Emily Maynard is a reality TV personality best known for her appearances on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” She most recently announced her fourth engagement with automotive management consultant Tyler Johnson. She said, “[This engagement] is my last. I really mean it. I’m actually making it to the marriage part this time.”
Emily Maynard appeared on the 15th season of “The Bachelor” and was once engaged to Brad Womack. She then went on to star in “The Bachelorette” and was engaged to Jef Holm. It was the first season that filmed the majority away from Los Angeles.
As for dealing with men who cried on the show, she said, “You would think, as a mom, I should be good at that. But I just wasn’t. I learned that about myself, too.”
Emily Maynard has a daughter, Ricki Hendrick, from a previous relationship, but the father died before Ricki was born. Emily was engaged and after his death Emily discovered she was pregnant with their child.
As for her life outside of Bachelor fame, Emily said, “20 percent of my life is spent sitting in carpool,” shuttling her daughter to classes, soccer and swim lessons. She also launched her own blog. “I try to do at least an hour a day, to do a blog a day. I can talk about makeup and girly stuff all day long. I’ve really loved it.”
As for her income, she said, “My dad has worked really hard and I’ll never want for anything. But being independent on my own is really important for me, and that’s why I’m starting a jewelry line.”
Emily Maynard is not a fan of the tabloids. “I wish that people could see how hurtful they can be sometimes, and especially for my family…I couldn’t imagine being an actual celebrity. I couldn’t imagine the anxiety they feel…I was one of those people who used to believe everything I read, and that’s been a really good lesson for me.”
A bit of trivia: her favorite music is country; her favorite movie is “True Grit” with John Wayne; and her favorite TV show is “Criminal Minds.”
Emily Maynard resides in Charlotte, North Carolina and is currently engaged.
