-Group date in Vegas is up next as 12 of the guys are headed to the Jabbawockeez show at the Monte Carlo. Ashley walks them in to the theater then sneaks away so she can throw on a mask and come up through the stage. The twelve clueless guys never saw her leave and are fascinated watching her come up through the stage like Rey Mysterio (Sorry, had to get a WWE reference in. RIP Macho Man). The teams are split up into two teams of six:
“No Rhythm Nation”
Ok, before this competition to see who had the better routine even started, if you didn’t know who was gonna win this thing beforehand, you don’t pay attention. No, not just because of the spoilers and all three guys that got eliminated last night were on “Best Men”, but they showed in the previews last week, online, and before this episode started Ashley having along time with Bentley. If I were voting, neither team would’ve won. That was horrible. They were judged on “style, synchronicity, and showmanship.” Hmmmm. Could’ve fooled me. I could’ve sworn they were being judged on un-coordination, lack of skills, and overall suckiness.
-So the “No Rhythm Nation” gets to perform in the live show later that night with Ashley. Now, I know a lot of you hate Ashley as the “Bachelorette” for whatever reason, but excuse me, that was hot last night. I think West was the one that said it, and he was right. There is definitely something sexy about a woman that can dance. Now, we saw Ashley last season in her hometown video dancing half naked in her room, then we saw her prancing around stage last week, but that was more classical dance. Last night, she got her freak on and I got excited. So much so that…forget it. I just hope that before the audience entered the theater last night they were specifically informed that a portion of the show will not be done by professionals and will suck donkeys. So if you were in the audience that night, and you weren’t told this beforehand, you should call the Monte Carlo right now and ask for your money back. Tell em’ Reality Steve sent ya’. I’m sure they’ll definitely be happy to refund you.
-Ben F agrees with me. “Ashleys body is incredibly tight.” Well, we know where his head is at. Same place mine is. Ashley looked like she should be headlining that show. Or “PeepShow”. Sure, she can fill in for Holly Madison. I’ll watch it. Ashley: “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.” I bet you do. Who else wouldn’t want to upstage six horrible dancers at the Monte Carlo. It’s your time to shine girl. Go on wit yo’ bad self. We can now add “I feel like the luckiest guy/girl in the world” to our list of “Phrases You Will Hear Every Season On This Show”. Everyone is the “luckiest”, every date is the “greatest date ever”, etc. The hyperbole on this show runs rampant. How about we just a, “Eh, that was ok. Would’ve rather done something else for our date, but it was fine.” God forbid they actually go off script and say something they’re not supposed to.
-At the cocktail party, even though there were six guys there that she got alone time with, they only showed three of them: Blake, West, and Bentley. Blake the dentist was who they showed first, and they focused on whether or not both of them being dentists and Type A personalities, would be a good thing or a bad thing. Ashley eases his mind by saying, “Means it’ll just be twice as perfect.” Awwwwwww, how puke inducing. So there’s always the “opposites attract” saying, and then there are those who say you should be with someone who shares your exact interests. I’m in neither of those camps. What I do say though is that if both of you have the exact same profession, that’ll suck. And dentists? Ugh. How boring an uninteresting are those dinner conversations gonna be like? “Yeah, had a couple root canals today. You?” “I had a homeless guy with 16 teeth come in. It was awful.” Riveting stuff, I tell ya’. I don’t know Ashley from a hole in the wall, but I bet being with a dentist was not something she was ever looking for.
-Next up is West who tells her the story of his ex-wife Sarah who died 9 months after getting married. West tells Ashley “I’m finally ready to put myself out there and fall in love again”. Well, personally I wouldn’t have done this show if I were you West, but who am I to judge? You’ve already been taken to the cleaners by your ex in laws, and the court of public opinion seems to think you murdered your wife. Probably wasn’t your best bet to go on this show. I’m all for the guy getting back on his feet and dating after such a tragic event, but on national television watched by millions crazed housewives across the country? You make your own bed, now you must lie in it. Just like William, and any other guy who’s ever appeared on this show, West won’t have any problem finding a girl once the show is over. It’s the reason guys even go on this show. Just show up, and immediately women will start adding you on Facebook, following you on Twitter, and basically you have your pick of the litter. I really wish I could share some of the stories with you, but I can’t. Just trust me on this one.
-Ahhhh, now we get to Bentley. She takes him up to one of the rooms, and as we see them walking down the hallway, we get an ITM of Bentley saying, “She’s a beautiful girl, she has a great body, amazing butt, rockin legs, and having her tickle my p****, I mean, that’d be amazing.” Lets clear a couple things up here. First off, we have NO IDEA if Bentley is even talking about Ashley in that ITM. He never specifically says her name, and that ITM could’ve been done at a completely different time where he was asked a completely different question. He probably was, but we don’t know for sure. They could’ve asked him, “Hey, what do you think of Megan Fox?” and just given you his answer. That’s how this show works. Secondly, if you watch it back, the word they bleeped out wasn’t “penis”. It wasn’t even “pickle”. It was “peter”. By no means am I sticking up for Bentley at all, but here’s something I want to inform everyone of regarding him. Bentley is STRICT Mormon. That means no sex before marriage, never had a sip of alcohol in his life, never said the “f” word, etc. I’ve heard this from more than a few people who know him. Here’s a couple examples I can give you. These are shots from the end of each of the first two episodes where the guys toast Ashley:
Not only does Bentley not drink, he’s not even allowed to be on camera with a glass of alcohol in his hand. I mean, sure he could do it, but the church wouldn’t be too thrilled with that. So as you can see in the pictures, he’s the only guy with water in his glass.
-Now, I’m sure the church isn’t thrilled with him acting like a complete douche on TV and insulting Ashley the whole time, and I honestly don’t know his reasoning behind it other than enjoying the role of playing the villain, but people need to stop getting so carried away by him. He’s a gimmick. He’s purposely on the show to get you to do exactly what you are doing, and that’s running to your friends Tuesday morning, or running to your Twitter, or running to your Facebook page to talk about what a jerk he is. The more you talk about Bentley, the more this show is “winning”, to steal the most overused phrase going right now. They are milking Bentley for every single ounce of publicity they can, and everyone is buying into it. Aren’t you seeing the whole irony behind Bentley being cast?
-This show is supposed to find love for Ashley, and are supposed to cast guys that are wanting to be there for her and hopefully to fall in love, right? That’s the premise of the show. Sure, we know not every guy is REALLY there for that, but just the idea behind it is supposed to be legit. Well, they’ve known since the minute that Bentley stepped foot on the show, and hell probably even back to when they did his hometown video and the guy was talking about Emily, they knew he wasn’t into Ashley. He knew it and they knew it, yet they still cast him. It’s the shows fault, and Bentleys fault. Lets say Bentley truly and honestly didn’t know that Ashley was the “Bachelorette” and the show lied to him the whole time telling him it was Emily (Remember, they started filming the night after Brad’s finale aired, so the latest he would’ve known for sure it was Ashley was the night before). So lets say he didn’t watch “Jimmy Kimmel” the night before, and had no clue it was Ashley until he stepped out of the limo. Then why not just eliminate himself on the first night? Simple question that Chris Harrison, Mike Fleiss, ABC, Next Entertainment, and Warner Horizon will never answer: If Bentley never liked Ashley, why was he cast? They knew what they were doing the whole time because they know what the guy was saying about her in his ITM’s.
-So Bentley is a douche for just going along and doing what he’s doing, which is making a mockery of their show. And ABC is just as bad because they knowingly cast him because they were aware he’d be the most talked about guy for the first few episodes, and then again in episode six when he returns. The more you talk about how much you hate Bentley, the more this show is winning. I’m just enjoying Bentley for what he is at this point, and that’s pure entertainment. But people who get so worked up over him and what he’s saying don’t realize how stupid they sound. It’s a TV show. He’s playing a role. Sure, he’s being mean to Ashley, but he hasn’t said a word of it to her face. It’s behind her back and she’s obviously seeing it now for the first time. I’m sure she’s a little bothered by him, but what does she care at this point? She got a paycheck to do the show, she’s with someone now, and she gets to make the rounds on the talk shows and in magazines for the next two months. I will NEVER understand the people who get so worked up by something said or done on this show. Ever. That’s why I just sit back and make fun of it all. It’s laughable.
-With all that said, how bad does it look to watch Ashley in the room with him BEGGING him to stick around? “If you feel something for me, please stay. Please stick around. Please, please, please, please stay.” You gotta remember though, Ashley is clueless Bentley is saying all this stuff about her at the time of filming. All she knows is how he’s acting in front of her, and so far, he hasn’t said a word to her face about not wanting to be there. So you can’t fault her in this situation for giving him a rose and keeping him around. But for the show to sit back and say, “Oh well, this is Ashleys journey. She needs to figure this out for herself that Bentley is a jerk”, that’s just a stupid argument. It’s your show. You’re the one that cast him and you know he went on there to play a role. Don’t pin it on her that she’s supposed to figure it out for herself when he shouldn’t have even been on the show in the first place. So stupid.
