Mrs. Carter: Emily Maynard has found love again, and this time without the help of a reality TV show.
The former winner of “The Bachelor” and star of “The Bachelorette” has already been engaged to marry both Brad Womack and Jef Holm, but the relationships each ended within a few months of the show airing the “After the Final Rose” special. While she was rumored to be in a relationship with a number of people since she and Jef split, she seems to have finally found the right person for her in Tyler Johnson.
The proof? Emily announced her engagement to Us Weekly, saying that there were five separate bands that Johnson, who is a management consultant, used in the proposal:
“We’re really excited!! He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!”
As for a wedding, Emily told the publication that she really did not understand a need at all to really wait to tie the knot. She is planning to make that first trip down the aisle sooner rather than later, but did not give many details when it comes to a date. Emily is actually following a path now that is very similar to most former stars on “The Bachelorette,” who manage to find love in a way that does not include the ABC series. While Ashley Hebert, Trista Sutter, and Desiree Hartsock so far seem like they have each found love thanks to their experiences on the show, the majority of the other leading men and women ultimately had to look for love elsewhere.
Later this month, Sean Lowe could become the most-successful star of “The Bachelor” as he marries Catherine Giudici. He was originally in third place on Emily’s season, and had one of the more emotional farewells in show history.
