This really is turning out to be the worst season. And I really tried to give Ashley the benefit of the doubt at first, though I didn't want her as the star to begin with - she annoyed me w/Brad. But, I found myself rooting for her to find happiness and love, in the beginning. (Even knowing how this show is produced w/no interest in her happiness and love in mind.)
Now ... as much as I think some of the guys are adorable and enamored w/her, I don't want her to hurt them. I'm feeling more protective of some of them than of her. She's been pouty, subdued, sulking about Bentley, and wasting their time in a beautiful place. Ames is too sweet, JP is too charming, Ben is too real, to be subjected to this immature little girl. I don't know why they'd be interested in her after all this- she's been acting like a baby, even in front of them.
I don't ever remember feeling this disinterested in the star, and disappointed in all the seasons I've watched.
