bachelorette finale emily maynard 'The Bachelorette': Did Arie Luyendyk actually leave Emily Maynard?It wouldn’t be the end to a “Bachelorette” season without some controversy and rumors. In Touch Weekly is reporting that Emily Maynard‘s first choice was actually Arie Luyendyk, but Jef Holm won because Arie left the show. Supposedly Arie learned that Emily had slept with Jef on the fantasy suite date and he quit the show.

didn’t know that she had been sleeping with other people,” says an In Touch source. The source adds that Arie himself had slept with Emily several times, but didn’t know she was sleeping with other people and started to wonder how well he knew her.

The source goes on to say that producers contacted Arie and offered him money, a free vacation and a shot at being the next Bachelor in exchange for shooting the scene where Emily dumped him.

Reality Steve, the go-to site for “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” spoilers, is mum on the article so far. In Touch’s account of the ending of the season seems pretty far-fetched. Say what you will about Emily, but we honestly don’t think we see her sleeping with guys all season long.

What do you think “Bachelorette” fans?
