Bentley Comes Back, Ashley Still Doesn't Get It.
The sad part here though is that she has over a half dozen other guys who are chasing after her. It's really getting depressing now.
We haven't seen the last of Bentley Williams, d-bag extraordinaire, oh no.
He comes back, but only because Ashley had producers of the show call him every day for two weeks trying to get him to come back.
Wow. Where was the best friend who rips the phone from her hand? Bad, bad idea. Big mistake. Bentley does end up coming back, host Chris Harrison confirms, but only because, "Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her," a Bachelorette insider tells Life & Style. "She couldn’t stop thinking about him after he left her."
So sad to see people trying to change their love life, and then consistently falling for the guy who doesn't want them. Again.
Surprise to no one, he rejects her again when he gets back. A friend states he didn’t have a change of heart and only wanted a free vacation. "He's never been to Hong Kong," the friend notes. Ouch.
Some have been asking, why wouldn't the show step in, and help Ashley? First of all, it was two weeks in. Who has ever fallen as desperately, cling-ily in love in two weeks with one guy out of 15? Ashley of course. They thought she would a) heed the warning she was given at the beginning of the show or b) figure it out, because not that hard. Just look at him. He's a dbag.
"If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, that’s beyond a red flag. We gave her the option and said, 'You don't have to meet this guy. We can pull him.' We justify everything by giving Ashley the power. It was her job to say no," said Chris to People. "We don't step in and say, 'That's the wrong decision.' We never do. She was privy to some of the information. I had many conversations with her about this and so did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs."
Even he is calling her a dumbass. And he's had like 12 seasons of dumbasses.
