That’s the shocking opinion put forward in the latest ‘Star’ magazine.
Insiders on the hit ABC reality TV show have apparently been noticing for a while how close Emily and Chris have become. Now this week’s edition of the magazine is claiming that the two have fallen madly in love with each other. They say that Chris and Emily have been a couple a lot longer than any of us think.
The alleged couple have themselves done plenty to hint at a romance between them, so it may just be one huge ruse to distract us from who Emily chooses on ‘The Bachelorette’ finale.
Emily posted a photo on Twitter of her with newly-single Chris Harrison at the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ finale.
‘I had so much fun with @chrisbharrison tonight @DancingABC,’ 26-year old Emily Tweeted.
Chris (40) was quick to retweet the photo, saying,
‘Great night with my friend.’
This may be the first suggestion that there is a romance brewing between Emily Maynard and Chris Harrison but any fan of ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ will be aware of the spark of chemistry between the two. Chris has not made any secret of the fact that he thinks Emily is beautiful.
Former contestant Vienna Girardi has joined in to add fuel to the fire:
‘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,’ she said.
In fact, she is guaranteeing that Emily and Chris will become a couple.
‘If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle,’ Vienna predicts.
Chris Harrison recently announced that he was separating from Gwen Jones, his wife of 18 years, with whom he has two children.
Emily broke up with her previous ‘Bachelor’ fiancé Brad Womack in July 2011.
So, has Emily found love on the latest season of ‘The Bachelorette’? And is it with host Chris Harrison, rather than any of the men we thought were her potential suitors?
