Tonight Bachelor Brad Womack will give his final rose and most probably propose to the woman of his dreams — Chantal O’Brien, 28-year-old heiress to a chain of car dealerships in Mercer Island, Wash. or Emily Maynard, a 24-year-old event planner for a children’s hospital in Charlotte, NC, and single mom to five-year-old daughter Ricky. Brad already revealed last week on the “Women Tell All” special that he is the “happiest he has ever been” and has “found love,” but who will he choose to be his wife?
Brad has openly confirmed that he has chosen a mate, so the possibility of him leaving both women broken-hearted is not likely.
While both Chantal and Emily have been frontrunners in the competition since the beginning, Emily seems to really make Brad weak in the knees.
During their first one-on-one time together, when Emily opened up about the tragic loss of her fiancé and birth of her daughter Ricky, Brad gushed over her, revealing that her looks make him nervous and almost speechless.
He also told her he was falling in love with her, a move very few Bachelors make.
Chantal has been very open with Brad from the first time she met him — and slapped him on the face for “women everywhere.”
Since the “slap heard ’round the world,” Chantal and Brad have had great chemistry and steamy one-on-one dates — from getting caught in the rain in Costa Rica to sleeping under the stars in South Africa.
Chantal — who is less reserved than Emily — openly told Brad she loved him before one of the rose ceremonies. Brad reciprocated the best he could, but did not throw out the “L” word.
So is Emily the clear winner? Or does ABC want you to think so, to make a Chantal proposal more surprising?
