Since I am not good at sleuthing, I tried not to post in the spoiler thread. However, I did enjoy reading it and it will be missed. Always liked being "in the know" among friends who were just tv watchers who "got it all wrong", but I chose not to spill the beans as to not spoil it for them.
I'm not excited about Ashley being the Bachelorette for some of the same reasons already stated by others. I may see how she acts in the first couple of episodes (she may be different as the lead) and want to scope the guys out. If it's all a wash, then I will be doing something different on Monday nights.
