The season finale of ABC’s The Bachelor was over a week ago, but despite Brad Womack seemingly ending the season on a high note by actually picking someone this past season, Emily Maynard, it seems that yet another Bachelor couple have broken up, according to the latest edition of OK! Magazine.

We have been speculating on the relationship of the two here at Etidbits.com as of late. Last week, Emily Maynard flew from her home in North Carolina to Brad Womack’s hometown of Austin, Texas, where she met up with him, his closest friends and the wife of his friend (click here to view the photos). However, OK! is reporting that the everything between the two was nothing more than a show to make the impression that at least one couple in the rocky history of The Bachelor has made it.

Rumors of the two on rocky terms were evident coming out of the season finale last week. Maynard was apparently upset with the way Womack interacted with the other contestants on The Bachelor, and there were rumors by In Touch that Maynard met with a former boyfriend in her hometown. Her boyfriend even bragged to his buddies that he was reconnecting with his ex-girlfriend, even if the two met after Womack proposed to Maynard for the whole world to see.

According to a source close to OK!, a person close to the ABC reality series told the tabloid that the two are just putting on a show to make the impression that one couple made it on the reality series where we spend months getting to know the bachelor and the contestants, but shortly after, the bachelor and the person he asked to get engaged to end up splitting after the cameras stop rolling. The two, according to the source close to the Bachelor are broken up for good.
