First came controversial couple, Ben Flajnik and model, Courtney Robertson. It wasn't much surprise to fans since there was a lot of speculation while their season of Bachelor was filming. Though, we still had hope and Robertson admits, they did too, that their love was real but just didn't work. And, to Flanjik's surprise, photos of Robertson canoodling with Emily Maynard's season cast-off, Arie Luyendyk appeared on the net just days later.
Regardless, their courtship did suprisingly last longer than single mom, Emily Maynard's and entrepreneur, Jef Holm. There's no doubt that America was rooting for these two but alas rumors of the Bachelor sweetheart's supposed infedality no doubt put a spoil to their seemingly authentic love.
Rumors and speculations about their relationship started as soon as the last episode of the Bachelor aired on TV in March. And now, according to several sources, it's really over between Womack and Maynard.
A source told Life & Style "Emily told Brad that she can't picture them getting married. Brad's not acting like a fiancé, and she knows that he's not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished."
Another source said that "Emily was very close to moving with her daughter, Ricki, to Austin, Texas, just weeks ago, but that's not true anymore."
And the winner is... Emily Maynard!
Brad Womack turned down Chantal O'Bryan and chose to pop the question to the single mom, Emily.
He explained: "I've gone through so much to get to where I am today. I've made so many mistakes and had so many ups and downs. I always believed that when the time was right, I'd find the woman that I've been looking for for my entire life. I knew it would take opening up ways in I wasn't used to….All it took was coming here and finding you. You're so much more to me than a leap of faith. You're the one. You're my once in a lifetime. I'm asking you to give me your forever. Please let me be your best friend, let me protect you and your beautiful daughter and please give me the opportunity to love you for the rest of your life."
In 2007, Womack became the first bachelor ever to reject both of the finalists.
