Ashley explains in her personal blog why she falls for rumored runner-up Ben F. and describes their romantic first date in Chiang Mai, Thailand!
During the June 20 episode of The Bachelorette, there’s only one moment that Ashley Hebert seems genuinely happy — and that’s on her first one-on-one date with sexy, rumored runner-up Ben Flajnik Ashley appears to fall head over heels for him, almost forgetting that bad boy Bentley Williams ever broke her heart!
Ben was irresistible. “All I wanted to do was kiss him,” remembers Ashley. “But just my luck — we were at one of the holiest places in Thailand and could not kiss. The tension was tangible.”
But the duo still had a great time exploring Chiang Mai. “At the marketplace, we were able to listen to Thai music, taste Thai cuisine (which happens to be my favorite) and visit one of the oldest temples in the world,” Ashley brags.
And Ashley wouldn’t have wanted to be with anyone else on her Chiang Mai date. “Ben stood out to me more than anyone else on the orphanage date the week prior,” explains Ashley. “He was funny, witty, artistic and great with the kids. On top of that, he looked great in a beanie! I could not wait to take him on the first date in Chiang Mai, a city of great cultural significance.”
