'Bachelorette''s Joe: Emily to Choose Sugar Daddy

Emily Maynard has put her lavish Charlotte, NC home on full display on this season of The Bachelorette. She seemed unimpressed by Kalon's helicopter entrance on episode one, but eliminated contestant Joe Gendreau told ETonline that there is another Mr. Moneybags in the cast.
If he were to wager a bet on who the sweet Southern Belle will select as husband material, Joe said, "My money's on Jef… I think [they're compatible] and he's got some money. I'm sure that's probably going to put me in the doghouse somewhere!"
The Matthew McConaughey doppelganger added that affluent entrepreneur Jef is "a caring individual." Doug's wealth of parenting knowledge seems to be giving him an edge as well. Plus, he's a "solid, good guy. Good character," praised Joe.
Time quickly ran out for Joe's chance to win over Emily when she cut their one-on-one date short, denying him the rose. On their romantic outing, the twosome wrote affectionate love letters to one another to put into a special clock at the resort. Joe's message was a personal note to Emily, but her words were a bit more generic. "I felt she was aware of the love clock and planned her wish. I was put on the spot," he explained.
Joe rationalized the betrayal. "We kind of were at different places in our lives," he acknowledged. "I was a single, free spirited individual. I think she was looking for someone more settled, more committed."
The Bachelorette airs Mondays on ABC.
