What do you get when you combine a group of men in a mansion whose soul purpose is to impress a sexy woman? The answer is ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ starring Ashley Hebert from last season’s Bachelor on channel 15 in Phoenix. We know how women act when they travel in packs but what about men? Surprisingly, a lot like women; they gossip, they try to stand out if they are interested, and they laugh when one of their pack members show weakness.
First, you have the masked man Jeff who doesn’t take off his mask at all, in fact season teasers show he keeps this mask on long after the premiere. The problem is the novelty of the mask was great initially… but like always, novelties wear off quickly. He may have gotten the second rose of the night, but how long will Ashley H put up with the game he is playing?
You can’t help but feel sorry for the second entertaining man of the night. Tim (whether it is nerves or low tolerance) drank too much alcohol and passed out long before the rose ceremony. We all have been with someone who drank too much (some even on the first night you meet) but when you are competing against more than 20 men for the heart of one woman… passing out is not the best first impression (check out a clip of Tim here). Ashley H did the best thing she could have, she asked the rest of the men to help her put him in the car and sent him packing.
Another season shocker was the drama that surrounded Bentley (check out the details here). Ashley H was told prior to the taping that she needed to watch out for this guy. He put on a good front with Ashley but viewers from home got to hear what he said when Ashley H was not around and her friend was 100% right. He told the cameras he was upset because Ryan received the first impression rose, not that he was attracted to her or anything but he was just very competitive.
The rest of the night was pretty basic for the ‘Bachelorette’ season premiere. Ashley took her time and got to know the men so that she could make the best decision for the rose ceremony. The contestants still in the running for Ashley’s heart are below. Who is your favorite? What do you think of the masked man, Bentley, and how Ashley handled Tim? Feel free to leave a comment below.
