In her personal video blog, Emily gives the rundown of why Ashley & Ben have chemistry, how it’s good that Bentley’s coming back and why Ames may get his heart broken!

Emily Maynard knows how these Bachelorette games work. And watching her friend and former castmate Ashley Hebert take the journey as The Bachelorette hasn’t been easy for Emily to do because of the whole bad boy Bentley Williams drama. But Emily thinks that during the June 20 episode, the game might have taken a turn for the better — and that Ashley is falling for Ben Flajnik, the sexy winemaker from California!

“It started with Ben F. getting his first one-on-one date,” Emily describes in her personal video blog on Warner Bros Bachelor site. “And to be honest, it’s one of the first dates that I’m seeing any kind of potential to go beyond just friends.”

Emily believes that Ashley and Ben’s personalities just click. “After living with Ashley, I know that she’s really funny — and I think that Ben shares that same silliness,” gushes Emily. “I think that they have a lot of potential, so I’m excited to see how their relationship turns out.”

Emily also has her eye on Ames Brown, especially after the poor guy got knocked out and rushed to the hospital for a minor concussion during the last episode. “Poor Ames. Bless his heart. I really like him a lot,” she says. “I think that he seems genuinely sweet.”

But to Emily, it doesn’t seem like Ashley and Ames have chemistry. “I don’t know if I’m seeing it between him and Ashley though,” she explains. “I just hope he doesn’t get his heart broken, because I really like him.”

And Emily hopes that Bentley’s return will help Ashley be able to move forward. “Next week we see the return of Bentley unfortunately, but I think it could be a good thing just so that Ashley can finally see him for what he is,” notes Emily. “See his true colors and really put some closure to that and put him behind her and start to give the other guys a chance.”

“Hopefully we’ll start to see a love story unfold,” Emily says as she signs off.

BFFs — do you think Emily is right that Ashley has a lot of potential with Ben F.?
