'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert Has Best Chemistry With J.P. Rosenbaum, Says Eliminated Contestant West Lee!

West Lee says that he thinks J.P. is ‘the best pick’ for Ashley! Do you agree?

While her relationship with player Bentley Williams has basically come to an end — except for his reappearance on the upcoming fifth episode — Bachelorette Ashley Hebert‘s connection with rumored winner J.P. Rosenbaum has grown stronger. And it’s obvious to the other contestants that they are developing a strong bond, shares former contender West Lee!

“Based on my gut and interacting with people, I really thought that J.P. was going to be one that she picked just because they have that natural chemistry,” West tells during a conference call June 16. “You could see whenever we were on a group date together, she tended to gravitate towards him, and there was just an easy kind of connection that was evident.”

“I think he might be the best pick,” adds West.

West, who was the only contestant to be kicked off during episode four, admits that he didn’t have the same connection with Ashley that J.P. did. “There were definitely some qualities that I saw in her that I thought were attractive qualities that would be good to have in a partner,” he says. “But I don’t know if I would say there was a connection per se on the same level as there was between her and say, J.P.”

But West knows that he’s ready to find love himself. “I think that the most important part about a relationship is chemistry — not necessarily physical chemistry — I mean, obviously that’s important, but I mean sort of a deep connection that you can kind of see on the show between Ashley and J.P,” explains J.P. “There’s just this ease to the relationship and you just naturally have this give or take kind of deal.”

BFFs — do you agree with West that J.P. is the right pick for Ashley?
