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?
