If viewers think The Bachelorette's Emily is always innocent, calm and composed, just wait until you see her mad.
"What's great about Emily ... is that she is sweet right up until the time she's not," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "She's this perfect Southern belle and then someone crosses her [in an upcoming episode] and really crosses Ricki and that's when Mama Bear comes out and says, 'Get the f--- out.'"
The Bachelorette is back! It feels like it was just yesterday that we watched Ashley and J.P. find love and now it's time to join Emily as she searches for her happy ending. Will her season end in another proposal for her? Time to find out.
We re-meet Emily and hear her story about getting engaged to NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, who died a few months later in a plane crash. Shortly after his death, Emily found out she was pregnant and is now raising her 6-year-old daughter Ricki. Although Emily's engagement to previous Bachelor Brad Womack ended, she still believes in the process and hopes to find love again.
The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard
Get ready for a very different season of The Bachelorette.
When viewers last saw Emily Maynard, the North Carolina native who lost her first love in a plane crash was tearfully telling Chris Harrison that she and Bachelor Brad Womack had ended their engagement. Now a year later, the 26-year-old has returned for another shot at finding love on The Bachelorette.

The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, Ashley Hebert and Ali Fedotowsky
Welcome to Bachelorette Boot Camp! On a recent afternoon in Los Angeles, newly minted professional dater Emily Maynard — the previous recipient of Brad Womack's final rose will return as the star of the matchmaking show this spring — got a crash course from show alums Ali Fedotowsky (Season 6) and Ashley Hebert (Season 7) on what's ahead. TV Guide Magazine sat in on the single mom's tutorial.
It's fantasy date week on The Bachelor, which means lots of "love," lots of hot tubs and lots of alone-time for Ben and his ladies.
First, Ben flies to Switzerland, where he reflects on his time with the remaining women: Nicki, the dark horse, laid-back Lindzi and Courtney, the trash-talking model. As Ben ponders the final two weeks, he concludes that he's ready to take the next step in life.
Nicki has the first fantasy date with Ben in Interlaken. A helicopter picks them up and whisks them away over the Alps. After a breathtaking ride, they arrive on a mountaintop to have a picnic.
Now that Emily Maynard is The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison has a type in mind for her. "This is going to sound weird, but Brad Womack," he tells TVGuide.com. "A sweet gentleman who treats her like a lady and can be a great dad and is ready for that."
Emily Maynard will look for another shot at love on ABC's next edition of The Bachelorette, according to US Weekly.
The 25-year-old single mom first appeared on Brad Womak's season of The Bachelor. Although the two got engaged in the finale, the relationship was strained by the time "After the Final Rose" aired. The eventually announced their split in June.

No "I" in "Team" Award: On Ice Loves Coco, Coco is pumped to show her hubby her new Licious clothing line at the factory... until Ice-T points out something her whole crew had apparently missed: All the shirts are printed with the (non)-word "licous" — or, phonetically, "lick-us." Don't get too upset, Coco. Beyonce can't spell it either.
