The Facts

– Maynard has over 405,000 twitter followers and over 438,000 Instagram followers. That’s more that you. By a lot.

– Emily hit the primetime as Brad Womak’s pick on the 2011 Bachelor. Didn’t work out.

– Next year, she was the Bachelorette and chose Jef. No, I didn’t misspell Jef, it’s a single f. Didn’t work out.

– About 6 months ago she married Tyler Johnson at his family’s SC farm. They met at church, not on reality television. He’s got excellent gel hair and a solid beard.  I can’t pull that look off, but it’s cool. Be honest, he’s good looking. 


“We’re super excited” Maynard told Us Weekly.

C5’s Take

Happy for Emily. She honestly seems like a cool/normal person. I like her. She’s good for Charlotte and I think her jewelry line is doing well. Congrats!
