You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.
I must be in a minority here, but I'm really enjoying Ashley.
With Ali, it always seemed like she was reading from a script and when she had 1 on 1 time with the guys, she never seemed to listen to what they were saying.
Ashley listens and comments in a manner that makes one feel that she did listen. She doesn't talk just to hear herself talk.
Bentley / Pinto is obviously a Fleiss machination. He is the bad boy incarnate. The vast majority of young women do fall prey to these types of guys, whether they're secure or insecure. It's part of life.
I like JP - he seems really natural, cute and down to earth.
I thought Ashley looked great in that white dress. She's got a terrific body on her.
To Thine Own Self Be True
So, if you're asked to roast the bachelorette, what can you say? Isn't the object to get her to like you?
Having said that, William is a self-proclaimed wannabe standup comedian and he probably couldn't resist. As he also couldn't resist taking more one-on-one time with her when some of the other guys hadn't had a date with her yet. I think he's cute but I'm not sure I like him.
I hate to say it, but there's something about Ames that's growing on me. (Except I wish he'd tucked in his shirttail at the rose ceremony.)
J.P. WOWZA! He's cute and well-spoken (what little I've heard.) I hope he goes far.
As a Georgian, I also like Constantine. His pink floss "ring" the first night was a catchy idea. It is kinda funny that he and Deanna are both Georgians and both Greek - at least I'm guessing he's of Greek decent. A little random.
Overall, I'd say there's a crop of great looking guys. I didn't watch Ali's season (or Jillian's or Jakes - got burned out after Jason's) but, having watched all the others, I'd say this is a pretty high quality group. There were a few gorgeous ones on Deanna's season but also a lot that were not. I always felt like they had a hard time finding guys for her.
I also have to add that this group of men is a pretty good-looking bunch. Their photos on the abc board don't do them justice. I think they looked a lot more handsome last night than they had for the premiere, for some reason.
I like Mickey, but I don't think he'll be around long.
I think JP's great - and both of the Bens.
Actually, as I told my daughter, I really think I like a lot of them. I didn't want Matt to leave.
And of course, I can't stand Bentley. Does anyone think, after all of his rants, they will turn his edit around and he will actually fall for her in the end? Just speculating!
Jeff will be interesting. I would have lost patience with a 35-year old man who wears a mask a long time ago!
There's something about West that bothers me. It's not his past; it's something else.
Stay tuned for "Dancing with the Dancers"!
First time posting this season, havent read thru a lot of the posts yet. Are there any other Ryan (solar guy) fans out there? I think he is the total package: gorgeous, successful, sweet & humble. Cant wait to watch more of him!!!! I also think this is a great bunch of guys overall. I am really enjoying watching them.
As for Micky's date, Ashley said when it was all over that she would have given him the rose regardless of what happened with the coin toss. Therefore, I'm guessing she would also have still led him down to the concert. That whole flip a coin thing was just silly.
William...William...I'm so disappointed. That date with Ashley seemed so wonderful, the two of you had such a great vibe, and then you went and irritated me with that stunt at the cocktail party. First stealing Ashley away, which was selfish, and then going on about your date, which was tactless. As for next week, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt until we actually see the whole roast. This show is notorious for editing a scene to make it look like it turned out one way when it was actually something else.
