This season of The Bachelorette is full of tears — so many tears — but now that Bentleygate is officially behind her, Ashley is ready to move forward in her six remaining relationships. Who will she end up with? Vote in the poll below. We’ve included “no one” as an option, because after that promo showed her sobbing at the Bachelorette finale altar, who really knows what will happen? (That said, J.P. is Jimmy Kimmel’s pick.)

This episode had a lot of highs and many lows for Ashley. You’ve all had very strong opinions about Bentley this season, both good and bad. I want to deal with all this episode had to offer, but first I want to give you some updates on things we have coming up in the very near future for you. First of all, we have wrapped the first part of production on Bachelor Pad 2. It is incredible and will far surpass anything we came close to producing last summer. From start to finish this show will entertain like never before. We will also be bringing you what we’re calling “Bachelor Updates” on our most popular couples. The first you will see on Monday, July 11th. I sit down and talk to Emily who is speaking publicly for the first time about her relationship with Brad. I know all of you have had tons of questions about Brad and Emily, and their silence has only added fuel to the tabloid fire. Emily and Brad wanted to remain silent until the time was right for them to speak. That time is now, and you will see and hear all next Monday night. READ FULL STORY
Well, that was interesting — wouldn’t you say, rose lovers? If you haven’t seen tonight’s epic Bentley vs. Ashley showdown in Hong Kong, then stop reading now and come back later tonight for my full TV recap. (UPDATE: Click the links to read Kristen’s Bachelorette episode 6 recap and Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes Bachelorette blog.) But if you just finished watching tonight’s episode and are still reeling from the action-packed drama-thon, I want to hear from you. Is it me, or was Bentley an even bigger d-bag tonight than before? (I didn’t think it was possible.) How happy/shocked were you when Ashley finally realized that she’d been played and let Mr. Family Fun Center have it? And was that quite possibly the most dramatic cocktail party… ever??? Post your comments below!
I know this week Bentley’s imminent return will dominate the discussion, and I have some interesting takes on what is happening and what is about to happen next week in Hong Kong — but first let’s talk about this week. We have been to some exotic locations over the last decade, but the city of Chiang Mai in Thailand might just take the cake. The city has so much to offer but the property we stayed at, the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, took it to a whole other level. This resort that sits on over sixty acres and includes two working rice paddies in the middle of it. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. You know a resort is big when you can check out mountain bikes just to get around. The guys arrived in old school limos straight out of a James Bond film. The only difference is these limos were not just old school they were old. It was a really hot day and the limos that had A/C weren’t working that well. Let’s just say the guys were more than happy to get out and get to their villa. Speaking of their villa, it was insane. The men stayed in a three story presidential villa complete with a grand piano and incredibly valuable art that the guys were scared to death of breaking. READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert! Read no further if you haven’t seen tonight’s episode. Okay, here goes: What’s that, Team Bachelorette? You know that you totally made it seem like Bentley was coming back to give Ashley some closure this week, but in fact you were just kidding and he’s not coming back until next week? So… you thought we’d find that little bait-and-switch funny? Oh, I see. Well, I’ve gotta say, it really wasn’t that funny. In fact, it was pretty damn annoying. Would you agree, rose lovers? I guess it’s hard to stay too mad, seeing as tonight’s episode did feature a guy in hot pink boxing shorts getting his “bell rung” so hard he needed a trip to a Thai hospital. Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Kristen’s Bachelorette episode 5 recap is now live, as is Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelorette blog), but if you’ve seen tonight’s episode let me know what you thought in the comments below. Were you surprised by the Bentley fake out? Who looked hottest on the boxing date? And could Ben F. be stealing front-runner status from JP? Take the gloves off and start posting!
While I’m sitting here writing this blog all I really want to know is what all of you think of what went down this week and how it all happened. I’ve been asked several times this week if I think Bentley is the biggest “villain” we’ve ever had on this show. My first thought is that’s really something for you guys to judge, not me. My second thought is the “villain” title really doesn’t do justice to what went down here. It softens the blow and simplifies things too much in my opinion, but again that’s really up to you guys. There’s a lot more I will say about Bentley but I do want to talk about several other things, as this was an eye-opening episode from top to bottom. READ FULL STORY
