The Bachelor Brad Picks Emily Who Won't Let Him Drink Beer & Won't to Austin

I made it to the part on The Bachelor where Brad dumped Chantal, with Chantal being quite upset as the tears flowed as she was driven away in a limo. And then my DVR caught up to the present moment.

So, I've not watched the special moment where Brad tells "Em" she is the one.

Nor have I watched the After The Final Rose show where Brad and Emily appear in public for the first time since Brad proposed 3 months ago.

Apparently on the After The Final Rose show Emily displayed a brand new personality, with all sorts of issues regarding her relationship with Brad.

Also, during the 3 months since Brad proposed in South Africa the wannabe lovebirds have broken up once. Near as I can tell, Emily has issues with Brad drinking beer during a football game and an aversion to moving to Austin.

I can understand the moving to Austin aversion.

Emily also had some trouble with Brad's assertion that he'd fallen for her from the start, after she watched the show and saw him being ardently lustful with several of the wife wannabes, including supposedly getting to know two of the others in the Biblical Sense in the notorious Fantasy Suites.

Brad may have had a problem with some of the info that has surfaced about Emily Maynard since he proposed. Then again, Brad does not strike me as the sort of guy who does a lot of reading. So, unless someone told him, Brad may be oblivious to the stories about Emily's tragic past, as told by Emily, being a bit fictional.

Emily's version has it that the father of her daughter, Ricky Hendrick, had been her childhood sweetheart, who left her one day to never return, killed in a plane crash, with Emily learning a week later she was pregnant.


Ricky Hendrick's ex-fiance, Cori Kurek, disputes Emily's story.

Cori's does not believe Emily and Ricky were ever engaged.

Cori claims that, “After Ricky died and she found out she was pregnant, Emily wanted to have lunch with me, because she didn’t know him that well.”

Cori was engaged to Ricky from 2002 to 2003. When the two broke off their engagement, Cori gave back Ricky’s ring. “I’m amazed at the details Emily excludes about her background,” says Cori of the 24-year-old’s portrayal on the show.

A source close to the Hendricks claims that Ricky's family gave Emily the engagement ring that Ricky had given Cori, in order to supposedly spare them the embarrassment of an out of wedlock baby, making it appear that wedding plans had been made at the time of Ricky's death. Emily had the ring on her finger in the delivery room, characterized, by an up close source, as "a staged, fake engagement."

Emily's story is that she and Ricky were childhood sweethearts. But Cori says, “Ricky and I were together for a very long time and as far as I know, there was never any Emily in his life.”

I thought it odd that when Brad went on the all important hometown date, to meet Emily's family, he met no family other than Emily's daughter, Ricky.

Brad should have fallen for Chantal from the start. He'd be much better off.
