Emily’s island adventures include a helicopter tour of the island with one lucky bachelor. The two lucky men who win Emily’s favour – and the final two roses – will get the chance to meet her family, and possibly her daughter, Ricki.

On the heels of Tuesday’s exciting Citytv announcement naming CFL wide receiver Brad Smith as Canada’s most eligible bachelor, Citytv and OMNI Television embark on another quest for love in the highly-anticipated Season 8 of The Bachelorette.

Premiering Monday, May 14 at 9:30 p.m. ET on OMNI.1, 10:30 p.m. MT on OMNI Alberta and 11 p.m. PT/CT on Citytv, fan-favourite Emily Maynard, the charming single mother who stole Brad Womack – and Canada’s! – hearts on Season 15 of The Bachelor, is back again to find her perfect match.

With surprises in store that will shake Maynard’s world, will the southern belle finally find true love? 

The battle for Maynard’s affection – and coveted roses – begins immediately on the premiere episode in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, where she lives with her six-year-old daughter, Ricki.

Coming from all over the country, the 25 eager suitors include Nova Scotia-native and biology teacher Aaron, mushroom farmer Alejandro, marine biologist Jean-Paul and ex-professional football player Ryan. 

As the car brigade begins, the one-upsmanship and testosterone-driven drama quickly begins when the men battle it out for Emily’s attention. Among them, Brent, a single father of six, shows off his collection of family photos, while Arie, a professional race car driver, is nervous to share his career with Emily – fearing that it will remind her of her late fiancé, race car driver Ricky Hendrick.

Later, tension mounts and sparks fly after host Chris Harrison reveals the first impression rose sending two men into an accusatory tailspin. But when Maynard finally offers the first rose, will the men understand her choice?
