Ashley’s sister Chrystie tells Ashley that she’s ‘too much for’ J.P: ‘You’re too young and I think you’re too spunky!’
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert is so excited to introduce the two remaining men — J.P. Rosenbaum and Ben Flajnik — to her family now that she’s at the end of her journey and ready to get engaged. She thinks that they are going love the guys, especially J.P. — but it comes as a complete surprise when her sister Chrystie Hebert-Corns doesn’t approve of J.P.!
“Today’s going so well,” Ashley gushes to the cameras. “I don’t think anyone in my family is intimidating. Everyone’s really welcoming. I don’t think that there is anything that J.P. could do that they would feel like he wasn’t right for me.”
Ashley’s shocked when Chrystie talks about J.P. “So what’s going on here? I don’t think he’s the one,” says Chrystie. “I don’t see it. I think he’s a great guy but like, nah ahh. Just the way that you are with him, I’m not seeing it. I think you’re too much for him.”
“What do you mean?” Ashley asks, clearly upset.
“I think you’re too young and I think you’re too spunky and he’s just kind of a little bit older and a little bit more demure,” responds Chrystie. “Why are you crying?”
Ashley pours her heart out: “Because I didn’t think you wouldn’t like him. It’s heartbreaking because I really, really care about him.”
Ashley takes a breather to go walk on the beach and think about what she wants to say to her sister. My sister doesn’t think that J.P. is the person for me,” she narrates. “It was just harsh and uncalled for and I need to talk to my sister because if that were to happen again, I’m scared I’m going to leave here alone.”
She meets with her sister again to try and talk the situation through. “You know with J.P., bringing him here, I was really nervous,” admits Ashley. “I think that came across as discomfort I guess.”
“You want me to like him and that’s your issue,” returns Chrystie. “Am I here to sugar coat it? I don’t get it. I have to be true to how I’m feeling and I’m not feeling it … I’m not saying you’d be better with [Brad Womack], but I’m saying the way that you felt and the way that you looked at him, were much more yourself.”
Ashley tries one last time to make her sister understand. “Both of these guys are so different. It’s not even close,” she states. “I really wanted you guys to like J.P. and I came here — I’m going to cry again. It pisses me off because you are saying everything that’s in my head. I know all of these things and I’m trying to figure it out, but you just come across like you’re being such a b*tch!”
