What an emotional ride for Emily Maynard as she was down to the final three on Monday’s Bachelorette.

The mom of one jetted  off to the tropical Curacao where she could spend some one-on-one time with each of the three men, Arie Luyendyk Jr., Jef Holm and Sean Lowe.

Emily didn’t really know at the beginning of her final date with him how he felt about Sean… and he finally responded by declaring his love for her during their dinner.  He also wrote a letter to Emily’s daughter, Ricki, in which he stated that he wouldn’t try to replace her real father.  But it seemed too late.

Jef, a cute skateboarder type, has been open about his feelings for Emily.  You could tell that the two are smitten with one another.  When Emily handed the invitation to Jef to the Fantasy Suite, Jef turned her down out of respect for their families.  Emily was impressed but hoped that she could’ve been the one to turn him down!

Finally, Emily spends the day with Arie, the race-car driver (ironic).  The sparks she feels with Arie continued as usual… they kissed and kissed some more.  Emily even admitted that she wondered if her relationship with Arie could have more than just chemistry.

Remember that these two were making out on their first date – once the sparks are gone, will they last?
Emily didn’t even extend an invitation to the Fantasy Suite because she said she didn’t trust herself being alone with him. Whoa!

Final ceremony time, Emily had to choose… Sean was sent home.  His final words to Emily and to the camera were so genuine and heartbreaking! Such a great guy – will he be the next Bachelor?!? He sure should be!

Now it’s between Jeff and Arie… who will Emily choose?

My guess is Emily should choose Jeff… he’s adorable, sweet, down-to-earth and ready to be a father, even though he seems young.  Arie would be traveling a lot and he doesn’t seem ready to give up his single lifestyle.  I’m thinking that their chemistry would likely fizzle.

What do you think?

    She should have sent home Arie, not Sean. But with the two left, she should choose Jef.
