Emily Maynard, a former “Bachelorette” who seemed to find love on the ABC show, but later called it quits with her chosen bachelor, Jef Holm, spoke out about the latest “Bachelor,” Juan Pablo Galavis, and whether he will find love among his bevy of bachelorettes, according to an Jan. 14, 2014 ABC News report.
When asked on “Good Morning America” if she thought Juan Pablo would find love, Emily said, “Girl, I am not the person to ask… My gut has been wrong too many times for me to have an opinion on that.”
However, she did speak out about Juan Pablo himself, saying “I think he’s just the cutest thing… I’ve been rooting for him since Desiree’s season so I just love to watch him and I think he has a really good group of girls.”
Initially, Emily was one of the bachelorettes on Brad Womack’s season of “The Bachelor,” and ultimately won his heart. After that relationship crumbled, she was chosen to be the next “Bachelorette” and believed Jef was her knight in shining armor. Eventually, that pairing failed to work out and she is now happy and engaged to management consultant Tyler Johnson – who has nothing to do whatsoever with “The Bachelor” franchise.
Emily said she met Tyler before filming “The Bachelorette” and noted, “He never watched it… I think that’s just a true testament to God’s time and how perfect it is. I couldn’t have planned it better.”
