It’s that time of year; summer has begun, all of our favorite television shows have ended and many of us hopeless romantics, or those who just enjoy watching a cheesy reality show unfold, have to succumb to watching the Bachelorette. This leaves us time to discuss who is being bashed this season. Instead of finding one of the contestants to poke fun of, I (along with the rest of the viewers) am going to have to go right for the Bachelorette herself, Ashley Herbert. Bless her heart, but this poor girl has completely humiliated herself this season. The fun-loving, bubbly dentist finds herself falling for the bad boy, Bentley, even after she was warned by a previous Bachelor contestant that he is bad news (nicknamed “Bad News Bentley). Bentely, sweet to Ashley’s face, sour behind her back, leaves the show because “he misses his daughter,” when in reality he has no interest in pursuing Ashley. While reading my Twitter feed during each episode, it becomes more apparent that viewers are quite annoyed with Ashley’s inability to move on from this creep.
Here are some of the infamous Bentley quotes (From Omg.Yahoo.com)
On being a douche: “The competition makes it exciting, competing for her. That’s the extent in terms of my interest. You know, I mean, she’s just not my type.”
On marrying Ashley: “I mean, that just sounds terrible. I would literally rather be, like, swimming in pee than trying to plan my wedding with her. Because I’m not thinking like, omigosh, this is like the girl of my dreams. I’m thinking, like, she’s not my type.”
On winning an “immunity” rose, Ashley’s affections: “Can we just bag this and go play blackjack? … It’s almost like the game’s over before we even push the start button. Like, let’s not even play.”
On potentially kissing Ashley: “Actions speak louder than words. Do I need to force this kiss? Do I need to ram my tongue down her throat?”
On actually kissing Ashley: “That was kind of a bor — It started out good but it sucked towards the end. But it’s more of, like, an expected feeling. I’d be lying to everyone if I’m, like, ‘Yeah, I’m in this ’til the end. I’m gonna ride this out for two months.’ There’s no way I’m going to last that long.”
On his plans to leave the show on next week’s episode: “I came in thinking that Ashley was not attractive at all. I’m not feeling it. … I’m gonna make Ashley cry. I hope my hair looks OK.”
