Emily wants to find ‘a real guy’ on ‘The Bachelorette.’ Keep reading to find out what she’s NOT looking for!

Emily Maynard is ready to find love on The Bachelorette, but admits that certain character traits are a complete turnoff. “It’s a deal-breaker if he talks about success, I can fit in his jeans or he has more [grooming] products than I do,” the 26-year-old reality starlet tells OK!

Though Emily’s requests seem normal enough, the blonde beauty has had a tough time finding true love. After the tragic death of her boyfriend Ricky Hendrick in 2004, Emily went looking for love on season 15 of The Bachelor with Brad Womack, but only found heartbreak.

After taking time to heal, Emily decided to get back in the game and look for love on reality TV yet again.

“You have to be a hopeless romantic to put yourself on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette,” she admits. “It scares me to death, but everything I went through on The Bachelor was worth it. I fell in love and it changed me as a person.”

The producers have reportedly bent over backwards to meet Emily’s demands, which included a $250,000 paycheck and filming part of the show in her hometown of Charlotte, N.C.

“I wanted life to be as normal as possible,” she explains. “It helps the guys know what they are getting into with me — and most importantly, I get to make my daughter, Ricki, lunch every day and leave notes in her lunch box.”

Will YOU watch Emily look for love this season on The Bachelorette?
