Trimming the Fat



This isn't another post about my weight loss efforts. I've pretty much fallen off the wagon on that front. This is about Ashley getting rid of three guys who didn't stand a chance.

To be honest, I liked lawyer Ben. He was a bit eager at times, but he was sincere and he was smart and kind. And next to William, he looked like George Clooney. William is the world's biggest dufas. I was sooo annoyed with him when he was totally sloshed before the date and kept saying cocky stuff to Ben. Then he goes on the date and acts totally immature and throws Ben under the bus ("I'm not trying to throw the guy under the bus but....")

I felt so bad for Ben. The whole way it went down was so cowardly. Ashley should have given Ben a chance to defend himself before getting rid of him. Clearly, she wanted him to go anyway, but she shouldn't have canned him right after she spoke to William. Ben deserved to be angry.

I was thrilled when she sent William packing as well.

As for Meathead, I feel bad for him. He seems really nice and genuine, and he spoke more tonight than he has the entire season. But he wasn't a contender so he had to go.

Poor poor Ames. What the crap were the producers thinking having them fight? I hated that whole thing. Ames is so polite, he let all the other guys pick their outfit first, and he ends up in hot pink! And then gets his bell rung in the ring because he's not a fighter. He still has a pretty good bod though. I wonder what he is doing to work out. The only silver lining of the whole fighting business was seeing the guys with no shirts on. There really hasn't been enough hot tubbing this season!

I don't think Mickie said a word tonight. Lucas is cute but I'm still afraid of him. The cavemen are soooo ugly. Constantine wants to go home and for the love, I hope Ashley comes to her senses soon and sends him packing. Ben is so gnarly and if she ends up with him, I swear on a stack of bibles I will never watch the show again. That little kissing charade in front of the temple was so nasty. I thought I was watching Elizabeth tease Jake (don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about!)

I want Ryan gone. I'm tired of him blowing sunshine up Ashley's skirt. I actually like Blake. I've come around on him. I think he might have a chance.

Bentley--it is all making sense now. Sam's friend said Bentley went to Hong Kong but then the previews last week made it look like he was going to be in Thailand. Next week is going to be so ugly. It looks like all the guys turn on Ashley and Bentley does too!

I only saw a few minutes tonight, but it seemed to me like Ashley's spirit has been broken by the whole Bentley thing. It's really too bad.

I feel terrible hearing Ashley talk about how she "feels" some sort of connection with Bentley. Her woman's intuition is not doing her any favors.

Don't you make out with Sam in front of temples??

What a strange night on Bach! William seriously needs to grow up--nice way to throw a brother under the bus! I couldn't believe she believed it all so quickly and turned so fast on Ben. She must not have been very into Ben to not give him a word to defend himself. He didn't deny the online dating thing though--he said he was just kidding about it...um yeah, you can go now. I'm glad for Ben that William was quickly sent packing too. I love it that William realizes how stupid he was--still like that quality about him. Wish he would learn something from it though. I was just hoping Constantine would be going home tonight too--can't believe she kept him. He doesn't seem to care about her either.

I was just dying that they made them fight each other for a date! Really? Who thought that would be a good idea. Poor Ames just was not all there after that. He was nodding and smiling to comments as if he wasn't getting what they were talking about and just staring through people. Poor puppy. :) He deserved to stay tonight.

I'm still not sick of Ryan yet but it is strange. I actually liked Blake after this week too. He seemed more humble this week or something. That's a good sign.

I am so scared for the Bentley thing to go down the way it is. The guys should feel a bit betrayed. After this whole Bentley thing it will be amazing if guys don't just start walking off the show. Wow. I'm scared for next week!

When Ashley was talking to Chris about Bently, I just wanted Chris to pull out just one minute of the footage when B was talking Ashley. That's the way you can get over him, my friend. Seriously, it's bordering on crazy. The guy is hot, that's why you liked him...get over it.

I was impressed about Ashley's judgment when she sent William home, why doesn't she have the same sense about B???

She needs to get over B, marry JP and finish up this season because I can't take any more. She's lucky that I have to have SOMEthing to watch while I fold laundry...

Jill said...

Does she have to choose one of them because these guys sound like chumps!

SewSara said...

"blowing sunshine up her skirt!" lol!
best line ever.

JP and Blake are the only ones left that I like!

Oh, this show is getting more horrible by the week! Poor Ames! He seems like a really good guy. Ryan is also driving me nuts. Please, please, please let him go home next week. I'm so irritated that Chris Harrison just doesn't tell Ashley what a jerk Bentley is. She is looking like the biggest fool!!!!

leandparkermakes3 said...

Oh! Ben, you were pretty nice considering how stupid William sold you out! So glad the cell phone salesman went home.

Ashley said...

William was SUCH a doofus. Obviously she was looking for any reason to drop Ben which is too bad--he wasn't the worst. I just realized that JP is a small man. Mickey is still great (why is no one else cheering for him?) and I'd like to see you try to not watch if she chooses Ben the winemaker. The fighting was the worst--made me sick to watch it but at the same time would you rather see them act out another soap opera? Me neither.

Stephanie said...

Mickey is so quiet--we hardly know anything about him yet. That is in his favor right now. :)

Jek said...

oh, thank you for keeping these recaps going. Between facebook, email and your blog, this is a weekly obsession reading these. MICKEY=not cute. Is it just me? The cavemen are actually growing on me. I didn't watch last week. I have never missed an episode yet in Bachelor history, but this season is painful to watch. I don't mind Ashley, but the world knows she was not a front runner, and lets face it, she knows and the guys know it. I feel like everyone is trying to convince themselves. AARRGGHHH!! This season is so frustrating. WHO WOULD GIVE UP BRAD WOMACK? Ashley. Why? Because she doesn't want to get married. She wants dental school and she wants to live where she wants. She likes bentley because he is hot. ANd who hasn't fallen for the typical hot, jerky popular Provo guys. We all know the same crowd that Bentley comes from. Love them actually, but it's a total game. That is the one thing that shocks me. Look what happened when sleezeball blonde (can't think of her name, something trampy I think...Roxy??) was hooking up with the producer. They canned her immediately. I can't believe that they continued to allow Bently to say ALL THAT CRAP on the show. I actually thought the producers had a little integrity. a little. I feel like they want to end the Bachelor for good and need to go down real hard. This season is struggling. ANd the saddest part? It has some of the cutest guys (at least until we are starting to really know them). It cracks me that all the hot guys in America had the nerves to sign up HOPING AND PRAYING, possibly FASTING that the chick would be Emily. It's been said all over the show and everyone knows that. Ashley the most. Too bad, so sad. I feel for her. I really think, she should have stayed blonde. She is not a brunette. We haven't even seen the cutesy flirty ashley yet. Not sure we will. Wow, I think I care to much. I have 3 kids under 5 waking me up in a matter of hours.

I'm with Ashley--I'm a Mickey fan. But I don't think he's going to last much longer. He and JP are still my favorites. Their fight and commentary was my favorite. That and Meathead's comment about only boxing once.

Sweet Ames/Sam. I thought Ryan P was a real jerk tearing him up like he did. The whole time I was worried Ames wasn't receiving proper medical care there in Thailand....

Since Sam has a connection to Bentley the Tool he should be offering up waaaay more behind the scenes info!
