It may have been entertaining to watch Bentley Williams play games with Ashley Hebert's heart or Ali Fedotowsky dump Chris Lambton before the final rose ceremony (what? You wouldn't be watching The Bachelorette if you didn't enjoy schadenfreude too!) — but nothing will compare to Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette. How do we know this? We're psychic. Or we just simply like Emily just as much as Bentley did.
So, we might be biased. But here are the 10 reasons why we don't want to miss Maynard's Bachelorette season, premiering Monday:
1. Maynard has a reality-ready heart-wrenching storyline. At the age of 19, Maynard got engaged to a race car driver, Ricky Hendrick. Tragically, Hendrick died in a tragic plane crash, leaving Maynard all on her own. But that's not the most shocking part. A week after Hendrick's death, Maynard found out she was pregnant with their daughter. Only a cruel TV watcher wouldn't want to wish Emily a happy ending.
2. Maynard has produced plenty of relationship drama before. After the single mother decided to take her chances at finding love via The Bachelor, the reality star met and fell in love with Brad Womack... only to break their engagement after the season's end. Will we accept some more drama? YES!
3. Each and every one of us Bachelor devotees love a star who is also a parent. Just look at Jason Mesnick, who watched fans obsess over finding his son a new mother. Bachelorette baby on board? We're in!
