Emily Maynard Bachelorette

Emily Maynard has left her sweet Southern charm, well, in the south. Insiders say that the blonde vixen is running the new season of The Bachelorette and making everyone play by her rules!

After declaring that she had ZERO desire to be new Bachelorette, Emily Maynard seems quite happy in her new leading role. And she should be! Not only does the 26-year-old single mom have 25 handsome guys fighting for her love and affection, the show’s producers have bent over backwards to accomodate her needs.

“The producers have completely changed the format this season in order to meet Emily’s demands,” a source tells In Touch. Not only is Emily being paid a whopping $250,000 — more than any other contestant in the show’s history — she’s getting extra days off and making sure that all her suitors are extremely well-off!

Apparently, Emily was so horrified by Ashley’s season that she’s forbid the producers from putting villainous men into the mix. “She wanted only the best-looking, most mannered guys,” the source adds.

Unlike wishy-washy Bachelorettes of the past, Emily is eliminating the men who she doesn’t spark with at an alarming rate. “She’s whittling it down to a handful of candidates who she will spend a lot more time with,” reveals an insider. “If she doesn’t like a guy, he’s gone.”
