Bentley Bachelorette 2011 Drama: Scripted for Ratings or The Real Deal?
There’s a lot of controversy surrounding Bachelorette 2011 contestant Bentley Williams. From the minute the season began, the drama in the house has been fueled by Bentley and his inappropriate and insincere comments.
Immediately upon meeting Ashley as the Bachelorette, Bentley told the camera that he wished it was Emily instead. Ashley was warned by pal Michelle Money (from Brad’s season of The Bachelor) that Bentley was bad news but Ashley insisted on getting to know Bentley before drawing her own conclusions.
In last week’s episode, Bentley and Ashley have some one-on-one time (see video below) where Ashley begs Bentley to stay on the show. She pleads and pleads with him to stay, all while he’s talking to the camera behind her back saying things like “I came into this thinking Ashley was not attractive at all…I’ll have her, you know, tickle my pickle…that’s the extent of my interest. She’s not my type…not an Emily.”
He also says “there’s no question that Ashley doesn’t have the checklist that I’m looking for in a future wife…I couldn’t give a f-ck about her.”
For those of you who don’t know, Bentley then eliminates himself tonight and returns briefly in episode 6 but doesn’t stay very long.
While the people backing the show – like Chris Harrison and Mike Fleiss – insist everything between Bentley and Ashley is the real deal, others think the whole situation is scripted for good television.
To add insult to injury, Ashley actually lets Bentley back on the show – he will be making his return in episode 6 to extend his 15 minutes a little longer.
So tell me what you think: Bentley Williams – Scripted or The Real Deal?
