I can't stop myself. I wish I didn't watch this stupid show, but clearly it's beyond my self-control. It's so stupid. It makes no sense. Blah blah blah...now let's analyze tonight's episode.
Mask guy removed the mask. Did anyone else think it was hilarious that every time they showed him with the mask, there was creepy Phantom of the Opera organ music? Classic! So he takes off the mask and reveals an older-than-anyone-expected guy who is attractive...but there was just something about him that made me want to say, "just put it back on."
Then there was the guy who "roasted" her by saying something like "imagine how I felt when I saw you. I thought it was going to be Emily or Chantal." Ya know, but since I'm all signed up, quit my job, and am here I'll stick around. K? Then he cries because he hurt her feelings. Okey doke, jackass.
Then there's Bentley. He's the jackwad that has had tidbits of, "I don't like her much" peppered in from day one. Ashley got a text that he wasn't there "for the right reasons." So like any other woman, she falls for the bad boy and suddenly can't live without her. Leading up to his departure tonight, we get little flakes of "I'm not attracted to her." Nice. What kills me, though, is how they string the poor girl along so that we see this big build up and then get to enjoy watching her cry her heart out. Ugh! Why oh why oh why! They NEVER EVER set the Bachelor up like that! Wonder how dumb she'll feel when she watches it later.
So on a date the day after Bentley's big departure, she forgoes the huge shindig everyone else got to hang out in her glasses and jammies in front of a fire. WHAT?! I get it. You're sad. You are having a bad day. You're in a heightened emotional state. But that means big glasses and plaid jammy pants? And wait...he brought his too? AND you pinned his rose onto his white cotton undershirt? Okaaaaaaaaaaaay.
On final rose night, she's still crying over Bentley. She wasn't sure she could go on. Mask guy gets the ax. "Wish you were someone else" got one. Oh Lord.
