While in Hong Kong, host Chris Harrison revealed Bentley had returned and wanted to speak with Ashley. While Ashley had been hoping Bentley would return to stay and fight for her love, she got her heart broken a second time when Bentley revealed he was there to end their “relationship.”
The good news? Ashley was surprisingly strong and finally realized Bentley was a d-bag who never cared about her to begin with. “I cannot believe I wasted so much time on Bentley,” said Ashley after her meeting with Bentley. “He’s such a player. He disrespected me to the core and I don’t understand what I did to deserve this. Bentley, if you’re watching this, f–k you, I’m done with you.”
In her latest blog for PEOPLE, Ashley explains why she wasn’t able to see through Bentley’s BS earlier on. An excerpt is below –
“In last night’s episode, I hope you were finally able to see what Bentley was consistently doing in each conversation with me. His ego and competitiveness made him want to “get the girl,” but you know, as well as I do (now), that I was certainly not what he wanted.
But he continually fed me lines like, “I didn’t think I would miss you as much as I did,” and, “Come to Salt Lake City.” It was only at this meeting that I was able to clearly see the way he would try to smooth talk his way into my heart and then attempt to crush it on his way out. Looking back, one would think that I would be fearful that my judgment was not intact. However, I am more fearful of the fact that there are men out there so convincing of untruth.”
Ashley also adds that she’s happy to close the B chapter, for good this time. “You will never have to hear the B–– word again,” promises Ashley.
Meanwhile, Ashley decided to come clean to her guys last night causing one of the men, Ryan “Mickey” McLean, to throw a tantrum and leave the show. “You lied to us,” said an angry Ryan. “I just don’t see what the hell you saw in that guy. I thought we had a lot in common, but if that’s what you’re looking for, send me home. I’m just not interested.” Safe to assume Ryan probably wasn’t interested to begin with and was just looking for an excuse to exit the show.
