As I made obvious in my ‘Bachelor’ blog for last season, the Fantasy Suite segment is my least favorite as basically the chooser is meant to sleep with three hopefuls, only to reject one of them next morning and another one shortly thereafter. It’s not exactly a great champion of family values, this show.
But Emily Maynard is. On her ‘Bachelor’ season she appeared to be a sweet girl next door. On her ‘Bachelorette’ season she has already laid it down plain and clear that her daughter, Ricki, is her ain priority. She takes being a mom very seriously.
So, what would happen when Emily got to the Fantasy Suite stage of her ‘Bachelorette’ season? For those who normally inhabit another planet and don’t know this, the Fantasy Suites are overnight dates. We never get to see the X-rated stuff but we are usually left in no doubt that it happened.
Talking to Jimmy Kimmel, Emily played coy when reminded she stayed overnight with Brad Womack on ‘The Bachelor.’
So what would happen when Emily is doing the choosing on ‘The Bachelorette’?
MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD
We already know that Emily’s final three guys are Sean Lowe, Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk Jr. The Fantasy Suite dates take place on the tropical island of Curacao, which up until now I thought was only a really yummy and colourful addition to cocktails.
You see – ‘The Bachelorette’ is educational! So what lesson would Emily teach us? Did she sex it up on her sleepovers?
Actually, no. Come on, you didn’t expect her to, did you? That really wouldn’t fit with Emily Maynard’s good mom image. So the producers decided to side-step this particular issue and skip the overnight dates altogether this season. Probably for the best, right?
Reality Steve confirms that Emily “had dates with all three of them in Curacao, but didn’t stay overnight with any of them.”
As you were, ‘Bachelorette’ fans. You can breathe easy once more!
