Maynard was confirmed in January as the star of the upcoming new season, which will premiere on May 14.
She has admitted that appearing on the show is "definitely a huge risk" but said that she won't settle for anything less than love.
Meanwhile, former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert - who lost out to Maynard in the 15th season of The Bachelor - has described her as "the sweetest person" she's ever met and added: "I know Emily is going into this with really high hopes that she does find her one true love and after everything she's been through I hope she finds it."
Brad Womack proposed to Maynard in the season finale of The Bachelor last year but the couple confirmed their split in June.
The Bachelorette, starring Maynard, will premiere on May 14 at 9.30/8.30c on ABC.
