Monday will be a big night for Emily Maynard as she’s set to enter the spotlight once again. With her debut as the the newest Bachelorette airing on national television, she’ll need all the support she can get!
Leave it up to Holly Durst to cheer on Emily as she goes through season 8 of this life-changing experience. The sweet spirited South Carolina beauty, who was a contestant on The Bachelor season 12 and most recently won Bachelor Pad 2, had some words of encouragement for the 25-year-old.
Holly tells RumorFix exclusively, “I think Emily is adorable, and I think she’s going to do a great job. I hope she finds love. I don’t know her personally but I think she’s the cutest thing in the world.” The veteran of the ABC smash hit, who is set to marry Bachelor Pad 2 co-star Blake Julian in June, reveals to RumorFix that she believes Emily will find love on the show because that’s how she found love. “I found love on the show, and I believe in the whole system.”
Blake Julian’s fiancee continued, “No matter who you end up with, know it was your choice and no one else’s. Love that man with all that you are and you will truly find your happiness! Good Luck.”
Maynard won Brad Womack’s heart on the last season of The Bachelor, but the couple’s love affair was short lived. This is the first time that a single mom is The Bachelorette.
