BacheloralumsEmily and Haley Fergusonknow what you're thinking: "People are seeing what a disaster we are right now," Haley says of their new Freeform series,The Twins: Happily Ever After."But you can look forward to a lot of growth and maturity.Each episode gets better.Honestly."
While we don't always take reality show stars at their word (yes,we're looking at you Chris "the most dramatic finale ever" Harrison),Emily and Haley might be onto something.During a recent visit to theGlamourLos Angeles office,it was obvious that the 24-year-old twins love to play off each other and joke around,but they're also aware of the "dumb blond" reputation they received duringThe BachelorandBachelor in Paradise.And they want to change it.
"We kind of almost did it to ourselves," Haley says.Adds Emily: "We were so immature.We have so much to learn.Our happily-ever-after right now isn't about meeting the perfect person.It's about loving ourselves and trying to find things that we're good at.Already I've learned to be a lot more confident."
But make no mistake,you won't see Emily and Haley suddenly turn into life coaches by the season finale."The whole series is so fun," Haley says.Notes Emily: "I mean,David Hasselhoff makes an appearance!" (OK,so there'sthat.)
Perhaps most impressive of all is that the show really isn't about finding someone to accept the twins' final rose.It's about a couple of twentysomethings who had a career plan (elementary education) and then saw their life go in an entirely different direction."People are waiting longer to move out of their parents' home and get married," Haley says."Happily ever after is different for everybody."
So what is their ultimate goal by the end of the series?And what's it like navigating reality star fame when out in the real world?Here,the twins spill all.
Glamour: When I met you both last summer—before we knew Nick was going to be the Bachelor—you weresinging his praises,saying he is one of the best guys ever.How ironic that not only does he become the Bachelor,but you also got your own show.
Haley Ferguson:We never realized how ironic it was because when he filmedThe Bachelor,we still didn't know that this show was going to happen for us.
