Bachelorette Ashley Recap: Episode 5

Other than cheering for our pal Ames during his “fight” with annoying Ryan, shouting “GROBAN” every time a Groban was on the screen, counting off-the-shoulder tops and rolling my eyes when Ashley mentioned the guy who is landing WAY more than 15 minutes of post-Bachelorette fame, I have to say I was super bored with last night’s episode.

However, I persevered and by the power of a Dr Pepper at midnight and a few Swedish fish, I was able to come up with something for my fine friends over at AOL. Check out my top five list HERE and then head back for the full recap later this afternoon.

Let’s all say a quick prayer that I’ll be able to come up with something to entertain the masses.

AMEN!

I propose we refer to Bentley as “HWINWTM”…or…He Who Is Named Way Too Much. I also propose we petition ABC just to tell us who she picks and save us all the time.

Any seconds? ;o)

I have to say, watching the “fights” was great! And how the 2 one 1 date went. Didn’t see that coming with that date at all. Loved it!

Haven’t watched yet, so don’t have any current comments. This may be old news but I just read it….Cape Cod Chris is getting married to a former bachelore contestant, Peyton, from Andy Baldwin’s season.

The editing isn’t leaving much to the imagination. They showed Ashley burning the rose in the first five minutes of the episode. Once it a rose was given to Ben F., it was obvious she sent both 2-on-1ers home. Then, if we didn’t already figure it out that way, they showed a clip before a commercial of the cocktail party and both William and Ben C. were absent. I guess they don’t think the viewing audience pays much attention- or they just don’t care enough.

Poor Ashley. She must be so embarrassed watching this season. If I were her, I would be so confused by William. He is tough to figure out- he seems so interested in her one minute, then he really lets her have it at the roast, then he cries about it, then he seems to be scheming to get Ben C sent home, then he gives an almost suicidal limo ride home. Go figure.

I’m convinced after this episode that Ashley needs a guy like Bentley! Haven’t we all had that one guy in our life with whom the passion and the chemistry was smokin’ hot but who was really just a dog? THAT guy in ever girl’s life teaches us to appreciate the sweet, considerate men who come next.

Ashley’s so young-she’s obviously never been through the dirty dog guy stage, and it’s a shame she has to go through the humiliation on television. Especially since I want to jump through the TV and slap some sense into her!

OMG, every time she mentioned “The “B” word” I wanted to throw something at the television. For the love of everything holy girl, get over it!! I think the powers that be at ABC are enjoying making her look like a fool a little too much with her editing.

1. Boxing was stupid. Did Ryan really need to give Ames all those punches to the head? ! I wanted to scream, “Nooo! Not Ames’ precious brain!” when he said he had a concussion.
2. Winery Ben is dull. That date was boring.
3. I think Ashley dismissed Ben C. because they had no chemistry. She just needed a reason, which William supplied for her.
4. Here is an interview with Bentley’s ex wife. She is kind of vague, inarticulate and doesn’t reveal anything interesting.

Am I the only one who had to rewind the shot when Ames was getting carted off to the emergency room. I thought for sure you could see right up those pick boxing shorts. haha

I am going to date myself but remember when the song Roxanne/Police came out and us college kids made a drinking game about the song. Every time you heard Roxanne in the song you took a shot.

New game.. everytime you hear Bentley you take a shot. It will make getting through this season a little easier.

hahaha Kelly G! Love the shot’s idea, but you’d never get past the first set of commercials; you’d be wasted by then from the amount of times the name “Bentley” is used.

Okay, here’s my main thought from last night: I’m a girl, and I’ve never boxed in my life. Yet, even I know to keep your fists and arms UP and near the face when in a fight!! I mean, really Ames? Really? I just kept yelling at the TV “Put your gloves up! Put your gloves up! Block!”

This may be the worst season ever. I am absolutely dumbstruck with how insecure Ashley is and how she could have possibly fallen for such a tool in such a short amount of time. And the worst part is – if it weren’t for Bentley, there would be no drama whatsoever, and it would definitely be the most boring show on TV.

Whoever Ashley winds up with at the end will quickly dump her when they watch this season. No matter what happens next week with Bentley, the girl is insecure, obsessive, immature, and BLIND! The “winner” will always question her true feelings about him if he stays with her! Sounds to me like they are doomed! Can’t wait for the whine season to end!

OMG! Kelly G…I noticed the same thing with Ames’ shorts. Thank God one of the Grobans didn’t “raise him up” while he was laying down in the ambulance. Can you imagine? And then they make it worse by dressing Ames in pink. He seems like such a sweet guy. This season is truly pitiful…….

Is anyone else missing Jillian’s fashion sense? What is this girl wearing? Those mini skirts are driving me crazy!

I’m over thinking that Winery Ben looks like a Groban… he’s now starting to resemble the Geico Caveman.

Is it part of Ashley’s contract that she must mention Bentley’s name every 7 minutes?

Someone teach this girl some SELF ESTEEM!!!!!

Anyone else think Constantine looks like Judd Nelson – Breakfast Club days! I kept thinking he looks like someone…who is it…and then, it came to me. Agree???

I could throttle Ashley – she is ruining this show. Even OHCH could not set her straight – you could tell he wanted to slap her!

Well maybe with HWINWTM ( I like that!) coming back – some good drama will come back too – maybe some guys will leave her!

Try your best Lincee – anything you write will be much better than what we suffered thru last night!
