If Brad gives Chantal the final rose, where would that leave Emily? Ali & Roberto think she’d make the perfect ‘Bachelorette!’

Who do you think will be the next Bachelorette? Given her air time, former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, 26, and her fiance Roberto Martinez, 27, think ABC will select 24-year-old Emily Maynard as the star for the next season! They chatted about their prediction while picking out a Brahmin purse at the star-studded HBO luxury lounge  featuring L’Oreal Paris beauty suite on Saturday, Jan. 15.

If the rumors turn out to be true that Chantal O’Brien, 28, is the recipient of 38-year-old Brad Womack‘s final rose and that Emily is the runner up, this development would make perfect sense.

I agree Emily has an incredible story that Bachelor (and NASCAR) fans would love to follow. In 2004, she found out that she was pregnant — just five days after her fiance, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, was killed in a plane crash. Emy now has a beautiful 5-year-old daughter, Josephine Hendrick, named after Ricky.

Considering Emily’s emotional story, I think she’s the perfect woman to star in the next season of The Bachelorette. Who wouldn’t want to see her find love after all she’s been through?

Do YOU think Emily would make a good Bachelorette? Vote below!
