'Bachelorette': Emily Maynard Sends Contestant Home for Calling her 'Trophy Wife'
Ryan Bowers' comment, along with his list of 12 qualities that he’s looking for in his future mate, seal his fate on ABC's reality dating show.
Ryan Bowers should have learned from Kalon McMahon that Bachelorette Emily Maynard has a low tolerance for men who say the wrong things.
Just like McMahon was sent home after calling Maynard’s child “baggage,” Bowers got the boot after labeling Maynard a “trophy wife” on Monday’s episode.
Maynard took the remaining men to Croatia on Monday’s episode to test their abilities at such marriage material skills as kilt-wearing and archery.
Maynard gave Bowers a coveted one-on-one date, which let the 30-year-old sports trainer show his true colors.
After the couple go on a mini-roadtrip, Bowers shares a bit about what he’s looking for in a woman.
"God makes a promise to give us great things in our life and you'd be a pretty good promise," he tells her during their date. "Like a trophy wife. Every man should believe his wife's a trophy."
The single mom was not happy with being called a trophy wife, but lets the date continue -- and get progressively worse.
Later, Maynard, wearing a gold gown which made her look a little but like a, um, trophy, learns that Bowers also has a list of the top 12 qualities that he’s looking for in a woman. When she discovers that one very important thing isn’t on the list, she sends Bowers packing.
"On the top of my list would be a loving family," she says. "It wasn't on yours."
At the rose ceremony, Maynard struggles to decide between saving John or Doug. After a short discussion with Chris Harrison, she decides to keep both.
Next week, she’ll take the remaining men to Prague.
