The Bachelorette: Meet The Men Vying For Emily's Heart
May 2, 2012
Who will she choose for
herself and her daughter?
The Bachelorette Emily's suitors are revealed and we've got photos and bios on all of them.
And who is the mystery man in the helicopter?
We'll get to that and more.
First let's take a quick look at the premiere episode.
What do an athletic stud who says all the right things, a dashing Indy car driver who would like to take a victory lap, a skateboarding hipster who likes a good chase, a successful businessman who loves to make a huge first impression, and a single hunky dad whom you'd like to bring home to mother all have in common?
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, when the eighth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres Monday, May 14th, (9:31-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC.
Emily, 26, a single mom who lives with her six-year-old daughter Ricki in Charlotte, North Carolina, meets 25 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love.
In the premiere 25 eligible men come from all over to try and win Emily's heart.
Immediately, the drama and the one-upsmanship begin as Emily is hit with a bad case of nerves, but that anxiety melts away as soon as the men start to compete to impress her.
Tony makes like Prince Charming and presents her with a glass slipper.
Jef, a successful entrepreneur, springs onto the scene on a skateboard.
Party MC Stevie shows off his "can't miss" dance moves.
Travis offers a gift with a special meaning for Emily and her daughter.
However Kalon is not to be outdone and lands in his private helicopter, much to the chagrin of the other men.
The battle for Emily's attention and affection has only begun.
Once inside the mansion, Kyle, a confident financial advisor, is eager to captivate Emily, but Brent, a single father of six, is busy showing off his voluminous collection of family photos.
Chris, the handsome sales director, makes his mark with some custom bobble head dolls.
But Arie, a professional race car driver, is nervous to share his career with Emily - fearing that it will remind her of her late fiancÚ, Ricky Hendrick.
And Doug, another single dad, shares a tender moment with the Bachelorette, bringing with him a touching letter from his 11-year-old son.
After Chris Harrison reveals the first impression rose, the tension mounts and sparks fly.
Stevie, the brash entertainer, confronts Kalon, the grandstanding wealthy suitor, accusing him of being selfish and insincere.
Emily, unaware of the friction between the bachelors, is wooed away by the skateboarding Jef, who exudes a soft-spoken confidence that impresses her.
Emily finally offers the first rose to a bachelor who was so charming that it would be hard for any of the men to argue with her choice.
One bachelor could relax, but 24 others are very anxious as the season's first rose ceremony begins.
Finally, Emily will have the 19 men who will move into the southern mansion.
