TVDIVAGAL Show You Gotta Watch Tonight: The Bachelorette Season Finale!By Delaina Dixon | August 1, 2011 | Entertainment
Talk about a whirlwind relationship! It feels like just yesterday we joined Ashley Herbert on her global odyssey to find love on The Bachelorette. Tonight, she’ll reveal which man is her one and only: J.P. Rosenbaum or Ben Castoriano?
If you believe the rumors, Ashley has chosen… well, I don’t want to ruin it (you can click here if you must know), but I will tell you this: in my mind, she’d picked the wrong guy for her. (My fave’s name has a vowel!)
Ashley has had a rough season. Bentley dissed her on national TV; William broke her down at the roast; and two guys walked out on her, including Constantine, who left her high and dry on the overnight. COLD!
So Ashley must have felt like a million bucks when Ryan Park returned to win her back. I mean he traveled all the way to Fiji and hung out there for a few days… that must have been really tough. But Ryan really thought it was worth the sacrifice.
“When I showed up at her place she was so surprised. It was classic, totally classic. I thought the show did a decent job of capturing that,” he shares.
“The energy level was really, really high there and I did feel that there was a chance — not a great chance. Going out there, it was somewhat of a long shot. But IΓÇÖll call myself an internal optimist. ItΓÇÖs just that I see the brighter side of things. And so I thought, you know what, I have nothing to lose here and IΓÇÖm going for it. So, yes, I was hopeful.”
You didn’t get the girl, Ryan… but I sure the hotel had a great mini-bar!
See who Ashley chooses (and if she proves me wrong!) on The Bachelorette season finale, Monday, Aug. 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
