7 Most Shocking Bachelor/Bachelorette Breakups
5. Emily Maynard and Jef Holm (The Bachelorette season 8)
Who didn’t swoon when they heard Emily call Jef her best friend once they went public with their relationship? Throughout the season it was easy to see how Jef captured Emily’s heart by genuinely caring about her daughter Ricki and made sure she felt comfortable through the process. I’m sure no one was surprised when Emily accepted Jef’s proposal at the end of the season. However, rumors of fighting and potential infidelity seemed to be the cause of the couple’s demise, much to our surprise. Although Emily is happily married now, we’re still sad “Jemily” didn’t stand the test of time.
4. Aaron Buerge & Helene Eksterowicz (The Bachelor season 2)
I don’t think anyone was more shocked by this breakup than Helene. Not too long after Aaron’s proposals, Aaron called off the engagement due to lack of emotional investment. Helene and fans of the show were shocked to hear that Aaron had called off their whirlwind romance while the two were in a Starbucks. Oh yes, the man so confident in his relationship that he proposed to her twice eventually broke up with her while in a coffee shop.
