Each week, The Bachelorette’s season 4 winner, pro snowboarder Jesse Csincsak, has been blogging about Ashley Hebert’s search for love on the latest edition of ABC’s The Bachelorette.
Let’s see what Jesse has to say this week …
Here we are back again for week six of ABC’s The Bachelorette season seven, with Ashley Hebert.
As usual, 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.
This week’s episode was very interesting: It was filled with a ton of awkward pauses & dramatic overreactions. But was it really Ashley … or is it all done in the editing bay?
The show starts off with Chris Harrison coming to Ashley’s room to tell her she will get closure this week with Bentley “because he’s here in the building.”
Ashley 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’s another awkward pause before she knocks at his door. This is when things get interesting! THEY KISS … Not sure why?
Then, they sit down and start to talk IN COMPLETE CIRCLES!
Bentley says, “I flew here to see you and put on my shirt and YOU UNDERSTAND WHERE I AM COMING FROM RIGHT?”
Saying absolutely nothing at all that makes any sense to her, just like before he left the show the first time. OK, so 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 he seems to be a magician talking!
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, and that she should have listened to Michelle Money in the first place!
Everyone wants to know why he came back … well, if Mike Fliess offered to pay for you to have a free trip to Hong Kong, would you?
OK, enough with Bentley and onto the other dates ….
Group Date with Dragon Boat Racing:
This was pretty funny to watch teams recruiting people to help them paddle was funny watching people look at them like they were crazy.
Is it wrong that every time Aimes talks, now I picture him getting punched in the face? At least Aimes and Mickey won the boat race … well done fellas!
This group date was a big one for Aimes! He wins 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 on 1 with Lucas:
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 every bit of 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 it was totally unnecessary. JP was a good sport about the whole thing and even 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 ‘em — Blake, Mickey, Lucas, Constantine — are upset.
Blake calls her out and is honest with her about his feelings 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, so HE DID! (MICKEY, I GOT NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR YOU MY MAN! I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME IF I WERE IN YOUR SHOES!)
Onto the Rose Ceremony:
4. Ben F
Mickey & Blake Went home!
Next week: More of Asia, then onto the exotic dates in Fiji … and a possible comeback? Could it be Mickey? Could him 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!
ABC’s The Bachelorette returns next Monday at 8/7c.
