    I wasn't impressed with Allessandro before even learning all this. She made the right decision and I was right about her feelings for Arie. They definitely aired plenty of him and you could see the connection right away. You never know with this show and he may turn out not to be that great down the road. They may try to make us feel he is the one. Time will tell.

    I was wondering the same thing - methinks it's Ryan.

    The Bachelorette: Emily Maynard Blogs About Her Bermuda Dates

    By Emily Maynard

    We're off to Bermuda, and I couldn't be more excited! I had no idea it was so close to North Carolina and can't believe how easy it was to get there. I don't know who was more excited on the plane – Ricki or me. Having her travel with me during my time on The Bachelorette was such a blessing for us both, and I'm so happy I got to bring her along!

    My week of dates in Bermuda started off with Doug. I guess it's the "curse" of getting the first impression rose, but I felt awful because I hadn't spent much time with him since giving it to him the first night. As soon as I walked into the guys' hotel room, I knew something was wrong because everyone was so tense. I had no idea I just interrupted Arie and Doug's fight! Thank goodness I came in when I did or things could've gotten really ugly.

    Doug and I headed into town where we got to experience the Bermudian culture, all while I ate my weight in rum cake. The perfume we made actually turned out really well! We had such a great time during the day, but at dinner I really wanted to get to know Doug beyond his being a dad. I'm looking for someone who is real with not only me but also with himself. I always felt like Doug was very genuine, but sometimes gave me the answer he thought I wanted to hear.

    Flaws and All

    During dinner I really wanted to see if there was a side to Doug that I could relate to, because I'm obviously not perfect. It wasn't until he turned it around on me and asked what my biggest faults are that I realized it's not easy to be put on the spot like that. I immediately felt bad! God knows I could go on and on about all of my flaws, but it's hard when you're also trying not to scare your date off. I had such a great time with Doug and gave him the rose at the end of the night and hope that as time goes on he'll feel more comfortable around me. And for what it's worth, I still have my fingers crossed that my love wish at the Moon Gate comes true!

    After the past two group dates, I felt like I owed it to the guys to give them a "manly" date, and what better way to experience Bermuda than from the water. The guys were really excited especially after they found out it was a competition. At first I thought the red team was going to win because they got off to a great start, but once the yellow team caught up, it was so close up until the very end.

    I truly would've been happy with either team winning, but it was hard for me to celebrate with the yellow team after looking over and seeing how sad the red team looked coming into the dock. I like to think it's because they didn't get to spend more time with me, but let's be honest – they're men and all men hate losing!

    The after party with the yellow team was great, and I was really looking forward to spending more time with each of the guys in a small group. My conversation with Ryan was interesting, to say the least. I really try to make it a point to not judge others, and I felt like Ryan wasn't giving me the same respect at all. I know what kind of woman I am, and I refuse to let anyone make me question myself, especially for something so small.

    I also don't think Ryan would've had any problems if I was kissing him instead of Arie! Speaking of kissing, as Jef and I were walking down to the beach, I was thinking, "What a perfect place for us to have our first kiss!" Clearly he wasn't thinking the same thing! Everything else with Jef and me came so easily, so I couldn't figure out why he still hadn't tried to kiss me. I hoped giving him one more group date rose would let him know that I had a huge crush on him and that he better make a move soon.

    Two-on-One Date

    Obviously I'd be lying if I said I was looking forward to the two-on-one date, but I tried my best to put myself in John and Nate's position. They finally get a date, only to find out it's the one date everyone dreads the most, so I really wanted to make it a fun day for them and not even worry who I was going to send home until the time came.

    What you didn't get to see was that after jumping off the cliff (I clearly am not the best swimmer), I had a bit of a panic attack because the water was freezing and very rough that day. I was trying my best to get to the boat, but John saw that I was having a hard time and helped me the entire way back. He couldn't have been more attentive, and I was so thankful that he was there.

    Once we got to the caves, I had alone time with each of the guys and wanted to be sure I was making the right decision. As great as Nate was, there was a moment you didn't get to see where Nate sang Meatloaf to me and asked what I "wouldn't do for love." As funny and odd as it was, I realized we had very little in common and we probably weren't the best fit for each other. I was happy to give the rose to John, especially after seeing such a sweeter side to him during the earlier part of the day.

    By now you've all probably seen the clip of me using some less than ladylike words and asking/telling one of the guys to leave, and you'll finally have all your questions answered next week in London. Be sure to tune in to see which guy got to feel the wrath of a protective mama!

    Thanks for watching!
    – Emily

    What you all didn't get to see is that he thinks of himself as a "Vampire Detector" and let me know that not only was there a vampire in the house, but he also had me join him in the woods, which explains my combat boots as I was walking him out.

    I was wondering if Madison from Brad's second season was around with her vampire teeth...lol...I still love Madison and would love to see her get a chance as Bachelorette...still say it would be interesting for her to greet the guys in her black cat suit with her whip..but since this guy is really into the Buffy the vampire slayer...I would love to see how him and Madison would interact

    Hmm. I wonder sometimes. How can you have a crush on Jeff, in this case and developing a relationship, kissing with Arie? Maybe because where they are? Normally when we, women fall in love, you do not see anybody else don't you think?

    Some misconceptions here, IMO. A crush is just infatuation, physical/emotional chemistry, not love. You can have multiple crushes on different people and therefore be interested in kissing all of them. Emily has stated at this time of filming that she has developed crushes on a few people. Second, women are just as capable as men of dating more than one guy at a time and developing feelings for eachof those guys 'til their feelings get stronger for one that they truly fall fully in love with. Generallly when it happens in the real world it's not as many as 25 guys at a time but that's what the setting and format of the Bachelor makes different. However, if you think about a young single girl and count the number of guys she goes on first dates with that don't go past a first date, or a few dates, ending with one ending in a long term relationship you could easily come up with 25 guys or more for an active dating single girl. The bachelor format just condenses the dating time it occurs in and easily provides the guy and keeps them in a house 'til it's their turn .

    I'm a one guy at a time type girl but, even I knowing in general how other women date don't see anything out of the ordinary about developing crushes or feelings for multiple attractive, compatible guys in a situation where you are force to date multiple guys at a time due to the shows format. It takes time to fall completely in love and while your in the early dating stages and just in like with a guy it's easy to be attracted to or like other compatible guys 'til stronger feelings will out. Then, is when your n ot interested in anyone else but, the one you know you love. IMO

    More power to ya, Emily! Hey, if I were as gorgeous as she is, young and single, and these cute guys were flirting with me, you better believe I'd have a crush on more than one. At this point, she's checking them all out. She probably knows which 2 or 3 she is most interested in and since it is so early and so new, there's no reason to think she has to focus on just one guy. Have fun! How many times in your life are you going to be able to do this? I say, go for it!
