For all your episode-by-episode spoilers of Ashleys season, either click on the “Bachelorette Ashley Spoilers” link at the top of the page, or click here. Do not read if you don’t want to know who Ashley is with. You’ve been warned.
So the spoilers I’ve given up until now have only gone up to through the final four. Here’s what I knew at the time: Those are your final four. Then I heard Ryan P. makes a return to the show in Fiji. The overnights are filmed in one part of Fiji, the final rose ceremony in another. I believe Ryan appears in the “overnight date” episode since he’s not part of the final rose ceremony, that’s for sure. Not clear as to the reasoning behind him re-appearing, but I’m assuming it was to try and win Ashley back. That doesn’t happen. He returns, but is sent back home, and isn’t part of the final rose ceremony, as I told you last week. The other thing I always knew was Constantine went home at the overnight dates, because the guy was back at his restaurant before the week of meeting Ashley’s parents, last chance date, and final rose ceremony was filmed. So that was easy knowing it wasn’t him. The final piece I was looking for was who was sent home at the hometowns between Ames and JP. Knowing Constantine left at the overnights, then I knew the other would be in the final two. Not only did I find out that info, but I found out who the final guy is as well.
As I stated yesterday, there is no reason for me to answer any questions like “Are you sure?”, “How do you know?”, “Were you there?”, “Who’d you hear this from?” etc. All ridiculous questions that no matter how I answer, I’m in a lose-lose situation. I will tell you how the finale plays out, who Ashley is with, and we’ll let the finale on Aug. 1st vindicate me. Nothing I can say will convince you I’m right other than the finale, due to me being wrong the last two seasons. And I’m fine with that. It’s expected. You have every right to be skeptical. I also have every right not to answer any questions regarding how I know the info this season, and that’s how I plan on handling it. I won’t be so in your face about it, I won’t constantly harp on who she chose, I’ll just tell you and let the next two months play out like I’ve told you they will. I’m sure I’ll get plenty of info the next couple months saying, “Ooooh, I saw this”, or “I saw Ashley here”, “Oh no, I hear it’s the other guy” (of course you do. You have a 50/50 shot of being right), or “I saw him here and boy does he look happy. I think you may be wrong”, etc. Won’t matter. My info is solid, so here it is:
-Ames is eliminated after the hometown dates.
-Constantine is sent home after the overnights. However, the circumstances surrounding his exit could be a little different. He might’ve eliminated himself, it might’ve been mutually agreed upon that both of them realized they weren’t a match for each other (apparently there might have been some major religious differences between the two), or maybe it is just a regular rose ceremony where he doesn’t get a rose. I’ve heard a few things. All I know for sure is he’s absolutely eliminated here.
-That leaves a final two of Ben F. and JP. In one of JP’s last appearances with Ashley, they go kayaking. Ashley is in a turquoise bikini and brown sarong. JP has a yellow shirt on.
-In one of Ashleys last appearances with Ben, he’s wearing a plain gray t-shirt and Ashley is wearing jean shorts, with a white and purple shirt.
-Ben worked for Let it Ride Design in San Diego before going on the show (you can even see him at the :20 mark in the video on their homepage. Go Storm Horse! You’re welcome for the free plug). He has since left that company and moved back up to San Francisco and is focusing on the winery. Doesn’t really mean much since…
-Ashley is engaged to JP.
So let the discussion begin, along with the proverbial doubting. All the information I’ve been given has told me Ashley is engaged to JP, and I’ll leave it at that. It took me a while to get what I was looking for, but I finally got what I needed. If anyone feels so inclined to barrage me with questions about the who, what, when, where, how, and why, the answer you will get in return is “tune in Aug. 1st.” That’s the best I can give ya’,
