Is Emily Maynard going from fiancee of "The Bachelor" to the new "Bachelorette"? According to several published reports, including People, EW, and Life & Style, Emily is going to be the new "Bachelorette."

"It's basically a done deal," a source told Life & Style in December, when the rumors first started. "She hasn't signed the contract yet, but she's fully on board." Sources told Life & Style at the time that Emily was all but confirmed.

Ashley Hebert, the most recent "Bachelorette," even tweeted a congratulations to her rumored successor.

Emily got the final rose from Brad Womack in Season 15, but the two announced their split in June. Shortly after her break-up from Brad, Emily took to Twitter in July and said she did not want to be the next "Bachelorette."
