The Bachelor(ette) franchises have brought us some major villains over the years – example Wes Hayden, Rozlyn Papa, and Michelle Money – but it seems this season’s Bentley Williams without a doubt takes the cake.
On last night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Bentley showed no mercy in repeatedly bashing the poor Ashley Hebert behind her back. Oddly enough, Ashley revealed on the show’s season premiere that a former cast member had warned her Bentley was only there for the cameras, but of course she still decided to give him a shot.
Bentley, a 28-year-old single dad, started the nastiness last week when he revealed he had hoped Emily Maynard would be the Bachelorette. He then added that Ashley wasn’t his type. I’m sure Emily’s flattered.
And last night in Las Vegas, he had more ugly comments about Ashley. “She has a great body, amazing butt, rocking legs,” said Bentley. “The competition makes it exciting… and that’s the extent in terms of my interest. You know, I mean, she’s just not my type.” We heard you the first time jerk-off.
It got even worse as Bentley then decided to play mind games with Ashley during their one on one time, threatening to leave the show to go be with his daughter. Ashley unfortunately begged him to stay. “If you feel something for me, please stay, because I feel something for you,” begged Ashley. “If you feel something for me, please, please, please stick around. Please, please, please.”
Bentley had some more choice words after getting a rose on his group date. “It comes down to the fact that I get competitive about every thing,” he said. “I’d rather be swimming in pee than planning a wedding with her.” Wowzers.
This morning, poor Ashley is now speaking out on Bentley’s words and actions. Below is the excerpt from Ashley’s latest blog with PEOPLE -
“In closing, I want to say that I learn so much about these men from watching the episodes – the good, the bad and the ugly. The most important thing I told myself from the start was that I would always be open with the way I feel, even if there was the potential to be hurt. I said that I wouldn’t want to look back with regrets. Even as I cringe through some of the things that Bentley said throughout filming, I wouldn’t change the way I was, because in that moment it was the way I felt. Everyone is responsible for their own honesty and accountability – and if he wasn’t willing to give me at least that, he is in the wrong. No regrets!”
And it seems next week, we will get more ugliness from Bentley. Here’s to hoping Ashley sees the light sooner than later.
