Utahn Jef Holm won the heart of Emily Maynard in Sunday night’s season finale of “The Bachelorette.”

Holm, 28, an entrepreneur from Salt Lake City, beat out 24 other men, including fellow finalist Arie Luyendyk, Jr., in the reality-TV dating competition.

Luyendyk is a race-car driver from Scottsdale, Arizona.

Maynard, 26, a single mother whose fiancee died in a plane crash, won the chance to be “The Bachelorette” after her romance fizzled with Brad Womack in season 15 of “The Bachelor.”

The production temporarily moved from Los Angeles to Maynard’s hometown in Charlotte, North Carolina, so that she could stay with her daughter Ricki Hendrick during off-days. The season premiered on May 14.

If you still need a fix related to the popular TV show, “Bachelor Pad” debuts tonight on ABC, with this season’s finalists Tony Pieper, Chris Bukowski and Kalon McMahon competing for love and money.
