The premiere of ABC’s The Bachelor 2012 aired Monday night, and fans are scoping out all of Ben Flajnik’s ladies. One gal who has caught people’s attention is bachelorette Emily O’Brien. Even gossip guru Reality Steve mentioned that she might be worth keeping an eye on, if not for Ben Flajnik’s heart, for the spot as the next Bachelorette (airing on channel 15 in Scottsdale). This gal seems like a great catch, and fans want to know more about her.
Emily O’Brien is a PhD student at the University of North Carolina. She is 27-years-old and attended Duke University for her undergraduate work, where she was a psychology major. Emily says her most embarrassing moment was getting matched up with her brother on a dating website. She may be on a serious career path, but she knows how to have fun. She says she loves to dance, even if she is often made fun of by her friends.
This epidemiology student knows that it’s critical she make a lasting impression on Bachelor Ben Flajnik, so she seems to pull out all the stops. Spoilers indicate that upon first meeting Ben, Emily O’Brien sanitizes both of them then steals the first kiss. Later, she does a rap for Ben where she compares love to a disease.
Do you think Emily O’Brien will be sticking around on The Bachelor this season? Do you have a favorite already picked out for Ben Flajnik? The Bachelor premieres January 2, 2012 on ABC, channel 15 in the Scottsdale area.
