Bachelorette Ashley Recap: Episode 1

The recap will be up as soon as I figure out how to efficiently work with this face mask on.  I would hate for anyone at my noon meeting to judge me on my looks.

In the meantime, please feel free to weigh in your initial thoughts in the comment section.  Who did you think won the affection of Ashely?  The mama’s boy?  One of the three Josh Groban look-a-likes?  The confused thespian?  Or the handful of blonds with pretty teeth?  Be heard.

I loved William — the Josh Lucas (“Sweet Home Alabama”) meets Prince William guy. He’s very cute. I loved how there was drama before the guys ever showed up, and it looks like Bentley has a lot more drama up his sleeve.

Was it just me, or was it kind of slim pickings last night?

I couldn’t bring myself to watch last night. I just don’t like her…but I LOVE your blog so I’ll be sure to keep up that way.

(As for her dress, I read somewhere it was $26,000!! Yes, that’s not a typo).

I wasn’t going to watch. Really wasn’t. In fact, I missed much of the episode. But I do believe small town butcher from New Jersey’s exit made it all worth while.

He may have missed his calling. Sounded like Al Pacino in a bad mafia movie. Only he lacked the confidence that his unbuttoned shirt tried to scream.

Jennifer – William is my favorite so far too!

And yes, it was slim pickings! I don’t see myself having a couple of favorites like I have in other seasons!

I love Ryan 1st impression rose, William, Lucas, & a couple other guys who’s name I can’ remember lol

Ah, that’s it…Constantine = Josh Grobin. This was driving me crazy last night. As each guy stepped out of the limo, I thought to myself, “he looks like…?”
Ryan P. = Mathew Morrison, Glee & a little Ben McKenzie, O.C.
Nick = Not as hot Simon Baker
Ames = Ricky martin w/veneers
Blake = Ali’s Kirk
Mickey = Josh Radnor, How I met Your Mother
William = Yes Lincee, Josh Lucas for sure.
Stephen = Dead ringer my friend’s husband

I was convinced that I would not watch this season BUT NO, I fell into the trap…….I have to say though…what was the dancing in the beginning and the half shirt action? I had to look away and PLEASE – is it me or is her voice and laugh the most annoying EVER? I don’t know if I can watch it other than on mute….William and JP –cuties…

It really bugs me that Bentley is still around. If they did persuade her to keep him (which is totally believable), she should just take it easy, but it looks like she doesn’t! I like the same guys that everyone else has already mentioned: William, Ryan P, and Lucas. I’ll probably like someone else eventually once I remember who else is left.

@Robbie- Jon was a dead ringer for the British Bachelor Matt!

William is from where I live, Columbus Ohio! (Galloway is a suburb) I’m guessing he’s a Verizon rep. LOL But he’s a cutie!

What’s up with the Lone Stranger?

I’m going with JP too. Nice personality and smile. I also liked First Impression Rose guy, wine guy from Sonoma and the Prince William look-alike. (I’ll learn their names eventually).

Bentley = ego man. He is this season’s Wes and Justin Rego. Me no likey.

Mask Guy fighting with Passed Out Liquor & Spirits Guy reminded me a little of Clairol Craig and Weatherman’s tension from Ali’s season. I died laughing when the guys had to help load Passed Out Guy into the van. Loved the Phantom of the Opera music cues for Mask Guy! (and another balcony shot, but this time no crying!!)

As usual, I caved and got suckered into watching, as I do with every season since Jason’s season. And as usual, something idiotic happens and I can only wonder what Lincee will say about it!

I can’t wait for this recap!
I agree with those that noticed the slim pickings from last night. They are almost casting caricatures at this point. The butcher from New Jersey? The Mask Guy? Really? Hope that this season comes through with the drama like they are showing. Otherwise I will be falling asleep in my Chardonnay. Bentley–wonder if he’s as big of a jerk as they are leading us to believe?
Unlike others, I like Ashely. I like her high energy. Plus she’s intelligent and accomplished. And I LOVED her dress.
