Who Should Win 'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard's Heart: Jef Holm V. Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Emily is down to her final two guys and they’re both pretty amazing! But who do YOU think deserves to be with her forever? Read on for more details.

It’s all boiled down to this: Emily, Jef, Arie, one rose and the island of Curacao.

In two weeks on July 22 one guy (hopefully not both of them!) will get down on one knee and ask for Emily Maynard’s hand in marriage. A source told us exclusively Emily ends up with skater boy Jef, but do you think he’s the right guy for her? HollywoodLife.com weighs in.

Who will make a better dad?
This is presumably the ultimate deciding factor for Emily — since she’s not only looking for a husband, but for a father for Ricki.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. has experience in this arena. His previous girlfriend had a child, so he’s not new to the whole dad thing.

However, Jef doesn’t have much experience with kids, but he did impress Em earlier this season when she made the guys play with kids on the playground.

Who is the most loyal?

Both have told Em that they want to be with Emily forever — but who really means it?

Arie seems genuine about his feelings now, but it’s still strange that he never fessed up about his relationship with ABC producer Cassie Lambert! Sorry A, but that one definitely hurts you in this race.

Jef expresses his feelings in a 110 percent genuine way — he’s always honest and not scared to tell Em about how he feels. You can tell he’s totally in love with her and will do anything for her. One concern is his parents though! Even though he told Emily that they’ll love her — she still hasn’t met them yet.

Who will be a better husband?

Arie and Emily have an intense connection, but it was definitely a red flag when she revealed that she felt like she didn’t even know him.

But with Jef, Emily says she feels like he “gets her” in a way nobody else does. Emily also says he gives her a self-confidence she hasn’t felt in a long time. So sweet!

Who will be able to support Emily AND Ricki?

Emily clearly wants a comfortable lifestyle for her and Ricki. Who would best be able to provide that for her?

Arie is a famous race car driver and the son of one. He will definitely provide an exciting life, but will it be stable? And what will happen when his race car days are over? Plus, what about all of his traveling?

Jef is the co-founder of People Water — and even though that doesn’t exactly require a lot of travel, it is time consuming to run your own business. Is he really ready to give Emily AND Ricki the attention they deserve?

Both of these guys have amazing qualities, but Emily will only end up with one — we hope!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Who do YOU think is the better fit for Em: Arie or Jef?
