Now that we're approaching the hometown dates, fans of The Bachelorette are getting more and more curious about who Emily Maynard will pick in the end to live happily ever after with. Three of her final four guys, (Arie, Sean & Jef) are amazing, and she really can't go wrong by getting engaged to any of them. (And I won't even mention the fourth dude, Chris, because he's a total nut.)
But even though reports have come out that Emily does wind up with a ring on her finger at the end of her journey, there's now a rumor going around that she's actually in love with someone other than one of her remaining four guys -- and I can't help but be totally over-the-moon excited about the possibility of it being true.
Get this one -- Star Magazine has a report coming out in its new issue that Emily Maynard is dating Bachelorette host Chris Harrison.
OMG!!! If this story is true, can you say holy Bachelorette ratings GOLD? If she somehow does wind up with Chris at the end of this whole thing, especially if she gets engaged to someone else first, people will be more glued to their TV sets than ever. (Can you even imagine the drama on the "After the Final Rose" show?)
Ok, let me settle down for a second, because this is just a rumor at this point, and considering it was started by none other than Bachelor villain Vienna Girardi, we have to take it with a grain of salt for now.
But she does sound fairly insistent that Emily & Chris are an item. Of their supposed romance, Vienna says:
From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys because she really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too. I guarantee Emily and Chris will end up together in the end. If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle.
Ever since Chris Harrison announced his divorce from his wife, Gwen, I've said he was a way better match for Emily than any of the other men on her show. And while Star (not to mention Vienna) isn't exactly the most reputable source -- stranger things have happened, right? (Fingers crossed. Em deserves a decent, mature man, and Chris definitely fits the bill.)
What do you think -- is it possible that Emily & Chris will wind up together?
