VIDEO: Emily freaks out when she learns Arie dated a show producer The first show source confirms that prior to beginning her search for love — which brought her to Curacao on Monday's show — Maynard grilled producers on the financial backgrounds of her suitors, including water bottle company CEO Holm, to see if they owned their houses.
host Chris Harrison is famous for keeping in touch with previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes, but this season's leading lady, Emily Maynard, isn't eager to be put on his speed dial.
Viewers felt like they were a part of something bigger, and we were able to surprise people more. If Arie had his final date with Emily Jef, would it have made a difference?
Harrison: I had heard things went well with Jef and he had met Ricki, so my immediate thought was that he's the one.
“From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys because she really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too,” past winner Vienna Girardi exclusively told Star.
finale, viewers watched Emily say goodbye to Arie, with whom she had an intensely strong connection from the beginning, and hand out her final rose to Jef. Arie was hard to say goodbye to because he was such a No. [But] when Jef started moving in heavily from London on, from that point he was growing leaps and bounds.
