Emily Maynard admitted on several morning shows Monday morning that several men who she first met on “The Bachelorette” 2012 made her cringe. The contestants who come to mind are the guy dressed as a grandmother (Randy), the dancing DJ (Stevie), and the one who totes around an egg (Travis). Don’t forget about Kalon who arrived by helicopter and didn’t make quite the impression he wanted to.
Emily was asked by Kelly Ripa if she thought while meeting the men during “The Bachelorette” 2012 premiere episode if she was worried about what she had to pick from. She admitted that it was a worry in the beginning, but that once she got to know them she realized there was more to them than met the eye. Of all the contestants she eliminated, Emily had second thoughts about keeping Randy — the one who dress liked a grandma. She said looking back it really took a lot of guts and all he was trying to do was stand out.
Travis sticks around for a while on “The Bachelorette” and Emily said she eventually tells him to lose the egg. Travis sort of reminds fans of Jeff from Ashley’s season last year. He wore a mask for several episodes before finally removing it.
At least Emily isn’t dealing with someone hiding their looks behind a mask. Somehow carrying an egg around seems less creepy.
What about Kalon’s entrance? Emily was afraid the man who was going to exit the helicopter was Brad. She said she didn’t know how she would have reacted if it were Brad — and luckily he’s not the kind of man who would put her in that position, she said.
