Ashleigh Hunt’s Bachelorette Blog: Episode 8

Hometowns! Yes, I am so excited. You can tell so much by meeting someone’s family. It can help answer a lot of questions and usually you walk away with clear decision about moving forward with the relationship.  Thinking back on some other hometown dates…do you remember when Ali met Kirk’s family and the taxidermy basement!? Or when that gorgeous girl, Naomi on Jason’s season took him home to meet her Mom and she was burying the dead bird in the backyard?

As for the comment last week that I am copying Natalie’s blog: I have never read her blog and everything I state here is as it comes to mind while watching the show.

Anyhow, Constantine has not been one of my favs this season so I am anxious to see this hometown and learn more about him and his family.

UGH! Shoot, I missed his hometown, my doggy needed to go out…and she took forever! Oh well. I do not think he is the one for Ashley but it looks like they had fun in the little recap I caught.

Okay on to Ames…whose mouth is weird. Whoa Ames’ sister looks like him with a blonde wig on. And orange is an awful color on Ashley. The sister is tooting her brother’s horn just a little too much; it’s freaking me out.  Why does she know he likes to plan sexy seductive dates for other women?

Maybe something is wrong with my TV but when Ames speaks it seems like there is a delay? Does he talk strange or what is going on here? It is distracting to look at his mouth.

A typical afternoon is frolicking in a garden with a picnic? Sorry, that’s not for me or anyone who has to make a living! Can we see pictures of Ames as a kid? I need to see how bad those teeth were to warrant big veneers. He still does not seem to be used to speaking with them.  Sorry, I will stop beating up on Ames. I know no one is perfect!

Are they strapped into that carriage? It looks a little shaky here and I am getting nervous for their safety.

Okay next up: Ben but I am dying to get to JP. I know they put his hometown last for a reason…to build up the suspense and it is working! I like the winery I am a huge vino drinker and would love a date like this despite the rain. It even makes it a little bit more romantic. This makes me think back to The Notebook when they passionately kiss in the rain. SO GREAT!

This story about his father is so sad but I am not getting a sincere vibe from Ashley while she is listening.  There is a lot of pressure on this hometown and I hope Ashley still remains true to herself and doesn’t get nervous when she is around his family.

I could never marry someone that my parents did not approve of either. When you are so close to your parents or siblings it really makes for an awkward stressful life when everyone can’t get along.

This dinner setting, the home, and the family all seem like they fell out of a Home Living magazine. I love it. They seem so perfect but that could all be a façade.

Ohhh Mama, did you hear her say “she had her power over him” when he was little.  You can tell she is very sensitive as to who will be with her son. She must approve and if she doesn’t….look out!

If Ben does not end up with Ashley I think he is a strong contender for the next Bachelor. He has a lot going for him, a little bit of a dark past, fashionable, romantic. Seeing him cry over his father is so humbling and we are seeing a more sensitive side to him, which I like. I loved when he would not let go of Ashley’s hand as she got into the car.  The boy is falling for her.

Okay on to JP! What happened with his past relationship that made his Mom so guarded? It is one thing for parents to be concerned but I hate it when they overstep and try to force their opinions on you.  Mistakes are meant to be made and if you date someone who is not a perfect match, that is okay. You will learn from it and know what you don’t want in a partner the next time around.

This is perfection; Ashley does not even care what they are doing as long as they are together.  They seem like the perfect match, and again are already acting like a couple who has been together forever.  I love it! Now let’s wait to see who falls down first! HAHA OMG this music…killing me, I am dying laughing. How cheesy and cute.

And it was JP to eat the floor first! How many times have they kissed already? The chemistry is insane. Send everyone else home! Side bar–Ashley’s hair looks so good like this; I hope she does it like this more.

Here we go with the ex, it seems like he got hurt really bad, and perhaps she cheated. I sense trust issues.

When you know, you know! JP is sure of his feelings for her and it shows, it also is helping them get closer to each other.

Why was there writing on Ashley’s socks? I hope those were her own clean ones and not some property of HotSkaters. J

I love Roslyn, NY, it is so gorgeous and a great town. Very wealthy too, I might add.

Is Ashley Jewish as well? This could also be another great sign they are good for each other.

No, no, Mom, JP is not sunburnt. The boy is blushing! How cute.  And yes he is totally falling in love with her, it might be hard to admit to his mom but he is! She seems blown away that her son might actually propose to Ashley at the end of this.

YES! I love the Bar Mitzvah picture! Look at this stud muffin at 13 posing like that.

Hot lady, Ash looks great for this rose ceremony! Love the make-up and solid black dress.

Yes, Ames would be the best husband….but for someone else.  I have a feeling Ames is going home tonight.  Definitely not Ben or JP…should be interesting.

Those blue background headshots that are in the frames never do anyone justice! I remember hating mine and burning that orange silk top once I got home.  The guys are not different; they are so much cuter in person. Maybe the show needs a new photographer. I have never met anyone from the show who actually loved this picture of themselves and it ends of being used on EVERYTHING (i.e. this blog I am writing).

I do have to say this season has the best-dressed bachelors I think I have ever seen. Very nice for a change!  But Ben, what is with the sloppy tie buddy? Not doing it for me with that one.  PS–I think I can finally tell Ben and Constantine apart, I know, it took me long enough!

IS Ames using a self tanner face cream? He looks lightly orange tonight.

AND I called it; I knew Ames was going home tonight. Sorry, the chemistry just was not there and he should have known that as well. All the best to him, I heard he’s on Bachelor Pad so get excited for that if you are an Ames fan.

Very awkward goodbye, they basically did a handshake and called it a day.

Next up: FUJI! Ugh, again, I am so jealous. I would give anything to go there. But OMG what goes wrong? I hope it’s nothing bad with JP!  Ashley looks stunning at the final rose ceremony preview.  I will need to know who designed that dress as well and get it!

I will be back next week! Thanks for reading, XOXO-Ash

  2. Ok, I typically love reading Bachelorette blogs, I’m not gonna lie. But honestly this one just sounds like random comments from a former middle-school bully. With so many great women out there who were previously part of the Bachelor/Bachelorette show, this is what you subject us to? Ames is a great guy, as many viewers would agree, and your shallow comments just sound like a desperate attempt to keep readers interested. Either way, never going to read this blog again. And Fuji? Really? It’s Fiji.

  3. I for one loved this blog. Ashleigh has a great sense of humour and I enjoyed watching her on Jake’s season. I agree with her that I find Ames teeth distracting. In no way did she come down on him for his personality. Lots of people make fun of this show all the time and its contestants. As for the one TINY spelling error that occurred if you look at the keyboard the U and I are right beside each other so it’s an easy mistake to make. You know for someone who is slamming her for negativity YOU certainly didn’t have any problem jumping up onto your high horse to rip her blog appart.

    Keep up the great work and don’t let the negative comments get you down! I like how you wrote this one as you were watching the show. It adds an interesting perspective. :)

  4. I agree with previous comment, I didn’t even finish reading this blog either. Very shallow and not very well written. I adore Ames for his intelligence and class, and his appearance doesn’t deserves to be trashed like that. And, oh yeah, maybe get your locations straight, Fuji is a mountain in Japan.

  5. Ashleigh makes me want to pull my hair out. She cannot connect two thoughts together to save her life and quite honestly, this is the most shallow blog I have ever read. Ashleigh, just because you were a former contestant, doesn’t give you the right to bash others. I think we all know that you’re not perfect either…(as I’m sure your plastic surgeon can tell us)

    ABC, please do not subject us to Ashleigh’s shallow and boring commentary any longer…you’re better than that.

  6. Ashleigh makes me want to pull my hair out. Her comments are so shallow and she cannot connect two thoughts together to save her life. And I agree with Kylie, lay off of Ames-you are definitely not perfect either-we can just ask your plastic surgeon…

    Ashleigh comes across on this blog as a ditz and a gold digger. ABC, please do not subject us to this nonsense anymore, you’re better than that.

    Comment by Jenny — July 21, 2011 @ 8:57 pm

  7. I must agree with the comment above. I read up until Ames date finished, but couldn’t go any further. Maybe the rest was good…but this girl is a negative nancy. Who cares about if a particular date is not for you. Orange is a terrible color on Ashley, and Ames teeth and mouth are weird? I’m all for others opinions, but these are a bit too harsh.

    Adios Ms.Hunt!

  8. This is the most shallow of the blogs. I will not read again. This appears to be a desperate attempt for this person to stay in the public. Please ABC do not subject fans of the show to this shallow blog again. It is also very poorly written

    Comment by Lilly — July 21, 2011 @ 11:29 pm

  9. I hope this person is not paid for this blog. It is awful! Very poorly written and difficult to really like two thoughts together. It is also really negative and very mean-spirited. This comes across as very shallow.

    Comment by Susan — July 21, 2011 @ 11:42 pm

  10. For all of you calling her shallow and criticizing her and her “surgeries” you’re assuming she has had you are the ones being shallow and mean. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    Ash loved you on Jake’s season. Hilarious and beautiful. Do not pay attention to these losers. :)

  11. I LOVE the bachelorette and I LOVE ashleigh’s blog. I think you hit the nail on the head and JP is the clear winner. I want to know what happened in his last relationship too! Maybe he will open up next episode??

    For everyone who is hating this is a blog with HER opinions, if you don’t like it you dont have to read it or take the time out of your day to comment. Kind of hypocritcal to be “upset” at her for bashing people and then bash her???

    Comment by Alyssa — July 22, 2011 @ 1:56 am

  12. Spelling errors galore, poor grammar — I realize this woman is not writing a thesis paper here, but what about a simple spell check? How about reading through before hitting ‘publish’ or, at the very least, having someone edit this hot mess?

    Everyone is NOT cut out for blogging and just because you were on a reality television show doesn’t make you an instant celebrity. In fact, go back to your day job — whatever that is. This is a catty write up by a woman who didn’t make it on the show. Fairly sure Ames would be polite to her but he would have a stomach ache listening to her senseless babble.

    Get a starring role in the next “Mean Girls” – at least you won’t have to spell.

    Comment by Rae — July 22, 2011 @ 2:29 am

  13. Fuji? oh dear — get this woman and editor. Actually, stop her from writing! Mean Girls Part 3.

    Comment by Rae — July 22, 2011 @ 3:16 am

  14. wow people are soo mean to you…this is just a regular woman’s thoughts as she watches a show. She’s not trying to be so cool and above us all. It’s an opinion so shush.

    Comment by Alice — July 22, 2011 @ 4:04 am

  15. It’s Fuji FILM, or cameras, you idiot.

    Worst. Recap. Ever. Were you drunk when you “wrote” this?

    Your doggy needed to go out? That’s not cute and NOT funny. What was the POINT of writing this when you didn’t even see one of the segments???

    Comment by Cookie — July 22, 2011 @ 7:38 am

  16. this dumb blog looks like it was written WHILE she was watching the show, not AFTER the show It should be written after so she could formulate some thoughts and perspectives (if she has any). Really? she can DVR or something so she doesn’t have to incorporate the dog peeing into the blog! Made the blog about herself.

    Comment by Mary Jo — July 22, 2011 @ 12:12 pm

  17. EVERYONE who commented these ugly things should be ashamed of themselves. Calling ashleigh a mean girl?? What does that make you?? This is her blog, if you don’t like it you should probably read a recap somewhere else.

    I loved it Ashleigh! I think you are doing a great job, keep up the good work

    Comment by Mary — July 22, 2011 @ 8:07 pm

  18. I thought your blog was a riot.

    I saw Craig R. from Ali’s season today in Philly.

    Comment by Mel L — July 22, 2011 @ 8:44 pm

  19. Did this person ever attend any sort of formal learning institution (aka school)?

    Comment by Eliza — July 22, 2011 @ 10:55 pm

  20. You are all hypocrites. You are being just as mean as you think Ash was. She is funny. You need to stop being so uptight and take a joke. If you don’t like what she has to say then don’t read her blog. There are some people who like it and her.

    All of you jerks ganging up on her should be the ones on Mean Girls.. not her.

    Ash do not stop writing, some of us really like your blog and really like you (:
    Gorgeous and funny!

    Comment by Steph — July 23, 2011 @ 2:04 am

  21. I agree with the haters. I did not enjoy watching Ashleigh on Jake’s season; I thought she was fake. She trashed Vienna when she got kicked to the curb by Jake, and then showed up at Vienna’s Single Party in Vegas. Instantly clung onto Vienna when she saw that would put her in the public eye.
    She is from my hometown, DC, and I wrote to her on Facebook telling her that and asked a question about about being on the bachelor and she ignored me.
    she’s a fame whore and not even attractive.
    p.s. I love Ames

    Comment by lt — July 23, 2011 @ 6:05 pm

  22. Ashleigh is a fame whore-know her personally and all she wants is to be famous and not in the right way. I think one of the previous guys said it best when they had a reunion and she stuck her tongue down his throat-Ashleigh should be on the Bachelor Pad because she hooks up with everyone.

    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer either…

    Comment by Jena — July 26, 2011 @ 12:07 am

  23. wow that is so cool that you found a amazion man and you are so hot

    Comment by john klinglehutz — August 2, 2011 @ 1:01 am

  24. You have got to be the biggest idiot. Wow- you really have a lot of nerve to make fun of someone else’s appearance. Do you happen to have a mirror? Despite the bashing, this blog was poorly written and 100% boring. I read 1/4 of it and it put me right to sleep.

    Comment by Kari — August 2, 2011 @ 5:25 pm

  25. I just couldn’t make it to the end of this blog. How superficial. Can we get blog writers that actually have interesting things to say?

    Comment by Say — August 2, 2011 @ 5:56 pm

  26. Hello people my name is rose this is my testimonine I had already tried three different internet spell caster’s services, but all the guys I met were jerks and scams. Then my friend told me about CHIFE OGWA spells. I wasn’t sure anything would come of it, but I thought, why not take a chance? I cast a Love Spell, and the very next week a gorgeous guy came up to me at a club and asked me to dance. He is caring, kind, romantic – everything I always wanted. We’ve been together for six months, and we’re talking about getting married. I’m a believer!” If you requires any assistance, you can contact him through chifeogwa@yahoo.com
