“The Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert, who was rejected by Brad Womack after the hometown dates in the latest season of “The Bachelor”, is once again looking for love in the wrong place as she is certain she will find her future husband in the unique group of 25 bachelors ready to vie for her heart in the new season of the ABC’s famous dating show, which premiere on Monday (May 23).
Ashley was a bit insecure at first, but she quickly gets more comfortable after meeting the guys. Ashley is shocked and surprise when she found she had a bachelor with a drinking problem, another with a mask and she was also warned that one of them was there for the wrong reasons. Only one?
After the first meet and greet, Ashley offered 18 bachelors a rose, which means for seven guys the first date was the end of the line. For the next four consecutive dates, two in the US and the other two in Thailand, Ashley will eliminated three boys (one eliminates himself!) until she reaches her final 8 bachelors.
Ashley takes her men to Hong Kong and Taiwan, where she eliminates four guys before finally being able to get to know her final four bachelors in the hometown dates. The final 2 guys will be revealed after the overnight dates. Who will be the final 4? And the final 2? Will Ashley pick her bachelor and will he propose?
