Bachelorette Ashley got a ring from her guy at the finale, and then he… (major spoilers)

Neither Kaiser, Bedhead nor I watch the Bachelorette shows, but I swear I overheard three conversations about the finale for The Bachelor the last time I was in the states. These shows are popular, and I keep meaning to check them out. (Blame the new HBO Go. I’m about to watch all six seasons of Oz this summer and won’t have much time for network television.) Anyway, based on my knowledge of this show gleaned entirely from gossip magazines and clips on The Soup, Ashley has piss poor taste in men and keeps getting waylaid by a dude named Bentley who was using her for the fame while playing her for a fool. Bentley left the show on his own volition, telling the cameras that he wasn’t into Ashley, but then he came back sweet talking and finally gave Ashley the chance to get a clue. She sent him on his way and recently blogged that she understands that he was a scam artist and is over him and ready to find love.

Major spoilers for this season of the Bachelorette
According to OK! Magazine, Ashley found her temporary prince and it was J.P. I guess this news has already been leaked by other outlets, but OK! has the exclusive detail that Ashley and J.P. have unsurprisingly broken up already, with J.P. doing the dumping. The way OK! tells it, J.P. messed with Ashley’s head the same way Bentley did and “turned out to be a complete fake… [who] was just using her to be famous.” This girl should have gone to counseling before she went on a reality show looking for love. Here’s part of OK!‘s report:

“The word is that the guy was just using her to be famous,” a source tells OK!. “He turned out to be a complete fake! Apparently, he accepted the rose and gave her the engagement ring, but then as soon as the cameras stopped rolling, he did a total 180.”

The source insists that J.P. manipulated Ashley and played on her insecurity. “He made her feel like she was ‘the one’ and then totally betrayed her…”

Naturally, the unluckiest Bachelorette is embarrassed. “She’s been pretty much beside herself,” explains the source.

But Ashley should find comfort in the fact that she wasn’t the only one duped. “The guys in the house thought he was sincere, and so did everyone involved with the show… This guy pretended to be so sincere for the whole time; he was actually the biggest user of the bunch.”

[From OK! Magazine, print edition, July 11, 2011]

Bad luck to anyone who thinks they can find love on The Bachelorette or Bachelor, but they should know better given those shows’ track records. They may get lucky at the alumni reunions though. There have been some random hookups there.

Is Ashley one of those women who gets dumped on no matter what she does? I know women like that and you want to shake them and tell them they’re better than the assh*les they pick every damn time. “But I love him,” they protest, “you should see how he is when we’re alone!” Those type of guys rarely go for women who won’t put up with their sh*t. And those are the type of guys who end up reality shows, vying for their 15 minutes.

    I randomly watch sometimes and I tried watching Bachelor Pad which only made me realize that without the idealistic romantic bent the bachelor has, all the contestants are just pretty losers.

    Watching this season I can honestly say Ashley is a fool. She should have gone for Ames or Ben, but I liked JP too so this is kinda sad.

    Anyone who thinks they’re going to find love on a reality show deserves what they get. It’s a duh, wrapped in a duh, served on a duh by a duh in a duh hat. (Love & miss you Michael K! Try to have fun!)

    The ONLY reason to go on a reality show is because you are a fame-whore. Please don’t try to convince us otherwise.

  3. brin says:

    I haven’t watched the Bachelor/ette in years….thanks for reminding me why!

    *waving at bellaluna*

  4. We all fell for JP, what a jerk. Why do these guys think that being an a-hole will make them famous in a good way? If this is true I hope women of worth will steer clear from here on out.

  5. Skins says:

    This show is total crap. Watch Oz, you won’t regret it

  6. NYCgal says:

    I don’t think this is true. According to Reality Steve’s site (, they’re still together as of this morning. And she wrote that she’s in love on her blog within the past couple days. Also, she slipped on Jimmy Kimmel’s show a few nights ago and said goodnight to J.P.

    Not that I really give a shit, in any case….

  7. bigchili says:

    I’m sorry to hear that JP was a using, fame-ho, but I not surprised. Not am I surprised that Ashley’s already been dumped. She came across as very insecure and needy. I can’t imagine any guy could put up that for very long if the editing was very accurate. Girl needs to get some therapy and self esteem and then she’ll find her prince (off of a reality tv dating show). I hope she does.

  8. Quest says:

    It’s a friggin reality show…love my ass…60 seconds of fame – absolutely.

    That’s showbiz!

  9. DanDan says:

    Weeelll…no surprise there. That’s what happens when you try looking for love on TV… Ashley does seem really insecure and I think that those guys are totally playing with her feelings. Sadsies.

  10. Pseudoangie says:

    J.P looks like Tyler Durden

  11. Stubbylove says:

    Enjoy watching OZ – you’ll become a Dean Winters-aholic like the rest of us – convince Kaiser!!!

  12. original kate says:

    i can’t believe this crap is still on. ugh.

  13. vivien says:

    she should have gone with Ames.

  14. HotPockets says:

    Well, a lot of us women do love a$$holes, so it only makes sense.

    I also don’t understand why you would ever go on the bachelor or the bachelorette to claim any sort of fame. The best you’re going to get is a gossip mag side bar for one week.

  15. kiki_kaluah says:

    Yeah, this is a great example of the sanctity of marriage we are trying to uphold. Go on a reality TV show, date multiple men/women at the same time for the sake of entertainment and get married!!

  16. June says:

    So the idea is to get engaged to someone you’ve known for two-three weeks? Awesome.

  17. Amy says:

    I haven’t watched this show in awhile. I got back into it with Jake and Ali but I haven’t kept up with it since leaving the States. Reality Steve is definitely the dude who spills the beans each season. That’s how the magazines get their info.

  18. G. says:

    Don’t watch the show, but she’s a cute girl. Reality relationships never last though.

  19. Heatherrr says:

    I don’t believe it! I love JP, OKAY??!! Plus look how cute they are together. Awhh. Yeah Im a sucker, so what!

  20. Calli Pygian says:

    @ Vivienne… agreed–philosopher type is a plus.

  21. Hannah says:

    @NYCgal I’m pretty sure she said “goodnight Jimmy” on the show not “goodnight JP” sorry to burst your bubble

  22. sandy sanders says:

    it’s easy for everyone to judge ash, but i admit i did the same. she appears to be such a little tease shaking her tiny a** around, constantly showing off her bulllegged skinny legs etc, and lies to these men so what in the heck did she exspect? Personally, she should have picked Ames, he is such a sweetheart. He would have been a free spirit, taken wonderful care of her etc but, she’s a little HO, SO, she got what she got. Maybe Brad will take her back for an all nighter for that sexual chemestry she keeps wanting in a man, she’s such a dinngy thing if he does it right maybe she will move to Autisn to play in his bar for even MORE ATTENTION for her lame ego. Must MPO.

  23. Leigh says:


    This is contrary to a story I read on reality Steve.. that she chose JP and that they are still together…
    My guess is that all these “spoilers” are leaked by the network to keep the viewers who actually watch, watching.

    The whole show is overproduced. Anyone who doesn’t see that is blind. It’s mindless entertainment… oh, but I love it. lol.

  24. Judy says:

    Have no doubt it’s scripted, but you are WRONG about only one couple succeeding. In addition to Trista and her husband, Jason married Molly, and Ali and Roberto are engaged.

  25. Wonderful website. Plenty of helpful info here. I am sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious. And naturally, thanks for your effort!

  26. Thanks for any other informative web site. The place else may I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal approach? I have a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such info.
