I'm pretty sure the only way this season can be redeemed is if there is a mass exodus of all the guys and they push Ashley off a boat in the middle of the ocean.
WORD. When asked what kind of super-power I'd like to have, I have always wished for the ability to reach through a TV screen or a magazine and SMACK SOME SENSE into people. And I was wishing for it tonight.
She's been wrapped by Bentley since day one and I think I have a possible reason. It's not because he is particularly charming. No. Not that simple. It's because to Ashley, he's the "hot guy" in the house. She never got the "hot guy". She dated the sensible guy. He represents what she could (and would) never have in her "real" life.
You may be onto something. Underneath the extensions and fancy gowns is the nerdy dental student with a ton of insecurities.
I like Ames, he really came alive in the one-on-one date last week, just the sense of wonder on his face exploring the caves was appealing. And I like how he was the only one smiling at her at the beginning of the rose ceremony. Naturally, that means that Ashley will kick him to the curb sooner or later.
And having had a mild concussion myself, I really felt bad for him. You don't always know what exactly is wrong with you. I can't imagine wanting to put up with the idiocy that is Ashley, straight from the hospital.
If the producers brought back Bentley and let him stay to continue to compete for Ashley and manipulate her some more, I think I'm done with this horrible enterprise. No more Bachelors or Bachelorettes for me. If they brought him back for closure, okay. But the next Bachelorette had better be smarter than a rock.
