In his personal blog, Chris reveals why Ashley had to say goodbye to Ames: she just wasn’t connecting with him like she was with the other guys!
During the July 18 episode of The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert said goodbye to Ames Brown after visiting his family in Chadds Ford, Penn. As host Chris Harrison puts in in his personal Entertainment Weekly blog, Ashley just wasn’t feeling it with Ames. Despite trying to find a connection with him, Ashley ended up having to admit that their relationship was going nowhere!
“After the four hometowns with four good men I think it was clear that Ashley really has a solid relationship building with Ben [Flajnik], J.P. [Rosenbaum] and Constantine [Tzortzis],” writes Chris. “Ames was just too far behind and Ashley felt more of a friendship than a budding romance with him.”
Ames had one last shot to change his relationship with Ashley, but he blew it. “Although Ashley was curious to find out where a guy like Ames came from, he really had the most to prove on his visit,” explains Chris. “He had to really blow Ashley away to raise their relationship to the level of the other contestants.
Ames’ “sister really put it best: If there’s passion and a spark then let there be a little fire,” adds Chris.
But it was clear that Ashley wasn’t falling for Ames. “There is no fire between them,” At least not one that’s burning nearly as hot as it is with the other guys.”
