Ashley didn’t see Bentley tell the cameras that he wasn’t attracted to her or that he wished Emily Maynard was ‘The Bachlorette’ — but she was warned twice to send him packing!

Poor Bachelorette Ashley Hebert —  she’s had more heartache than any girl deserves! And now she’s falling for bad boy Bentley Williams on The Bachelorette despite a friend warning her to that he was coming on the show to chase fame instead of love. Host Chris Harrison even begged Ashley to send Bentley away — but she didn’t listen and gave him a rose!

“You didn’t even see how much I begged her and bagged on this guy on Night 1,” Chris tells TV Guide. “When she’s telling me the story, I’m like, ‘His name’s Bentley. Right there, run!’ She said I’m going with my gut and she gave the guy a rose.”

Chris thinks that Bentley just isn’t a good guy. “He reminds me of every bad guy in all the John Hughes movies,” says Chris. His name should be Blaine and he should drive a red Porsche or something.”

Now some people may think that ABC pushed Ashley to keep Bentley around to spark some drama, but Chris says it was all Ashley’s idea to give him the rose.

“Everyone says the producers are jerks and how could [we] do that to her,” explains Chris. “But she always has the decision, she can always get rid of this guy.”
