Will Ben F or JP make it to the rose ceremony with Ashley H?
Okay, so we all hate Bentley and are secretly praying that Ashley Hebert wised up about the skeezy player long before she made it seem on the revealed video clips and television series The Bachelorette 2011. But with the clear loser eliminated from the competition, which of the remaining bachelors are the crowd favorites? So far to date, Ashley H got rid of a few okay guys and a bunch of losers.
The boy we all root for is Ames, the Brendan Frasier celebrity look-alike who works as a financial advisor. He is sweet, likely rich, and seems madly in love with Ash, but there is little to no hope that he is going to survive to the rose ceremony. He’s actually lucky to still be alive after the shot to the head he took from Ryan the solar guy when the two engaged in a Thia kickboxing fight on their trip to Thailand.
So Ryan… he is a standout. He has a big smile and seems genuinely into Ashley. Here at GCN he is the fav because he runs a solar energy company and is totally eco-friendly. He’s sharp, entertaining, and witty. The problem is, every time he reaches out to touch her, Ashley recoils almost immediately. When he is talking to her, she leans back and away and looks down her nose at him when she is speaking. We like him because he really felt awful for beating up Ames and giving him a concussion. But we don’t need to like him — Ashley H does. And we are pretty sure that while she should, she doesn’t.
The meathead guys don’t seem to float her boat, either. If they drag their knuckles or don’t throw themselves at her feat, she wants nothing to do with them. Neurotic, emotional, and requiring 100% reassurance at all times that all the men be 100% into her without ever really spending time with her seems to be her thing.
To that end, any of the guys who have a backbone and say they want to spend more time before making a commitment seem to be o-u-t and that leaves the only two real men likely to make it through to the final rose ceremony… barring any unexpected ridiculousness… wine maker Ben F and the “jew from Long Island who beat up the Irishman from Ohio” and littlest bachelor (short on stature but big on character) JP.
JP is like the Jack Russell Terrier of the bunch and absolutely darling. Ben F looks a bit like Shaggy from Scooby Doo — but without as much moxy or dapper dan in him to make him seem like he’s husband material as much as a friends with benefits sort of guy.
Between the two, one can fairly easily predict JP would be a really serious husband and father, while Ben F might take the long route to commitment, preferring to travel and drink wine around the world for a while. That’s where Ashley H has to decide what she wants — immediate stability or a prolonged engagement.
Who do YOU think she will choose?
