The Bachelorette 8 is the eighth season of ABC reality television series The Bachelorette.
The show premiered on May 14, 2012, featuring Emily Maynard and dating 25 men. Maynard was previously chosen by Brad Womack in the 15th season of The Bachelor, but Emily “poked the Bear” and the two split after the show.
Maynard’s season was filmed in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, where she and her daughter Little Ricki.
Emily had to choose between Teen Dream Jef and Heart-throb Arie.
Emily dumps Arie pre-rose ceremony and famously chooses Jef Holm. At the final rose ceremony, Emily officially declares her love for him and as does he. Jef proposes to Emily and she says yes. The engaged couple are then joined by Ricki and the three walk off of the show hand-in-hand to a Bryan Adams power-ballad.
