Ashley tells us that she gave sexy ‘Bachelorette’ contest Ryan P. the first impression rose because he has all the qualities she’s looking for in a husband!
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert confesses in her personal People magazine blog that she was blown away by Ryan Park the moment he stepped out of the limo! That’s why he was first person she pulled aside for some one-on-one time during the cocktail party on the May 23 premiere episode — and then handed him the first impression rose. Any woman would probably agree with Ashley that Ryan’s the whole package!
“He deserved the first impression rose more than anyone,” Ashley gushes. “On top of that, when he walked out of the limo, I nearly fainted.”
On the other hand, Ashley wasn’t too sure about Bentley Williams‘ reasoning for coming on the show. Prior to his arrival, a friend of Ashley’s warned her that he was only going there to promote his career. But Bentley wooed Ashley with his handsome looks and charm so she let down her guard and gave him a rose.
Ashley explains her reasoning for giving Bentley the go ahead to move to the next round of competition. “Bentley. Need I say more? It’s always been important to me to judge a person based on what I know of them, so going into this first night I had guards up, but he easily broke them down with his good looks and savvy way with words,” Ashley admits. “How could I not have trusted him? Every woman in my shoes would have given him a rose too.”
Towards the end of the premiere episode, Ashley claimed that she felt her husband was in her presence. “I know it may sound crazy to hear me say that I think my husband was in the room on the first night, but I felt confident in what my gut was telling me,” Ashley writes.
