Spoiler alert! It's almost time for the Season 8 premiere of "The Bachelorette," and fans of the rose-filled reality series are ready for love. But is single mom Emily Maynard?
The spoiler sites have been working overtime in anticipation of the upcoming season, so check out our roundup of what to expect this season on "The Bachelorette."
The Top Guys
An ABC press release has already revealed that Emily's eligible bachelors include a marine biologist, a wealthy entrepreneur, and a former pro football player, while her other suitors include a musician, a fitness model, and a race car driver. There is also a single father - of six! (According to Zap 2 It, there are several other single fathers on the cast, a first for the show.) But let's cut to the chase. Ahead of the show's premiere, "Bachelor" blogger and spoiler king "Reality" Steve Carbone has already revealed Emily's final four guys. You can see a spoiler list that includes the names and occupations of the final four guys here.
Photos from Emily's dream dates have been posted all over the Internet, so you don't have to look far to find out that Emily and her men travel to Bermuda and Prague, Czech Republic, where dates include a private dinner cruise down the Vltava River and a visit to the Lennon Wall of Love. There will also be dates in London -- which will feature a tour of Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Hyde Park -- a thespian-themed "Romeo and Juliet" date, and a trip to the Croatian city of Dubrovnik.
Concert dates starring country music stars Gloriana and Luke Bryan, and themed dates featuring The Muppets and Dollywood (yes, Dolly Parton will serenade the couple!) are also on tap. But where will that final rose ceremony be taped? Carbone has long said the final rose ceremony will play out in Madrid.
As in previous seasons of the show, Emily will travel with her final four guys to their hometowns, which include pit stops in Utah, Texas, Chicago, and Arizona. But a major development occurred during this season's hometowns, and there's reportedly trouble in paradise. According to Wetpaint, one front-runner found himself in hot water after Emily learned that he used to date one of her "Bachelorette" producers. In this bizarre twist, Emily is said to be furious that one of her final guys has a romantic past with producer Cassie Lambert.
Emily's Final Rose
Producer Mike Fleiss has been live tweeting the show's final days of taping, and he dropped a few hints as to Emily's rose ceremonies. But a recent comment shows that things are getting serious between Em and one of her suitors. Fleiss tweeted, "Neil Lane had better bring his A-game!!!" which is a reference to the famed diamond jeweler who regularly appears on the show. Does that mean we'll see a proposal this season? Stay tuned!
"The Bachelorette" Season 8 premieres on May 14 on ABC.
