Bachelorette Ashley Spoilers

Your “Bachelorette” Spoilers for Ashley’s Season

Haven’t been able to get the one piece of info I was looking for, so I will give you what I have right now, and that is all the spoilers up to the final four. This information could come to me at any minute, but frankly, I’m tired of waiting. So as long as you’re following me on Twitter or Facebook, you will be notified immediately when I have the final four breakdown. I tried to keep it as short as I could and didn’t bother with some details of 1-on-1’s since all that really matters, to me at least, is whether or not they got a rose. Here’s what I have so far:

Episode 1: 25 contestants down to 18

Here are the main highlights you need to know about the first episode:

If you haven’t seen the link that shows raw footage from the 25 guys limo exits, along with some sneak peeks at the cocktail party, here it is courtesy of

-Mickey is the first guy out of the limo and says exactly what Chantal said last season to Brad by saying, “This is from every guy in America…” But instead of slapping Ashley, he kisses her on the lips and she’s shocked.

-Ben Flajnik brings a bottle of wine and two glasses out of the limo to impress her. Good one. Getting her sh**faced early in the night can never hurt. And we know little Ashley likes her alcohol.

-Ben Castoriano speaks French to her, Nick Peterson reads her a poem, Jon Ellsworth picks her up and puts her over his shoulder, and Frank picks her up, spins her around, and dips her.

-During her opening conversation with Chris before meeting the guys, Ashley tells Chris that she’s been told that one of the guys cast on the on the show, Bentley Williams, isn’t there for the right reasons. Ashley says she was told this by a former “Bachelor” cast member who is friends with Bentley’s ex wife. Bentley lives in Salt Lake City, so it’s not hard to figure out who the person is who could’ve warned her about him. Who’s the only outspoken, most talked about girl from Brad’s season that lives in Salt Lake City? Now, this person doesn’t make an appearance on the show, nor do we see any sort of phone call or anything like that, but it’s just Ashley telling Chris she knows about Bentley because a former cast member warned her about him before she ever came on the show since she knows his ex-wife. However, Ashley is conflicted because she’s attracted to Bentley and wants to believe him. Boy, that was a mistake. As I predicted when I first heard Bentley eliminates himself, he does return later on in the show.

-Jeff Medolla is the guy who wears the mask because he wants Ashley to get to know him for what’s on the inside. Whatever dude. As Farmer Ted told his two dork friends in “Sixteen Candles”, “Take that ridiculous thing off”. This show isn’t very creative. Basically Jeff is this seasons Madison, without the fangs.

-Matt Colombo calls his mom on his cellphone while with Ashley so she can talk to her. His mom reminds both of them to use protection on the overnight dates. Obviously this was a set up by the producers since we know you can’t just knowingly carry a cell phone on you during your time on the show.

-Ben Castoriano writes on cue cards and holds them up to a window while Ashley is sitting and talking to two other guys.

-Tim McCormack is the guy who gets plastered on the first night and gets eliminated before the rose ceremony even begins. You’ve probably seen the clip by now of him passed out on the chair in the backyard. Ashley decides to send the guy home for falling asleep on her. Yeah, never a good idea guys. Women don’t take too well to that.

-Ryan Park gets the first impression rose. He’s the first guy to pull her aside for some 1-on-1 time once she enters the cocktail party. Based on a Chris Harrison quote saying, “Ryan rubs some guys the wrong way”, the consensus seems to be a few of the guys thought he was a bit phony and played it up for the cameras. However, the press release describes him as “high energy”, so maybe the guys mistook “high energy” for “phony, overacting, douchebag”. The odd thing about Ryan getting the first impression rose? He doesn’t get a 1-on-1 date until the 7th episode. Although it’s not totally guaranteed you get a 1-on-1 if you get the first impression rose (Dave Good never even got one, and Nikki got a 2-on-1), the last 3 seasons have had the first impression rose recipient get 1-on-1 dates rather early (Ashley Spivey, Roberto, Tenley).

    Ok,I this sounds like a snorefest, and none of the guys are hot!!! I’ll pass but I’ll keep reading.

    PS…saw Nikki K at Macy’s yesterday; hmmmmm short and kinda thick. Would think a pageant type would hit the gym more than the cupcakes.

    The final two and the chosen one are irrelevant. What matters is which of these mediocre guys will be the next bachelor. Ames is my bet. It was better when they had a themed bachelor.

    to “luv it” – here’s a hint: when you show you are only interested the exterior appearances of other people .. which both parts of your comment do .. it doesn’t reflect badly on any of them – only you.

    Awesome as always ! ! Sounds like another *yawn* installment. I think these final guys are kinda icky.

    Mickey – NOT the first one out of the limo. Goes in but misses on the kiss.

    Ashley is by far the WORST pick ever as the new “Bachelorette.” Her hair extensions look like he** and her laugh is annoying along with her personality! Ratings will go in the toilet for this poor pick. Her forehead – there are no words! She could scare flies off a meat wagon in the middle of a sh** storm!

    Who is thejerk with the mask on and when does he get booted off? the previews show bentley saying he could not care less about ashley and he wished the bachelorette was emily so i guess he is still on but her choice in the final four are icky! she is not the worst bachelorette – that would have to be the manly looking and sounding and drunk JILLIAN!

    If you want to find Bentley or whatever his name is along with his ex-wife just check That is the “dating” site of choice for all of the Mormon rejects of the world. They should do a Bachelor/Bachelorette just for single Mormons. The “fantasty suite,” would consist of a night of the ultimate Levi Lovin and instead of having a lovely glass of wine with dinner they could run to the local Walgreens and spend a night drinking Robitussin with the BYU co-eds.

    Wow, that Bentley guy is an A*S!!! I can’t believe some of the crap he was saying in his ITMs.

    I say that she choose Ben F it will be done to him and Constantine. Ashley has way different tastes than I do…so far my top 4 would be Ryan P, Mickey, Will and Matt…
    Wow Bentley is awful, I wonder what Ashley thought of last nights episode seeing him say he wishes it was Emily and that later on we see him say that Ash has none of the items on his check list. Honestly he is not good looking IMO, I would not have kept him I would have kept Jon instead, but once again that is my thoughts if I was there instead of her, Bentley and Ames would have been sent home and Jon would have been given a rose

    Ben F. Is a really great guy. I have known him for years. He may not be super hot, but he’s sweet and cut. I hope he wins.

  14. ariuszme

    May 24, 2011 at 5:19 PM

    only one I find hot is the guy from Sonoma, the wine maker, Ben F (Flajnik). I hope he takes it all the way with Ashley!

    here’s his page

    Bentley owns a “trampoline” family fun center in Draper, Utah called Airbound. He would never have survived the Bachelorette with his Mormon Jammies and his BYU honor code lifestyle. I can’t believe he was even cast as a potential. Rumor has it…he cheated on his first wife and he wanted Emily to be the Bachelorette because she looks just like his ex-wife. Just think Ladies, you could be stuck living in Utah dating douche bags like Bentley who think they are Brad F’ing Pitt. He’s an idiot!

    Love the blog and would love to blog for you. alas, i have no time.
    So, Ashley seems very peppy, love that she’s more alive, love the hair. I think that after 2 – 3 episodes people will start to see that guys are actually more attractive (or less, as the case may be). However, there is definitely a lack of Roberto’s this season.
    In no particular order and because i have not read all the way through spoilers, i’m going to start naming these guys as the actors they resemble.
    Ray Liotta godfather – did they really think it was that interesting to spend all that time showing a drunk guy? yawn.

    Heath Ledger – he’s back. and oh, so smiley-eyed – like.

    Adrien Brody – would have liked to see more of him. packed his meat bag and sent home. The only time we got to see him was his exit. – Bring back.

    Brandon Fraser – He’s the intellectual one. Does he speak French to her, or was that Mr. New Orleans? My guess is he lost his jacket before the introduction, or decided to go without, and somebody 2 sizes too small loaned him a horrible jacket. – Like

    Soap opera actor (name one) he’s the first impression rose guy.
    – Like.

    My votes are for Winery Ben – Really classy touch bringing the bottle of wine to toast. Who doesn’t love that? Really cute but needs something done with his hair. Maybe hairdresser guy can help.

    Nick from Florida – because he looks different from all the rest.

    Will “Wills” because he’s down to earth.

    I also find Constantine and Jeff “mask” intriguing. . .

    OMG! This season is soooo boring! The guys are awful and the plot lines are uneventful, so far…

    Thanks for the heads up that it’s JP who is the final guy! Love him and how he allowed he to just be mellow on their date. Great pick.

  21. Marielena

    I hope Ashley reads this: She is NOT less attractive than Emily. Certain men fixate on certain types. Ashley could be Marilyn Monroe or Angelina Jolie, and if she wasn’t the type a certain man was looking for, she would leave him cold. Ashley has a gorgeous figure, and is graceful and vivacious. Many, many men would be thrilled to be able to date her!

    Bentley, on the other hand, is a sociopath — no question about it. Sociopaths can fool ANYONE — just read how Ann Rule (an experienced crime writer) was fooled by Ted Bundy. Or think about how Scott Peterson, who later murdered his pregnant wife, struck everyone as being so charming and romantic. What women (and men) need to learn is that any person who is incredibly charming, and always seems to know exactly what to say to please you, and never seems to have an awkward or clumsy moment, is probably hiding something. Be VERY VERY careful!

    I didn’t think last night was boring, it was actually refreshing to see some real conversation. And oh my gosh, i loved Ames corniness. Take some pointers from him Steve, it works!

  23. smithduke

    June 22, 2011 at 11:10 PM

    I didn’t see Ames’ boner so how did you? I even slowed down my TIVO to see if I could find his boner!!! Damn! As a women, I like to check that kind of thing out but I’m a little worried about you…being a man and all…lol

    My friends and I have made “Bachelorette Ashley” season into a drinking game. Every time she says “Bentley” we have to drink a shot. We’ve been getting REALLY drunk! 🙂 She is such and idiot and I bet the show is really sorry they picked HER to be their bachelorette….although it has made for interesting TV.

  25. trainwreckfan

    June 24, 2011 at 4:01 PM

    I’d love to be a fly on the wall as Ashley is watching the show play back and hears all the stuff her “love” Bentley, said about her!! I bet she feels even worse about herself! Can’t wait for the reunion show!! Its gonna be awesome. I hope Bentley shows up for it!

  26. ravenhenry

    June 28, 2011 at 1:59 AM

    awwww, I like JP, I think he is a good fit for Ashley, and she seems to be into him throughout what i’ve seen so far. Thank you Reality Steve, you are the best ever for giving us the information. I don’t even let it bother me watching something I know is comming, I just enjoy watching the guys act all macho on bachelorett, and the girls act all catty on the Bachelor. Cool news, much thanks and may you be well.

    ashley makes me want to throw a brick thru my tv…isn’t there some kind of psych test the show should give ..she is a mess and as dumb as a plank…if she says ..moving foraard..spelt like she says it…if the guys had any brains they all would have walked out by now…she may be becoming a dentist…but she has no common sense and is wound so tightly that she would drive a dead man crazy
    great job steve…
    without the travel log..the show would be so boring..
    the show has no one but themselves to blame…she was a neurotic mess last season..get rid of these second chances..the show needs new blood…

  28. territ41159

    July 3, 2011 at 1:05 PM

    I agree with above post about bringing in new blood. I understand their reasoning but I think if they’ll invest in someone new they may even get new watchers.
