Well Courtney has moved on to a new Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. the race car driver from Emily Maynard‘s season!

Emily Maynard Nascar Boyfriend Jason White
Reality star Emily Maynard has moved on from former Bachelorette fiance Jef Holm and is reportedly dating Jason White, a 33-year-old NASCAR truck racer, according to celebrity Us Weekly. The two were spotted getting cozy at Carrie Underwood’s Charlotte, N.C., concert on Nov. 3.
“They were all over each other,” a source told the magazine. “Jason guided her through the crowd and held her hand as they walked downstairs.” (They later ventured off alone to the club Suite, a source tells Us).
“Emily tried something new, dating Jef,” says a pal. “She is going to go back to what she knows and considers safe.”
Did Emily Maynard Cheat on Jef Holm?
“The Bachelorette” reality star Emily Maynard recently denied claims that she was caught cheating on fiance Jef Holm — but according to TMZ, someone in Jef’s family is backing up the story!
The reality star couple are very much together now (just check out the photo above of the happy couple on Tuesday above), Us Weekly says they had a huge fight while vacationing with Jef’s family earlier this month.
The report said Jef also found “explicit text messages” sent to and from another man on Emily’s phone.
“It’s one hundred percent not true,” Maynard said to People of the story, with Jef adding “It’s just bogus a ‘source’ would [say] we were fighting. None of that is true.”
But now Jef’s brother is telling a very different story. “I can tell you that it’s all 100% true,” Mike Holm tells Us Weekly today. “I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything. I love my brother very much and, like the rest of our family, I just want him to be happy.”
Breaking News: Jef just tweeted about his brother, writing “It’s crazy what people will do, even family members, to see their name in a magazine.”
Update: The Bachelorette Jef Holm’s Religion
We previously reported on the topic of The Bachelorette contestant and now one of the final two guys remaining, Jef Holm being a believer in the Mormon faith, but now we have received new reports that he was raised Mormon. However, at this time he is not practicing the Mormon faith, though religion plays a very important role in his life.
So how are Jef and Emily going to work out if they end up engaged? We all know faith is important to Emily Maynard, who is a practicing Evangelical Christian and southern girl. But we also know that Jef recently made it clear that he is not an active Mormon.
During the last episode on Monday night Emily asked Jef if he wanted to stay in the Fantasy suite with her and this was his response.
“What do I think,” he asked, a little embarrassed. “I think it would be awesome to forego our individual rooms, but I understand and respect that your daughter and my family will be watching this. They’re involved in this process too. There’s a time and a place. I plan on spending every night with you in our own fantasy suite.”
For someone who’s “not a practicing Mormon,” he obviously still retains his moral direction.
Chris Bukowski Voted Off The Bachelorette
The man from the windy city Chris Bukowski was voted off from the final four in tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette. Chris was a sales director from Chicago, but during Monday night’s hometown dates episode Chris couldn’t sell his pretty guy looks to stay around for the final 3. For regular viewers of the show, it was becoming very noticeable that Emily’s connection with Chris was lagging behind the other guys during the hometown episode.
“Everything seemed like it was perfect. I loved the girl. I thought she loved me back,” he said in his limo exit interview. And just as his comments were eliciting a bit of sympathy, he took a dirty turn by saying; “I’m 10 times the man than [expletive] all those dudes that are still in there right now”. Chris definitely exited the show with a nasty taste in the viewers mouths and will probably regret his bad mouth during The Bachelorette reunion with all the guys present. Looking forward to next weeks episode with the final 3 guys remaining; Arie, Jef and Sean.
Jef Holm from the Bachelorette Mormon?
Things are heating up between Bachelorette Emily Maynard and hipster Jef Holm on ABC’s “The Bachelorette 2012,” and Monday night episode is a pivotal point in the show! Jef did a conference call with the media last week, and Friday ABC posted the transcript of the interview on their site. One topic that viewers have been wondering about is Jef Holm’s religion, as he has sometimes been described as being “half-Mormon.” Jef was asked about this on the call, and fans will be quite interested to hear him address the issue.
Jef shared in the interview that his parents are currently Mormon missionaries in South Carolina.
So his Parents Are Mormon — And that means he Is Possibly, Too. It’s hardly a surprise that Jef’s Mormon or as the Bachelorette fans have been saying “half Mormon” — after all, he’s from Utah! The verdict’s still out on whether or not Jef’s particularly religious, but either way, Emily’s sure to love him.
