According to Emily, the producers on her season both had guesses at whom she would pick as the final guy after night one.Both of them were wrong, with one producer guessing Ryan and the other choosing Alessandro.She says, "All Bachelors and Bachelorettes were sternly warned not to spoil any surprises on camera. After her relationship with Brad didn't work out, Emily was asked to be the Bachelorette on Season 7.Brad got in trouble for this one..."When Brad proposed to Emily, between all of the magic and romance, he said a not-so romantic thing. She didn't take it — Ashley Hebert went on to meet husband J. that season — and recalls her response being "'Thank you, but absolutely not!There's also a good amount of personal information about Emily's life before her time in the spotlight.Many of those stories led her to steal the hearts of America. In addition to going into details about her life during The Bachelor, Emily also documents her life before the show caused America to fall in love with her.She later says that not getting engaged was a "no-brainer," and that she didn't want to walk away with a fiancé, but only with a serious partner in life.This will make you question every "Can I steal him/her? Emily shares in her book that none of the bachelors could "approach her without permission, so it's more orchestrated than it looks on TV." She did not go into detail if this was the case for the remainder of the show, but judging by the off-camera moments she was able to have with contestants later on (Jef visited her one night and gave her a turquoise ring), I'd say it was probably a night one rule.
Unfortunately, Emily didn't get to sleep until 3 a.m.
We know that validation is key on The Bachelor, but there are certain things producers don't want said to contestants before rose ceremonies.
For instance, Brad told Emily that she would be getting a hometown date the following week, before the rose ceremony even occurred.
"After I said yes," Emily writes, "Brad scooped me up in his arms and said, 'Wow, Em! '" Then, during Ben Flajnik's season, the producers approached her again about the job.
Again, she denied, but slowly started to reconsider due to what she describes as a growing loneliness.
Alessandro, the vampire detector, really made Emily's blood boil after she found herself in the woods with him with "various-sized crosses" on every tree.
