Emily's 25 men range from Aaron, a 36-year-old biology teacher to Michael, a 26-year-old rehab consultant. Emily got her start as the bachelorette who won Brad Womack's heart on season 15 of The Bachelor. Although the couple parted ways, Emily is hopeful to find love again on the reality show and find someone to join her family and win over both herself and her daughter Ricki.

In The Bachelorette season 8 premier, Emily meets her 25 men in a southern mansion, and one man makes an impressive entrance in a helicopter. Each of the men try to make a memorable first impression, but only one will win Emily's first impression rose.

Before the finale, Emily and her men will have dates in Charlotte, North Carolina (Emily's hometown), Prague, Bermuda, London and Croatia. Host Chris Harrison says that Emily carries herself like a lady this season, which changes the tone of the series, as she looks for a family man.
