricky Hendrick (the father of her daughter Rickie), ITW claims his engagement to Emily Maynard is a sham. Okay, this is ridiculous.

Certain elements of her back story are going to be embellished by The Bachelor. It's a TV show. But this looks like nothing but a tabloid smear job to us.

Whether or not you want her to win, Emily's done nothing to suggest that she's the slightest bit disingenuous. In fact, she seems like an upstanding girl.

In any case, who do you want to win The Bachelor?

In light of The Bachelor spoilers, revealing not only the rumored winner of this season but the rumored Bachelorette this summer, last night was not a shock.

You didn't even need any spoilers to predict this outcome, honestly. With two of Brad Womack's remaining three women, there is serious chemistry going on.

With the third, it's like they had been trying too hard to make it work.

When you have to try that hard, it's not meant to be. So it goes. How did everything play out in South Africa last night? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

We're not usually enamored with their choice of venues, but South Africa truly is stunning, especially in HD. You really feel like you're there in person. Plus 8.

Chantal O'Brien has put on noticeable weight this season. She looks hotter! We worry she may be a stress eater, but it doesn't look bad on her at all. Plus 5.

Wisdom from Chantal: "If I'm getting engaged to someone, the thought is that I'm planning on marrying them, not getting engaged thinking that I'm going to get unengaged." Who does she think this guy is, Jason Mesnick? Minus 7.

Speaking of, happy anniversary to Jason and Molly, who honeymooned at this very South African reserve (what are the odds). Glad they're going strong. Plus 4.

Chantal was QUITE excited about getting it on. Plus 3, but ...

The fantasy suite is an outdoor treehouse? Cool as it is that such a thing exists, that sounds like every woman's nightmare, not fantasy. Fail, Chris. Minus 6.

This evening on The Bachelor, Brad Womack takes his final three potential wives - Ashley Hebert, Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard - to South Africa.

There can be only one Final Rose doled out March 14, though, which means two emotional decisions await Brad before then. Two beauties must be cut.

We now know for sure who wins that final rose - and if you've been reading The Bachelor spoilers up until now, it's actually NOT who you think.

Will Brad pick Ashley (left), Chantal (center) or Emily (right)?

Last week, we reported that one of the women above would be the next Bachelorette. This still appears to be the case. But the winner of this season?

Intelligence now suggests a different conclusion to the finale than we believed to be accurate as recently as this weekend. So who's it gonna be?

Last night on The Bachelor, four lucky women brought Brad Womack home to meet their families across this nation. Three will accompany him to South Africa.

It was quite the two-hour episode, featuring a trip to the mortuary, an awkward date with Emily's daughter and plenty of slice-of-life moments for ol' Brad.

How did last night play out? Who's going on to the final destination and whose trip home turned out to be one-way? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

With no time in the mansion and no Michelle Money, that means no festering drama or cat fights this week. Plus 5. But also Minus 4, 'cause we miss you Michelle.

Minus 3 for the random, unexplained stop in New York.

Date #1 goes to Chantal O'Brien, who The Bachelor spoilers seem to think has a good chance of winning this thing. Plus 6, because you can absolutely see why.

If Brad Womack ever appears like he's natural or semi-normal, it's with Chantal. Plus 7. When they discuss moving in together, you know she has a leg up.

The Bachelor is usually all about the women doing all they can to avoid being sent home by the star. But the case of Emily Maynard, the tables are turned.

After weeks of Brad Womack wondering if he'd ever get to meet the single mom's little girl, the pair finally come face-to-face tonight. But how will it go?

While Maynard is cautiously optimistic, she's also realistic about things: "If Brad and Ricki don't mesh, it would be just like Brad and I not meshing."

Will this be the deal-breaker for Brad - or for Emily? Here's a sneak peek:

Michelle Money, who was sent home after her amazing SI Swimsuit Issue mauling of Brad Womack on The Bachelor this week, has no hard feelings toward Brad.

Nor does she harbor any ill will toward Chantal O'Brien, her biggest rival.

That said, she's definitely pulling for Emily Maynard to win it all.

"[Brad] needs someone soft-spoken and feminine. She's just a Southern belle, ladylike and sweet. Emily will be the one who ends up with him," she says.

"If that's what she wants. It'll be more about her choosing him."

Emily Maynard, of course, has had her own struggles opening up.

As for Chantal? "I don't have anything against her," Money swears. "She's a beautiful, smart woman. It's unfortunate everyone only got to see the catty side."

"Chantal was hard to know. She keeps her distance from women. I ever saw her, I'd give her the biggest hug, [but] I still don't think she's right for Brad."

What do you think? Who's better for Brad?
