On Monday, June 20, "The Bachelorette" continued the romantic journey of Ashley Hebert and the remaining bachelors in Thailand. Ben F. was the lucky man who got a one-on-one date. They went to a marketplace and a temple before having a dinner.
The couple was treated with fire-breathing dancers' performance and they kissed after avoiding the temptation at the temple because the place is sacred. Ashley ended up giving a rose to Ben F.
For a group date, Constantine, Ames, Nick, Blake, Lucas, Ryan, J.P. and Mickey must fight to impress Ashley. They got Muay Thai fight training before entering the ring. The date did not result well for Ames who got a mild concussion and was admitted to hospital.
Ashley and other contestants were worried about Ames, but he managed to return just in time for the cocktail party. He joked that the prognosis was that he's "totally in love" with Ashley, but the bachelorette gave the rose to Blake.
On a two-on-one date, William and Ben C. went rafting with Ashley. William played his trick, trying to get rid of Ben by telling Ashley that Ben has indicated his interest in pursuing online dating after he leaves the show. This prompted Ashley to ask Ben to leave the date and the show as well.
But William was not necessarily safe. During their dinner, Ashley realized they lost the spark she felt on the first date and decided to dump him. "I am the world's biggest ... jackass," said a dejected William as Ashley dramatically threw the rose in a fire.
Ashley must send another guy home, and she chose to cut Nick during the rose ceremony. Although three more men have been axed, the suitors might find their biggest rival back next week as Ashley revealed to host Chris Harrison that Bentley still haunts her.
Ashley wanted to meet Bentley once again so that they can get a clean break and she can start a real, honest relationship. A sneak peek to the next episode hints that the biggest badass on the show will indeed return as the remaining bachelors and Ashley head to Hong Kong.
