Here we are back again for week 7 of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” season 7 with Ashley Hebert. I’m Jesse Csincsak and I am here with my behind the scenes opinions about what I saw on last night’s show. My opinions are simply based on my experiences on the show and my thoughts on the characters from last night’s show. With that being said, here we go!
While in Taiwan Ashley starts to speak her mind on the guys and how she feels about them. Ashley claims Ryan makes her feel safe and that she loves his energy. Lucas is such a genuine guy; Ames is unique, sweet and super intelligent; Ben is funny and has so many things going for him; Constantine is easy to talk to and look at; and JP makes me feel comfortable and secure. Okay, now I feel a little gross just writing that sappy crap about these guys!
Onto the one on one dates:
Constantine let your love light shine! First, Ashley and Constantine get on a steam train and head to a tiny village just outside of Taipei, which in my book is pretty cool because it would give them a good amount of time to just talk and get to know one another. Remember, at this point in the game there are only 6 guys. A lot of these guys are getting a ton of time with her that we are unable to see on TV, due to the limits of a 2 hour show. After their train ride they go to the spot where the love lanterns are. They light them, make wishes and set them fire. It looked cool on TV but I’m not sure that a ton of hairspray and a fire are a good combo at this point in the dating game! Ashley then begins to ask Constantine if he’s ready to fall in love or if he’s waiting for hometowns? He explains it has nothing to do with anything except WHEN THEY ARE BOTH FEELING IT AND READY! Great answer in my book bro, and apparently Ashley thought so too because at that point they started to kiss and then RAVED about how amazing each other were in their interviews!
“Ben, let’s spend a gorges day together,” and yes, that’s how she spelled gorgeous. Ashley explains that she needs to see an emotional and physical connection with each guy or they are not going to hometowns! In my opinion, Ben is one of the more emotional guys and I have seen them kiss and it looks legit so I bet he will last awhile. Ben even goes onto say that it feels so natural to have Ashley’s arms wrapped around him. He then goes as far to say that he’s falling in love with her and that he doesn’t drop the “L BOMB” with people. Ben then tells Ashley how pumped he is for HOMETOWN DATES smiles and kisses her! Well played in my book Ben. Ashley says that Ben feels like her boyfriend in her interview.
Lucas, Ames, JP
The three of you should have seen this coming! What guy would want to see his potential girl kissing some other piece of man meat in a wedding dress? I will tell you who: NO ONE! Dumbest date ever!
I am only going to touch on JP on this date since I got up and made a frozen pizza. It was that annoying! I’m surprised to see this side of JP. Every season there seems to be at least one guy who can’t handle seeing The Bachelorette eyeing other guys.
There must be a reason they are showing the JP drama. I am just not sure why yet. In any event, he is just being real and I can understand that! Where is Ben the next morning? He never came home last night. JP pretty much had steam coming out of his ears when he heard that! Mr. All Nighter himself walks through the door and JP gets up and leaves while Ben explains what happened over the last 36 hours.
Moving onto Ryan’s one on one date:
Ryan says when he is with Ashley everything else just disappears! They start off this date on a very bad note. Ashley takes Ryan to an ancient temple to play a 1000-year-old version of CRAPS where they flip these stones to try and make a wish. Too bad for him, the stones come up bad. They watch Tai Chi and Ryan explains that he hopes she doesn’t own a water heater. Eventually, it sinks in for Ashley and she realizes that he’s not the one! REALLY? NEWS BULLETEN! Ashley explains why to Ryan and he starts to cry, walks through the bushes sighing for about 10 minutes, then finally the show goes to commercial!
Onto the Rose Ceremony –
Ashley talks with Chris Harrison and explains she doesn’t need a cocktail party and that she’s ready to give out her roses.
1. JP – Date Rose
Lucas & Ryan get sent home
Next week it’s time for the HOMETOWN DATES!
Who’s family will be the crazy one? Who’s family will not show Ashley such a warm welcome? Tune in next week same place same time. LATER!
