Emily Maynard Scores Best Pickup Lines in 'Bachelorette' History

Hot List 9

emily maynard

Emily Maynard may be the sweet-as-pie Southern belle with the heartbreaking back-story, but that's not what makes this season of the Bachelorette the best ever. (In all honesty, she's a bit on the dull side and it's off-putting the way her face doesn't move when she talks.)

The reason the ABC lovefest is a must-watch this time around? Somehow the producers have managed to corral the cheesiest guys on the face of the planet. The result? The most ridiculous pickup lines in the show's history. Who knew finding love could be both cringe-worthy and comic gold at the same time. Let's revisit some of the best.

More from The Stir: 10 Reasons to Pity Emily Maynard

  1. Jackson: (on bended knee): "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away. This is one of those moments."  
  2. Chris: "I am truly blessed to be standing here with you right now."
  3. Aaron: "I am a high school biology teacher but I'm here to have chemistry with you."
  4. Alessandro: "Emily you are real!"
  5. Lerone: "I think the fact that you are a single mom is one of the most attractive things about you."
  6. Tony: "The names Charming, Prince Charming and I am looking for my princess. I believe in fairytales. I believe in love and I believe if the shoe fits, me and my princess will live happily ever after."
  7. Travis: "This egg is a symbol of two beautiful people -- you and Ricki. Throughout this journey, I will take care of this egg like I'd take care of you and Ricki."
Wow. Keep it coming guys!

Would any of these come-ons make you swoon?

What was with alll the gimmicks this time? It seemed like there were only maybe 2 guys who acted normal when they introduced themselves. The others either had a line or a prop which made them look like a tool. Surely this had to be a set-up, I mean I haven't been in the dating scene for years and years but if I was and encountered most of those guys I would declare myself single forever. Also, I don't care for Emily, I don't feel like she is doing this for love, I think she is doing it for the attention and money.

Other than the bended knee, Jackson's line was the best one. Unfortunately I'm a hopeless non-romantic and if someone said that to me in real life I would have rolled my eyes and let him know fancy words aren't the key to my "fancy pants" ifyaknowhatimsayin. Also the guys talking abt my kid would have been sent right back to the car. I'm upfront abt my child but trying to use him to win points is a huge no-no for me. Just simply letting me know that you don't have issues with dating women with children is enough. No need to talk abt taking care of him or saying it makes me attractive. Corny and tacky. We're here for me right now lol!

2 and 5 weren't that bad, but I don't watch the show so maybe they sounded worse?

I saw some of these on The Soup last night and my husband and I agreed that she should be able to reject guys based on their entrances, just like if a guy hit on her in real life. Especially the dork who danced into the house. I might actually watch the show for that.

I can understand the guys wanting to do something special on the first introduction (and could be the only) to stick out in her mind from 25 other men. Some (most) were so cheesy-I don't see how see could keep a straight face. IMO-I think the ostrich egg was the worst, or wait, maybe the old lady....how in the world can you look attractive after that? Jeez. She is pretty with a cute little body in a barbie doll kind of way. Sould be interesting...at least for a Monday night.

Once a pit lizard always a pit lizard.

I heard from numerous sources she is a gold digger and was out for money. Her lifestyle is having lunch at the four seasons as it were going to fast food restaurants. Brad about went broke sending her designer anything to win her back which she never returned back to him. She realized that he couldn't support her lifestyle so she broke it off with him. It's also strange that Jef's parents couldn't put their obligations aside to meet Emily. If they do not like her, Jef will break ties with her. Rickys parents have been supporting her and lil Ricki, but heard they are mad at her and cut her off, not with Ricki which they shouldn't do. Between them being filthy rich and Rickys life insurance running out she needed a sugar daddy or should I say sugarBoy.
