The moment her heart was (sort of) broken after Brad Womack’s (second) season of The Bachelor, millions of fans immediately called for Emily Maynard to be named the next Bachelorette.
Cut to Monday night, the season premiere of The Bachelorette on OMNI. Fans got what they asked for, as the bright eyed, beautiful blonde mother of one picked up right where she left off as America’s Sweetheart. The thing is, bright eyed and beautiful (or a legitimate quest for love, for that matter) only goes so far in keeping audiences captivated for an entire season of reality TV. If history has taught us anything, we know we’re going to need a talent pool chock full of jocks, crazies and powder kegs to make these months worthwhile.
Sure, a bachelor skateboarded in to grab Emily’s attention. Yeah, another brought an ostrich egg along. But I couldn’t help but think there’s going to have to be something exciting soon if the producers of The Bachelorette want to win in the ratings. Our BT Bachelor Panel seemed to agree when we met Tuesday morning at 8:10am. You can check out our time together by clicking the video link below.
Here’s hoping it’s only a matter of time until we see a good old fashioned brew-ha-ha surrounding the Bachelorette!
Until next week…
