The Bachelor kicked off with a bang this week and sure didn’t hold back when it comes to exciting news. So what’s happening in the world of your favorite alums like Emily Maynard and Courtney Robertson? Find out in our Bachelor Week In Review below along with updates on Juan Pablo Galavis’ eliminated contestants!
Back in November we got word that Emily Maynard was dating Taylor Johnson, a Charlotte based philanthropist. The buzz surrounding The Bachelorette’s rumored beau was true as the happy couple became engaged on January 4! “We’re really excited!!” the blonde beauty announced to Us Weekly. “He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!” So when is the star-studded soirée taking place? “We definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later,” Emily said. “No point in waiting!”
Was Kylie Lewis set up by The Bachelor producers to fail? She thinks so! While talking with TMZ, the redhead revealed that she was instructed to act like a “dumb bimbo.” There were a few other changes ABC apparently had in mind for the interior designer which included dying her hair from strawberry blonde to red and the color of her arrival gown. Kylie continued to say that her tweet immediately after meeting Juan Pablo was also planned, as she wanted to give him a photo she had drawn instead. While we may never know the truth, the poor girl did not have the best luck on Monday night’s premiere.
By the looks of this snapshot we’re not sure whether to say spoiler alert or not before noting the news. So just in case, quickly scroll down to the next slide if you’re hesitant. Reality Steve shared the photo below of Juan Pablo’s contestants Amy Long and Alexis Morgado celebrating in Miami with Bachelorette alums Brooks Forester and Michael Garofola. Not only is there speculation that Alexis and Michael are an item, but Amy and Brooks too! But Amy L. is still competing for Juan Pablo’s heart, so maybe the duo are just holding hands as friends? Hmm…seems like we’ll have to stay tuned for the answer!
Love or hate Courtney Robertson, you know you’re excited to read her new book I Didn’t Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villan. Well thanks to Harper Collins and Amazon, fans got a first look at the cover this week and we’re obsessed! We all know that Courtney is sassy and quirky, so the artwork could not be anymore perfect. You can pre-order the book now or pick up a copy beginning June 24. So the real question is, what do you think of the model’s new project?
Bless her heart! Lauren Higginson was full of tears and stress on Monday’s season premiere. Sadly her journey to find love with Juan Pablo was cut short as the mineral coordinator was sent packing. “I didn’t really know what to expect,” she explained about her portrayal on The Bachelor. “I knew they would use that little meltdown.” Apparently it was the producers idea for Lauren to bring up her recent engagement which she said was then edited to make her look like “an idiot.” Lauren continued by explaining, “There were tears, those were real. The words that came out of my mouth were real, but in terms of the order or the context absolutely not.”
