New 'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard Is in Over Her Head

emily maynardWell, it's officially official. Fans and potential suitors rejoice, for it's been confirmed that Emily Maynard is the next Bachelorette. Shocking, I know.

Now, despite the complete and total obviousness of ABC's choice, I'm glad Ms. Maynard is giving love another go 'round. On TV.

If for no other reason than she's really fun to look at, I will definitely be tuning in to the two hours allotted for this show every week. And that's of course because I know it isn't just going to be staring at a smoking hot Southern belle, it's going to be chock-full of drama. Look out, Emily, the dirtbags are a comin'! 


In my honest opinion, Emily isn't a good choice for The Bachelorette. Well, she is because she'll make for good TV (and has), but she isn't because she's just too sweet. She isn't savvy enough to navigate her way through all the slimeballs bound to infiltrate the mansion. Some will be there for her (lots, I presume -- again, look at her); others will be there for the screen time. And we don't like those dudes.

Emily is a kind, lovely, fragile flower, and she and little Ricky can't afford to go through a heartbreak again. I'm nervous for her. Nervous that she's not going to have the street smarts to choose the person who's really right for her. I mean, look what happened with Brad. That was a terrible couple, if I've ever seen one. Emily seems like one of the sweetest women ever to grace The Bachelor, but I'm not quite sure she's going to be able to hold her own against all these scheming dudes.

For her sake, hopefully she can. For good TV's sake, hopefully she won't.

Are you excited to see Emily as the next Bachelorette?
