I loved the finale.
I did think the editing did a really good job of trying to make us think it might be Ben, even though week after week we've been seeing the undeniable chemistry between JP and Ashley.
Nice to see another finale comprised of 2 really good men.
I hope the 2 can make it.
They seem to be another couple who has the same kind of chemistry as Trista and Ryan and Ali and Roberto. I hope it lasts for them.
And, I honestly don't know that she'd have had a more "profound" relationship with Ben.
Most of the great relationships out there are not profound; they simply provide the perfect complement to each other.
