    Maybe. But I think it much more likely he was hoping to have sex with her before he left. Yes, I do think he's that much of a pig.

After Ashley was so heartbroken, and no villains were stepping up to the plate, TPTB contacted Bentley and asked if he would like the role, with the offer of $$$ to tempt him. All he'd have to do is film some PI's with him saying some unkind things about Ashley. And he accepted and gave them LOTS to work with.

It was just too much. At that point, why keep trying? He took himself out of the running for more roses. Was it to keep his options open in case he could come back? If he really felt like he did in those PI's, then give the guy an Oscar. He used every moment of camera time trying to make her believe he really was into her, even up to the end. I know there are evil and/or self-centered people in the world. Is Bentley really one of them, or a pawn for Fleiss?
    I see you and I are thinking alike. He certainly went to extremes, with all the smack he was shown to say. I too wondered why it had to take so long to say goodbye. Why bother with someone that's not your taste. When they were hugging Ashley had let go but Bentley held on. My theory is, that he never had any intentions of falling for her, but it was happening to him, and the way he could avoid that, was to get the heck out of town. Sometimes you fall in your own ditch. He certainly was Fleiss pawn. If he only wanted to get laid, as someone put it, he could have waited for the FD, I pretty sure smooth operator could have managed to accomplish that.

    Do we know if they are screening personality disorders out....or in? Because I don't think I have ever looked at the cast of this show and thought "Wow, what a nice looking group of mentally-healthy young people!"

    My take? They are all, as always, acting their part -- which, of course, doesn't preclude any of them from also being sick. In my opinion, a very high percentage of every cast is both.

    I don't know but I've been wondering the same thing too!

    ETA - IF he comes back then I will believe that TPTB put him up to this for the drama and shame on them! He left no doubt that he wasn't interested in Ashley in any way other than a hook-up. There should be NO reason for us to see him again unless they wanted to create more havoc in her head...

    I assume that it means Fleiss brought him back in for a visit or something at some point.

    nope

    I heard on Access Hollywood (I think it was that show!) had an interview with his ex wife - and its to be continued today -

    also Ryan Seacrest did interview on radio Chris H about Bentley - basically Chris said Ashley had more info on Bentley than anyone on any season, they did not show Ashley his clips he was saying things about her - a previous Bach texted her and warned her - but she was determined to use that "clean slate"

    so not sure, but thats what I remember

    I don't know if it's okay to reply with this info or not, but I happened on an individual's blog who says she knows him. For what it's worth, she and her friends were "Team Bentley" (I think they may work for or with him) and said that the truth would come out that he wasn't the bad guy he was shown on the show.

    My opinion is somewhere in the middle. I don't think he's an innocent angel but I have watched enough reality tv to know that they have no hesitation to slice and dice PI's and edit the utter life out of people to create drama and make them conform to the role they want played. Remember the season years ago that one of the rejected girls was leaving without a rose and wouldn't cry. She said later that they finally started talking about her Grandmother who'd died. That brought the tears and they were able to continue filming her PI with her showing appropriate distress.

    I agree with your theory because he does have the expression of someone that can't believe that he's actually falling for someone that he originally wasn't going to fall for & he looked like a deer caught in highlights. That's my take on his BLF. However that still doesn't excuse or explain why he said the hurtful things he said about Ashley in PI's or even told her there might be a dot dot dot when he had no intention of coming back. Hopefully he will realise how hurtful they were to Ashley and apologise to her later in the future.

    They did the same thing with Ed on Jillian's season. Only difference is he didn't say on the show that he wasn't into Jill - but he did tell others. Then they brought him back - just another recycled idea.
