LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who wins the Bachelorette 2012 will be revealed Sunday. But while the Bachelorette 2012 winner for Emily Maynard was leaked in online spoilers months ago, the big surprise remains the future for Emily and Jef of People Water, as well as their producers. While there isn’t much mystery anymore about who Emily picks as her winner, and whether Emily Maynard and Jef Holm are still together, there is some dispute on newsstands this week about another issue. Are Jef and Emily heading, not just down the aisle to get married, but also down the TV programming block to star in their own spinoff series from the Bachelor / Bachelorette producers?
In recent months, Emily Maynard has been the subject of multiple news reports claiming that the reality star loves the attention that the franchise has brought her. While in previous seasons, winners and stars have moved on to Dancing with the Stars and the Bachelor Pad, do producers have a new plan for Emily and Jef following Sunday’s finale?
One news report this week claims so. The assertion is that producers have in development yet a fourth incarnation of the franchise, focusing on the marriage preparations between the two. The report claims that the two could appear in a series, rather than a special, along the lines of Bethenny Frankel and Kim Zolciak’s hit spinoff wedding seasons.
And while the spinoff is not yet confirmed by producers, spoilers months ago claimed that Emily Maynard does find love in the finale. When the finale airs, viewers will find out the Emily enjoyed filming this season and did find happiness with her man. Moreover, they will also learn that Emily’s winner is still engaged to Maynard.
For months, all those dynamics – the win, the engagement, the wedding plans – were the subject of online spoilers. But yet, for weeks, we still didn’t know who wins the season. Finally, recently RealitySteve revealed that Emily and Jef get engaged in the finale, returned to the states as an engaged couple, and are still engaged.
But how that engagement will turn out in the finale has been a issue of dispute throughout news publication. One purportedly false report claims that Arie in the finale tells Emily he is not interested in winning the season. Another purportedly false report claims that Emily picks Arie but that she turns him down and picks Jef as a backup.
Reality Steve claims all that is simply untrue. He claims that simply Emily’s heart was with Jef, they get engaged, they return to the states engaged, and they are still engaged.
Reports have claimed that Emily and Jef are set to marry later this year. But will their wedding preparations and ceremony be coming to ABC? Many news reports anticipate a television program for the couple. But will Emily get an actual spinoff out of it?
RealitySteve speculates that it’s not happening. “Nothing from Emily on record, a bunch of speculation and no factual basis for any of the story, it’s pretty much just something to run the week of the finale airing. That’s all.” He adds “They needed a story to run this week for Emily and since they’ve pretty much used up every other angle, they just make up some[thing else, a] … “Newlyweds” show, a la Nick and Jessica. Not gonna happen.” The finale airs Sunday on ABC at 8 pm EST.
