For followers of this blog, Shawntel’s departure will not have come as a surprise and you probably have a good idea of Brad’s eventual pick. But that means the battle is now on between Emily Maynard and Chantal O’Brien.
Spoiler alert: Many of us hope we are wrong, but we still think Brad picks Chantal over our favorite, Emily.
However, as yet, both ladies are still in the game. So, let’s have a look at the good, the bad – and there’s nothing ugly about either girl!
The good: She’s a smart cookie with a stable job working for her Dad’s O’Brien Auto Group). Her family is rich and she has no problem relocating to Texas to be with Brad
The bad: She’s a demanding, arrogant and downright crazy. She will definitely take Brad on what he likes to call “an emotional roller-coaster” and he looks like the idea terrifies him.
The good: She’s an adorable sweetheart with some good common sense. Family is important to Em’. That said, did anyone else think it odd we only saw Emily’s daughter in the hometown date, not her parents or anyone else?
The bad: The death of her fiance, Ricky Hendrick, in 2004, still clearly weighs heavy on her mind. A career is proving difficult for Emily as she is single parent to her daughter and that will also mean Brad would have an instant family and have to fit straight into the role of stepfather. Relocating to Texas would obviously take the child away from her schoolfriends.
Put like that, Chantal has a good chance. Sigh! Chantal vs. Emily? Head or heart? Who do you want Brad to choose?
