Emily Maynard, fallen hero

Emily not only quickly became the queen of Brad's season, but she went on to win his heart as well. She's so sweet, sugar probably doesn't melt in her mouth, but add in her tragic backstory and we have the walking, talking Barbie doll that everyone wants to hate but can't help but love. Except -- she seemed a little nutty during the "After the Final Rose" ceremony. Then her breakup with Brad played out very publicly, and her post-breakup interview with Chris Harrison had her coming across as a bit of a whiner. On her own season of "The Bachelorette," the viewers were very divided on whether Emily was awesome or a fly-off-the-handle crazy person.
