OMG. Can someone please explain to me how in the hell Emily Maynard managed to make it through the Curacao fantasy suite episode of The Bachelorette without actually spending the night (not to mention indulging in all sorts of fun fantasies) in one of the suites with any of the remaining dudes? Good GRIEF -- that girl has some serious self control!
I won't lie -- I highly doubt I'd be able to hold back if I was in her position, especially considering how amazing Sean, Jef, and Arie all are. I mean, I know she's a mom and all, but it took some crazy restraint on her part tonight to be able to resist the temptation of having a few camera-free hours to spend with her final three men. (Am I the only one who needs a cold shower right now?)
And all I can do is applaud her for sticking to her guns and setting an incredible example for her daughter, Ricki. Emily is a well behaved lady in every sense of the word, and it was even more evident after seeing how emotional she was when it came time to choose which one of the guys she was going to let go.
All of her one-on-one dates were incredible, and honestly, it's obvious that she has a strong connection with all these men. Sean Lowe is the epitome of the word "sweetheart," plus he's incredibly good looking, loyal, and really seems to have a genuine desire to be a devoted husband to Emily and a father to Ricki.
And then there's Jef Holm. Holy moly. Don't even get me started on how completely amazeballs Jef is -- because my husband will probably divorce me if I don't shut up about him soon. He's everything every woman dreams of -- funny, smart, successful, and exactly the right amount of dreamy & romantic without being cheesy. (But if he ever said the words "bridle these passions" to me, I'd have to take charge and do everything in my power to convince him to let his morals go for the night.)
And that brings us to Arie Luyendyk, who is so incredibly hot and appears to know how to make out better than any suitor in Bachelorette history. (That's all I've got to say about him.)
Of course, one dude DID have to leave tonight, and of course, it wound up being Sean. (Duh.) He's perfect in every sense of the word, but it's just so obvious that Emily's chemistry is 100 times better with Jef and Arie. But I have to admit, I kind of wanted to throw up after Sean got in the car & drove off. When he said his first thought upon seeing Emily at the rose ceremony was that she was his future wife? I really, really felt for him in that moment. (Don't worry Sean, because there are millions of women across America ready & willing to mend your broken heart.)
And then there were two -- Arie and Jef. Who do you think Emily Maynard will pick on the final episode?
