FIRST LOOK: Emily Maynard as 'The Bachelorette'

By
ABC
Emily Maynard's big Bachelorette debut is fast approaching and we have the official promo pic of the single mom on her quest to find Mr. Right.
Showing off her sweetest, come-hither smile, the beautiful blonde strikes a romantic pose as she cradles a bouquet of red roses in the just-released photo.
Maynard, 25, found love with season fifteen Bachelor Brad Womack, 38, however their romance wasn't meant to be and the two called it quits last summer.
Mark your calendars! Season eight of The Bachelorette premieres May 14, 2012.
