This is what she said:
"You know what, it was a really good learning experience for me. If any of those guys had come up to me out [on the town], I would've said 'Absolutely not. Thank you, but no thank you.' But I gave them a chance and they gave me a chance and they really are great guys," says Emily.
I was originally thinking this might be a boring season until I saw the previews and Emily showed some of the sass we got little snippets of during Brad's season and postseason. I have a feeling it could be anything but boring...

“I don’t want my pain erased! As wretched as it is, I need my pain… It makes me who I am. It makes me Grumpy.” - Grumpy, Once Upon a Time
I think when she said "any of those guys" she was just talking about the guys with horrible gimmicks on the first night. I could be wrong of course, but that is how I understood the comment.

Wow, Emily just said that there is one guy there who is auditioning to be the next Bachelor. I have a good idea who she is referring to. I can't wait to see how he exits the show.
My impression of this girl is that she's not anywhere near an "average" 26-year old woman. She has been married/widowed, has a child, and now is starring in her own TV show. She lives in an extremely nice home, drives a very nice car, and is obviously VERY well provided for. She strikes me as being very highly groomed in fashion, etiquette, and appearances. Any woman I know who is a single mother is harried, haggard, stressed out, overwhelmed and tired. She's extremely lucky to have the support that she has and to be in the circumstances she is in. She clearly has round-the-clock care for her child, a luxury that most mothers can only dream of once in a blue moon. Most single mothers wouldn't even have time to go shopping for all of the gowns she shows up in, much less be able to afford them or have many occasions to wear them. Watching her mix up a batch of cookies in her pristine kitchen with her perfectly manicured hands, full makeup and perfect hairdo, and then exclaiming that this is what her REAL life is actually like, actually made me crack up. "Playing house" with Ryan by asking him to bring her groceries inside -- almost as a test to see if he could still take her seriously after experiencing her supposedly mundane lifestyle -- was laughable.
When she and her child interact on camera, it seems a little like she is forcing the demonstrations of affection between them. I have no doubt that they are very close and loving, but it does seem like she is really playing it up when the cameras are pointed at her which I find to be somewhat fake and annoying.
This girl is used to being provided for and is not going to settle for a regular guy bringing home an average salary so that she can live an middle-class lifestyle. IMO she'll never "settle" for anyone who can't afford to show her the lifestyle she is now enjoying. Again, just my opinion.
