I would first like to say that I don't even know why these two shows are still even on the air. The only successful relationship that has come from them in all these years has been Trista and Ryan. I guess it is just a guilty pleasure for some people. I would watch the shows if more successful relationships actually came from them.
Anyway, it was announced today that the next "Bachelorette" will be Emily Maynard (didn't see that coming - sarcasm). I do give ABC props though because she is probably the most attractive one they have had in awhile. This season will take place in her hometown of Charlotte, rather than Los Angeles, and they are set to start filming in March.
