Poor poor Ashley

I came into this season not being a big Ashley fan. But how can you not feel sorry for the girl after tonight?

Let's start at the beginning. I never really liked Ben. He always seemed too eager. But during the dance portion of his date, he started to grow on me. I love the flash mob business and he was really cute dancing with Ashley to the band. I turned to Sam and said "he's cute." Then they went to dinner and he started talking super duper fast about love and he started to freak me out. Not cute anymore dang it. But Ashley didn't seem to mind. He still got a rose. I still like Ben. Hopefully, he can chill a bit.



Onto the group date at the Comedy club. These dates are ALWAYS a disaster. I thought Blake (the dentist) did pretty well. The guys who played it safe and only made fun of the other guys were the smartest. I don't care if the point of the whole thing was to roast Ashley--you don't do it!



Willian William William. You were so cute and had so much potential. You have those cute dimples--why do you have to be such a bonehead? He really blew it tonight. I almost started crying when he roasted Ashley. It was soooo uncomfortable. And why all the jokes about her boobs? Seriously.

This is where Bentley comes in full force. I don't get it folks. Why is he on the show. He isn't promoting his business (the trampoline place). Why does he keep leading Ashley on? And for the love, why does he keep telling the cameras how he has no feelings for her, is not attracted to her, etc etc. Ashley is going to be 10x as crushed as she is right now when she watches the show.


Could he be a bigger jerk? I have no idea why she is so attached to him. He mumbles, he doesn't compliment her or tell her he is in love with her. He is just weird and cocky and awkward and sooooo mean.

Did you all love how he paused in his diatribe about how unattractive Ashley is to say that at one moment she straddled him and he thought he could hook up with her here and there. He is disgusting. The rumor is, he comes back at some point in the show. Honestly. I hope every woman in America is watching and seeing what a smarmy, skeaze he is.

J.P. looks like a knight in shining armor after Bentley. I felt bad for him though. He got Ashley in glasses and sweats and a puffy face...not cute.

I liked Chris Harrison's chat with Ashley. He is always the voice of reason. I forgot to even talk about the old dude taking off the mask...so anticlimatic...who even cares?



Don't you all think Costantine and the other Ben look like twins?

Who are we rooting for now people? I kind of like Ryan and J.P. and I hate to admit it, William. I kind of think Ames is cute too even though his eyes are way too far apart. What about you folks?

Are you for real??
AMES???
He looks like Quasimodo. A dead ringer.
I can't get over how awful Bentley is. He make me vomit. William blew it and I'm shocked that she gave him a rose.
JP is darling.
Ben talkes WAY too fast.
Constantine looks like a caveman and I have NO idea why he's there.
Jeff looked better with the mask on.

There you have it! :)

Kami Galbraith said...

Bentley is soo mean. seriously he ends with a . . .
Nothing good comes out of a roast. I'm surprised Ashley agreed to it. Dimples was stupid!
Soo sad Jeff burned the mask. I will miss the creepy music!!

As always, this was fun to read.

I went to Hulu to watch this show because everyone was talking about it. Brooke I watched for 8.24 minutes and felt like I had to go take a shower. Bentley is so proud of himself for the "show" he had to put on, when really he showed to world what a douche he is and his lack of character by making up lies about his child, what kind of @&$**%# does that. I hope the people in Salt Lake stone him!

Lauri said...

Masked man Jeff is creepy and weird, I found it hard to even look at him. I thought it was so tacky also for Bentley to say that he's not attracted to Ashley, but could probably hook up with her from time to time....what a jerk!!! Seriously, bad thing to say on national tv! And did you catch him saying that he wished she had been Emily....!!! He's cute, but that is definitely the ONLY thing he has going for him! I felt bad for Ashley.

Greg said...

where is Casey when we need someone to Guard and Protect the Bachelorette's heart???

Greg said...

Cozy must be so proud of her dad! :(

Sam said...

It's unfortunate that no one warned Ashley about Bentley...oh, wait.

While watching last night's episode, I only have one question:

How does Ashley (someone who has already gone through one season of the Bachelor) fall so in love with Bentley (someone she was warned about) in a few weeks?

That chick is crazy. I think that fact is being ignored in light of Bentley's behavior.

Stephanie said...

Wow--stoning,caveman,Quasimodo! Haha! The Roast--bad idea!! Why would she even be okay with that. William,aka Dimples, showed incredibly bad form roasting Ashley like that. He was laughing at his own "jokes" that couldn't even qualify as a joke or even partially funny. Most of the other guys played it smart, safe and kind. Dimples showed his competitive side and put his desires/hopes for success above Ashley. That was low of him and sad. I liked that he was beating himself up over it--he should. I liked that she gave William the last rose. Did he deserve it? No. But I can tell he really likes her and feels terrible about it. There is something attractive about that. As opposed to Bentley, who gave me an unwanted inside view of a twisted mind...he was giving me the creeps. Run away Ashley,run away!! I was thankful that the camera man was there with them, and that she wasn't left alone with him. Scariness!

Auctioneer Ben needed a sedative on that dinner date! He was giving me a brain cramp just trying to follow what he was saying-gave up. I thought he was cute and a good sport for dancing like that! I like JP, but there is something about him that I'm not sure about yet. Hmmm... I still think Ryan could be the one in the end but I'm curious why he starts getting on all the other guys' nerves. What now? I'm so hooked.

Stephanie said...

Let me clarify, I meant to say, "Did William deserve a rose? and that would be a big No."

Kim said...

Love your blog! I come to read this EVERY season. You are awesome! It's the only reason I can stand to watch. I agree with all you said. I also think the out take at the end when the masked man is POOPING and Bently is FIXING HIS HAIR (what the???? PUUUULEASE!!!) shows exactly what kind of a guy Bently is!

Linda said...

I always agree with Laura - right on! I don't see the attraction at all to Constantine and his twin - the other long-haired guy!(??) Speaking of HAIR - here we go - Kim, I was laughing so hard at the ending clip of Bozo Bentley messing and messing w/ his hair while maskman's on the loo. (I called Paul in to watch that part) The funniest thing to me was that I thought Bentley always looked like he had bed-head. BTW - I never thought Bentley was the least bit attractive - he looks disgusting --you just know he smells bad! (he has that smell-bad look) I think the only attraction for Ashley must have been that he was the forwarned "bad-boy" like that old Seinfield episode where the girl wants George because Elaine told her he was "trouble." Good riddance, Bentley!!
One more "hair comment" - what was Chris Harrison doing w/ his hair before the rose ceremony? Hilarious!

Linde said...

Did you catch the way Bentley said (when he was "comforting" her at the comedy club), "At least 24 guys came here wanting to be with you." I know she thought he meant William didn't want her to be there, when he meant himself. Then as he was telling us he was going to say good-bye to her he says, "I hope my hair looks good." Did you see him primping in the bathroom during the credits at the end of the show???? She is on Jimmy Kimmel tonight and I'm taping it so I can see if she is watching this and what she thinks.

I thought what Chris Harrison said about the no closure thing being a guy thing to say. Trying to let her know she is bette to move on, without giving it all away.

Mask man might have been better had he come in more "normal." I like Ryan and JP also. Even thought William blew it, I think she thought about what a good date they had and maybe that was better than the lack of connection with the other 2 guys.

What I was surprised about is that: 1. The show did a roast. There is rarely anything funny about a roast even when the "roaster" doing it know the "roastee" really well. 2. Why did Williamm never say he was sorry. Maybe they edited it out.

I just read this: cocoolalalife.blogspot.com
and I am still not buyin' it. Bentley is skeezy as can be and just watching him brought back all of my jr. high insecurities. Poor, poor Cozy (partially because she has to live with that name but mostly because her dad is a creepster.)

cjdustin said...

Gotta agree with Laura...Ames?? My husband and I were trying to decide if he was from another planet? Cross between Quasi and Megamind. But he does seem very nice so you gotta give him that. William.Come.On.Seriously??? Bentley doesn't even deserve the effort that my mind takes to generate a thought regarding him. Trash!

I hate that I love to watch this show!

marta said...

this show sucks me in every time. agreed with everything you said about bentley. he is such a dick. he was totally being 'cute' to her and leading her on. he's such a nerd. and isn't it so sad how she totally LOVED him (bad boy factor) and could NOT stop crying about it?!! seriously. it's bad news.

Jenn J. said...

You heard Bentley comes back? Seriously. Drama.

Poor Ashley. I feel bad for her insecurities and can't say I blame her. I mean, Emily? Who can compete with that?

As for the guys, I like Ryan. I like that he was so sweet to her after the whole roast thing.

I have to hand it to the masked man since he likely wouldn't have made it past the first night without his mask on. So for that I give him props. Well played, Masked Man, well played.

I like that Chris Harrison was trying to casually steer her away from Bentley. I also love that Sam said, "If only someone had warned her about him... oh wait." It's so true. Poor Ashley.

alexandra said...

I seriously think that Bentley is a psychopath in a clinical sense. He has absolutely no regard for her feelings. "I hate it when people cry. It is so unattractive." It is like he is not a real person.

I was sad she sent Chris D home. I only watched two 15 min clips, but he at the very least seemed way better than some of the other guys. William, in my view, is an idiot who should have gone home. I think that he was sadder about the poor audience and host reaction to his jokes than about hurting her feelings and now he is doing damage control by pretending to own up to deserving to go home. Also, was he drunk during his totally pathetic apology. "There is nothing I can say to make you feel better so I am not going to even try." Lame. And wrong. Say you didnt mean it. idiot.

This show is so terrible and Ashley is never going to recover from the damage she will endure watching the season air.

Em said...

These comments are gold! Your mom's is the best by far.

I will probably do what I usually do and start tuning in when it's down to the final 10 or less. This season however, I've been reading Ashley's and Chris's blogs on people.com. Chris makes me sick extolling the virtues of the producers in "we warned Ashley about Bentley." Granted, she's a sucker. But still...

Did that Mask guy look as creepy on the show as he does in his unmasked photo? His eyes make him look unstable.

Denise said...

Girl, you are raking in the comments, aren't you? My comment is for Sam. How can I get Jimmy to watch with me? I'm amazed and impressed that you are watching...amazed...

Linde, I was thinking the same thing when Bentley started saying that 24 of the guys wanted her to be there!! He is such a snake!

I totally agree that the masked man wouldn't have lasted so long without the mask! :)

Could not believe that Bentley was so into separating each piece of hair...while the phantom was on the pot! Wrong on sooo many levels!! I loved the comment on knowing Bentley smells bad! Yes, I have to agree.

Stephanie said...

Poor Bentley--I would not want to walk a quarter of a mile in his shoes right now! What was he thinking?!

Greg said...

Was it just me, or did Masked Man look better with the mask on?

Stephanie said...

I thought this was interesting:

http://www.twirlit.com/2011/06/10/bachelorette-2011-bentley-williams-and-ex-wife-suzette-davis-master-manipulation-plan/

Any thoughts?

brooke said...

LKC,

I read the story and watched the interview. First, I think the ex-wife is adorable and once again, Bentley blew it by screwing things up with her. Second, I don't think those two are bright enough to cook up a scheme like that especially to sell a line of baby hair accessories and three, I don't think Bentley would go on the show and act like that big of jerk to push his ex-wife's business...I don't think he would act that way if it wasn't who he truly was. He is repugnant and I hope he never dates again.

But thanks for sharing--I love reading stuff like that!

Ashley said...

Ames is becoming more attractive because the rest of them are getting worse. Ryan the solar guy who I used to like is too cheesey-Jake-Pavelka-esque and he didn't impress me at the roast. JP and the trainer from Florida are cute, Blake the dentist was impressively funny at the roast, Mickey is surprisingly a front-runner for me, and Bentley is hardly worth discussing. I understand being controversial to get publicity a la Michelle Money, but Bentley went for publicity without having the brains to maintain any sort of likability or decency. What a bonehead! I have to say I liked the flash mob dance--at least we haven't seen that a dozen times already!

Greg said...

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Don't know if this is true or not, but what a prince:
