New Interview with Emily Maynard, 'The Bachelorette'
Emily Maynard, the newest "Bachelorette" took some time out of her day to answer questions about being on the show and her decision to look for love on TV again.
Emily said that she, "had a million reservations about being the Bachelorette. They had asked me to do it previously and I had said no." She said that coming off of her breakup with Brad she really didn't want to, but then the producers were very accommodating by moving the whole show to Charlotte.
As for Ricki, Emily says that she really doesn’t know a whole lot about what’s going on, and that she’s only 6 years old. She admits that she doesn't even talk about "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" at home and she told Ricki that the cameras are for an elaborate home video she'll get to watch later.
Many viewers noticed that there were a lot more gimmicky entrances than in past seasons. Of those Emily said, "Honestly standing there in the moment I didn’t really notice because I was so nervous it was so overwhelming, and so much to remember, but it didn’t hit me until watching it on Monday night." The weirdest for her was Travis with the ostrich egg she says!
She said that she gave Doug the first impression rose because he's a great looking guy and sweet and that she appreciated him putting himself out there and leaving the biggest piece of his heart at home, his 11-year-old son.
Can you believe that Emily was afraid of what the guys would think of her?! She's gorgeous! She said that, "All the guys had one image of me in their head and then they all said that I was nothing like they thought I would be, I hope that’s a good thing!" She said that in real life she's never been called boring a day in her life.
She said that over all, "it was the best experience, and getting to travel so much and Ricki got to travel with us a lot, and giving her that opportunity, and I learned so much about myself, and they are moments I’ll never get back and never have again and I’m so grateful to have had that experience."
I'll have much more tomorrow when I'm able to post the full transcript!
