Chris describes the situation: ‘It’s like walking up to your boyfriend saying for the last couple of months I’ve been sleeping with another guy!’
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert may finally be getting the closure she needs to mend her broken heart over this bad boy Bentley Williams situation when he visits her in Hong Kong — but now she has a whole new problem to deal with. She has to tell the remaining contestants what’s been going on with Bentley. And host Chris Harrison says that is just doesn’t go down well!
“People are anticipating the Bentley thing so much, but what really happens next week is telling the guys,” Chris tells TV Guide. “She gets to this happy place and is almost a little arrogant and cocky because of it, but I don’t think she thought through the effect it was going to have on the guys.”
The guys don’t take the news lightly. “It’s like you walking up to your boyfriend and saying, ‘For the last couple of months I’ve been sleeping with another guy, but the good news is I don’t want to have sex with him anymore,'” Chris explains. “She didn’t really understand it until our deliberation and all of a sudden things start to unravel in the cocktail party in Hong Kong.”
But at least Ashley got the opportunity to confront Bentley, because if she didn’t, it would have been a lot worse. “We got to a point in Chiang Mai where I was sitting there telling her this isn’t going to work, what you’re doing is a disaster, you’re not going to find love and these guys are going to hate you,” remembers Chris. “She said, ‘I need to do something’ and I said I will make this happen, I don’t know how, but we were able to figure out how to get him to Hong Kong.”
Chris had to remind Ashley that her actions would come back to haunt her. “I was like: These are good guys, a million people are going to be watching the show, screaming at you, saying are you out of your mind wasting this opportunity,” says Chris. “I think she needed tough love at that point.”
