Here we are back again for week 6 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!
This week was interesting for me to watch. It was filled with a ton of awkward pauses and dramatic overreactions. But was it really Ashley or is it all done in the editing room?
Bentley Talks In Dizzying Circles
The show starts off with Chris Harrison coming to Ashley’s room to tell her that she will get closure this week with Bentley “Because he’s here in the building,” says Chris. Ashley dramatically says “SHUT UP!” Then after numerous awkward pauses and talking to herself for about 30 seconds she heads upstairs to his room to chat.
Once Ashley arrives at Bentley’s door, there is another awkward pause before she knocks at his door. This is when things get interesting! As Bentley opens the door — Ashley puckers up! And THEY KISS! Do we even know why they felt the need to greet each other like this?
Ashley and Bentley sit down and start to talk in complete circles! Are we the least bit surprised? Bentley says things like, “Well I flew here to see you and put on my shirt and YOU UNDERSTAND WHERE I AM COMING FROM RIGHT?”
We gotta hand it to you Bentley — you really have a way with words — not! Bentley says absolutely nothing that makes sense to Ashley, which is just like how he was before he left the show the first time. I think this guy is used to just talking to girls until they are confused enough to do what he wants. Bentley should have his own show in Las Vegas with Penn & Teller because WOW He seems to be a magician talking without using any words at all!
After a mini episode of “The Hills” complete with drama and lingering awkward stares Ashley finally gets it through her head that Bentley is a grade A dirtbag who uses women! She should have listened to Michelle Money in the first place! Everyone wants to know why he came back. This one is pretty easy folks! If Mike Fleiss offered to pay for you to have a free trip to Hong Kong would you go?
Ok enough with Bentley onto the other dates!
The Boys Get Competitive With Dragon Boat Racing:
In this date, Ashley asks the guys to team up and create dragon boat teams. This was pretty funny to watch teams recruiting people to help them paddle! The locals were definitely looking at the guys like they were crazy.
Is it wrong that every time Ames talks now I picture him getting punched in the face? At least Ames and Mickey won the boat race! Well done fellas!
This group date was a big one for Ames! He won the boat race then proceeds to pull Ashley away at the cocktail party and give her a kiss of a lifetime; I was blown away when I saw this. It just wasn’t enough because Ryan then pulls Ashley away and she gives him the group date rose!
1 0n 1 with Lucas:
Ashley talks Lucas on a walk through downtown Hong Kong. Lucas has never been to a big city so this is definitely a cool date for him. Lucas says after walking through downtown Hong Kong with Ashley that it feels like they have been dating for awhile. He proceeds to have a serious chat with her about life, and it obviously it all worked out for him because he got the rose!
1 on 1 with JP:
This date was a bit weird to me. First off, it was strictly an evening date? When is the last time we have ever seen that happen? Secondly, Ashley tells JP about her past with Bentley, including how she felt, and why she was so bummed when he left. I can understand why she did it, but in my opinion, it was totally unnecessary. JP was a good sport about the whole thing and thanked her for her honesty! In my personal opinion JP is getting too much camera time to be the winner unless Ashley and JP’s love story is just being laid out in front of us like never before.
Onto the Cocktail Party:
Ashley tells all the guys about the Bentley stuff and most of the guys are pissed. In particular, Blake, Mickey, Lucas, Constantine show their feelings the most!
Blake calls her out and is honest with her about his feelings. Unfortunately for Blake– honesty may not have been the best policy. and that’s why I think he got sent home. Mickey impressed me like a true Ohio boy and pulled Ashley off to the side and said, “Send me home!” Ashley told him he could just leave if he wanted, and so he did! Mickey, I got nothing but love for you. I would have done the same if I were in your shoes.
Onto the Rose Ceremony:
These boys get roses…
- 1. Lucas
- 2. Ryan
- 3. JP
- 4. Ben F
- 5. Constantine
- 6. Ames
Mickey & Blake went home!
Next week: We see more of Asia then the group heads to the exotic dates in Fiji! The question is, does someone else come back? Could it be Mickey? Could his going home early have been a set up for the end? Does Mickey have a connection with Ashley that the editing room has left out of the show? Only time will tell!
