If you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette and you don’t want to know what happens, do not read any further – warning there are major spoilers ahead.
Bachelor Bentley Williams sparked a significant amount of controversy in the first two episodes of the new season. His comments about how he detested kissing Ashley and how she doesn’t have the checklist of what he’s looking for in a wife were inappropriate but his behavior tonight was downright unacceptable.
After going on a group date with Ashley, Bentley reveals to her the next morning that he’s leaving the show because he misses his daughter. The reality is that he doesn’t like Ashley and is not interested in her at all and he was wishing it was Emily Maynard as the Bachelorette instead of Ashley.
Needless to say, Ashley is crushed and begins crying uncontrollable, whining about how she doesn’t know how she’ll go on with the show…blah, blah, blah.
Did Ashley deserve what Bentley did to her? Probably not. Was she naïve to think he was actually into her when she was told by one of her friends that he was bad news? Absolutely.
Fans may be upset to learn that tonight’s episode is not the last we’ll see of Mr. Bentley – he’ll be returning in episode 6 to have another chance to talk to Ashley.
Bentley vs. Ashley – who’s side are you on after tonight’s fiasco?
