In her blog, she defends emotional reactions, which to me is her supporting JP's behavior in this episode; furthermore, both JP and Ashley are defending each other in their vlogs/blogs and using the terms, "good things up ahead" (JP in his vlog, Ashley in her 1:1 time with him). Aside from them batting me over the head with it, I'd be shocked if they don't end up as the final couple, though in the past two weeks, I have really begun to root for Ben. I don't see enough romance on Ashley's end towards Ames or on Constantine's end towards Ashley. I do wish that, if Ben gets to Fiji and Ashley's not feeling it, she dumps him in advance at F3 rather than lead him on into the FRC.

JP was not portrayed in as positive a light last night.
However, I don't think I'm ready to throw him under the bus yet.
This is, after all, the heavily edited and staged THe Bachelorette brought to you by Mike Fleiss!!
I actually thought Emily came across a lot better last night.
She also looked better with the highlighted hair, as opposed to all one shade and fake looking bleached blond.
I do think the veneers are too big for her face, though, and make her talk funny.
And the over application of makeup detracts from her very pretty face andmakes her look much older and kind of an old school Country Music Star.
I'm still not buying the relationship between she / Brad. I think that was mostly for the show.
I agree with others that if she was, indeed, heartfelt regarding the paparrazzi / media invasion on their lives, I sure cannot accept it if she turns around and becomes the next "Bette." I also do still find her very inarticulate - she said "you know" at least 25 times - and boring.
But, like I said, I do think she came across better last night.

I'm in the minority too, I CAN NOT stand Ryan, Jake 2.0 indeed, ugg please don't let him be the next Bachelor. I would love to see Ames as the Bach. Still loving JP I thought he was just being honest with his feelings.
Emily- go away
I think she talks like a 25 year old. She looks way older than that and reminds me of all the housewives that are blonde. I don't know what her purpose for doing the show was but I don't think it was to hook up with a 38 year old man. I also don't think she would have been Chris L.'s type. He got him a good woman.......loved Peyton.
Any man that marries her IMO will have to be able to support her in the fashion she is used to.
As for Ashley this is the first show I even watched a smidgen and I saw the JP jealous scene and it reminds me of other seasons. Her season for what little bit I watched last night was boring so I turned it. Not into her final however many are left.
