Ashley Spivey’s Blog: Episode 6

Before I begin this week’s post, I just wanted to say a little something about last week’s skinny dipping incident.  Truth be told, I don’t have a problem with skinny dipping.  I’m not at all a prude and in fact, I don’t trust most people that won’t change their clothes in front of me.  Here’s the problem I have with Ben and Courtney skinny dipping.  For one, I would NEVER do that on national television.  Two, I think it’s extremely disrespectful to the other girls and here’s why: at this point everyone should be on a level playing field.  Yes, I know it’s weird that he’s dating multiple girls and I know that one day he will possibly hook up with three of them when the fantasy dates come around.  But if any of those girls found out at that point that Ben had skinny dipped with Courtney, I guarantee you that they would have walked out.  I’m sure that they wouldn’t have held Ben in the high-regard that a lot of them seem to hold him to and they should have been given the respect of full-disclosure. Ok, my rant is finished.

This week, Ben, the devil and the rest of the ladies headed to Panama!

Blakeley really wanted a 1-on-1 date and was uber-jealous after Kacie B. got her second 1-on-1!

I think Courtney is a little more worried about Kacie than she’d like to admit.

Ben and Kacie have their date on a deserted island where both of them bring 3 items to ensure their survival.  Kacie brings candy and Ben is the happiest I’ve ever seen him during this season.

Ben brings items that will actually help them survive.  Kacie brings a stuffed monkey, a Swiss-army knife, and candy.  I really like Kacie.

I suspect that Ben hasn’t used a machete very often in his life.

He sure does love that coconut water.

The group date card arrives and Blakeley and Rachel are not listed.  They will be going on the dreaded 2-on-1 but Blakeley is pumped – bless her heart.

At dinner, Kacie tells Ben a powerful story from her past.  For a year she struggled with an eating disorder but it has made her a stronger person.  Ben looked like this picture for a majority of the conversation.

But then I think he got drunk and started smiling and acting more interested.  He says that he “likes” Kacie a lot.  I’m afraid that Kacie is getting designated to the little sister/good friend category.  It seems like she is opening up to him and starting to have evolving feelings but Ben seems to feel the same way he did on their first date.

I also noticed during this date that he plays with his hair A LOT!

You know who else plays with their hair a lot?  Courtney!

At the end of the date, Ben finally shows some aggressive behavior towards Kacie but she only gets the hand on the face.  I wonder if Kacie was worrying at this point that Ben didn’t know how to French kiss?

On the group date Ben shows up in a long boat to take the girls to their destination and I swear to God this was Courtney’s face when he pulled up!

I wonder if the girls are ever upset that they didn’t get the extreme fantasy dates that most girls got in previous seasons?  Don’t get me wrong, I love that they are doing more casual, everyday stuff!

Just kidding!  The villagers loved them and everyone had a dance party in traditional clothing!

Courtney decided that she would go topless under the beaded tops just like the locals.  When in Rome right?  Lindzi and Emily’s face during this season was hilarious.  They could not stop staring at her boobies.

Ben was pretty brave and decided to wear a loincloth.

He was also very happy that he got to see Courtney’s boobies again.  In the words of the Millionaire Matchmaker, he sure does “let the penis do the picking.”

The over-enthusiasm is killing me y’all.

No y’all. I’m serious.  WHAT IS THAT? HAHA!

After dancing with the locals, Ben has a conversation with Lindzi in which she really opens up with him.  He responds by giving her a big ol’ open mouth kiss.

Jamie is frustrated that she hasn’t progressed more in her relationship with Ben.  She makes a point that Courtney must be doing something right.

Courtney tries to distract Ben while he is talking to Jamie and ruins their alone time.  Jamie decides not to kiss Ben while he is so obviously fighting his urge to stare at Courtney.

Emily gets Ben good by making him think that there was another man in her life but she was really just talking about her dog.  I really like Emily!  However, I really don’t like that she had to apologize to him for keeping his best interests in mind.

Ben really likes when girls do what he tells them to do so he decides to reward Emily with some tongue!

Emily tries to be the better person and apologize to Courtney by telling her that she was wrong for judging her.

Courtney doesn’t accept the apology and says it doesn’t matter because she would never be a friend with her in real life.  Karma later bites her in the butt when Ben doesn’t show up for their secret rendezvous. Lindzi gets the group date rose.

It’s time for the 2-on-1 and Ben takes the girls for salsa lessons.  Bless Blakeley’s heart because they give her a god-awful dress.  Ben will obviously be basing his decision on who looks less crazy.

I really respect Rachel for giving it her all on this date.  She was terrified at first but she really tried!  I can totally relate because on Ashley H. and I’s date, we had to learn a dance routine and I was instantly frustrated because Ashley is a dancer.  She looked so graceful doing everything and I looked like a flailing monkey.  But seriously, props to Rachel for handling everything so well.

I’m also proud of Rachel for conquering her communication problems.  She tells Ben how much she really wants to be there and is flirting pretty heavily.

What I don’t understand about Blakeley is she is so confident around the girls and talks a big game, but she becomes a nervous mess around Ben.  She decides to reveal her feelings for him in a scrapbook she made for him.  I think she misspelled Flajnik the on the first spelling.

I think this is a really cute idea but I think it is too much, too late.  The expressions on Ben’s face say it all.

Ben ends up giving the rose to Rachel and Blakeley is so distraught that she runs out before Ben can explain.  He chases after her telling her to “slow down” and then they talk for a bit before exchanging the longest goodbye hug ever.  I think it’s a little weird that I never see tears come out of Blakeley’s eyes!

During her departure, the camera cuts to a stray cat walking down the alley.  Is Blakeley like a stray cat?  Is she lonely like the stray cat?  Are we supposed to feel more sorry for the cat or for Blakeley?  WTF?

Chris Harrison shows up before the cocktail party and informs the girls that he needs to have a discussion with Casey S.  It is so imperative that he doesn’t even allow her to get her shoes.

Chris confronts Casey about a possible boyfriend back home and Casey reveals that she is still in love with her ex-boyfriend.  If you know you are in love with someone else, YOU should not make it to episode 6.  At this point, she is just leading Ben along and wants to travel on the show’s dime.  Girls have serious feelings for him at this point and he has started to eliminate girls who have wanted to be there.  Jennifer should have been able to stay way longer than Casey S.  Ben decides that she should leave.

It was hard to understand everything she said because it was in such a high-pitched tone (mostly kidding) but I think she basically said that she came on the show because the person she loved didn’t want to marry her.  So does she just want someone to marry?  Did she just want to get the ex back?  Did she want to prove a point to the ex?

I’m sorry but the sound of this cry cracks me up every time.  I hope I’m not being too insensitive but I think her crying was more from a place of being embarrassed.  I’d cry too if Chris Harrison didn’t trust my reasons for being there.  Regardless, Casey S. is a beautiful girl and I’m sure if she’s not back with her boyfriend, she will have no trouble finding someone to marry her after the show.

At the cocktail party, Jamie decides that it’s time to get aggressive with Ben.  By using Courtney as her inspiration, Jamie gets all fancy (I die) all over Ben.  Can I just say how much I love the term fancy for this situation?  I can’t wait to incorporate it into my vocabulary!

She also tries to instruct Ben on how they should kiss.  It does not go well.  At all.  I actually covered my face with a blanket for most of this scene.  I was so embarrassed for her!

I think Jamie is adorable and she seems like such a good person.  Girl, this just wasn’t the guy for you!  She pretty much knows that she will be going home and she does. :(

I also noticed during the rose ceremony that the devil is wearing the same dress that I wore to Women Tell All but in white.  Thank god I donated that dress to charity last year. :) JK It’s a great dress but it feels weird knowing that the devil and I share some common fashion sense.

So what did y’all think of this week’s episode?  Are y’all scared for Kacie?  Were you surprised that Courtney went topless?  Did you feel bad for her when Ben didn’t show up?  Are you surprised that Jamie and Blakeley went home?  Will y’all be saying fancy now too?

  1. Love your blog. I find it interesting to read the exit interviews from the girls who have left the show. Not one of them has had a good thing to say about Courtney. Nothing that Courtney does surprises me anymore and I hope Ben wakes up from this stupor soon.

    I don’t have a problem with Casey S. for being there. She was no longer dating, and was trying to move on in her life. It may not have worked, but I bet most of the girls are on this show trying to move on from a previous relationship. I don’t think it was fair that the producers chose to believe her ex over her.

    Still patiently waiting for a love story, but have seen no indications of one yet!

    Comment by Jacquie — February 9, 2012 @ 12:30 pm

  2. All I could think about during Jamie’s awkward scene was Reba McIntyre’s “Here’s your one chance Fancy, don’t let me down!”. I wonder if she listened to that song for inspiration, even down to wearing a red dress, right before trying to tackle Ben? Bless her heart is right–I think she’s such a catch, but not for this bachelor!

    Courtney is tacky. Ben is even tackier for coming out and expecting the 6 girls he brought on the date with him to be topless. I think we were all expecting his reaction to be a bit like Emily’s–”Classy, right?”, but instead he applauds her for being a skank. He knows exactly what he wants, and that’s why he’s going after Courtney.

    I was surprised Blakely went home! She really grew on me! I think her confidence for the 2-on-1 date was to shake Rachel up (which it did), and to mask her actual nervousness. She was all mush underneath that confidence. I love how she playfully handled her jealousy that Kacie B. got the one-on-one date and broke the tension with humor by tackling her friend. Very cool :) She also never talked smack to the camera about Rachel, whereas Rachel reverted to Shawntel-like bashing of Blakely. Not cool :(

    Love your recaps Ashley, I look forward to them every week!! The captions CRACK me up!! You’re the only blog I’ve read so far that noticed how non-compassionate/unemotional Ben was during Kacie’s opening up about her eating disorders. I watched that whole date, with his hair sticking off so nasty and his caveman like responses to her and thought….they are all fighting over THAT? (insert Courtney’s “that’s what I’m trying to marry face?!” here! Haha! That was great!!)

    Keep it coming! Love your twitter comments too!

  3. Ashley, your recaps are always the funniest of the bunch!

    Comment by J — February 9, 2012 @ 12:53 pm

  4. Ashley, you make it sound like Ben and Courtney are downright cruel, although you have longed for men (or at least cried over) men who could be considered unsympathetic, or who struggle with their feelings, such as Brad Womack. Maybe you shouldn’t assert so proudly anymore that you dated him, but oh wait, you are kind of “in the public eye” because you DID in fact date him

    You are really starting to go off on people’s faces. Jesus girl. Even Rachel can’t be spared. Then again, she wasn’t exactly nice to Shawntel…

    Comment by Lola — February 9, 2012 @ 12:56 pm

  5. My favorite caption: Get the F*&* out of our village! lol. Needed that laugh today. Thanks.

  6. Ashley…I really do love your recaps and look forward to them weekly but I do have to say something that has been bothering me. First, I do want to point out that I disagreed with Ben and Courtney skinny dipping, I thought it was very disrespectful to the other girls. But, to call Courtney the devil when you don’t even know the girl is VERY wrong…you should know better than anyone how edited this show is, not only do they edit it to death but they twist up the voice overs and scenes so much it makes me dizzy. The reason I watch the show is because it’s just plain hilarious.
    Remember everyone…It’s all about the Ratings!!!

    Comment by Melanie — February 9, 2012 @ 1:22 pm

  7. Love your blog! Just one thing…I believe Emily told Ben she was in love with the chief, not her dog. I wish Ben had some substance-what a disappointment!

    Comment by Robin — February 9, 2012 @ 1:28 pm

  8. Ashley-I LOVE your blog. The photos with captions are unbeatable. Good job!

    Comment by Sarah — February 9, 2012 @ 1:33 pm

  9. Totally agree about Kacie B, unfortunately I think she lacks a certain kind of confidence to keep Ben’s interest. And if he were interested enough in her, then I think he would try more to bring it out of her.

    Honestly, I kind of feel like he is sabotaging a lot of the relationships he is luke warm about because he would really like to just leave and have a private weekend with Courtney.

    Love your comments as always and screen shots though!

    Comment by liza — February 9, 2012 @ 1:35 pm

  10. Ashley – when she was talking about ‘another man’ – it was not her dog she was talking about but the Chief from the village they visited!

    Comment by ADR — February 9, 2012 @ 1:46 pm

  11. Ok dear lord – it was the chief – I amended this on my personal blog. I think if it was her dog it would be funnier.

    Comment by Ashley — February 9, 2012 @ 1:58 pm

  12. Aren’t you overjoyed you made the right choice Ashley!!! Ben and Courtney are not the brightest bulbs in the deck. Check out the video Ben made on you tube!! What is that boy thinking????No doubt with his tiny little head!!! Worst bachelor season ever!!

    Comment by Roxanne — February 9, 2012 @ 2:14 pm

  13. Wow, you try way to hard to be funny. Are you bipolar? On meds, cause I think you just may be. You’re welcome.

    Comment by no YOU shut up — February 9, 2012 @ 2:36 pm

  14. this is hilarious ! I hate Courtney

    Comment by hahah(: — February 9, 2012 @ 2:45 pm

  15. Ben and Courtney probably have already broken up if she is the one poor Ben selects!!

    Comment by Roxanne — February 9, 2012 @ 3:11 pm

  16. You wore that dress waaaay better Ashley!!

    Comment by Kelli — February 9, 2012 @ 3:13 pm

  17. Why do get the feeling that in a month after the finale airs all the people ( Ben and the ladies) that are made fun of by ‘bachelor nation’ bloggers will be BFFs…giving each other make up tips and retweeting each other!

    Enjoy the entertainment the show is providing and move on to better things in ur life. Jeez!

    Comment by Camile — February 9, 2012 @ 3:14 pm

  18. I love your blog. Just found it recently, went back and read all the episodes to catch up. Your photos and captions are my favorite part. I think most people read a blog like this because it’s entertaining. And sometimes to be entertaining, YES, you have to make fun of people. I can’t believe that people actually post negative comments on here about your writing style. Why don’t they just not read it if they don’t like it? But for every negative comment you have a ton of positive ones, so keep up the good work.

    Courtney IS mean. They definitely do edit the show a bunch, but the fact remains that she did say those things. Hey, here is a funny tidbit, Courtney reminds me of Jack Black. Watch next week, and you will see it too!

    I was kind of hoping that he would let go of both girls on the 2 on 1 date. They are both dreadfully boring. Why did he keep Rachel. She’s next to go! Sad to say, I am betting on a relationship coming out of this that doesn’t last longer than The Woman Tell All taping.

    Great post! The meaner the better IMO.

    Comment by Marie — February 9, 2012 @ 3:23 pm

  19. ashley your blogs are the best!!!!! haters are haters don’t mind them… and keep writing!!! i love that what you write is so real and totally honest. i loveeee Kacie B. and lindzi. i do think courtney is the devil so she remains that lol but your awesome keep them coming! xoxo

  20. “But if any of those girls found out at that point that Ben had skinny dipped with Courtney, I guarantee you that they would have walked out. I’m sure that they wouldn’t have held Ben in the high-regard that a lot of them seem to hold him to and they should have been given the respect of full-disclosure.”

    My opinion of it all week–nicely said. Ben got upset and was rude to Casey about her having feelings for an ex-boyfriend she was trying to move on from (and not telling him)….yet he’s not being completely honest with any of these girls either. Right on the money, Ash–keep it up!

    Comment by I Concur! — February 9, 2012 @ 3:46 pm

  21. Ashley-your blogs are hilarious and I totally look forward to them. I wouldn’t worry about the VERY few people who are writing not nice things to you-I’m not so sure it isn’t Courtney herself! Keep it up, girl!

    Comment by Kay — February 9, 2012 @ 4:17 pm

  22. I love your blog. You’re so funny. I love the pic with Courtney as the devil. She definitely acts the part! And the picture of Lindzi with the “skank” bubble had me laughing.

    Comment by Phoebe — February 9, 2012 @ 5:40 pm

  23. You are hilarious!! Excellent recap :) )

    Comment by Liz — February 9, 2012 @ 5:48 pm

  24. Ben is hammered all the time, so obvious, not cool Stormhorse, big jerk.

    Comment by Hootie — February 9, 2012 @ 6:04 pm

  25. Ashley,
    I LOVE your blog! Girl, you are super funny and I look foward to reading EVERY SINGLE WEEK!

    Don’t let a bunch of hating b*tches upset you! Courtney is acting like the devil and you have the right to say it! I think its funny that they get mad at you for saying cruel things about her (when its actually not even that cruel) YET they write cruel comments. How is this is any better?

    OH, and dont get me started on the person who could not even put their name so they just put “J” talking nonsense about how you dated Brad and longed for him blah blah blah. 1. grow a pair and put your name on here if you want to TRY and call someone out 2. how are they going to compare your relationship with brad to ben and courtneys LOL NOT EVEN CLOSE. This is a show to find love and yes it is in the publics eye… your judging her why? Obviously you like it if your watching the show!

    Then their is this Kelli chick who is talking trash about how she bets you all are going to be BFF’s after the show and to move on with you life. Well Kelli… why dont you move one with your life since you want to be a negative nancy to someone just bc they entertain us with their AWESOME blog… dont hate bc your some NOBODY sitting on your couch being judgemental instead of someone who has actually been apart of this show. Excuse some of them for making friends while they were there.

    I do not get why ppl have to be so damn cruel.ITS A BLOG PPL! Stop taking it so damn personal! Didnt their mothers ever teach them that if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say anything at all!

    Sorry had to get my rant on :) Keep up the GREAT BLOGGING! and here is a friendly reminder to all you haters: IF YOU DONT LIKE WHAT SHE HAS TO WRITE THEN DONT READ IT! its real simple. :)

    Comment by Reese — February 9, 2012 @ 6:16 pm

  26. The winners on this season are just like they were for the past two Bachelor episodes. The girls that get sent home are definitely the winners. Someone asked Jesse C if he thought the 25 girls on this season would have had any interest in Ben if they met him on the street. The consensus seems to be NO. Overlooking the fact he is the Bachelor or is part owner of a winery how many of this blogs female readers would be interested without either of those facts?

    Comment by Divr — February 9, 2012 @ 6:16 pm

  27. I barely catch the last hour of the bachelor Monday nights but no worries your blog catches me up, and entertains. I did see the part where Ben was completely upset with Casey for not being up front with him sooner so other people could stay on so why wasn’t he honest about skinny dipping with one of the bachelorettes-seems like a double standard of honesty. When Ashley was honest with the group about Bentley she dealt with the storm-why is Ben holding back when this is on National TV? Its like Kim Kardashian having “a private moment” as the cameras roll. What am I missing? I didn’t see the scene where Courtney was distracting Ben on a date with another but read about it in the blogs-one of your bachelor nation pals commented:Wait, vampires can go swimming in the tropics? Thanks for the entertainment. Fun Blog

    Comment by Juliette — February 9, 2012 @ 6:45 pm

  28. I hope Ben picks Courtney now. I cant believe i said that. They obviously have chemistry and both just ‘get’ each other. The other girls are waaaaay to good for Ben. Those lovely ladies, Kacie, Nikki, Emily and Lindzi are beautiful and inteliigent and classy. Too good for Ben.

    Comment by Anna — February 9, 2012 @ 6:49 pm

  29. I think Ben is quite interesting. I mean nothing wring in trying to figure your life out and that’s what you should be doing when you’re that age right. I mean if you’ve got everything all figured out when you’re 27, that just means you have one sad life. Life has so much to offer you and ppl who ‘settle’ for being average are not real men Ashley. You speak like a teenager sometimes.

    I mean come on. I know Courtney seems a bit weird on tv but really none of those other girls (except emily – I love her) seem like they are smart or intelligent enough to even be witty. At least Courtney is hilarious! You gotta know it takes intelligence to be funny. I mean could you imagine a life with Kacie B, going to the grocery store, popping out babies and watching the bachelor for the rest of your life. I can see why he wldnt choose her. WIth someone like EMily or Courtney, he could potentially have a wild, interesting life. Travelling, fighting, being crazy, experiencing the world! Something you typical women who go on the bachelor wouldnt understand, so whateves.

  30. I love the pictures and funny captions – it makes reading the recap so much more entertaining and fun. Thanks for taking the time to make it so entertaining for us readers.

    I am torn about Courtney – I am sure that she’s lacking compassion for others and morality, but I feel like she is just like the devil in that she feeds off on all this negative attention. It took so long to get rid of Paris Hilton then now the Kartrashians, I just feel like the tipping point that turns our world into a living Hell might be her. I just don’t want the reign of the evil one to start or us to help her benefit financially from her evilness.

    Comment by Leslie — February 9, 2012 @ 10:50 pm

  31. @ banana…I AGREE WITH YOU 100% !!!!!
    At least Courtney is full of life and doesn’t take herself too seriously. The other girls are the total opposites…that’s probably why Ben picks Courtney.
    @ Melanie…I agree with you too…C’mon people this show is edited to death…I can’t believe Courtney is as bad as they show her. I really don’t think she should be called the devil either.

    Comment by Annie — February 10, 2012 @ 5:00 am

  32. Bless you heart Ashley. The hypocrisy of calling out Courtney’s mean ways when this blog is just a mean attack on Courtney’s behavior and Ben’s decisions is astounding. I am not saying you have to praise them if their behavior appalls you but calling people devils does not make you any better. Maybe you can read Dave and Michael’s blogs to see how constructive criticism can be done without making yourself stoop so low.

    Comment by Christine — February 10, 2012 @ 5:01 am

  33. If you don’t like my blog – seriously please don’t read it. You reading it and commenting on it is only helping me get more views – so thanks! :) hope y’all have a great day and find something better to do with your life than telling me how bad I suck. I could honestly care less and I will continue to write MY blog how I want to.

    Comment by Ashley — February 10, 2012 @ 6:18 am

  34. I had to comment here as this is the first episode of the ‘Bachelor’ I have ever watched. My guy friends have been watching this show for years now and I have never understood why; with this episode I finally get it. I mean to have 20+ women handpicked to fight your affection is a novel idea. However, don’t find women who are confident, independent, and have some sort of moral compass. Let’s get women who have daddy issues, whore themselves for television, and have a history of opening their legs for douchebags. This shit is right up my alley! Have any of these ladies done a sex tape yet? I suppose it’s a matter of time…looking forward to yours Ashley!!

    Comment by Dick Buttons — February 10, 2012 @ 8:44 am

  35. Ashley, I think that you do a great job with your blog. You clearly put a lot of effort into it with all the pictures so don’t let anyone make you feel bad about YOUR opinions. I don’t always agree with harsh comments about Courtney. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t think she’s showcasing herself very well, and she may in fact be an awful person… But I think she’s destroying her image enough on her own. It definitely doesn’t bother me like it does some people on here because all I can think about is your exit on Brad’s season that broke my heart. You seem like one of the sweetest, loveliest and obviously beautiful girls that’s ever been on the show. So I hope you don’t let the negative comments on here bring you down. It’s your opinion people are coming on here to read, so I hope you keep giving your honest opinions – we don’t all have to agree but that’s the fun about it :) Thanks again for the effort you put into these blogs! Can’t wait for next week!

  36. Me thinks Ben may just deserve Courtney..

    Comment by Shelley — February 10, 2012 @ 9:49 am

  37. Ashley, If you want to call Courtney the devil now, that’s your right. But if she’s your new BFF who “just got a really bad edit” six months from now well….bless your heart.

    Comment by Lauren — February 10, 2012 @ 10:06 am

  38. I hate to be this person but, grammar pet peeve: It’s “Ashley H and MY date” not “I’s date.” Just remove other person’s name and think of how you’d say it then. I have never seen a group mess this up as consistently as the Bachelor Family.

    Comment by Jenn — February 10, 2012 @ 10:39 am

  39. Ok let me just clear this up so I don’t have to say it ever again. If I ever do meet Courtney (which I doubt I will bc leads and final 2 people rarely come to reunions) I would be nice and cordial and if she asked me why I called her the devil – I would say because you acted like one. I saw Ryan Park at the reunion and I told him that I was sorry I gave him such a hard time about the sun hearts but they were pretty funny. He was a good sport about it. For the record, everything I’ve said about Courtney isn’t mean but if she’s acting heartless to the other girls I think I can call her out on it. Lauren – if I act like a complete hypocrite in 6 months then call me out on it. For now, I think you should be less worried about my future actions.

    Comment by Ashley — February 10, 2012 @ 11:19 am

  40. sure ashley we want more people to read your blog and realise what a douche you are! haha! and thanks, yes I am bored on my lunch break and a bachelor fan which is kind of lame I admit.

    Umm..Wait a minute, judge judy, arent you the one who had such an awesome life and so many better things to do that you actually spent 3 precious months of your life ON the Bachelor, looking for loooooove. Now you blog about it as well…hahahhahhahah! The irony dripping out of your comment is just spectacular honey.

    p.s you write like an illiterate. Might want to get your hands on a thesaurus next time.

    Comment by jenny — February 10, 2012 @ 11:26 am

  41. Wow Jenny are you Courtney’s twin devil sister???

    Comment by Roxanne — February 10, 2012 @ 12:04 pm

  42. Wow… just wow. There sure are a lot of people lacking a sense of humor here. “OMG you’re so totally mean, Ashley, I would NEVER poke fun at anyone because I’m a saint… buttttttttt I’m gonna take a break from clubbing baby seals to post a comment claiming you have mental health issues and are illiterate.”

    And Jenny? Honey? You’re right, you’re kinda lame. xoxoxoxo

    Comment by Shannon — February 10, 2012 @ 12:53 pm

  43. I am a bachelor fan myself and since I am someone who has never been a contestant in this show I applaud myself for being open-minded about Courtney this season. I do not judge anyone just from a TV edit and I reserve the right to defend a God-created individual from being labelled the devil.

  44. Ashley I love your blog!! It’s hilarious and I look forward to reading it every week!! It always makes my day :) In my opinion I love Kacie. B and instead of rooting for my favorite to stay this year I want her to get out of there as fast as she can! I think she deserves a lot better!

  45. Some of you on here on just plain mean. Ashley is not bipolar nor is she illiterate or a douche. Don’t come on here just to talk smack about people. It’s not cool. Ashley, I love your blog and think it’s hysterical! Some people just need to lighten up! :) Keep on writing!

  46. ATTENTION EVERYONE:

    Please read West Lee’s blog…it sums it up very well about Courtney. Also, read the comment that Annie made under his blog. I’m so glad to see someone write a blog that makes sense.

    Don’t get me wrong I like Ashley’s blog but West’s blog explains some things that I find very interesting.

  48. I don’t understand why people would search for and read someone’s blog then criticize how it’s written. If you have a strong opinion about the show or how blogs are written…. Here’s an idea:
    WRITE YOUR OWN!
    Ashley is clearly just having fun and writing about what most of America is thinking. She isn’t making wild accusations and has two hours a week of video proof to prove that Courtney acts like a whack-job on the show. Describing her as the devil to the most “normal” people is acceptable…. If you are a bible thumper with no sense of humor than maybe you shouldn’t even own a tv in the first place. Don’t shows like The Bachelor conflicting with your religious beliefs? Sex before marriage, dating multiple people, intimate moments…. Oh dear!

    On another note, keep up the good work, Ashley! You are hilarious!

  49. Okay, time for Courtney to go – anyone who is that full of themselves, need only to look in the mirror and talk to themselves. She’s that girl and personally makes me ill.

  50. By the way, I adore Kasie B. Doesn’t say much but what she does say seems genuine. Ben, if you have a brain you will figure it out.

  51. I read a “spoiler” where Ben picked Courtney. I wonder how he will feel when she gets naked, flirts, and skinny dips or more with his partners and any man within 2 feet.

    Ashley, you are right on.

  53. There’s NO SUCH WORD as I’s! I’ve heard SEVERAL people on The Bachelor and The Bachlorette use this and it’s SO INCORRECT! It’s MY folks, not I’s! As in Ashley’s and MY dance; NOT Ashley and I’s dance!

  55. I don’t agree that Casey was definitely wrong to go on the show. I don’t see anything wrong with dating if you are still in love with your ex as long as you are ready to move past him/her. It’s understandable that Ben had a problem with it if he didn’t want to take that risk with her, but dating is not always perfect and falling out of love can take a long time. Ben obviously only pursues girls who are unavailable, and I think that is much worse than still being in the process of getting over someone. For all we know, Ben is still in love with Ashley. It hasn’t been long!!! Some say that you don’t move past someone until you find someone new. I’m surprised you didn’t ask about Casey for us to comment on. To elaborate about Ben’s relationship issues, he said his past girlfriends didn’t want him back (include Ashley in that one); he fell in love with Ashley, someone who obviously was not mentally ready to have a functional relationship; he was sure Ashley was going to accept his proposal; and he’s really into a woman who is obviously fake, doesn’t care about him, and is manipulative. If he chooses her, once their relationship crashes and burns, maybe he’ll go to therapy, do The Bachelor again, and be a normal person this time.
