Well, things with Jef Holm may not have quite worked out the way she expected, but it looks like Emily Maynard is now dating NASCAR truck racer Jason White -- which is a pretty good indicator that she's moving on with her life after being The Bachelorette.
According to an eyewitness who saw Emily and Jason at the Carrie Underwood concert in Charlotte last Saturday, "They were all over each other." The source also added, "Jason guided her through the crowd and held her hand as they walked downstairs."
(Aww. He sounds like a pretty nice dude.)
And even though it seems like Emily rebounded fairly quickly after ending her engagement to Jef, it's kind of refreshing to see her going back to her roots and dating a guy who is more her type. After all, her first love and father of her daughter, Ricki, was NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, so it's easy to understand why looking for love in the racing world a second time around would make sense for her.
She definitely deserves a happy ending and finding the man of her dreams just as much as anyone -- and hopefully dating Jason White is a clear sign that she's sworn off looking for love on TV for good. It's clearly not her thing -- even though America loves her, as does ABC, who is apparently considering trying to bring her back as The Bachelorette AGAIN. (Yes, for real!)
But something tells me no matter how much they beg and plead for her to try for a third TV romance, Emily isn't going to cave this time around. Especially not if whatever she's got going on with Jason White turns out to be something serious.
Do you think Emily should swear off TV dating for good?
Update: I chatted with Emily a little while ago via Twitter, and she assured me that's she's still a single gal -- and she's perfectly fine with it.
