New Bachelorette Season Features Less Hot Tubs, More Class

By: WebProNews Staff - May 14, 2012

New Bachelorette, new rules.

Since this season of the popular dating program will feature single mother Emily Maynard’s quest for love and affection, host Chris Harrison claims that some slight changes have been made to the show’s formula. However, just because there won’t be any wild and wacky sexual encounters or late night hot tub trysts this time around doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t tune in.

Although Maynard, who was engaged to Nascar driver Ricky Hendrick before his death in 2004, can be seen wearing a bikini in what Harrison states are “exotic locales”, she wanted to be portrayed as a mother first and foremost. That means no hanky panky, no frat humor, and no clandestine meetings with potential suitors after the lights go out. Sorry, primetime perverts. You’ll have to get your fix elsewhere.

“Emily’s season is drastically different,” Harrison explained. “It changed the tone from Night 1. Throughout the show, it was always that underlying issue of, she’s a mom and is this guy ready for that? It’s not about just hopefully finding love and a husband, it’s about finding a father figure to [her daughter] Ricki.”

This isn’t the first time Maynard has attempted to find true love on television. She was the winner in the “Bachelor” season featuring Brad Womack. As is the story with most of these scenarios, Maynard and Womack eventually broke off their relationship, prompting the single mom to return to the small screen for another shot at love, romance, and, well, celebrity. After all, one doesn’t appear on TV if they don’t want the world to know who they are.

The season hasn’t wrapped production yet, so Harrison couldn’t say whether or not Maynard has found her true love. Not that he would, anyway. In order to find out if she’s bound for love or depression, you’ll have to tune into the program, which debuts tonight (May 14th) on ABC.

    First you have to find contestants with class. If the likes of Vienna and half the guys on there are any indication of what’s out there. .. Good Luck!

    This is really a dumb ass show, some folks will do anything for their 15 min;s of fame, now the have some single ass lady with a kid, who must be hard up, to sell herself off as a some kind of high ass hooker, jumping in bed with 12-15 guys or more…aw love is so grand for the right price~~

    that’s fewer hot tubs.

    repeat after me: fewer in number, less in amount.

    fewer dollars, less money.

    fewer grains of sand, less sand.

    fewer hot tubs.

    Still no Blacks,Asians,Hispanics or Indians to be seen so the show hasn’t changed much

    This show has shown some really immoral actions by the participants. It is high time to clean it up and project more real moral character.

    Worst bachelorette: Ashley (last season’s)
    No class at all. She looked cheap and had no charisma. The show is terrible, but watching it , it’s a guilty pleasure. Go figure, right? This new Bachelorette looks great and classier than Ashley. I watch the show maybe a few minutes each time and somnetimes the whole show other times. It’s somehow, as I said before, a “guilty pleasure”. Maybe because there’s nothing better to watch on TV???

    Emily is about as much fun as watching paint dry at her best and has the personality of a used napkin. Having to spend 13 or so episodes listening to her talk incessantly about her brat and cry about some dead guy who made left turns while boring white dudes stand around sober and pretend she has anything besides blonde hair and a TON of baggage to offer anybody will be even less entertaining than Ashley’s fistful of neuroses.
    I couldn’t think of a worse choice to build a season on. If you HAD to pull somebody else off her train wreck of a season Michelle would have at least made interesting TV.
    I foresee this getting removed from the DVR and America fleeing from Emily en masse.

    I think the Bachelorette and the Bachelor should be cancelled. Out of all the years this show has been on – how many have been lucky to find true love? I’d like o see if replaced with a good drama series – and yes No doctors or police shows.

    I didn’t think Emily would work either, but I was pleasantly surprised. She has made it clear that she is a mother first, and if they can’t respect that they’re out of there. Give her a chance before judging her.

    What single person wouldnt apply to get to go to all these beautiful locations and have this big fantasy -with good looking waited on and stay in lavish homes etc..I hate the part around the end where they sleep with 2 or 3 just to see if its gonna work..TRASH go home live in the real world and see how it goes before falling “head over heels” with all your heart…foolish dreamers foolish producers Put them in real life situations…
