Surprise, Surprise (said in a sarcastic tone)



So the big surprise fell through. I was supposed to have dinner with Bentley tonight. Sam works with his best friend and had the whole thing lined up. I was planning to ask him all sorts of questions about the process of applying for the Bachelorette, what made him decide to go on the show, what role the producers play in all of it and what on earth is the deal with the dude in the mask. But alas, Bentley cancelled at the last minute.

I was not surprised. Apparently, after Monday night's show, he was pretty embarrassed and rightly so. Honestly, I am embarrassed for the guy too. I would be hiding in a cave in Afghanistan if I said "tickle my pickle" on national tv.

I don't think he could have been a bigger jerk on the show if he had tried. His best line yet was "I'd rather be swimming in pee than planning a wedding with Ashley." I have a feeling it only gets worse next week. I was really hoping he was going to show me he was a decent guy in real life and I could blame his poor showing on the producers. But now I'm just going to blame him. I'm not a huge Ashley fan, but he is out of line. I don't think another contestant has ever said that many mean things about the person he is supposed to be wooing.

Keep hiding Bentley!

Tune in next week for a no-holds barred Bachelorette recap!

How exciting! You should totally stalk the B man until you get your interview. What a jerk.

Once a douche bag, always a douche bag. I can't stand him.

This is great--your blog is turning you into a reporter! ha! That's awesome! I wish you could have met the guy but I doubt he could have any good excuse for how the producers got him to say any of that--and on camera! Who would even do that? I was not the biggest Ashley fan after last season, but my heart goes out to the poor girl after seeing the way Bentley is talking about her. I am scared for next week. Steve just showed me an article from USA Today where Chris Harrison gives a glimpse into next week and says that Bentley wasn't a plant... I did a search for it online, it's worth reading.

That would have been so interesting!! I agree--he should be in hiding. If he wanted to do it to see if he could...I kind of get that, but he seemed so mean about Ashley. Not fair to her.

Linda said...

Amen, sista.

Laura said...

My husband dated Bentley's sister in high school. He said she is really trying to defend her brother on Facebook, but how do you do that when your brother is a scumbag?

That was not the surprise I was expecting, and now I am totally disappointed!! Until this week I thought the editing was making him look like a jerk. I'm actually surprised someone would act like that ever, let alone when they know they are being recorded.

I'm rmbarassed to admit I have been allowing my 8 year old daughter to watch this show with me. (She has seen bits and pieces before, but requested we watch all of these episodes together). I found a little comfort when she told me she would NEVER go on that show as the main girl or a dating girl because she would never let a boy kiss her when he was dating all the other girls, or be kissing so many boys at one time.

Is he even cute? Maybe I can't see past the attitude.

This is funny and sad all at the same time. (Sad that you didn't get your interview.)

All I can say is that Bentley is a poor man's Bradley Cooper. And I mean that as an insult because I really don't get all the fuss about Bradley Cooper.

Jen said...

Ah, the disappointment! I can only imagine the video footage/ pictures taken by you from under the table w/o him knowing. I hear he lives by me. Maybe I could drive by his house and take stalker pictures for your blog? ;)

Your life is RAD ! For Shizzle!

Jill said...

That would have been a very uncomfortable dinner for him, it's a good thing he canceled.

Once a d-bag, always a d-bag. He probably would have offered to buy you dinner, excused himself to use the restroom, and then bailed.

Stephanie said...

I love reading everyone's comments :)

I have a friend who is friends with one of Bentley's old mission companions. My friend had written something about Bentley being a jerk on FB and his old companion defended him saying that the show was portraying him the wrong way and editing him to look mean. I don't buy it for a second. How can you misquote "tickle my pickle" and "I wish the bachelorette had been Emily." ? He got caught with his pants down (figuratively) and now he can't face the music. I would've died to have heard what would've been said during that interview and I don't even know you!

Magdalena said...

He actually says ''tickle my peter" which is way more classy than pickle.

After watching last weeks show I was in disbelief over what Bentley said. He was so heartless talking about Ashley that it makes me sick that he could have ever served a mission. Apparently, he didn't fully comprehend what he was teaching...or forgot it. Not only did he disrepect Ashley but he showed an absolute bitterness toward all women. How could he even pretend to respect any woman if he's talking about "ramming his tongue down her throat" or any of his "tickle" talk...no matter what the specific words were. He is repulsive to me. I am just glad that he made such a spectacle out of himself and gave other women out there a warning. Bentley may have to go to another country to get a date after all this. Not the best strategist ever but he might be fun to play a boardgame against. As long as he's not the banker. ;)
