Among the three men competing to win Emily Maynard's heart, it was Sean Lowe who hadn't said his "I love you" to the single mother, but the 28-year-old insurance agent from Dallas finally professed his love to her on the latest episode of "The Bachelorette" latest season.
The pair flew to a private island and had a heart-to-heart talk while enjoying summer breeze on the beach. They then went snorkeling and making out, but Emily was unsure about his feelings. "I wonder, 'does he love me?' He hasn't said it," said the former fiancee of Brad Womack.
Sean was more open when they had a romantic dinner on the beach. He read a letter he wrote for Emily's daughter Ricki, "I hope to honor you by loving your mom with every ounce of my being." The Children's Hospital Event Planner was touched by it. "Thank you, I love it," she gushed.
Sean continued pouring his heart out. "I can't picture my life without you," so he told his date. "I have fallen in love with you - and I know without a shadow of a doubt." His love proclamation was followed by another make-out session before they moved it to her room. He didn't spend the night with her though.
Next, Emily and Jef Holm hopped on a sailboat to a private cove and made out. When the night came, they had a dinner under a tree and toasted for "a lot of future dates." Despite saying that he's madly in love with her, the 27-year-old entrepreneur from Salt Lake City refused her overnight invitation.
"I think it's be awesome to forgo our individual rooms and spend some time in the fantasy suite together, but I completely understand your daughter's going to be watching this and my family's going to be watching this and your family's going to be watching this. I think there's a time and a place. I plan on spending every night with you in our own fantasy suite," he explained.
The last date was with Arie Luyendyk, Jr. They headed to ocean and had fun swimming with dolphins. Both admitted to the camera that there was chemistry between them, but Emily sent him back to his room at the end of their date. "I just want to be touching him," she gushed before explaining her reason. "At the end of the day, I don't trust myself. I won't let myself go there. But good lord, he's hot."
When it came to picking who stayed and who left, Emily told the guys, "I just feel really bad... I care so much about each of you. And I'm sorry." She finally dropped the bomb, giving a rose each to Jef and Arie but not to Sean. "I'm not sure what to say," the reject said. "I feel kind of stupid. I was ready to spend forever with you."
