June 25, 2011 – Recent Bachelorette cast-off, William Holman, thought that he really had a connection with Ashley Hebert before his surprise elimination from the show.
Speaking to fans through a “farewell” video, William reveals that he felt he and Ashley had a good chance at romance.
“I felt like we hit it off, Vegas was great,” William said, referring to their first date in Las Vegas where Ashley made him go through a “pretend” wedding.

However, on a later group date, where the guys got to “roast” Ashley, William went a little too far with his jokes. But, the 26-year-old dental student did feel a connection with him at the time and forgave him.
When the gang went to Thailand, a different William began to surface, one that really showcased the “30-year-old boy” he kept referring himself as. So, when the cell phone salesman told Ashley about another contestant’s supposed comments about online dating, things came into perspective.

“I wanted to make sure she knew that somebody else was not there for the right reasons,” William said, talking about how fellow competitor, Ben C, allegedly boasted about going on online dating sites after he left the show. William regrettably added that it was “not the best time to tell her.”
Ashley flat out told William during dinner that she no longer felt the spark with him that was present during their first date. She ended the date and sent him packing.

“I hope you guys enjoyed watching me on the show,” William concluded, “I’m sorry that it came to a halt, but who has two thumbs and didn’t get a rose?”
