Meet the Men Who Will Compete for Emily Maynard's Heart on 'The Bachelorette'! (PHOTOS)


Let's hear it for the boys!

On Tuesday, ABC released the first official photos of the men who will be competing for Emily Maynard's heart on this season of The Bachelorette, premiering May 14.

Among the highlights: Nate, 25, a CPA from Los Angeles; Doug, 33, a real estate agent from Tacoma, WA; and 29-year-old Jackson, who just so happens to be a fitness model from Lockport, IL. Yeah, we're never feeling sorry for Emily again.

Get more scoop after the jump!

Ironically enough, this season's crop of 25 includes only one African-American man, which may fuel even more controversy amid a class action lawsuit filed by two men from Nashville, TN, who feel the show discriminates against people of color.

As a refresher: Emily, 26, was a contestant on season 15 of The Bachelor, which saw the controversial return of Brad Womack. Emily quickly became a favorite among fans, due in great part to her tragic backstory. (She became pregnant with her daughter, Ricki, now 6, shortly before her husband died in a plane crash.)

Emily, of course, eventually won the heart of Brad, who proposed to her in the finale. Unfortunately, the relationship didn't last long; they called off their engagement in June 2011, about four months after the finale aired on ABC.

Luckily, as is so often the case with scorned Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants, Emily is getting a second chance at love.

But just who will she pick? Get a preview of the 25 men competing for her heart in our gallery now, then post your picks for who is hottest in the comments!
