Ashley’s still destroyed because of Bentley — and finding out that Ben Castoriano may not be there for the right reasons as well makes her feel worse! Then Ames is rushed to the hospital after as disastrous group date!
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert‘s still stressing over playboy Bentley Williams’ departure to the point of distraction where it’s affecting her relationships with the other guys. And it doesn’t help matters when she finds out that Ben Castoriano wants to pursue online dating after the show ends — or that Ames Brown gets a concussion during the group date!
Ashley’s first date is with Ben Flajnik — the sexy winemaker from Calif. The chemistry is definitely there between them and Ashley knows it. She happily gives him a rose.
But after this date, the 27 year-old dental student’s world comes crashing down.
During the group date, Ashley takes the guys to a boxing tournament — only the men are the ones fighting! And poor Ames doesn’t leave with the group. He instead gets rushed to the hospital after Ryan Park knocks him in the face leaving him with a mild concussion. Blake Julian gets the group date rose.
Next Ashley goes on a two-on-one date with Ben C. and William Holman. Immediately William takes Ashley aside and tells her that Ben C. has been bragging that he wants to go sign up for an online dating service after he leaves. Ashley in turn sends Ben C. packing almost seconds later.
Later in the evening Ashley continues the date with William, but says goodbye to him as well after she realizes that she doesn’t have feelings for him anymore.
Before the rose ceremony, Ashley sits down to talk with host Chris Harrison and confesses that she needs to figure out a way to get closure with Bentley. “I think that I’m pretty certain about who I want to move forward with, but there is something on my mind,” she explains. “It’s Bentley and what could have been.”
“I know it’s not a good thing,” she adds. “I need to close this Bentley thing off. I want to talk to him and ask him a couple of simple questions.”
Chris promises to help Ashley. “We’re going to make something happen,” he says.
During the rose ceremony, Nick Peterson is the only guy who doesn’t receive a rose.
