And Ashley knew she was going to pick J.P., so why did she hook up with Ben the night before the final rose ceremony?
What on earth was Bachelorette Ashley Hebert thinking when she let Ben Flajnik get down on knee and propose to her during the Aug. 1 season finale? Why did she hook up with Ben the night before the final rose ceremony? Ashley went into the final day of taping knowing that she was going to dump Ben and give her final rose to J.P. Rosenbaum. It was so malicious of her to hurt Ben the way that she did!
Ashley knew that Ben was going to get hurt and she still let it happen. The night before the proposals, she hooked up with Ben. She clearly lead him on as they rolled around on his bed in the privacy of his hotel room. Ashley had her legs wrapped around Ben’s waist! She didn’t give him one reason to doubt that she would pick him in the end.
In her blog, Ashley used the excuse that she froze and didn’t know how to act or what to say when she saw Ben walking up the pathway. She claimed she was scared to dump him, but it came off as if she was setting him up for heartache.
So like host Chris Harrison said in his blog, Ben was completely justified to freak out on Ashley they way he did when she dumped him. He had no clue it was coming!
Ashley, I am honestly so glad that you found love and are happily engaged to J.P. You guys are an adorable couple! You made the best choice for you, but it doesn’t excuse the fact that you crushed Ben. Maybe I shouldn’t be disappointed with you — maybe it’s editing or production that set up his exit to look that way. But if that’s the truth, you should have put your foot down and guarded his heart. He gave you his to protect, and you just ripped it out.
Watch my video with Leigh Blickley below and hear us talk about Ben’s heartbreak!
BFFs — do you agree with me that Ashley was wrong for crushing Ben’s heart?
