Will You Accept this Rose? Vol 4

This season's Bachey has had it's share of ups & downs (mostly downs), but I'm glad I watched! There were times when I wanted to shake some sense into Ashley, and other times when I was proud of the person she blossomed into, despite the constant invasion of privacy and inevitable criticism from the public.

Two weeks ago, Ashley went to each of the guy's hometowns to meet their families, and ultimately she decided to let Ames go. I was sad to see him go, but understood that their relationship had moved into the "friend zone" for Ashley. I was most confused by Constantine because from the very beginning there had been zero connection between him and Ashley.

That's why I wasn't surprised when Constantine eliminated himself in this week's episode. You could tell that he was unsure of how he felt about Ashley and wanted to be honest with both himself and Ashley about where their relationship stood. I respected his decision and I'm sure any other guy in Constantine's shoes may have accepted the fantasy suite invitation before bailing. {PS - I'll be going home next month and am determined to meet Constantine at his restaurant...wish me luck!}

On a side note, back to the hometowns...don't you wonder what exactly JP's ex-girlfriend did to hurt him so much? His family was very concerned with him getting hurt again, more so than just not wanting the normal trauma that goes along with a breakup. Thoughts please!

Back to this week, what was up with the return of Ryan? I've heard rumors that he will be the next Bachelor and if that's the case, I won't be watching! I did feel bad that he had to go through rejection again, but he has to be crazy if he thought he stood a chance with Ashley. Even last night, you could tell how disinterested she was. I also found his twitching, fidgeting, rocking back and forth and the look in his eye kinda disturbing.

Between the two remaining guys, I think it's obvious who the winner is. While Ben has captured Ashley's heart and she seems truly happy with him, it pales in comparison to Ashley's happiness when she is with JP. She is unable to contain herself around JP and each look they share is filled with love and passion.

I'd be so surprised if it's not JP proposing next week.

What are your final thoughts on the Bachelorette? Who would you choose and who would you have sent packing?

Personally, I love JP and can relate to why he has made it so far. Ben, not so much. I really liked him at the beginning, but he is too sensitive for my taste. Not very "manly" if you will (which is fine, just not for me). What guy has to be asked twice to put suntan lotion all over a hot girl? Apparently, Ben does.

Girl…I have been waiting all morning for this!!!

To be honest…this week has been HECTIC with my sisters wedding this Sat, so I totally forgot about it until the last part!

Anyways, I love your post and it made me laugh so hard…especially about putting sunscreen on twice! hahahaha!

I agree…I'm sure JP will be proposing! And DYING to know what broke his heart so badly before!

I wnat you to go find Constantine and let us know how his restaurant is! In the meantime, I'll be looking for Ames!!! Everyone is making so much fun of me for liking him, but I think he's so sweet!

Thanks for filling me in on the pieces I missed!!! I'll be SURE to tune in this monday!!!

I loved Ames too but he definitely wasn't the one for her. I like JP but I worry about his jealousy and wonder if he is still around after having watched the season.

I haven't understood the connection with her and Ben but part of me thinks he may be the better choice but she'll go for JP.

I just watched the Ali and Roberto update from a couple weeks ago and I loved Ali's thoughts on the Bentley situation. I'm glad someone finally said it.

I want to see what ring JP chooses for her! Also, JP's whole "I'm not telling her I love her until I know I'm the one" thing is driving me nuts! He knows he loves her but won't say it until she doesn't something for it. Seems a little childish to me.

Im SO glad you wrote about this! I have known for a while now that Constantine was not into her. It was so obvious! But, I def think that it will be JP. Although they both really care about her. And Ryan P? Come on. I miss Ames! xxxoo

I thought it was ridiculous that Ryan came back to leave again! And I love JP. He's just so dang cute. I'm obsessed. If she doesn't marry him, I will.

I won't believe it if she doesn't pick JP. He is just so cute, and I think great for her. I know I say this every year, but I really hope they make it work
