Re: Question of Ashley as educated/intelligent -
1. Penn Dental is consistently ranked as one of the top Dental Schools in the country - generally less than 10% of those applying are admitted - and it is an Ivy League institution (all of Penn's programs, graduate and undergraduate, are difficult to get into).
2. Educated/intelligent does not automatically translate into being brilliant on-screen or being a great communicator, in general.
3. Fleiss and Ashley should have pretty equal responsibility of showcasing her relative success - I think if we saw her in more of her own element (dental class, performing dental procedures with patients), we may have an entirely different perspective. Her insecurities are not based on a lack of intellect, intelligence or general knowledge, but probably more closely related to a history of relationship issues or perhaps a lack of dating experience relative to many other women her age.

I've been thinking. Most seasons we hear that the F1 has a bit of trouble coping with watching the show and seeing their now "fiance" with the other contestants on dates and especially kissing and being intimate. I would think that this is taken to a whole new level by Ashley's behavior this season in regards to Bentley. If I were the F1, I would have questions about her sincerity and committment to me after the way she has pined all season for B, saying he was the one she saw herself with in the end. It's hard to imagine how this will be rehabilitated. So...does she just say, "guys, I've been pining for B this whole time you were putting yourselves out there and now I'm over him" and they're okay with that? Maybe someone such as William would be, but most of those there at that point are successful, intelligent men outside of the show. It's not like they couldn't get a girl otherwise. I have a hard time understanding how the F1 wouldn't seriously question her judgement and honesty (because, you know, honesty is so important to her...) after watching the show. Could he really trust her?
All the fake, overly edited drama is there because none of these people are really that interesting. I miss Chris L.!!!
Lord help us with the next Bachelor if it is one of these guys...other than possibly JP or Ames...they may be tolerable. What a sad state of affairs. I can barely tolerate watching the show anymore. Ashley is immature and acts like a silly teenager ... actually that's giving teenagers a bad wrap. It's not silly fun anymore...in fact it's not even entertaining and is so bad that I am falling asleep while watching the show and when I do watch, I FF through most of it.
Try to be as nice a person as your dog thinks you are.
No offense to fans of either. I find both "sports" to be extremely barbaric.
As for the boxing match several other sites are talking about it..apparently it went on for a while longer..I don't know who the F2 were in the match but from what I have read both Constanine and JP dropped out and refused to take part in it any further this is on several other sites so I am hoping its not considered a spoiler
SAVE THE WHALES..THE OCEANS DIE..WE DIE!!!
Not a spoiler as it happened on a past show. Maybe they refused to box because Ames was being loaded into the ambulance at that time and everyone was gathered around watching.
