While The Bachelorette spoilers have laid out pretty much the entire season so far with great accuracy, here is a related story we did not see coming:

Jef Holm, who briefly got engaged to Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette, is reportedly in talks to become the next Bachelor star, according to reports.

The 28-year-old is under consideration for the role because he knows how to “turn on the charm," insiders say ... though he may also turn people off.

While Ems herself got the lead part after winning The Bachelor and splitting with Brad Womack, Jef doesn't have quite the same compelling life story.

Despite ending his engagement with Emily Maynard, Jef Holm of The Bachelorette is reportedly not giving up on his dreams of reality TV stardom.

He's trying to get with Ashley Tisdale too, allegedly.

According to a new report, Jef has gotten chummy with Ashley's sister, Jennifer, on Twitter, in the hopes of getting closer to the High School Musical hottie.

Jef became "infatuated" with Tis after meeting at the Jingle Ball in L.A., but is it because of her looks and personality, or her connections in the industry?

"Emily just decided she'd had enough," a source said, adding that she "was extremely miserable, and at her breaking point" toward the end of the relationship.

"She was like 'I'm dying here, I'm dying here' ... just over it. Enough was enough."

While Bachelorette relationships rarely work out, fans had high hopes for these two, given the apparent depth of their connection. So what went wrong, and so fast?

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up last week. They have yet to confirm this officially, but all indications are that they have gone their separate ways.

Recent activity by The Bachelorette couple certainly corroborates this sad truth:

  • They have not written to each other or posted anything about each other since.
  • Holm deleted his Twitter profile pic of himself and Emily. Now it's a solo shot.
  • Emily changed her pic to one of herself and daughter Ricki, instead of Jef.

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm called off their engagement and broke up over the weekend, according to a reliable source who seems to never be wrong.

Reality Steve claims that while no official announcement of their engagement ending has been reported, he knows for certain that the couple is done.

Steve posted the following about Emily Maynard and Jef Holm:

"I don’t care if you say I’m crazy ... until Jef and Emily [confirm it], I guess that’s when you’ll believe it, but I can tell you right now that Jef and Emily broke up this weekend."

"Done. Over. No longer engaged."

Jef Holm, winner of The Bachelorette, denies that his family is affiliated with polygamy, as a recent tabloid report implied (this guy is being put through it all).

According to Emily Maynard's fiance, this latest rumor went too far:

"Now they're going after my family? My family DOES NOT, and HAS NEVER had any affiliation with polygamy. Ever. Mormons = 1�� & 1��. �� = ��."

(The squares are male/female emoticons tweeted from a phone).

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm can't catch a break from the tabloids.

Last month, it was Emily supposedly cheating and getting caught sexting another man. This time, The Bachelorette winner is accused of paying him to stay engaged to her.

A source close to the couple denies those claims, of course.

"Everything is fine between them. They are a great couple and the wedding is definitely on," the insider says, laughing off reports that the engagement is now a "business deal."

Jef Holm and Emily Maynard have certainly been put to the test ever since The Bachelorette ended, but so far, they have passed that test with flying colors.

Between rumors of Emily cheating and the ever-present Bachelor curse (i.e. no one on the show actually stays together), things may not have looked good.

Good thing is, no one bothered to tell them that.

Not only are they not breaking up, they can't stand to be apart, according to E! News, which heard it from the southern belle and Jef Holm themselves last week.

Said Emily Maynard of her husband-to-be:

"It's so crazy how easy it is for me to be around him and um, you're with somebody a lot and you're together a lot and they start to get on your nerves a little bit."

"He does not get on my nerves! We can be together all the time and only leave each other to go to the bathroom, and I will miss him while I'm in the bathroom."

Safe to say she's probably not sexting other men with that kind of mentality. As far as a wedding goes, that is still in the plans; Jef just moved to Charlotte.

She did have something to say about his upcoming bachelor party, joking that ideally, it'll take place on "An all men's island where they do a lot of reading."

Not sure about that, Em, but we wouldn't worry about Jef. In other news, ABC is poised to name one of Emily's finalists Sean Lowe The Bachelor this winter.

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm: Will it last?

Despite what some celebrity gossip sources (cough, Us Weekly) would like you to believe, Emily Maynard and Jef Holm are so totally not on the rocks.

On Good Morning America today, The Bachelorette couple put on a united front ... which is probably just their actual front. They're totes in love.

"It's crazy," Jef said of reports that Emily Maynard was sexting some other man. "That’s just tabloid stuff ... rumors written about us and it's not true."

"Emily and I are so happy. We're great, we’re in love and we’re happy."

The rumors started, and were fueled a second time when Jef Holm's brother confirmed he leaked the story, and swore it was 100 percent true.

This left the People Water company CEO thoroughly baffled.

"I don’t know if he even knows why he did that," he says of the cheating allegations, which he denied again. "But I love my family and I love my brother."

"I support him and I know he supports us as a couple."

Holm went on to discuss his recent move to Charlotte, with Emily saying that they'll begin "chill" wedding planning after he gets settled.
